Lazy star must be axed: Three things learned about Tottenham from win v Crystal Palace

They dominated possession against Swansea and Burnley, which both finished as draws, while were limited with how much they saw the ball against Real Madrid, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund, all of which resulted in comfortable victories for Tottenham.
