Fulham vs. Tottenham: Player Ratings from Spurs' 3-0 Win at Craven Cottage

For nearly the first hour of this match, you could be forgiven for thinking Tottenham's visit to Fulham on Saturday afternoon would end in a stalemate.

After all, both teams had combined for just two shots on goal, and neither side was taking the chances on offense they needed to.

But when Sandro took the ball into Fulham's half in the 55th minute and rocketed a shot from nearly 40 yards out, it looked as though it took Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer for a surprise.

The bigger surprise is that Schwarzer missed volleying the shot. It banked off the left post and broke the stalemate.

After that, the proverbial floodgates opened, and Fulham couldn't get them shut.

Jermain Defoe scored two more goals in the final half-hour to give him four in the last three matches. Visiting Tottenham pulled up to fourth in the league table.

Tottenham may have captured a much-needed victory away from White Hart Lane, and they're in the driver's seat for a Champions League place next season but how did the individuals grade out?

Check out my ratings, and let me know if you agree.
