Juan Foyth scores winner as Tottenham beats Crystal Palace

After giving away two penalties last week, Juan FOYTH played hero in Tottenham's 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace.

Argentine centre-back Juan Foyth's first senior goal 24 minutes from time was the difference between the sides as a torrential downpour affected conditions.

Foyth endured a hard Premier League debut last time out against Wolves, conceding two penalties in Spurs' 3-2 win.

"I've compared him with Gabriel Batistuta because his mentality is similar". They did look threatening at times, but they lacked a cutting edge to their attacking play and will rue a number of golden opportunities they squandered. "Hugo is one of the best, there is no doubt".

"I was a centre-back and you're involved in these situations The trust from us is massive and from his team-mates".

Mauricio Pochettino has described Harry Kane as an "assassin" in front of goal, as he reflected on the striker's enduring finishing excellence and the tendency of English football fans to lurch from one extreme to the other in their analysis of England players. Only once have Spurs won more top-flight away games in a single calendar year (17 in 1960).

But contrary to Tottenham sides of old, Pochettino's current crop have shown a resilience to put a mounting injury list and uncertainty over when the club's new stadium will be completed behind them, to keep grinding out results. "I'm so happy for that".

The visitors were forced into a change after 23 minutes when defender Kieran Trippier picked up a knock and was replaced by Serge Aurier.

A minor hamstring injury had meant the hosts, who last won in the league without their influential forward at Sunderland in September 2016 and have struggled for goals all season, starting Andros Townsend and Jordan Ayew in an unfamiliar front two.

"I think he (Bamba) was in an offside position for the goal".

Hodgson knows that a lack of goals, and an over-reliance on star man Wilfried Zaha, has all too often cost his side this term, with a tally of eight eight goals scored - Zaha responsible for three of those - the fifth-worst record in the division.

- Palace have lost seven consecutive top-flight matches against a single opponent for the first time ever.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson reacted by introducing Jeffrey Schlupp for Max Meyer in the pursuit of greater width, and the winger almost rewarded him when crossing to Ayew on the counter before watching goalkeeper Hugo Lloris collect.
