Tottenham player ratings: three score 7/10 and one sublime 9/10 in ‘exciting’ Fulham win
Tottenham returned to the summit of the Premier League with a comfortable 2-0 win over London rivals Fulham. Skipper Son Hueng-min as has been the case this season opened the scoring after being played through by Richarlison.
The South Korean took a touch to beat his man before planting the ball beyond Bernd Leno. Spurs dominated the game and should have gone into the break with a heavy headline.
That was soon corrected in the seond first half as James Maddison scored his first home goal and took his tally of goal contributions to eight in nine games to give the home side the security they so much craved.
Fulham have not won any of their last four London derbies and have one win from 17 league games against Tottenham and in all honesty just did not look like causing an upset.
Former Chelsea forward Willian was perhaps their brightest spot and every now and then they will attempt a half-hearted press but Tottenham deserved their goals and should have put the game to bed as early as the first half.
So many stars springing up under Ange Postecoglou and Destiny Odogie reminded everyone why he’s been talked about as the next big thing in Italian football. He was comfortable dropping in midfield to help the team retain possession and was a goal threat whenever he attacked.
Maddison, Son and even Riharlison all look to be enjoying their game under the Australian manager and the feeling in the atmosphere is that which has forgotten the last days of Antonio Conte.
In what was a really comfortable night for the home side- here is how we rated every Tottenham player out there today.
