  • BALE BACK ON THE SCORE SHEET! It’s as simple a goal as he’ll ever score, tapping Kane’s square pass into the corner of an empty net after Lucas was able to poke possession away from Milivojevic on the edge of Palace’s 18-yard box! Spurs have the lead! 1-0!

  • Frustration gets the better of Ayew, who tugs Bale down in midfield to prevent the Real Madrid loanee from venturing forward on a counter-attack. It's a yellow card for the Crystal Palace forward.

  • Lucas goes on a slaloming run through midfield and gets taken down from behind by Cahill right on the edge of the penalty area. It’s a yellow card for the centre-back, who gives Tottenham a real chance from a set-piece.

  • BENTEKE MAKES IT 1-1 OUT OF NOWHERE! Completely against the run of play, Crystal Palace find the equaliser just moments before the end of the first half! Milivojevic is allowed time and space on the left wing, with which he puts a delicious cross towards the penalty spot. In between two defenders, Benteke rises highest and powers his header high into the roof of the net!

  • BALE GETS HIS DOUBLE! 2-1 SPURS! The same combination that paid off the first time works again as Reguilon fires a cross into the far post for Kane, who nods it across the six-yard box. Bale is again waiting, but this time he uses his head - getting in front of Kouyate and beating Guaita high!

  • KANE MAKES IT THREE! TOTTENHAM ARE RAMPANT! It’s a sublime strike from Kane, who receives a pass from Doherty well outside the penalty area near the right corner and uses his right foot to sweep an incredible first-time finish past the goalkeeper! 3-1 to Spurs!

  • Bale's match comes to an end with 20 minutes remaining in the contest. He's been fantastic today, netting twice and causing real havoc on the wing. Lamela is the man to replace him.

  • KANE GETS HIS SECOND GOAL TO ADD TO HIS TWO ASSISTS! Lamela plays a fantastic chipped pass into the penalty area which goes over the head of Ward for Son - who immediately volleys a pass across the face of the six-yard box for Kane. The captain puts his header into the ground awkwardly, but a friendly bounce gets it over the line comfortably! 4-1!
