Moussa Sissoko entered the fray, with Eric Dier dropping into the back three with Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez.

Spurs also count Juan Foyth amongst center back options with Crystal Palace visiting Wembley Stadium at 7 a.m. ET Sunday.

Dele Alli scored soon after the substitution to give Spurs a 1-0 lead.
