Precious stone Palace finished 10-man Tottenham’s ideal beginning to the Premier League season as Wilfried Zaha’s punishment and a late twofold from Odsonne Edouard fixed a 3-0 success over the sad pioneers on Saturday.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side had Japhet Tanganga shipped off for two appointments one after another in the second half at Selhurst Park.
Zaha guaranteed Palace exploited their mathematical prevalence when he got from the spot after Ben Davies’ handball.
Edouard fell off the seat to wrap up the focuses with two objectives on his introduction following his £15 million ($20 million) move from Celtic in August.
Tottenham had begun an association crusade with three successes and three clean sheets without precedent for their set of experiences.
In any case, the north Londoners couldn’t expand that run as they took care of a dull showcase.
It was a sweet second for Patrick Vieira as the previous Arsenal midfielder got his first success as Palace manager to the detriment of his old club’s most despised opponents.
Vieira, who lost only two of 18 association games against Tottenham as a player, had neglected to win any of his first four matches in quite a while since succeeding Roy Hodgson at Palace.
Tottenham were well beneath their best without Son Heung-min after the South Korea forward experienced a calf injury on worldwide obligation.
Nuno’s men experienced another injury blow when England protector Eric Dier limped off from the beginning.
Dier was rattled by Palace striker Jordan Ayew when the pair battled to arrive at a feeble carry out by Tottenham guardian Hugo Lloris.
- Lethargic Tottenham –
In a sketchy first half scarred by lost passes and an absence of self-control in the last third, Zaha was the solitary splendid sparkle.
He cut inside for a low drive that streaked simply wide and made Palace’s best snapshot of the half minutes after the fact.
Beating debutant safeguard Emerson Royal and afterward Pierre Emile Hojbjerg down the conservative, Zaha chose Conor Gallagher for a short proximity shot that Lloris saved well.
Torpid Tottenham neglected to gather a solitary shot in the primary half.
At the point when Lucas Moura finished that dry spell before long the span, the Brazilian’s work – saved by Vicente Guaita – drew wry serenades of “we’ve had a shot” from the Tottenham fans.
Zaha and Tanganga were both booked after a fight following the Tottenham protector’s monstrous foul on the Ivorian forward.
Tanganga couldn’t hold his feelings under tight restraints and, only three minutes after the fact, he procured his walking orders subsequent to lurching into one more rough tackle on Ayew.
Passed on to play the most recent 32 minutes with 10 men, Tottenham went into self-protection mode, safeguarding somewhere down in their own half.
Be that as it may, Palace’s pressing factor was at long last remunerated in the 76th moment when Davies impeded Gallagher’s cross with his arm and Zaha moved forward to change over the punishment for his first objective this season.
Edouard heaped on the wretchedness for Tottenham in the 84th moment.
The French striker had been on for only seconds when he met Zaha’s cross with a clinical completion into the base corner with his first touch.
Edouard wasn’t done at this point and, in stoppage-time, he took Gallagher’s pass and directed his shot past Lloris to cover a unimaginable presentation.
