According to former Palace striker, Ian Wright, the intensity of the Spurs’ players on Saturday helped them get a 4-0 win.

On Saturday’s English Premier League fixture, Tottenham Hotspur defeated Crystal Palace 4-0.

And according to former Eagles attacker, Ian Wright, the Spurs’ intensity helped them win.

“Tottenham in this game started strongly, they just shot out of the blocks and showed their intentions right from the start,” he said according to Football London.

“They [Palace] give Alderweireld far too much space and he can pick outpaces.”

“The intensity they had today, Son was excellent and I think Winks was great. They caused them all sorts of problems, it was hurting Palace and they couldn’t get near them,” he added.

“I think we should play like this always, and perform like this always, we have to try like this and we’re really, really happy to get three points.”
