Palace winger Zaha recovering ahead of schedule - Hodgson

A patchwork Eagles side with 12 players sidelined frustrated Spurs for the vast majority of the game but they allowed Harry Kane to net an 88th minute victor. At 53 minutes, Kane was unable to score once again.

Roy Hodgson admits Mamadou Sakho is struggling with a fear factor after the centre back's return to Crystal Palace's relegation battle was put on hold.

Hodgson said: "We do our team talk about Tottenham and discuss their players but we certainly don't discuss Dele Alli and diving, because I don't think he does".

Referee Friend did point to the spot on the half-hour mark after Timothy Fosu-Mensah brought down Kane, only for the official to quickly change his decision with the linesman's flag correctly raised for offside. It also marked Tottenham midfielder Erik Lamela's 100th Premier League appearance.

However, he says that the Brazilian will not sign in time to be in the squad to face Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

'At the moment he is making it clear that he doesn't feel confident enough to play.

Palace's first-half chances were limited to headers in the box and defender James Tomkins tested Hugo Lloris with once as the hosts did well to stop service into Kane and Dele Alli. Eriksen dinked a attractive cross that dropped right to the feet of Kane around two-yards out, but he directed his shot just wide. His 150th goal for his club.

- Spurs have conceded just one goal in their last six games against the Eagles in the Premier League, winning all six meetings.

- The Eagles haven't won any of their eight Premier League games when Wilfried Zaha didn't feature this season (P8 W0 D0 L8).
