(EFE) – Tottenham Hotspur gave up their undefeated status in the Premier League with a horrible match against Crystal Palace (3-0) in which they ended up with ten players.
The expulsion of Japhet Tanganga in the 58th minute, for a double yellow card in just five minutes, precipitated the defeat of a Tottenham that was never comfortable at Selhurst Park and that hardly disturbed the goal of their rivals.
With several important casualties, such as Heung-Min Son and Stewen Bergwijn, both injured, and with Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso in Croatia, to avoid the United Kingdom quarantine, the ‘Spurs’ entrusted everything to a Harry Kane who was very only.
The clear dominance of the Palace, which did a lot of damage with Wilfred Zaha’s speed, intensified with the expulsion of Tanganga and the first warning came with a poisoned center that Sergio Reguilón, one of the best of his team, had to take out under sticks this Saturday.
Tottenham’s offensive production was already non-existent and it was a matter of time before the Palace, with one more man, beat Hugo Lloris. Ben Davies, who came in to reinforce the defense, committed a very clear hand inside the area 15 minutes from time, the referee whistled the penalty and Zaha tricked the French goalkeeper to make it 1-0.
The joy would be complete for the Palace when Odsonne Edouard, the great signing of the summer market, Scotland’s top scorer the last two seasons, jumped onto the pitch and seconds later, after an assist from Zaha, made it 2-0 and already in injury time, 3-0 to sentence Tottenham.
Palace get their first win of the season and have five points after four rounds, while Tottenham, who had won all three of their games without conceding to date, could lose the lead this day.
