Tottenham Hotspur vs. Fulham: 6 Things We Learned

Younes Kaboul celebrates putting his Tottenham Hotspur team 3-1 up against Fulham.

Tottenham Hotspur crossed Fulham off their list of remaining games with a comfortable 3-1 win over their London neighbours.

Paulinho put Tottenham ahead with his first goal at White Hart Lane, tapping in from Christian Eriksen's sublime free-kick delivery.

Spurs' lead lasted barely a minute. Bursting forward, Steve Sidwell brushed off Paulinho's challenge and, after Zeki Fryers' attempted interception came back to him, finished calmly past the onrushing Hugo Lloris.

Three minutes into the second half, Harry Kane put the home side back in front. Wide right, Aaron Lennon came back into his left foot and curled a cross deep into the box for the striker to flick past David Stockdale.

The third was almost a replica of Spurs' first. Eriksen drove in another free-kick to the back-post and this time found Younes Kaboul who put the ball away.

An Eriksen handball gave Fulham a chance to pull a goal back, but Lloris saved Sidwell's resulting penalty and was on hand to keep out several late attempts from the Cottagers.

Defeat means Fulham missed their chance to overtake Norwich and escape the bottom three. Spurs, meanwhile, have kept touch with Arsenal and Everton above them in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
