Tottenham have won at Selhurst Park and keep their title hopes alive. It's a win that will be remembered for a simply astonishing strike from Dele Alli, who may have already settled debates over the goal of the season.

FULL TIME: Crystal Palace 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham seal it! And on any other day, Chadli would have done it with the goal of the game. But thanks to Alli's effort, this will have to settle for second best. From out on the left, the Belgian drives infield across three Palace players and curls a wonderful effort into the far corner from outside the box. That should be that.

Bentaleb has the chance to seal it after being fed through by a wonderful ball from Alli, but he hammers his shot over the bar.

Alli denies another wonderful goal! The 19-year-old brilliantly ghosts through Delaney with a sublime first time nutmeg to break into the box, but is denied a second as his shot comes back off the cross bar.

Five minutes of time added on at Selhurst Park.

We will be lucky to see a better goal than that this season. That was frankly ridiculous from Alli. The first touch, the clip over Dann, the swivel and the shot was out of this world.

What a goal from Alli! That is astonishing from the 19-year-old. Receiving the ball just outside the box he instantly controls it, lifts it over his marker's head and drills a sweet volley into the corner of the net in one fluid motion. Phenomenal from the midfielder.

Palace denied by the woodwork twice! Puncheon 's delivery to the far post is wonderful and Dann is well placed to meet it,but watches as his effort bounces off the cross bar. It falls to Jedinak, who has a yard of space to crack off a volley, but the slightest deflection sees that bounce off the bar too!

Trippier shown a deserved booking after blocking off Puncheon, who had jinked inside him from the left.

Just over 10 minutes remaining at Selhurst Park as Spurs come forward again with lovely one-touch football but Eriksen's final ball for the onrushing Trippier is just under hit and Dann can scamper across to force it out.

Alderweireld has been struggling for the last few minutes and Pochettino is going mad trying to get someone to put the ball out of play so he can make the change. He finally gets his wish and Kevin Wimmer is coming on for the Belgium international.

Palace have a corner but Spurs defend it and surge forward on the break through Alli. The 19-year-old charges down the pitch but is eventually hauled down by Ledley.

Palace close again! Soare drives a low effort through a crowd of players, forcing Lloris into another fine save. The ball spills to Wickham who gets off a shot, but is well blocked by Aldeweireld.

What a save from Lloris! A great cross from the right just evades Wickham, but it breaks kindly to Zaha at an inviting angle. He tries to curl one into the far corner but is denied by a wonderful diving save from the Frenchman.

Eriksen stands over the free kick but it's an awful effort by his high standard, driving a fairly weak one straight into the Palace wall.

Spurs have another free kick in a good position as Zaha is beaten to a loose ball by Rose, clipping the Spurs man in the process.

Spurs have their equaliser! Palace fail to clear and Chadli can lift a cross in from the edge of the box out on the left. Damien Delaney is close to Kane, but is outjumped my a magnificent leap from the Spurs striker, who steers a header past Hennessey.

Neat interplay from Spurs as Alli, Dembele and Eriksen combine before the Belgian sees his shot charged down. Spurs are getting closer.

McArthur effectively rugby tackles Son as the Spurs forward surges towards goal, taking his inevitable booking.

The ball breaks kindly to Kane inside the box after Eriksen tried to squirm his way into the box but the striker is offside as his weak effort is saved by Hennessey.

Spurs are absolutely dominant at the moment. Mauricio Pochettino has brought Nacer Chadli onto replace Dier to help them find the goal they chase.

Dier lifts an excellent cross from deep in towards the far post which is met by a diving header from Kane, but he nods it into the ground, making it a far easier save for Hennessey to make.

After a brief stoppage as Cabaye receives some treatment, Palace come forward again but Puncheon's cross is plucked out of the air by Lloris.

Eriksen comes so, so close to scoring a sensational effort range. About 25 yards out, he looks for goal with a wonderful dipping effort that is milimeters from dropping into the top corner.

Big appeals for a penalty from Tottenham. Son tried to clip the ball over Scott Dann who appeared to block it with his hand, but the referee isn't interested.

From that corner, the ball deflects to Alli on the edge of the D. Trying to do his best impression of Paul Scholes, he takes on the volley, but gets it horribly wrong.

Decent chance for Spurs. Trippier skips inside past his man and whips a lovely ball in, looking for Kane, but Delaney gets across him just in time to make an excellent intervention and clear for a corner.

And we are back underway for the second half.

Half time: Crystal Palace 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs try the short routine but it comes to nothing. A moment later, Alderweireld finds himself in a wide position and tries to lift a cross into the box, but instead sends it woefully into the stands.

Spurs have another corner as we approach half time at Selhurst Park.

Kane now threads a wicked ball across the face of goal that Ward and Dann could so easily prod past their own goalkeeper, but both centre backs leave it, allowing it to run out of play to safety.

Hennessey denies Rose! An excellent ball over from the right to find Rose's onrushing run towards the far post. His connection with the ball is a clean one, but it's pinged straight at the Palace goalkeeper, to his credit, made himself big.

Zaha leaves Rose on his backside with a jinking run in from the right and tries his luck on goal, rather than finding a teammate in the middle. His shot is straight at Lloris. That's Zaha in a nutshell, there.

Alderweireld spreads the ball brilliantly to Trippier whose first time cross is controlled wonderfully by Son. He is just squeezed out as he is about to pull the trigger however and Palace hack away for a corner.

Alderweireld receives a layoff about 30 yards out, easily cuts inside Cabaye and tries his luck with an effort from range. It's close to being on target, and Kane is even closer to getting his studs on it himself, but can't quite stretch far enough.

Palace lead! They have just gone eight hours without finding the back of the net and they have still needed a helping hand from the opposition to score here. Eriksen is caught on the edge of his own area, allowing Cabaye to shift it to Zaha who can play an inviting ball across goal. Vertonghen gets their before Wickham, but can only put it through his own net.

Goal! Crystal Palace 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Jan Vertonghen OG, 29)

Spurs almost prise Palace with a superb move that results in Eriksen clipping a ball over for the onrushing Alli, but under pressure from his marker, he's unable to get his shot off in time.

Puncheon and Tripper crash into each other as the Palace man leaps to win a high ball in the Spurs box and concedes the free kick for his efforts.

Tottenham have gained control of this contest as we pass the 20 minute mark , but a mistake from Lloris almost allows Palace in. I say a mistake. It literally looks like he has passed it straight to Zaha, who passed across the face of goal, looking for Wickham, but the striker can't turn his effort on goal.

Elsewhere in our 3pm kick offs, Bournemouth have the only goal of the afternoon so far with Benik Afobe getting his second for the club against Sunderland.

Eriksen lifts another one in the Alderweireld is on the end of, but he powers his effort wide.

Tottenham win a corner that Eriksen pings towards Rose, who must be the shortest target available to him. The full back wins his header though, keeping the overhit corner alive, and the ball is eventually worked back over to the right where Kane wriggles his way in, testing Hennessey with a low effort. Another corner.

Zaha again threatens to cause problems down the right, but this time Dier is hot on his tail, sliding in and knocking the ball over the Palace winger and winning the goal kick.

Son does brilliantly to hold off Delaney and then jink inside Cabaye to drive towards goal, but his effort from range is a tame one in the end that fails to trouble Hennessey.

Trippier almost catches Hennessey out with his cross from the deep needing to be palmed over the bar. Eriksen swings in the resulting free kick but Ward clears.

Son is left in a heap after a rather meaty looking challenge from Wickham in the centre circle.

Harry Kane is played through by Alli but has his shot charged down by Soare. The Spurs striker had drifted offside anyway, good line held by the home side.

Jason Puncheon tries to curl one up and over but gets too much on it, lifting it over the bar.

Wilfried Zaha cuts in from the right and drives through the heart of Palace. Danny Rose can't stay on him, forcing Vertonghen to step across and concede the foul on the edge of the box.

And we are underway at Selhurst Park .

Palace are without a goal in their last four appearances this season, a return that has seen them slip to ninth in the table. Spurs meanwhile can move to within a point of third placed Manchester City if they can claim all three points in south east London this afternoon.

BREAKING: Damien Delaney is fit to start in defence.

Crystal Palace team to face Tottenham: Hennessey; Ward, Dann, Delaney (c), Souare; Ledley, Cabaye; Zaha, McArthur, Puncheon; Wickham.

BREAKING: As expected, Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are back in the starting XI.

Tottenham team to face Crystal Palace: Lloris (C), Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Son, Alli, Kane

Subs: Vorm, Davies, Wimmer, Bentaleb, Carroll, Lamela, Chadli

Crystal Palace are without a single goal in their last four Premier League games and thus have been linked with every breathing striker under the sun. Nicklas Bendtner is the latest to join that list, but who needs him when you have Connor Wickham? Alan Pardew this week has backed the former Ipswich and Sunderland striker to emulate Harry Kane, the man he recognises as the best in his position in the Premier League.

Pardew's side are even shorter on firepower this afternoon, however, with Dwight Gayle and Yannick Bolasie injury absentees. They are joined on the sidelines by Damien Delaney.

Tottenham on the other hand are relatively injury-free. Although Ryan Mason remains sidelined with an ankle problem, Mauricio Pochettinio has a full squad to choose from. It's a fresh squad, too, after Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen were all rested in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Leicester mid-week.
