Schlupp strikes late to deny Spurs all 3 points in enthralling London Derby

1 min read

Jeffrey Schlupp pounced late in the day in front of 2,000 fans at Selhurst Park to earn Crystal Palace a 1-1 draw with table-toppers Tottenham on Sunday.

Moments after making a brilliant save to deny Tanguy Ndombele, Vicente Guaita was beaten by a swerving Harry Kane strike from fully 25 yards as the Spurs skipper gave his side the lead in the 23rd minute with his 15th goal of the season.

After the break, Palace pressed and pressed for a leveller but were met by some rigid Spurs defending. However, undeterred, Schupp reacted first to the loose ball to earn Palace an equaliser nine minutes from time to send the populated Holmesdale Road stand into raptures.

The draw stretches Spurs’ unbeaten run to 11 in the Premier League since the opening day, but victory for Liverpool later on Sunday will see Spurs drop to second after relinquishing the opportunity for three further points.
