Vincente Guaita wins Crystal Palace Man of the Match after spectacular saves v Tottenham Hotspur

"It’s one point," he said. "An important point. It’s difficult today against the first position but I’m very happy because one point is good.

"It was important because it’s one point for Crystal Palace. The fans have come back so it’s very, very important."

However, the Spaniard was also asked to explain a more frustrating moment: Harry Kane's swerving early goal.

The Palace 'keeper reflected on it, saying: "The ball is moving. I think it’s my right, it changed side, it’s difficult. He [Kane] is a good player, I think he’s the best striker in the Premier League. Today, no save. Maybe next week, save."

Finally, Guaita discussed the return of 2,000 fans to Selhurst Park, something that made a significant impact on the afternoon.

"Two-thousand fans [in-stadium] and all the fans at home are important for the team.

"I missed the fans. Today I think the fans were the one goal - sometimes without fans it’s not really football."
