Ayew, Schlupp feature in Crystal Palace’s heavy defeat to Tottenham

Ghanaian duo Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlup featured as Crystal Palace were thumped 4-0 by Tottenham on Saturday afternoon.

Schlupp lasted the entire duration while Ayew was replaced in the the 71st minute by Christian Benteke.

South Korea forward Son capitalised on a defensive lapse from returning Palace defender Mamadou Sakho to fire the hosts into an early lead, before visiting left-back Patrick van Aanholt inadvertently directed a cross from right-back Serge Aurier into his own net.

Son connected beautifully with another Aurier cross to make it 3-0, and Erik Lamela finished off another flowing move involving Son and Harry Kane to complete the scoring.
