Crystal Palace 3 Tottenham 0: Super-sub Odsonne Edouard scores twice on dream debut


Edouard scored the fastest goal by a Premier League substitute, scoring just 28 seconds after being introduced.

The home side had taken the lead through the impressive Wilfried Zaha,.

Zaha cooly slotted home from the penalty spot after Ben Davies had handled Conor Gallagher’s attempted cross.

Former Arsenal midfielder Vieira had seen his side take just one point from their opening three Premier League games, but a debut double for new signing Edouard in the final 10 minutes secured a deserved three points.

Vieira was part of the Gunners team that dominated north London for the best part of a decade and he will have enjoyed ending Spurs’ 100 per cent start to the season with a dominant display.

Edouard’s second in stoppage time concluded a disastrous afternoon for Spurs.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were under-strength and off the pace in south London and there was no coming back after Japhet Tanganga was sent off just before the hour after picking up two yellow cards in the space of five minutes.

Spurs registered their first shot on goal shortly after the second half began as Lucas Moura tested Vicente Guaita’s handling from distance before a real flashpoint at the other end.

With Palace on a quick break, Tanganga cynically wiped out Zaha and the pair immediately clashed, sparking a huge melee.

They were both booked, with Zaha perhaps lucky to escape a red card after appearing to grab his opponent by the face.

Instead it was Tanganga who walked five minutes later after lunging tackle on Jordan Ayew earned him a second yellow card.
