Premier League top-four chasers Tottenham Hotspur began life at their new stadium with a win over London rivals Crystal Palace.

The Palace game was the first competitive game at the new White Hart Lane and it ended in a comfortable victory for the North Londoners.

Spurs beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at home to boost their top-four hopes via the first victory in six Premier League games.

Before the Palace game, Tottenham picked up just one point from the possible 15 points (5 games).

The Eagles frustrated the home team throughout the first half as both sides played out a goalless draw at the halftime interval.

Things changed for the better for Spurs with ten minutes gone when South Korean international Son Heung-Min found the back of the net for the first competitive goal of the brand new stadium off an assist from Christian Eriksen who impressed a great deal for his team.

Danish international Eriksen has been touted as a possible transfer addition to clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The former Ajax Amsterdam player has one year left on his current deal with Spurs.

He added a second goal to wrap up the result for Tottenham Hotspur with ten minutes left as Spurs leapfrogged North London rivals Arsenal into fourth place.
