Premier League—Craven Cottage, London

 

FULHAM 1-2 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Goals: Dejagah 57; Chiriches 73, Holtby 82

 

Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to win 2-1 at Fulham in a thrilling London derby at Craven Cottage on Wednesday.

Iranian winger Ashkan Dejagah had given the home side the lead in what was Rene Meulensteen's first game in charge, but the tie turned around in the final quarter.

Goals from Vlad Chiriches and a stunning late strike from substitute Lewis Holtby were enough to earn Spurs all three points, though Meulensteen will have been encouraged by his new team's performance.

Pajtim Kasami almost levelled things up with the last kick of the match, but saw his effort cannon off the post.
