However, a run of five straight league wins on the road means Spurs move level with Chelsea and Liverpool and four points clear of local rivals Arsenal, all of whom are in action on Sunday.

That run of form is simply not good enough, leaving the South London outfit 14th in the table and just two points above the dropzone, and an EFL Cup exit at the hands of second-tier side Middlesbrough last Wednesday did not help matters.

Kane and Spurs jumped back into the top four with a win over Wolves last week and will be looking to consolidate that place ahead of the global break as they take on Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Highlights from Tottenham's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Spurs continue their impressive start.

Kane has scored eight goals in 11 games since his slow start, and while that would come as a blessing to many managers, Pochettino believes Kane's obsession with scoring actually hinders the England star's overall play when he isn't finding the net regularly.

Some of the club's more unheralded players have really impressed and if Pochettino can get the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane back to their best, the rest of the top six need to watch out.


Foyth did not make the same mistake, however, as they centre-back nodded in after Kane's initial header had been blocked 24th minutes from time.

Lloris jumped on Townsend's 84th-minute volley from Schlupp's set up, and then stayed big to block from Sorloth, who should have opened his Premier League account when Milivojevic's deflected shot rolled perfectly into his path.

"Of course, now every time I decide to pick my starting XI I have a name I feel comfortable to play", he added.

66' - GOAL! Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham (Foyth).

He reacted first as Palace failed to clear a corner and headed home his first-ever goal in English football. They've won just two matches, one for each bank of four - and both of those were away, which is a surprise for a team with arguably the best home support in the league.It's been a bit of a unusual season for Spurs, too.

Only in the 2011/12 season have Tottenham had more Premier League points after 12 games.

Palace have struggled this season because they can not score goals consistently.
