After a strong first half from Palace, Kane scored in the 48th and 53rd minutes to change the momentum. On Wednesday, Tottenham defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 in the Premier League thanks to a quick double from Harry Kane. After a strong first half from Palace, Kane scored in the 48th and 53rd minutes to change the momentum.
The visitors won for the first time since the Premier League resumed following the World Cup break thanks to goals from Son Heung-min and Matt Doherty. This was their first victory since the league resumed. They had lost to Aston Villa at home after drawing with Brentford.
Kane’s two goals for Tottenham brought his total to 264, two more than Jimmy Greaves’ club record. His first goal also brought an end to the Spurs’ streak of 10 games in which they conceded the first goal. Tottenham moved five points ahead of sixth-place Liverpool and two points behind third- and fourth-place Newcastle and Manchester United, respectively. United leads by one game.
As the players left the tunnel, Palace’s fans gave them a round of applause for their performance in the first half. However, three minutes after the game started, Kane headed in a close-range cross from the left wing. When the ball fell to Bryan Gil on the right, Kane passed it to the England captain, who took one touch and shot quickly to send a low strike into the bottom left corner, doubling Kane’s score and extending Spurs’ lead.
Doherty made it 3-0 in the 68th minute with a low effort that was too strong for goalkeeper Vicente Guaita after Son’s cross accidentally got inside the area. Soon after, Son himself scored by deflecting a shot into the bottom corner after beating Marc Guehi to Kane’s high ball. The Spurs kept a clean sheet for the first time since October.
