EPL: Tottenham Open Five-point Gap at the Top After Crystal Palace Win

Tottenham Hotspur have gone five points clear at the top of the Premier League, following a nervy 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on Friday night.

The first half ended goalless, but James Maddison’s shot deflected off Joe Ward to give Ange Postecoglou’s men the lead in the second half.

Spurs went two goals up, after captain Son Heung-Min finished off a fine team move.

Although Jordan Ayew pulled one back in added time, it was merely a consolation for the hosts.

Tottenham now have 26 points, above Arsenal and Manchester City who both have 21 points.

The Gunners welcome Sheffield United on Saturday, while City take on Manchester United on Sunday.
