|Son Heung-Min (10, 23), van Aanholt (og 21)
With the September international break now over, and Tottenham Hotspur typically suffering an injury blow for summer signing Giovani Lo Celso, Saturday was an opportunity to smile and get back to winning ways as we hosted Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane.
Smile we did, as Spurs were more like their best and Son Heung-Min made it count in the tenth minute to open the scoring. With a Patrick van Aanholt own goal 21 minutes in, we were comfortable but Sonny helped himself to a brace two minutes later to see us head towards the half time break with a good and deserved 3-0 lead.
Erik Lamela got himself on the scoresheet just before the break to make it 4-0 and it was very much a case of game over.
Palace did have chances of their own but they couldn’t get past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and we weren’t really in any danger.
4-0 was how it finished and it won’t just be the scoreline that delights Spurs fans today.
