Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace Premier League Match Result March 2024

Timo Werner's debut goal for Tottenham Hotspur ignited a thrilling 3-1 comeback victory against Crystal Palace at home, rekindling their aspirations for a top-four finish in the Premier League on Saturday.

The former Chelsea striker, currently on loan from RB Leipzig, broke the deadlock in the 77th minute with a close-range finish, nullifying Eberechi Eze's exceptional free-kick that had initially put Palace in the lead.

Struggling to create opportunities for most of the game, Tottenham experienced a sudden resurgence. Just three minutes after Werner's goal, Cristian Romero's header propelled them into the lead.

Captain Son Heung-Min sealed the victory with his trademark clinical finish after a one-on-one opportunity. The win propelled Tottenham to fifth place in the standings with 50 points from 26 matches, trailing Aston Villa by a mere two points.

Werner's last goal in English football came two years ago, and his loan move to Tottenham aimed to reignite his scoring prowess.

Although Tottenham dominated possession in the first half, they lacked the creativity to penetrate Palace's resilient defense. Werner had a close opportunity but was thwarted by Palace goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

The second half commenced with increased intensity, highlighted by Son striking the post from Dejan Kulusevski's cutback. However, it was Palace who broke the deadlock in the 59th minute with Eze's brilliant free-kick.

Tottenham desperately needed a spark, which came in the form of substitute Brennan Johnson. His perseverance down the right flank led to Werner's equalizer.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou praised Werner's performance, highlighting his determination and contribution to the team's attacking play.

Romero extended Tottenham's lead with a well-directed header from James Maddison's pass, effectively sealing the victory as Palace struggled to mount a response. Son further cemented the win with his 13th league goal of the season, capitalizing on Palace's deflated spirit.
