The Match

The Match

Wednesday’s clash between the Spurs and Palace started quietly. Though the Spurs got some chances, they were not that exciting. However, this has been the story of the team for quite some time now. The first halves look unconvincing and disjointed for the Spurs. Therefore, the fans have now become habituated to this. However, the second halves have been really stunning for them. It seems as if the Spurs spring back to life as the second halves of the games begin. The same thing happened this Wednesday.

After an unimpressive first half, the team led by Kane showed a huge improvement in the second half. As soon as the referee started off the final half of the game, the Spurs started to put pressure on the defence line of Crystal Palace. As a result, within three minutes from the start of the half, Kane rose above the defenders to head home the opener for the Spurs. In fact, the ball from Perisic was too good to miss. Soon after that, Kane fired one more into the back of the Palace nets to extend the lead to 2-0. In fact, this goal was even more delightful to watch.

Since then the Spurs became unstoppable and Crystal Palace looked like a twig caught in a sudden storm. In the 68th minute of the game, Matt Doherty scored the first goal of this season for him. In addition, Son Heung-min ended his goal drought after eight games. In the 72nd minute of the game, he made it 4-0 for the spurs. In the entire 2nd half, Crystal Palace looked really helpless and they even struggled to hold back the possession.

As the final whistle of the game came, the score was 4-0 in the favour of Tottenham. Though this was the second victory for the team since November, it took them to fifth place.

Though the chances are less, there is no harm in hoping. On the other hand, Crystal Palace’s mediocre season continues as they face yet another defeat. Let’s see where the end of the league places the teams.
