Tottenham in comeback win over Crystal Palace

Timo Werner praised the support of his team-mates after his first Tottenham goal sparked his side’s comeback win over Crystal Palace. Werner, who was making his sixth appearance since joining on loan from RB Leipzig in January, scored Spurs’ equaliser as the hosts scored three times in the final 13 minutes to win and boost their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League. Werner had failed to convert a when played clean through in a forgettable first half and Spurs’ woes deepened when Eberechi Eze opened the scoring with a 59th minute free-kick.

Werner tapped in Brennan Johnson’s cross in the 77th minute, after which Cristian Romero headed in James Maddison’s cross and captain Son Heung-min swept home to steal three points to inflict a first loss on Palace manager Oliver Glasner.

The victory moved Tottenham within two points of fourth-placed Aston Villa, although Unai Emery’s side regained their five-point cushion with a dramatic 3-2 win at Luton later on Saturday.
