KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Palace face Manchester United after the worldwide football break before their fixtures become kinder, and Van Aanholt told the club's official website: "We played well, we played strongly but we didn't get any points".

Five matches without a win at Selhurst Park is the Eagles' longest run at the start of a season since 1997-98, when going 15 games without picking up three points, and things do not get any easier this weekend with the visit of fourth-placed Tottenham.

But the young Argentinean defender reacted quickest to head in from close range after Palace failed to clear a Tottenham corner after 66 minutes.

Ironically, a set piece proved to be the source of Tottenham's goal as Kane stooped to beat Martin Kelly, a recent replacement for the injured Tomkins, to the initial header, which hit Milivojevic and looped up invitingly for Foyth to nod home from six yards out.

The young centre-back had received criticism for a hard Premier League debut in last week's 3-2 win over Wolves, but Pochettino refused to drop Foyth and he subsequently secured the spoils for Spurs in a poor match at sodden Selhurst Park.

"He is a killer, an assassin, a killer", the Argentinian said.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino believes Harry Kane would be even more prolific if he was not so obsessed with scoring.

"I was a centre-back and you're involved in these situations The trust from us is massive and from his team-mates".

"There is no doubt his potential and quality will be very helpful for the club".

Kane's burning desire for goals was highlighted last season when he was ridiculed for his attempts to claim a goal at Stoke - one which was eventually awarded to him by the Premier League. "I have no doubt he only needs time and games to improve and show his real quality".

While the north London club's new home is nearing completion after many delays, it seems Spurs are not prepared to take any chances on any unexpected setbacks.

"You could cut your work short by quoting everything I said against Arsenal and Chelsea. But that is not going to stop people countering with the fact we lost and haven't scored". I know that's not true, anyone who watched the game will also know that's not true.
