Fulham vs. Tottenham Hotspur: 6 Things We Learned

The masked assassin: Vlad Chiriches helped kill off Fulham's hopes of a first win under Rene Meulensteen with his equaliser in Tottenham's 2-1 win over Fulham.

Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to beat Rene Meulensteen's Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night.

In an action-packed encounter, Ashkan Dejagah gave the newly-appointed Dutchman's side the lead 10 minutes into the second half.

Fulham were forced further and further back afterwards. It led to a poorly struck Kyle Walker corner on the 73rd minute going out to Tottenham defender Vlad Chiriches who equalised with a finely struck long-range half-volley into the bottom corner.

Just under 10 minutes later, Lewis Holtby sealed Spurs' win with a daring effort from 20 yards having stolen the ball off the toes of his own teammate Andros Townsend.

Meulensteen will be pleased with the effort of his players. He will also be wondering what might have been on a night when Spurs struggled to break down his team before Chiriches' well-taken but somewhat fortunate goal.

His counterpart Andre Villas-Boas will be grateful to see his team return to winning ways after going over a month without a Premier League win.
