Tottenham Hotspur got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start with a 1-0 away win over Crystal Palace.

After keeping Tottenham at bay for much of the first half, a Dean Moxey handball gave the visitors a penalty which Roberto Soldado duly converted.

Spurs had chances to add to their lead, with Jermain Defoe and Gylfi Sigurdsson coming notably close.

Palace worked Andre Villas-Boas' side hard in the last 20 minutes, and might have sneaked an equalizer but for some outstanding goalkeeping from Hugo Lloris.
