Tottenham Hotspur had prepared to meet Aston Villa this evening, but following the closure of their training ground after a Covid outbreak, the Premier League decided to send Scott Parker into a meltdown as they rearranged our game with Fulham.
It was a lively start and in terms of proper efforts at goal, it was pretty much one-way traffic, but Spurs were made to wait for the opener. It finally came in the 25th minute as Harry Kane (predictably) gave us the advantage with a diving header from a Sergio Reguilon delivery.
Fulham did then create some efforts, but Hugo Lloris wasn’t really troubled and sadly when our further chances came, we also wasted them.
1-0 at the break.
The second half seemed to be a more level and end to end affair and with 20 minutes to go Fulham would’ve felt unlucky to not have got on the scoresheet, but the Spurs players were blocking brilliantly. Sonny had a great chance to kill the game off but his effort bounced back off the post.
Shortly after that Fulham were on level terms and we really only had ourselves to blame.
It was certainly a tense and nervy affair and the visitors felt like they were on top for a bit but we almost had the breakthrough at the death but Sonny was fractionally offside and the goal was scrubbed out.
1-1 and not the result we wanted.
