Christian Benteke has netted an equaliser for Crystal Palace on the stroke of half-time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs dominated for the bulk of the first-half, with Jose Mourinho’s men set to head into the half-time break a goal to the good after Gareth Bale continued his good run of form by converting from a Harry Kane pass across the face of goal.
However, Tottenham managed to score just the solitary goal, a slender lead, and have paid the price as a result, with Christian Benteke scoring in injury time to draw Palace level against the run of play.
This is vintage Benteke, rising high between the centre-backs and finding the back of the net with a superb defender. The Belgian has done it countless times over his Premier League career, but even now, teams are finding it difficult to stop him.
A brilliant header from Benteke, and it’s very much game on in North London…
????, ?????? ‘?????? ??????’. ?
Christian Benteke towers over Toby Alderweireld to power an effort into the top corner for the equaliser! ?
