Tottenham were 3-1 winners away to Fulham Sunday, but if you were watching, you wouldn't quite believe that score.
Spurs were up 2-0 at halftime, and they had just two shots on target. Fulham completely dominated the second half but somehow only got one goal out of it thanks to some fantastic goalkeeping from the ageless Brad Friedel.
Luka Modric, who has been mediocre since his summer transfer saga, was pretty much invisible at Fulham except for giving away a stupid foul here and there.
Then, right at the death, Modric and Friedel switched roles when the keeper bobbled the ball right on the goal line, but Modric was there to keep it from going into the net and giving Fulham a deserved equaliser.
Minutes later, Jermaine Defoe, in basically his first kick of the game after being brought on in the 66th minute, scored a cruel goal to secure the three points for Tottenham.
Fulham had 31 shots and 13 on target to just nine and five for Tottenham. Fulham also had 11 corners to Tottenham's one.
Looking at the stats or even watching the game, it's hard to believe Tottenham won, but the summer signing of the 40-year-old Friedel is looking better and better by the day.
