The game turned in five minutes in the first half, with Spurs scoring twice thanks to Harry Kane and Lucas Moura before Wilfried Zaha was sent off for a second warning.
Heung-min Son added a third after the break to leave Spurs unbeaten in six league appearances under the Italian.
Dan Kilpatrick was at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to assess Spurs players …
Well commissioned his region on his 35th birthday, courageously claiming a number of crosses. I had no backup to do.
Reserved for an awkward challenge on Jordan Ayew but otherwise undisturbed in another impressive display.
Commander in the center of the three backs and used the ball well. It must be said that the entire back line has barely been tested by Palace, who failed to register a significant effort on the target.
At first he looked uncomfortable on the left of the three full-backs, but grew up in the game and faced Conor Gallagher’s forays on the right.
Influence on the first two goals, freeing Lucas from a nice pass for the first and crosses for his compatriot for the second. Left-back Tyrick Mitchell was busy throughout the game.
Tidy at the base of the midfield and changed the game a few times.
Another display all in action in the middle of the park. He was looking to move Spurs forward when he had the ball and was generally robust out of possession. Passed to Lucas in preparation for the third goal.
Well advanced and placed a few dangerous crosses, including one that Lucas should have converted to 0-0. His last ball could still improve, but he is adapting well to the position of winger.
Scored the goals for Kane and Son, and scored the second himself with a brave header. So often frustrating in the past but, under Conte, he’s starting to look like a true match winner.
Finished the cross from Lucas to continue his hot streak. Tested Jack Butland with an early but silent effort before scoring.
Opened the scoring with a quick first result in a strong performance. He has now scored in consecutive League games and will be looking to start the new year.
Steven Bergwijn (Kane 63 ‘) 7
Underlined his renewed confidence with training and a low shot at Butland. Replaced at the front for the last 30 minutes.
Made his first League appearance under Conte and was involved in a late good chance for Lucas.
Tanguy Ndombele (Hojbjerg 78 ‘) 6
Some nice passes from the base of the midfielder. Hope for a start soon.
Not used: Gollini, Doherty, Winks, Rodon, Dele, Davies.
