Fulham vs Tottenham Breakdown
Harry Winks scored the stoppage-time winning goal as Tottenham came from behind to inflict a crushing 2—1 defeat on Fulham. He applied the finishing touch to a smooth Georges-Kevin Nkoudou cross in the third minute of extra time.
The talk ahead of kick-off concerned Tottenham’s ability to cope without both players Kane and Son for the first time in 132 Premier League games. It was very evident early on that it would take some time for Tottenham to adjust.
Fernando Llorente handed Fulham the lead with an own goal inside 16 minutes! The look on his face was priceless 😀
Llorente had the chance to atone for his mistake at 24 minutes, but failed to make clear contact with Jan Vertonghen’s deep cross.
Fulham looked to have secured a vital point in their battle, but Winks’ first goal since November 2016 saw the Spurs demolish the side managed by Claudio Ranieri.
The Tottenham Spurs were labored and short of ideas as Fulham laid siege to their goal. They were fortunate just to reach the interval with only a one-goal deficit.
After the close calls, Tottenham kicked itself into gear and took just six minutes after the second half to erase Fulham’s lead. Dele Alli brought Tottenham the comeback six minutes into the second half. Right before he was forced off the field with a hamstring injury later on in the game.
Fulham looked to have earned a crucial point towards their survival bid, but it was cruelly snatched away as Nkoudou’s cross was expertly dispatched by Harry Winks with only seconds remaining. The hosts were left with no time to respond.
Man of the match: Harry Winks
“The performance was solid, although maybe not great. Fulham are a team who needed to win and we struggled a little bit in the first half, because from set-pieces, they work so hard. After Manchester United, it was a tough week for us because there were some negative bits around the team, but we turned it into a positive today.” — Mauricio Pochettino
With Kane and Son missing Spurs needed someone to step up to the plate when it mattered most and Winks proved to be that man. An assured midfield performance was capped in the most dramatic circumstances as he finished off the move he initiated, driving into the area to head Spurs back to winning ways with only his second goal for the club.
