Gazzaniga staying grounded after fine display in Tottenham's win over Palace

South Korean forward Son Heung Min's 64th-minute victor was a well-executed finish - quite out of keeping with the rest of his performance and that of his team.

Gazzaniga had not played in the Premier League since December 2015 and overcame a rocky start to deliver a fine performance, making three excellent saves to stop Palace opening the scoring.

With Hugo Lloris out, Michel Vorm had been in line for a rare league run-out, but he injured his knee in training on Saturday.

Spurs weren't anywhere near their best in the game at Wembley after their Champions League exertions over Real Madrid during the week, but with two shots on target, they grabbed all three points with Son's goal.

"There's no point beating Real Madrid on Wednesday if you can't win at here at home on the weekend as well".

Trump said there was something "appropriate" about keeping Saipov where he committed the crime, and tweeted, "Should move fast". Declaring an individual an enemy combatant allows investigators to interrogate the person without having a lawyer present.

There was little sign of the highlights to come when Gazzaniga was perhaps lucky not to be penalised in the third minute as he cuffed Mamadou Sakho around the head, rather than play the ball, under a teasing Zaha cross.

Dier added: "We knew it was going to be hard because of the midweek game, we had a lot of players missing as well, so this game was really important to continue that momentum from midweek".

The main talking point in a quiet first half came when Harry Kane picked up a knock following a challenge from Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Wilfried Zaha had a glorious opportunity when he rounded goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and dragged his shot wide of a gaping goal moments before Tottenham took the lead.

"We knew the quality they have and that they would dominate possession especially in the latter half of the middle".
