The South Korea forward pounced on a weak clearance to curl in a shot from just inside the area in the 64th minute, as a depleted Spurs side eked out a victory over the league's last-place team.

Roy Hodgson has stressed that he "can't ask much more" from the Crystal Palace players following their 1-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

With Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm injured, the Argentine started against London rivals Palace and gave a good account of himself.

RH: I'd settle for a worse performance & better result.

Eric Dier was also full of praise for the former Gillingham stopper, saying: "It was a great day for Paulo, I thought he did really, really well".

"It was hard circumstances for him, and he came in and did really well".

The contest between The Eagles and Spurs proved to be tight and could have gone either way at one point, however, Mauricio Pochettino's men found the breakthrough halfway through the second-half.

"There's no point beating Real Madrid on Wednesday if you can't win at here at home on the weekend as well".

There was a moment of worry for Spurs when Harry Kane needed treatment after a strong Timothy Fosu-Mensah challenge, but the home talisman was soon back on his feet and saw his side miss a chance when defender Danny Rose headed wide from Serge Aurier's cross.

Wilfried Zaha scuffed wide after taking the ball around Gazzaniga - Palace's best chance - but Hodgson refused to single out the previous week's last-minute goal hero.

Gazzaniga also had to be alert to deny Luka Milivojevic's close-range header and Palace were made to pay for their profligacy.

The goal came after 64 minutes when the ball fell to Son Heung-Min on the edge of the box after a cross was not properly dealt with and the South Korea worldwide curled an outstanding finish past Speroni and into the corner.
