No doubt that the lineup failed today which is due to the coach's decision and the inability of the players to function properly.

Crystal Palace dominated the game even before Spurs collected their red card and the domination continued till the end of the game which shows that Nuno's men had a bad outing today.

Nuno should have also gone with a more defensive approach after the red card to prevent his team from conceding goals today.

2. Delayed Substitution

At half-time, Nuno Espirito Santo should have made some changes since he saw that Crystal Palace was the better team in the first half.

Meanwhile, the coach also failed to subbed out Tanganga quickly after the defender had received his first yellow in the 53rd minute before his second yellow card in the 58th minute which sent him off.

Later did Nuno brought in Ben Davies for Harry Winks but his substitution didn't stop Palace from adding both the second and third goals later.

Congratulations to Palace as they are now on top of the EPL table.
