Tottenham keeps title hopes alive after Crystal Palace 1-0 Win

Christian Eriksen kept Tottenham‘s title hopes alive with a crucial strike to sink Crystal Palace 1-0.

Eriksen rescued Spurs with a long-range drive 12 minutes from time to ensure they remain four points behind leaders Chelsea.

Tottenham had endured a tough few days, losing the FA Cup semifinal to Chelsea on Saturday before Antonio Conte’s side beat Southampton 4-2 to stay in control at the top.

They desperately needed a pick-me-up at Selhurst Park to keep their season alive, but that was never going to be easy against an in-form Palace side who have already beaten Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool this month.

The usually deadly Harry Kane and Dele Alli were kept quiet by a Palace rearguard marshalled superbly by Mamadou Sakho, who missed the victory over parent club Liverpool on Sunday due to the terms of his loan deal.

But when Sakho was forced off injured midway through the second half, Spurs sensed their chance and Eriksen’s eighth goal of the season keeps them in touch at the top with five games to go.
