A straightforward victory for Spurs, with Fulham offering very little in attack; the Cottagers don’t travel well, even on cross-London journeys. The Yids’ goals were scored by a couple of unfashionable Englishmen: Peter Crouch, who pounced from close range midway through the first half, and then David Bentley – you might recall the name. Bentley’s free-kick took a deflection of Bjorn Riise (John’s brother), putting Tottenham 2-0 up on 60 minutes. Game over.
Spurs remain in fourth, seven points behind third-placed Chelsea, with Fulham in ninth. Can Spurs hold on to fourth come the end of the season? If Aaron Lennon comes back from injury and plays like he did in the first third of the campaign, it’s possible though unlikely. As I’ve said before, I still suspect Liverpool will do just enough to maintain their big-four status.
