Tottenham was rigidly stuck as second best against Crystal Palace, despite starting the new season top of the league. As they limped to a 2-0 defeat to Patrick Vieira’s side, Tottenham lost their first 2021-22 Premier League football match.
Tottenham Lost Their First 2021-22 Premier League Football Match
The Lilywhites never really stood a real chance in this game, and this may because of their schedule (football today).
Spurs failed to make a single shot in the first half and only made one in the second half.
Initially, Wilfried Zaha’s penalty strike put the home side ahead, before Odsonne Edouard came on and added a second goal.
This was his first touch for the club and he scored with ten minutes remaining.
Then, there was still time for Edouard to add a second goal to his Palace debut.
He fired the ball past Lloris in stoppage time to add a well-deserved gloss to the result.
