Crystal Palace ensured Tottenham Hotspur marked the opening match in their new stadium with a victory after suffering a 2-0 defeat.

The Eagles were well organised and resolute and restricted Spurs to few chances in a goalless first half at the newly-built Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But 10 minutes after the break, Son Heung-min netted the first Premier League goal at the arena with a strike from the edge of the box that deflected in off Luka Milivojevic.

They made it 2-0 in the 80th minute when Christian Eriksen fired in the loose ball from close range after Harry Kane tangled with James McArthur.

Roy Hodgson's side remain eight points above the bottom three on 36 points with six matches left to play.

Tottenham: Lloris, Trippier, Rose (Winks 69), Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Son Heung-Min (Wanyama 90), Kane, Sissoko, Alli (Moura 82), Eriksen, Davies.

Not used: Gazzaniga, Sanchez, Walker-Peters, Foyth.

Palace: Guaita, Van Aanholt, Kelly, Tomkins, Wan-Bissaka, McArthur, Kouyate, Milivojevic, Zaha, Schlupp (Townsend 79), Batshuayi (Benteke 82)

Not used: Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Meyer, Ayew.
