Fulham vs Tottenham - Premier League best and worst


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Wednesday 04 December 2013

Rene Meulensteen takes charge of Fulham for the first time on Wednesday, when they take on Tottenham, in a fixture which has provided its fair share of talking points in previous years:


Jermain Defoe


Last Meeting


Jermain Defoe struck twice in a game that Tottenham won comfortably, back in December 2012. After a goalless first half, Sandro opened the scoring with a long range shot which Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer should have saved. The hosts did not compete after that, and Defoe netted two goals in the space of six minutes to make the scoreline convincing.


Most Controversial Moment


In 2010, after Diomansy Kamara and Roman Pavlyuchenko scored to make the score 1-1, Tottenham scored the vital goal on 63 minutes, when Tom Huddlestone’s goal was allowed to stand, despite it initially being ruled out for offside. After a lengthy conversation between the officials, referee Mike Dean awarded the goal, much to Fulham’s frustration.


Best Comeback


Tottenham had looked set to take an impressive away victory in September 2002 when they lead 2-0 at half time thanks to Dean Richards’ header, and Teddy Sheringham’s low shot.


However, Fulham were a different side after the interval. Junichi Inamoto pulled one back, and two late goals gave them a dramatic victory from a thrilling game. First, Steed Malbranque converted a penalty, and then, in the fifth minute of stoppage time, Sylvain Legwinski grabbed the winner.


Head in Hands Moment


Harry Redknapp suffered his first defeat as Tottenham manager in November 2008, and goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes had a day to forget, gifting Fulham their first goal of a 2-1 victory when he inexplicably spilled a cross-shot by Simon Davies into the net when it should have been a routine piece of handling. Andrew Johnson made the game safe, although Fraizer Campbell pulled one back.
