Final Thoughts

Tottenham secured their third win in a row after a comfortable win over Palace. The North London team are now just two points behind the top four. 

Palace are eight points above safety despite this evenings loss. They had their fair share of chances but the Tottenham strikers couldn't be held back. 

Tottenham need to build on the last three performances as they look to get further into the top four before the end of the season.
