We really need to win this. A draw would be like a loss. The top teams are not dropping points this year.

I would bring on Eriksen for Wanyama.

Sissy MOM 1st half.

Most confident I've seen him yet.

Even trying to organise players around him.

Love seeing him so on top of it.

This is the standard he builds from now.

Need to find a goal somewhere. Keep it tight at the back and try create a clear chance. It was only when dele dropped deeper that we started to get the ball forward into the areas that kane lamela and moura want it.
Feel as though this is a game for winks or eriksen as the game goes on. The space will surely open up.

Overall we miss that player to help with the transition. Too much emphasis on passing around the back then lumping it although we were much better int he last 10 or so minutes of that half.

Well, at half time the good news is that we've been playing some positive, incisive and creative football. The bad news is but not today. Hope it picks up for @yankspurs; that's a long way to come to see this show.

I think I have unrealistic expectations of the team. I think we've been average tbh and palace look way more threatening going forward. Our crossing has been dogshit at times especially at corners. Passing sloppy. Foyth clearly having a mare. Kane not turning up bar one shot. I've seen us playing good football before and today isn't it. Not yet anyway.

Just going through the motions really so far. Yeah there isn't a lot of space to operate in, but it's just too safe and in second gear. We await the stepping on the gas..........

Unfortunately is the usual pattern against palace. They always seem to contain us very well, credit to Roy.

Gonna be 1 goal in it again.

The players should talk to each other more during the game. There’s been at least two occasions when two of our players were going for the same ball during our attacks.

Looks like two bottom half teams fighting out a boring draw.
We have so little quality in the final third. Nice passing just inside our half and theirs but then back to our keeper and possession given away cheaply with a lump forward.
Why Dele is playing left back so much of the time is beyond me. He should be playing off of Kane just as he did when he had his best season for us. - this also makes the currently ineffective open play Kane more effective.
