Palace pair Bolasie and Zaha bamboozle Spurs with mad skillz

They were unable to break the deadlock, however, as it finished 0-0 at White Hart Lane.

TOTTENHAM STRUGGLED to deal with Crystal Palace widemen Yannick Bolasie and Wilfred Zaha at White Hart Lane today.

The game ended 0-0 but Eagles pair caused havoc on the wings throughout. First, Bolasie got the better of Christian Eriksen with this piece of brilliance.

Spurs were looking to win back-to-back home games in the Premier League for the first time this season, but failed to break down a resolute Palace backline.

While Neil Warnock’s side had the better of the first half in north London, largely inspired by lively wingers Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha, Palace had their defensive ranks to thank after the break.

The visitors did well to keep the likes Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado quiet in the face of almost constant Spurs possession as Warnock’s men bounced back from their 1-0 defeat at fellow strugglers Aston Villa on Tuesday.

The Spaniard in particular spurned his fair share of chances, displaying a lack of sharpness despite scoring his first league goal since March against Everton last weekend.

Both sides had chances late on – substitute Jason Puncheon almost giving Palace their first away league win since September when he rattled the crossbar – as sections of the home support voiced their discontent at the goalless draw.
