And that's your lot at Wembley! Spurs just about win this one. Zaha in particular will have nightmares after missing that open goal, but it's Son who is the hero for Spurs!
Special mention to Gazzaniga too for some vital saves...
- OffDanny RoseTottenham Hotspur
- OnBen DaviesTottenham Hotspur
Time-wasting sub as Davies comes on for Rose.
Spurs doing their best to run down the clock. And there will be three minutes added on.
Sissoko's cross is deflected over the bar for a Spurs corner. Eriksen takes this time as he goes over to cross one in...
OVER! Sanchez meets it but his header bounces wide of the mark.
Gazzaniga minutes away from a clean sheet for Spurs, and he rushes out to meet a long ball with Sako breathing down his neck.
Another ball in behind for Son but he looks short of pace as Sakho comes back to make the interception.
CLOSE! Oh Son... the Korean is through on goal, he gives Speroni the eyes and goes for the near post, but fires wide of the mark.
Dann meets the corner but he heads harmlessly over.
Zaha shrugs off Rose who does his best to tug him down, and the Palace man goes on to win a corner...
- OffHarry KaneTottenham Hotspur
- OnFernando LlorenteTottenham Hotspur
An uneventful afternoon for Kane, and Llorente comes on to replace the captain for the day.
- OffJoel WardCrystal Palace
- OnBakary SakoCrystal Palace
'KEEPERS!' is the cry, and Gazzaniga just about gets a punch onto the ball when surrounded. And Spurs clear.
Off goes Ward and on comes Sako.
Game is just opening up slightly as Palace go chasing after a result, and the Eagles have a corner...
Aurier does well to intercept ahead of Loftus-Cheek and it's another Palace corner...
WiDE! Cabaye from a long way out tries his luck, but the attempt trickles wide of the far post with Gazzaniga watching it all the way.
Basement club Palace have just 20 minutes to respond. When you haven't scored an away league goal all season, the last thing you need is for Zaha to miss chances like the one he had before Spurs' opener. When it's not going your way...
GO ON MY SON
Eriksen plays it short to Son, but the cross is eventually cleared.
Palace just look a bit shell-shocked after that opener and Spurs would do well to put this game to bed while they have the chance. The hosts on top now and Rose earns them a corner...
Well, well, well. It's a splendid strike from Son and it's harsh on Palace, but that's what happens when you don't put your chances away against the big teams.
- GoalHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
Son scores for Spurs!
Palace are made to pay for their earlier missed chances. A cross ricochets kindly to Son on the edge of the area, and he takes a touch before curling one into the bottom corner.
Penny for Zaha's thoughts now...
Rose slides in a wicked ball but there is no Spurs player to meet it in the six-yard box. The left-back is unhappy, but it would have been tough for Aurier to meet that at the back post.
Can hear the Palace fans roar as their team are just on top in the past few minutes...
SAVE! From a corner, Gazzaniga makes an instinctive save to deny Milivojevic from point-blank range. Spurs lucky to be at 0-0 still!
HUGE CHANCE! Oh dear, Zaha should have put Palace ahead!
Another loose ball from Aurier finds Townsend, who sends Zaha on his way. Gazzaniga is hesitant to come out, but when he finally does, Zaha beats him to it, goes around him but then fires wide of the open goal. From an angle, but he has to do better.
- Yellow cardJeffrey SchluppCrystal Palace
Schlupp goes in the book for a foul out wide. Eriksen whips in a dangerous ball but Ward clears.
Milivojevic's ball into the box almost picks out Sakho, who for some unknown reason is Palace's furthest forward player... but Aurier clears for a corner, which Gazzaniga jumps to collect.
Another Spurs corner, another Eriksen cross, another Loftus-Cheek header away. Palace in the right place at the right time in defence. But the Spurs fans are responding to this shift in gear from their players.
Rose fizzes in a dangerous cross and Milivojevic's clearance could have gone anywhere, but thankfully for him it goes over the bar. Again Palace deal with the corner and Spurs must build from the back once more.
Spurs just upping the ante and SIssoko earns them a corner... Loftus-Cheek it is who heads away.
Wonder if that will be a wake-up call for Spurs, they certainly need one. For all of their possession, ti's Palace who have had the two best chances of the game so far.
GOOD SAVE! Very loose ball from Aurier finds Townsend, who bursts down the other end and is one-on-one with Dier before shooting low across goal, but Gazzaniga does well to parry it wide for a corner, which comes to nothing as Zaha fires well over...
Brighter start to the half from Spurs and they have an early corner, but Eriksen's cross is headed away...
- 2nd Half
And we're back underway at Wembley, those of you who are still awake and have decided against a Sunday afternoon snooze, let's hope for a better half this time around!
- OffHarry WinksTottenham Hotspur
- OnMousa DembéléTottenham Hotspur
Half-time sub for Spurs with Winks off and Dembele coming on. Winks offered little in truth. Perhaps tired from all those Barcelona links.
- End of 1st Half
Late chance for Spurs to whip one in. Eriksen it is with the ball in but it's headed away, and that's your lot for the first half.
Very poor opening 45. Things, can only get better. (Can only get better. Can only get. Can only get.)
- Yellow cardAndros TownsendCrystal Palace
Townsend pulls back Sissoko cynically and it's a first yellow of the day for the Palace winger.
Man of the moment Winks tries his luck from 25 yards out but his attempt trickles wide. That is what Spurs have been reduced to this half.
TWO minutes will be added on...
Vertonghen has few options so goes for it from 30 yards out, his attempt deflects off Dann and for a second you think it's going to catch out Speroni, but the sting was taken off the shot and the Palace keeper changes direction to collect it.
Eriksen with the cross and again it's Dann who clears. He has been brilliant for Palace so far.
If only there was more to report... but really, there isn't. Just a few more replays of that Dann chance for Palace. The Eagles coming close to their first away goal in the league this season...
GREAT SAVE! Gazzaniga to the rescue for Spurs. Dann rises highest from a corner and his header is destined for the bottom corner, but the Spurs keeper parries it and the hosts just about clear.
OVER! Rose gets round the back of the defence, his cross is shanked by Sakho and Kane wants to volley it but is forced to head it over the bar instead.
CHANCE! Aurier's deep cross is met by Rose at the back post, but the left-back proves he's a left-back by heading well wide of the mark.
Rose with a change of pace and Spurs have a corner. It's with Son inside the box but he cannot pick out a man in white, as Dann clears again for Palace.
Dier putting in a real shift for Spurs at the back so far. He slides in on Schlupp to stop the Palace man in his tracks.
Aurier given the time to venture forward down the right without being close down, but his cross is a poor one and Palace clear their lines.
Slight concern for Spurs (and England) as Kane goes down under a challenge from Fosu-Mensah. He was hit on the ankle but gets some spray to his knee after seemingly twisting in slightly, but he jogs back onto the field of play. Stand down.
The stats will tell you it's 79% possession for Spurs, but they've had few chances to show for it so far. Palace looking solid at the back so far. Emphasis on so far... you imagine the chances will come for the hosts.
Slight stoppage in play with WInks down in the sunny patch of turf. Doesn't look like much but he's just receiving treatment.
Now it's Dier's turn down the other end to put in a tremendous tackle. Zaha is bearing down on goal and the Tottenham man slides in to make a vital interception.
CLOSE! Great interception from Dann as Rose's low cross comes in, Kane was there ready to pounce but it's top positioning from the Palace defender.
Moments later, a shot-to-nothing from Eriksen trickles wide.
Few chances of note in the past few minutes. Spurs just starting to control the game, but apart from that Kane shot from distance, they've created little.
All Kane needs is half a sight of goal and he will shoot, we all know that. He volleys from about 30 yards out but it bounces towards Speroni.
Spurs just growing into this game now after a strong start from Palace. Eriksen tries to play in Son but Dann intercepts.
CLOSE! It's a delightful ball in from Zaha and both Spurs 'keeper Gazzaniga and Sakho miss the ball, but the Palace defender is down after being clattered. No real cries for a penalty, but a shaky start from the Spurs No 3 goalkeeper.
Decent start from the visitors. They have an early free-kick and chance to cross one into the box, but Spurs clear.
- 1st Half
Right then, let the fun commence. Palace get us underway.
TEAMS ARE OUT
Must surely be one of the earliest kick-offs Wembley has seen. Before we get underway, the Last Post plays out ahead of Remembrance Day on Nov 11.
HOPE FOR PALACE
Not long left until kick-off at Wembley. The first installment of a very superb Sunday. We'll have live updates of every Premier League game this afternoon. What a day, eh.
TIME TO DIG DEEP
UP AGAINST IT
Palace have lost each of their last four games against Spurs in the league, while they have not scored in their last four league matches away to their London rivals. Can they upset the odds at Wembley?
TWO PALACE CHANGES
There are two changes to the side that drew with West Ham in dramatic circumstances last week.
Mamadou Sakho and Timothy Fosu-Mensah come into the starting XI, with James Tomkins dropping to the bench and Patrick van Aanholt missing out.
ALLI OUT FOR ENGLAND
And England have just confirmed that Dele Alli will not feature for the upcoming friendlies with Brazil and Germany due to that hamstring injury.
So with both Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm out injured for Spurs, Paulo Gazzaniga starts for the hosts. Dele Alli’s hamstring problem rules him out too, while Toby Alderweireld does not feature either. Moussa Sissoko gets the chance to strut his stuff at Wembley.
Spurs XI: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Kane. Subs: Whiteman, Trippier, Foyth, Davies, Nkoudou, Dembele, Llorente.
Palace XI: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Sakho, Schlupp, Fosu-Mensah, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Loftus-Cheek, Townsend, Zaha. Subs: Hennessey, Tomkins, Souare, Riedewald, McArthur, Sako, Puncheon.
And welcome to what promises to be a stupendous Sunday in the Premier League. We kick things off with Tottenham entertaining London rivals Crystal Palace at Wembley. Both sides need results for very different reasons, and following Spurs’ magnificent win over Real Madrid in midweek, it will be interesting to see if they can replicate that performance against lowly Palace from midday.
