That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
This victory moves Palace up to 11th in the table and next up for them is a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool. Meanwhile Tottenham remain top for now and they face Chelsea next time out.
Crystal Palace clinch their first win of the season, with a terrific 3-0 success over Tottenham, after Zaha converted from the penalty spot and Edouard scored a brace on his debut. Palace dominated much of the game and had numerous chances to break the deadlock, with Gallagher and Mitchell both going close. The main turning point happened just before the hour mark, when Tanganga was sent off for a second yellow card and Spurs had to play the rest of the match with 10 men. Davies then gave away a penalty and Zaha converted it on 76 minutes, before Edouard came off the bench to grab two goals and make it 3-0.
C. Gallagher
90' + 3' Gallagher is another Palace player who has been excellent today and he showed great vision to pick out Edouard in space, who made it 3-0.
O. Édouard
90' + 3' GOAL! Edouard scores his second of the game and makes it 3-0! What a debut by the striker! Olise takes on Davies down the right, before flicking it inside to Gallagher, who lays it off to Edouard in the box and he fires it into the back of the net. Lloris gets a touch on it, but he can't stop it from flying in.
90' + 2' Gallagher catches Davies out in possession right on the edge of his own penalty area, but luckily for Tottenham, the ball spins straight back to Lloris, who gathers.
90' There will be a minimum of three minutes added time played at the end of the second half.
C. Gallagher
Yellow Card
89' Gallagher is booked after a high challenge on Davies on the halfway line, catching the Tottenham defender late.
88' There's not long to play now and Palace are still pushing in search of another goal, with Tottenham not offering anything at the other end of the pitch.
M. Olise
J. Ayew
86' Third and final Palace substitution now, with Ayew coming off and he has been replaced by Olise, who is also making his debut.
W. Zaha
84' Zaha scored the opening goal and has now set up the second, perfectly picking Edouard out in the box, who did the rest with a fine finish.
O. Édouard
84' GOAL! Dream debut for Edouard as he makes it 2-0 within seconds of coming on! Zaha sprints down the left wing and gets into the box, before pulling it back to Edouard, who takes a touch and then fires the ball towards the bottom right corner. Lloris can't quite reach it and it flies into the back of the net.
O. Édouard
C. Benteke
84' Another Palace change, with Edouard coming on for his debut as Benteke departs.
Lucas Moura
Yellow Card
81' Silly booking to pick up for Moura, after he throws the ball into the ground in frustration at not being given a free-kick.
80' Tottenham with a corner, a good chance for the visitors to create something in front of goal. However, Palace comfortably clear the danger.
78' Selhurst Park is rocking at the moment, the home fans are loving this performance from their side and unless Tottenham can create something late on, it looks like Palace will pick up their first win of the season.
W. Zaha
Penalty Goal
76' GOAL! Palace finally have the breakthrough, Zaha makes it 1-0 from the penalty spot! Davies gave away the penalty and Zaha stepped up to take it, coolly sending Lloris the wrong way and firing the ball into the back of the net.
75' PALACE PENALTY! Gallagher tries to cross the ball in the box, but Davies comes across and makes the block, but his arm is outstretched and it clearly strikes him. The linesman immediately flags for a penalty and the referee points to the spot.
73' OFF THE LINE! Reguilon saves the day for Tottenham! Mitchell gets to the byline down the left wing, before chipping the ball into the box, looking for a team-mate, but it almost flies in! It beats Lloris, who can't quite reach it and almost sails into the far corner of the net. However, Reguilon gets back and heads it off the line in the nick of time.
71' Kane has scored 38 goals in Premier League London derby matches, second only to Thierry Henry (43) in the competition. Kane has been involved in 12 goals in 14 Premier League games against Crystal Palace (7 goals, 5 assists), including six in seven at Selhurst Park.
69' There is still plenty of time left on the clock for Palace to grab a goal against the 10 men of Tottenham, who are sitting very deep at the moment.
L. Milivojević
C. Kouyaté
67' Palace make their first substitution now, with Kouyate the man coming off and he has been replaced by Milivojevic.
66' BLOCKED! Superb defending by Alli to deny Ayew, after the striker waited for the ball to fall for him in the box and he smashed a volley towards goal. However, Alli got across brilliantly and made an excellent block.
64' Tottenham have given away a few too many free-kicks in dangerous positions today, with Alli the latest to hand Palace a set piece, after fouling Gallagher. However, Spurs clear the danger.
62' It looks like Davies will drop into the centre-back position alongside Rodon for the remainder of the game. They are going to have a lot to deal with over the next half an hour, with Palace looking to make their man advantage count.
B. Davies
H. Winks
60' Tottenham have made a change in the aftermath of the sending off, with Winks heading off and he has been replaced by Davies.
58' RED CARD! Tanganga is shown a second yellow card and is given his marching orders! The defender has been on edge since the Zaha challenge and he dives into a tackle with Ayew, getting nowhere near the ball and catching the striker late. The referee immediately makes his decision and Tanganga is off, so Tottenham are down to 10 men.
57' Tottenham have only failed to score in one of their 12 Premier League away games against Crystal Palace (W7 D3 L2), doing so in a 3-0 defeat in January 2005. Spurs have netted exactly once in each of their last five league games at Selhurst Park.
55' The pressure continues from Palace, they were on top at the end of the first half and they have started the second period really well. Tottenham need to up their game.
W. Zaha
Yellow Card
53' Zaha is also shown a yellow card, as his arms didn't strike the face of Tanganga, so he is just told to cool things.
J. Tanganga
Yellow Card
53' Tanganga is given a warning by the referee and shown a yellow card for his part in the Zaha coming together. Both players just need to calm down.
52' Tanganga deliberately stepped across Zaha and blocks his path as the winger sprinted down the left wing and broke into the final third. However, Zaha jumps up and gets in the face of Tanganga, causing loads of players to pile in to try and separate them. Tempers are high.
50' CHANCE! Palace work it well in the final third once again and the ball drops really nicely for Gallagher in the middle of the box, who volleys an effort towards goal. However, it takes a slight deflection off Reguilon, before smashing into Rodon, blocking the shot.
48' Moura has been a bright spark for Tottenham today, he does well again in the final third and manages to work space for a shot from the edge of the box, but it's too close to Guaita, who makes a comfortable save.
46' The second half is under way!
Tottenham may need to make sure changes in order to get back into this one as they've been poor and Kane has hardly touched the ball. Meanwhile for Palace, Gallagher has been excellent and he looks like the key man for the hosts.
It’s goalless at the break between Crystal Palace and Tottenham, but the hosts have had the best chance of the game so far, with Gallagher testing Lloris from close range just before half-time, but the Spurs keeper made a great save. Tottenham started well, but couldn’t fashion a chance in the final third and Palace grew into the match, looking dangerous going forward through Zaha and Gallagher.
45' There will be a minimum of one minute added time played at the end of the first half.
44' Palace won't want the first half to end as they are well on top at the moment and have Tottenham against the ropes, who just haven't got going and they've been poor.
42' CHANCE! Zaha does brilliantly down the left, beating Emerson and sneaking into the box, before skipping past Hojbjerg, getting to the byline and drilling a cross towards the near post. Gallagher meets it and turns a shot towards goal, but Lloris makes himself big and pulls off an excellent save to deny him.
41' Poor effort! Gallagher is given far too much time and space on the edge of the box, so the midfielder opts to fire a shot at goal, but he gets his strike all wrong and it sails over the crossbar.
40' There isn’t long left to play before the end of the first half, can either side break the deadlock before the half-time whistle?
38' It's all Palace now and the crowd are really getting behind them, creating a fantastic atmosphere inside Selhurst Park. They just need to try and test Lloris now.
36' This is better from Palace, they are starting to see more of the ball and are forcing Tottenham to drop back to soak up the pressure.
34' Not too far away! Zaha cuts in from the left wing and drills a low strike towards the bottom left corner of the net, but it takes a slight deflection and flies wide of the post.
32' Lovely play between Gallagher and Ayew down the right wing, with Gallagher then shouting for the return pass in the box, but Ayew instead opts to cross and his ball is poor and Rodon clears.
31' We’re past the half an hour mark now and it remains goalless between Crystal Palace and Tottenham, with neither team looking like breaking the deadlock any time soon.
29' Gallagher scored both of Crystal Palace’s goals against West Ham last time out, having netted just twice in his previous 31 Premier League appearances combined.
27' Poor challenge! Alli dives in on Kouyate, barging him in the back and sending the midfielder to the floor near the touchline. No need for that and he gets a warning from the referee.
25' The final ball just hasn’t been good enough for either side yet, but Emerson just delivered a cross into the penalty area from the right wing, but it’s a poor ball and Guaita easily gathers.
23' Emerson has done well against Zaha so far down the right wing, with the Palace winger constantly trying to get forward and stretch the Spurs defence.
21' Decent chance! Gallagher steps up to take a free-kick around 25 yards out, after Alli fouled Ayew in a dangerous position. However, Gallagher's effort has too much on it and it flies over the bar.
20' Tottenham don't seem to be playing with much width at the moment, it is all down the middle, so it is very congested and Palace are able to deal with any danger.
18' We still haven't seen any attempts on goal by either side, with both defences playing well and looking very comfortable, but Palace have certainly had more to do.
16' Palace haven't seen much of the ball so far in the opening minutes of the game, with Tottenham controlling it well in midfield for the most part.
14' Crystal Palace are winless in their last 12 Premier League meetings with Spurs (D2 L10) since a 2-1 win in January 2015. The Eagles have scored just four goals in this run, failing to find the net on eight occasions.
J. Rodon
E. Dier
12' Here is the enforced substitution, with Dier limping off and he has been replaced by Rodon.
11' It looks like Dier is going to have to come off, the centre-back is down again and Rodon is getting stripped and ready on the sidelines. Big blow for Tottenham early on.
9' Good move! Gallagher loses the ball in the final third and Spurs race forward into the box, with Moura trying to work space for a shot, but instead he lays it off to Alli, but Ward manages to sneak in and clear the danger.
8' Injury concern here for Tottenham as Dier is down with an injury after a collision with Ayew, after Lloris threw the ball out to him and Ayew was lurking nearby, so Dier had to dive in to make sure he got the ball first. However, it looks like he will be fine to continue.
6' Kane was in fine form for England on international duty, scoring a goal in all three games, but he is yet to score for Tottenham so far this season. Can he change that today?
4' Lovely skill! Moura does brilliantly to skip past four Palace players and sprint into their half of the pitch, but unfortunately he can't get any further forward and Palace clear the danger in time.
3' Alli is playing slightly higher up the pitch than normal today, dropping just behind Kane as Spurs have a three-man midfield who will want to get on the ball a lot.
1' We're under way!
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just a few minutes away, stay tuned for all the match action!
Meanwhile Tottenham have made three changes to their starting line-up, with Davinson Sanchez missing out due to COVID quarantine rules and Son Heung-Min and Steven Bergwijn picked up injuries on international duty. They have been replaced by Moura, Winks and Emerson, who makes his debut for Spurs after joining from Barcelona.
Palace name the same side that drew with West Ham last time out, but they do have a few new faces on the bench, with Hughes and Edouard hoping to make their debuts today.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Matt Doherty, Bryan Gil, Joe Rodon, Pierluigi Gollini, Tanguy Ndombele, Ben Davies, Dane Scarlett, Dilan Markanday, Tobi Omole.

Crystal Palace are yet to pick up their first win of the season, but they did come from behind to gain a point against West Ham last time out, with Conor Gallagher scoring a brace in a 2-2 draw. This leaves Palace 14th in the table.
