A decidedly underwhelming performance by Spurs against Fulham. But Gareth Bale added to his already acquired superhero status by artfully deflecting a Rafael Van Der Vaart free kick past Mark Schwarzer.
Fulham on the other hand showed a lot of enterprise and skill. Some slick passing saw them coming close to equalizing but Michael Dawson effected a fine goal line save. Damien Duff, put through by Chris Baird’s fine pass also failed to find the target. They’re now firmly in the relegation zone. Spurs come back to a top four spot with this win.
