Late Kane header gives Tottenham victory at Palace
LONDON: Harry Kane headed a late winner to give Tottenham Hotspur a deserved 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace that lifted them into fourth place in the Premier League on Sunday.
Kane headed home from Christian Eriksen's corner in the 89th minute to make up for two glaring misses earlier in the match at Selhurst Park.
He should have put Tottenham ahead early on when the ball fell to him in the middle of the box after a mistake by Patrick van Aanholt but Wayne Hennessey spread himself well and the striker's shot ballooned over the bar.
The England striker was guilty of a more glaring miss early in the second half when Eriksen passed from the right and Kane, with time and space on the left, shot wide of the far post.
