Moments before the first half came to a close, Harry Kane found the back of the net, giving Tottenham the lead against Crystal Palace with a score of 1-0.
Ryan Mason’s influence on the team has been apparent, as Tottenham have looked a much improved in their last two games. They came back from 2 goals down to draw 2-2 against Manchester United and once again put in an incredible fight to come back from 3 goals down to draw 3-3 against Liverpool. They unfortunately lost to the Reds right at the end due to a mistake at the back.
But they have taken the lead against Crystal Palace.
Pedro Porro received the ball from Kane on the right flank and swiftly delivered a cross into the box. The Tottenham skipper leaped high to connect with the ball and sent it past Johnstone with a powerful header, putting Tottenham in the lead at halftime.
The goal was his 209th which has seen him surpass Wayne Rooney to become the second highest goal-scorer in the Premier League history.

Another landmark goal from Harry Kane! ?
