Live Reporting

All times stated are UK

  1. Bye for now

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    That's all from me.

    Why not have a read of our developing match report here.

    See you all next time!

  2. FULL-TIME

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    All over in north London.

    It's been all over for quite a while, in truth.

  3. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    That's a cynical challenge from Luka Milivojevic on Erik Lamela.

    Yellow card. The Palace captain can have no complaints.

  4. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Joel Ward is cautioned for barging into Lucas Moura.

    Christian Eriksen whips the resulting free-kick into Vicente Guaita's arms.

  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Both sides make their final change.

    Lucas Moura replaces Harry Kane, while Victor Camarasa comes on for Andros Townsend.

  6. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Spurs are heading back into the top four.

    Whatever Mauricio Pochettino told his players in that hour-long meeting earlier this week, it seems to have done the trick.

  7. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Ten minutes of normal time remaining in north London.

    Time for another goal?

  8. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Christian Benteke finds space on the edge of the area but his shot is deflected into the arms of Hugo Lloris.

    He's not exactly brimming with confidence, is he?

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    One change for either side.

    Ben Davies replaces Danny Rose for Spurs, while Cheikhou Kouyate comes off for James McCarthy.

  10. Post update

    Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Christian Benteke replaces Jordan Ayew in Palace's first change of the match.

    They might have to make another one shortly - Cheikhou Kouyate has gone down clutching the back of his thigh.

  11. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    More crisp football from Spurs as Son attempts to prod a volley towards goal, but he fails to make proper contact with the ball.

    Moments later, Serge Aurier's goal-bound effort is blocked by the retreating Patrick van Aanholt.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Harry Winks is given a warm ovation by the Spurs faithful as he makes way for Spurs' record signing Tanguy Ndombele.

  13. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Son Heung-min capitalises on more defensive uncertainty in the Palace half before trying to lob Vicente Guaita from a tight angle, but he can only find the side-netting.

  14. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Erik Lamela is a fraction away from getting on the end of Christian Eriksen's clever pass.

    The faintest of touches could have taken it past Vicente Guaita.

  15. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Jordan Ayew squares up to Harry Winks and Craig Pawson brandishes another yellow card.

    Ayew is the first Palace player to be cautioned this afternoon.

  16. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Yet another booking for the hosts as Christian Eriksen has his name taken.

    The yellow cards are suddenly mounting up for Spurs.

  17. Post update

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Spurs, unsurprisingly perhaps, have taken their foot off the gas a little in the last few moments.

    This is nothing more than a damage limitation exercise for Palace.

  18. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Son Heung-min wants his hat-trick.

    The South Korean finds room for a shot deep inside the penalty area but fails to hit the target.

  19. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Jan Vertonghen becomes the third player to have his name taken by Craig Pawson after bringing down Jordan Ayew.

    Palace were appealing for a penalty moments earlier for a foul on Ayew but Pawson was having none of it.

    Jan Vertonghen
  20. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 4-0 Crystal Palace

    Another yellow card for Spurs, this time for Danny Rose following a robust challenge on Wilfried Zaha.

    The resulting free-kick is swung into the danger zone and Gary Cahill's header is kept out by Hugo Lloris.

    Patrick van Aanholt then does well to stop a Spurs counterattack dead in its tracks.
