3 talking points as Tottenham Hotspur share the spoils with Crystal Palace

Tottenham Hotspur drew for the fourth time in the Premier League this season, but remain unbeaten in 11 straight matches.

Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace played to a 1-1 draw at the Selhurst Park on Saturday evening. The Lilywhites performed well and should have won, but thanks to the heroics put out by Vicente Guaita in the south London side’s goal, most of the visiting side’s chances were thwarted including a magnificent Eric Dier attempt at the death.

Harry Kane provided Spurs with the go-ahead goal, thanks to a long-range effort in the first half. The Englishman was once again assisted by Heung-min Son as the duo are beginning to show that maintaining consistency is no big deal for them. Jeffrey Schlupp though scored some minutes before full-time in a result that is arguably harsh of the league leaders.

Here is a look at the three talking points from the stalemate.

Tottenham Hotspur have scored 24 league goals this season and 19 of them have been scored by Harry Kane or Heung-min Son. The forwards are at their lethal best in recent months and there is no reason why both of them cannot have record-breaking seasons on an individual basis thanks to congruous and explosive starts, per head too.

However, from a team perspective, there is little doubt that if one or both of them are absent, it is going to be a completely different situation. The likes of Steven Bergwijn and Tanguy Ndombele, who had respectable scoring stats in their previous clubs have to step up if the north Londoners are to stay in contention for more than one piece of silverware.
