Christian Benteke & Son Heung-Min Completely Forget To Take A Knee During Crystal Palace Vs Tottenham

Christian Benteke and Son Heung-min forgot to take a knee at the beginning of Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur - before stopping to do so.

Palace welcomed 2000 fans inside Selhurst Park for this afternoon's clash and Benteke looked keen to get going.

As referee Kevin Friend blew his whistle, the Belgian darted into the Spurs half and Son tried to wrestle him to the ground.

But both men quickly realised nobody else was playing and dropped to one knee, with Benteke shimmying back to his own half.

The game ended 1-1 and it was a well-earned point for the home side.

Spurs had taken the lead thanks to a Harry Kane strike which caught out Eagles keeper Vicente Guaita.

Jose Mourinho's men were then tested with Benteke and Eberechi Eze having glorious chances.

Palace's dominance paid off in the second half as Jeffrey Schlupp bundled home an equaliser ten minutes from time.

Guaita was called into action in the dying embers however, making huge saves from a Kane header and Eric Dier free-kick.

Do you think Tottenham Hotspur can win the Premier League?
