Tottenham vs Crystal Palace LIVE! Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

Timo Werner's first goal for Tottenham Hotspur sparked a 3-1 comeback victory at home against Crystal Palace to revive their top-four hopes in the Premier League on Saturday.

The German former Chelsea forward, on loan from RB Leipzig, converted from close range in the 77th minute to cancel out Eberechi Eze's superb free kick that had given Palace the lead.

Having struggled for most of the game to create chances, Tottenham were suddenly rejuvenated and they went ahead three minutes later when Cristian Romero headed in.

Captain Son Heung-min completed the job with a typically clinical finish after being through one-on-one.

Victory lifted fifth-placed Tottenham to 50 points from 26 games, two behind Aston Villa.

Postecoglou hails Werner and Johnson as Tottenham leave it late again

18:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

Ange Postecoglou hopes Timo Werner gains confidence after he scored to help Tottenham earn a much-needed 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace.

Spurs were set for a second consecutive defeat when Eberechi Eze curled home a sumptuous free-kick for the visitors just before the hour mark.

Werner had also been guilty of missing a glorious first-half chance but made amends when he tapped in with 77 minutes played after excellent work by Brennan Johnson to spark a late turnaround by the hosts, with Cristian Romero and captain Son Heung-min also scoring.

17:01 , Jonathan Gorrie

A second-half defensive collapse saw Crystal Palace throw away the lead at Tottenham.

Eberech Eze's stunning free-kick looked to have been enough for Oliver Glanser to claim a second successive win in charge but late goals from Timo Werner and Cristian Romero saw Spurs complete a late comeback.

FT: Tottenham 3-1 Crystal Palace

16:58 , Jonathan Gorrie

Not always convincing but Spurs get the job done. Palace, however, are left to rue a defensive collapse.

Now that's how you finish a one-on-one! Son characteristically makes no mistake and Spurs' comeback is complete. Great character from Ange Postecoglou's side, who deserve a win on the balance of play since half-time.

What a turnaround for Spurs. This feels as lot like the Brighton game on February 10, when Spurs came from 1-0 down to win 2-1. These kind of second-half comebacks aren't sustainable but they show the character and quality of Postecoglou's side.

A nightmare few seconds for Andersen, who slices a clearance away before being skinned by Johnson, who breaks into the box and plays the ball across for Werner, who taps in.

Son shows quick feet to create space for a shot but drags it just wide.

It's very flat inside the stadium now, with Spurs fans sensing a tense final 20 minutes of their side attempting to break down a stubborn and defensive Palace team. Brennan Johnson is on but there aren't many other game-changers in reserve for Postecoglou, aside from perhaps Giovani Lo Celso.

Werner crosses in for Son at the near post and his miss-hit finds it way to Johnson but he can’t sort his feet out in time and shoots over.

62 mins: Spurs make a change. Johnson for Bentancur.

16:22 , Jonathan Gorrie

Lovely hit from Eze and now Spurs are in a sticky spot. They have been better since half-time but Palace will have even less incentive to push forward and leave space at the back with a lead to protect.

Tottenham 0-1 Crystal Palace | Eberechi Eze '58

It’s a brilliant free-kick from Eze, curling it beyond Vicario from just outside the box and into the top right hand corner.

57 mins: Bentancur goes into the book for a foul on Eze just outside the box. A dangerous spot for a free-kick...

47 mins: Good play from Werner, who does well to stand up Munoz and play a delicious cross over to Kulusevski, though Palace clear.

Flat half. Werner's 1v1 with Johnstone the only big chance of note for either side. Spurs' front three all quiet and struggling to make inroads against a packed Palace defence.

42 mins: Feels like both teams needs half-time. It’s not been brilliant.

Dan Kilpatrick at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

15:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

There's no space to be found in the third final when Spurs have the ball, with Palace defending in a robust 5-2-3 formation. Spurs' best chance since Werner's miss was when Bissouma managed to play through the press and they surged forward but Emerson's cross was overhit. At the other end, there's a good battle developing between van de Ven and Mateta.

Tottenham 0-0 Crystal Palace

15:36 , Jonathan Gorrie

32 mins: A pretty sloppy opening half an hour or so. Spurs seeing a lot of the ball but their final pass is lacking, while Palace don’t appear to have much conviction going forward.

28 mins: Big save! Vicario saves well from Ayew, though he may have been offside anyway.

Still, the Spurs keeper has done well when called upon.

25 mins: A fairly flat atmosphere in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium now.

Dan Kilpatrick at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

15:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

That really felt like classic Timo Werner: a great run and smart first touch but he never looked convincing as he bore down on Johnstone's goal and his attempt to round the goalkeeper looked telegraphed. Johnstone read it well and was able to save.

Tottenham 0-0 Crystal Palace

15:23 , Jonathan Gorrie

20 mins: Brave goalkeeping!

Lerma’s shot from just outside the box is deflected into Munoz’s path but Vicario rushes out to stop him.

17 mins: He. Had, To. Score.

Bentancur wins the ball back in midfield and plays a lovely ball over to Werner, who has a free run at goal from inside the Palace half.

The German opts to try and round Johnstone, who does very well to stop it but should never have been allowed to.

Tottenham 0-0 Crystal Palace

15:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

16 mins: Pretty frustrating for Spurs thus far. Over 80% of possession but little to show for it.

15:13 , Jonathan Gorrie

Micky van de Ven is contnuing but he has not looked comfortable since a robust challenge on Mateta a few minutes ago. Both Davies and Dragusin have been sent to warm up. It would be a blow for Spurs to lose the influential Dutchman to another injury.
