Victor Wanyama scored a late header to give Tottenham’s season lift-off as Mauricio Pochettino’s men beat Crystal Palace for their first victory of the campaign.
Spurs looked destined for a frustrating afternoon at White Hart Lane as summer signing Vincent Janssen and Harry Kane were both thwarted by a resolute Palace back line.
However Wanyama, bought from Southampton in June, capped his home debut with an 83rd-minute winner, heading in from close range to snatch a dramatic 1-0 win.
