Pochettino hoping for positive news on injured Trippier

Pochettino hoping for positive news on injured Trippier

Sol Bamba scored the victor as Cardiff beat 10-man Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1, lifting them to third-bottom above Huddersfield, who drew 1-1 with West Ham.

Palace, on the other hand, were without the services of talisman Wilfried Zaha, who missed out through injury.

In the first half of the match, Leicester's players had their former owner's name embroidered on their shirts, before they swapped to shirts with an embroidered poppy in commemoration of Remembrance Sunday in the second half.

If Palace are going to avoid relegation for again, they need to start scoring more goals.

STAR MAN - He'll be disappointed to be on the losing side, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka continued to impress with yet another solid performance.

Lloris jumped on Townsend's 84th-minute volley from Schlupp's set up, and then stayed big to block from Sorloth, who should have opened his Premier League account when Milivojevic's deflected shot rolled perfectly into his path. Matched up against Ben Davies and the unsafe Lucas Moura on the right hand side, Wan-Bissaka kept both men quiet for the majority of the game and put in some key challenges to prevent goal scoring opportunities.

"I think everyone watching that game today would suggest that gap [to the top six] isn't too great", Hodgson said.

Spurs were dealt an injury blow when Kieran Trippier limped off midway through the first half and is now a doubt for England's upcoming internationals with the US and Croatia.

However, they more than stood up to the task.

Starting XI: Lloris (7); Trippier (6), Foyth (9*), Alderweireld (7), Davies (7); Sissoko (7), Wanyama (6); Lamela (6), Alli (6), Moura (6); Kane (6). Subs: Aurier 6, Son 6, Winks 5.

Juan Foyth's header in the second half - one week after conceding two penalties in Spurs' match against Wolves - redeemed the Argentine youngster and ensured Spurs would remain the top four of the table going into the global break.

Under pressure Southampton boss Mark Hughes remains in trouble after seeing his side held 1-1 at home by Watford.

It was the defender's first goal in senior football and it was enough to make sure Tottenham took all three points and moved four ahead of rivals Arsenal in the league standings; Spurs sit fourth.

It's a good sign that the North London club are still on the main winning games and everything could be falling into place for them, as key players return from injury.

"I could have had one or two this season, could or should have had two or three assists, but, like the rest of the team, for some reason it's just not going in for us".
