Gareth Bale and Harry Kane scored double for a win over Crystal Palace

In the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur beat Crystal Palace for the third time in a row. Gareth Bale and Harry Kane both scored twice.

Bale, who is on loan at Real Madrid, had Kane to thank for both of his goals, opening the scoring with a tap-in from Kane’s cross and then heading in a superb second from another Kane assist.

Between those two goals, with a fine header from Luka Milivojevic’s cross, Christian Benteke had equalized for Palace.

Although Roy Hodgson’s side hit the post thanks to the return of Wilfried Zaha, they were unable to cope with the hosts’ firepower.

Before Son Heung-cut-back min’s completed the scoring, Kane, who had previously served as a distributor, opened his account for the evening with a wonderful finish from 20 yards into the top right corner.

The goal marked a significant milestone, as Kane and Son now have scored more goals in a single season than any other Premier League duo.

Tottenham moves up to the sixth position in the table, just two points off a top-four spot, while Palace remains in 13th place.
