Tottenham press conference live: Antonio Conte on Lucas Moura, Emerson Royal and Palace request – Football.London

Antonio Conte is holding his press conference following Tottenham’s 3-0 win against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.

Palace had put in a request to the Premier League to have the match postponed due to Covid cases in their camp but that was rejected.

The visitors were without manager Patrick Vieira, who was one of those who had tested positive within their club.

Spurs scored twice in a matter of minutes in the first half. Both goals saw Brazilian combinations with Harry Kane doing the trick.

First Emerson Royal set Lucas Moura free down the right and his first-time ball in to Kane was sent into the goal via the flapping hand of Butland.

Then Kane put Emerson away down the right and he stood the ball up perfectly in the air for Lucas to leap high and head home.

Palace then lost Wilfried Zaha to an incredibly daft second yellow card, pushing Davinson Sanchez after the ball had gone out of play.

Tottenham wrapped up the three points in the second half when Lucas found Son Heung-min to flick home the hosts’ third.

Our Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold is among those putting the questions to Conte following the match.
