Mourinho defends 'best goalkeeper in the Premier League' after Palace hold Spurs

Guaita was called into action in the dying embers however, making huge saves from a Kane header and Eric Dier free-kick.

Goalkeeper Vicente Guaita was proving crucial for the home side in the 1-1 draw in the first half with some class saves, he was eventually beaten by Harry Kane, knocking in goal number 15 of the season as he swerved in and hit a shot from 25 yards out.

Where and when is the Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur, Premier League match being played?

Some had criticised the long-serving Spurs captain after Sunday's all-London clash after he was unsighted by a late Eberechi Eze free-kick that bounced off him before being turned home from close range by Jeffrey Schlupp.

The visitors were almost punished just before half-time when Eberechi Eze's curling effort came back off the post.

In Serie A, Cristiano Ronaldo converted two late penalties on his 100th appearance for Juventus in all competitions as the Serie A titleholders ground out a 3-1 win away to a dogged Genoa side.

"At half-time I told the players exactly the opposite that we did in the second half, but if they didn't it was because they couldn't, they were not able to do it".

Ashanti , who coughed a couple of times throughout her address, added that she was "super-bummed" by the turn in events. It has previously featured duels between Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, Ludacris and Nelly, as well as Brandy and Monica .

Asked if Lloris was at fault for Schlupp's goal, he said: "My goalkeeper is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, so I would never be critical of the best goalkeeper in the Premier League, period".

Only Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton, with 13, have combined for more goals in one season than Kane and Son.

It ended honours even at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon as we stretched our Premier League unbeaten run to 11 games in an entertaining 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

Guaita showed a combination of agility and bravery to frustrate the leaders and his acrobatic stop to somehow keep out Dier's free-kick right at the end was out of the top drawer.

- Spurs have only lost one of the 21 Premier League games in which they've opened the scoring under Mourinho (W15 D5), with that lone defeat coming against Wolves back in March.

Son has already scored 10 goals in 11 games in the Premier League this season, while the South Korea worldwide has combined with Kane for 11 of their 23 goals this term.
