Tottenham Hotspurs has not been winning matches convincingly this season so far but the most important thing is the result. Last weekend, Crystal Palace did everything to get something out of the London clash against Spurs but they wasted too many chances.
Mauricio Pochetino side struggled to break down Roy Hodgson well-organized machine. However, Juan Foyth capitalized on a defensive mix up to score his first goal in Premier League. This will be a huge goal for him after giving away two penalties a week earlier against Wolves. Spurs are now fourth on the table with 27 points.
4. Sol Bamba- 1 Goal (Winner)

Last weekend, the smelt blood when their opponents Brighton got a red card in the 34th minute. They fought hard to get something out of this game and it paid off in the 90th minute thanks to defender Sol Bamba. He might have been offside when the ball first came in the box but he was onside when the rebound found his right foot. Chris Houghton side did well defensively but when the giant centre-back was sent forward, it was too hard to stop him.
3. Salah & Shaqiri- 2 Goals

Liverpool will soon run out of steam chasing the perfect Manchester City side unless they can decide to drop their Champions League ambitions to concentrate on the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp side defeated Fulham to go top but Pep Guardiola side won again in the derby to go back top. This happened again two weeks ago when they played Tottenham at Wembley.
The Reds did their job against Fulham at Anfield hoping to go to the International break top of the log. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring with a great goal in the 41st minute and Xherdan Shaqiri made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute. They are 2 points behind City.
