Christian Eriksen missed a glorious chance to put Tottenham Hotspur in front against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The Dane has been in good scoring form this season, with seven goals from 22 appearances in all competitions.
However, Eriksen seems to have left his shooting boots at home today after producing this shocker. The ball came back to the midfielder square in front of goal, right on the six-yard line, and all Eriksen could do was shank it wide.
Tottenham will be confident of extending their seven-match unbeaten run against Palace but will need to be more accurate then this.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, know they’re up against playing a Spurs side whose last outing in the Barclays Premier League was the 5-3 defeat of Chelsea at White Hart Lane. Alan Pardew is not helped by the fact that both Mile Jedinak and Yannick Bolasie are away on international duty.
