Tottenham beat Crystal Palace 1-0 to close the gap to Chelsea again to four points, leaving Harry Kane and Mauricio Pochettino thrilled with what both of them called an ‘unbelievable’ win.
It is unbelievable. This is a tough place to come and we had to keep fighting. We knew our time would come and what a strike by Christian Eriksen
Kane told Sky Sports right after the game, referring to Eriksen’s strike 12 minutes from time that led to the game’s only goal.
We knew we had to bounce back after the weekend and what a performance by everyone. We knew we had to dig deep and get a goal. It was a perfect win in the end
the Tottenham striker added, referring this time to his team’s FA Cup semifinal loss to Chelsea on Saturday.
It was unbelievable, a very good performance. It was difficult in the first half for us to move the ball and find the space, but we changed the shape at half-time and it was more fluid. We started to find the space and started to push Palace deeper and deeper
Pochettino said from his side.
Tottenham remain four points below leaders Chelsea, but they have already broken a record, since the 74 points they have collected so far this season, are more than ever before in a single Premier League campaign.
