Tottenham Hotspur manage a narrow victory over Scott Parker‘s Fulham at the Craven Cottage. Here are 3 talking points from the fixture.
Tottenham Hotspur managed to scrape past Fulham in the Premier League after a narrow 0-1 away victory at Craven Cottage. Spurs opened their scoring in the first half after a quick counter-attack ended up being an own goal as Dele Alli‘s strike in the box ricochet Tosin Adarabioyo of Fulham.
After the first half, Tottenham seemed to have switched off. Such inconsistent displays is certainly a worrying cause for Jose Mourinho who could possibly be sacked at the end of the season if Spurs once again finish this season trophyless. Fixtures against sides like Fulham should be games where the Lilywhites capitalise on if they are to finish in the top four spot this season.

IT ALMOST WENT HORRIBLY WRONG FOR TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
Former Sunderland forward, 22-year-old Josh Maja found the back of the net in the second half. However, VAR was quick to nullify the goal due to a handball in the penalty area while Davinson Sanchez was clearing the ball. There has been a lot of talk behind this decision as supporters of Fulham believe that the goal should have stood.
Had the goal not been ruled out by the VAR, it would have been game-over for Tottenham Hotspur. Despite almost conceding a goal, there was no intent from the away team in the second half at all. A second goal was needed to bury the game, however, Spurs’s attack certainly lacked quality last night.
