Tottenham Hotspur drew 1-1 with Harry Kane’s opener in the 71st minute at Jeffrey Slap’s equalizer at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The sports striker left the visitors helpless in front of the visitors 23 yards after a 30-yard fine shot by Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guetta, but the shot-stopper was to deny Jose Mourinho’s men with an incredible save several times.
Spaniard placed Tottenham in the Gulf with three great stops in the first 20 minutes of the clash for refusing to stop Tangio Nodambel, Sergio Reguillon and Kane from scoring, but he could not stop the Spurs star from being found behind the net. Caught trying to wander a long range.
Guetta could have arguably done better, but Kane’s effort was too little for him and it fascinated BBC Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker, the former Tottenham striker responded on Twitter:
Even @ HiccupShoot in the middle and go straight to the defender. That’s the real talent.

Unfortunately, Kane’s ninth Premier League goal in 2020-21 was enough to qualify Tottenham to make a great change in the second half after points.
However, a 1-1 draw with Fulham also helped Liverpool maintain their lead at the top of the table.
Both teams clashed as joint-league leaders at Anfield on Wednesday and will be looking to bounce back from the disappointing results over the weekend.
