Tottenham hosted Fulham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they look to win in the London Derby. Spurs were a shining star in the game and took the lead in the 40th minute when Pierre-Emile Højbjerg scored with a low shot. Antonio Conte’s side had a narrow one-goal lead before half-time.
Harry Kane doubled Spurs’ advantage in the 75th minute. However, Fulham scored a final consolation goal just eight minutes later thanks to a superb finish from Aleksandar Mitrovic. At the end of the match, Tottenham won 2-1 at home.
Let’s take a look at how each of the Tottenham Hotspur players performed against knockoffs.

The French keeper made some solid saves from the back but would be disappointed with a late conceded goal that would dash his hopes of a clean sheet.
CB: Christian Romero — 7.5/10
The Argentine genius kept things clean at the back and was a threat at the other end of the pitch.
CB: Eric Dier — 6.5/10
Dell made a few key interceptions in his own half and his pass was accurate.
CB: Clement Lenglet – 6.5/10
