Heung-Min Son scored a second-half winner as Tottenham looked good value for all three points against Pardew's men.
But goalkeeper Hugo Lloris still found himself called upon to make at least three big saves against the Eagles. And that's why both Pochettino and Pardew were full of praise for the goalkeeper after the game.
Indeed, the Crystal Palace boss thought the 28-year-old was Spurs' man of the match, although he admitted his side needed to be much better going forward.
AP: We should've done slightly better in situations. Going forward we weren't as good as usual, but Lloris was there man of the match.— Crystal Palace FC (@CPFC) September 20, 2015
And Tottenham head coach Pochettino praised the 'fantastic' Frenchman, as well. The Argentine had good words to say of his whole team but singled Lloris out, making the claim that he is one of the best shot stoppers in the world.
Mauricio: "It was a fantastic performance by Hugo and the whole team. Hugo is a top level keeper - one of the best in the world." #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) September 20, 2015
The Premier League table now looks far healthier for the White Hart Lane outfit after two wins from two games. The north London side still have a way to go but they are now up to ninth, just a place behind Crystal Palace.
