Tottenham defeated Palace to extend their lead to five points.

After the half, the visitors grabbed control and took advantage of a great stroke of luck when Palace defender Joel Ward diverted James Maddison’s cross into his own net.

Maddison also played a role in the second goal, as his exchange with Brennan Johnson resulted in Son Heung-min scoring his ninth goal of the season.

In stoppage time, Jordan Ayew slammed in a spectacular strike after taking the ball down on his chest for Palace, but there was no equalizer as Tottenham claimed yet another victory under new manager Ange Postecoglou.

Since arriving from Celtic in the summer, the Australian has given his team fresh vitality, and this victory brings Spurs’ record to eight victories and two ties in their first ten games.

Tottenham now has 26 points, five more than Manchester City and Arsenal, who both have a game in hand and can cut the gap over the weekend.

“Every week is a different challenge,” Postecoglou explained to BBC Sport.

“We had to be disciplined, focused, and persistent in our play, which we did.” I thought we were dominant and played some very nice football between the first and second goals, and I still think the lads handled [the conclusion of the match] well.

“We haven’t faced that situation this year, and there was a lot of calm on the team.” There was no hurrying or panicking, which is a good sign.”
