Crazybola.com – Two English players were responsible for Tottenham Hotspur’s first defeat in the Premier League at Crystal Palace on Saturday night (11/9), after recording three wins in a row.
Ben Davies holding the ball in the box was the cause of the penalty in the 76th minute which was successfully completed by Wilfried Zaha, but much earlier in the 58th minute another Englishman, Japhet Tanganga was gaping at him when he was shown a red card for his second serious foul and forced him to leave. field.
A yellow card incident occurred in the 53rd minute when Tanganga blocked Zaha’s attack by pushing him to the ground and the Crystal Palace player quickly got up and vented his emotions by banging his chest on Tanganga. Both received yellow cards from referee Jonathan Moss.

It was the 22-year-old Hackney-born England’s first yellow card before his second yellow card five minutes later. Ben Davies’ lack of numbers and handball led to Tottenham’s 3-0 loss at London’s Selhurst Park for the first time since January 2019.
Zaha’s first goal from the penalty spot in the 75th minute was followed by a second goal from new summer signing Odsonne Edouard nine minutes later. As we waited for the game to end, the third goal came from Edouard in the third minute of injury time.
In their last five head-to-heads across all competitions, the Spurs have won three of five occasions with the other two ending in a draw. This 3-0 defeat was Nuno Espirito Santo’s first failure to reach three points after his squad won their first three matches by the same scoreline, 1-0, including over reigning champions Manchester City on matchday one.
