Tottenham Hotspur clinched all three points against Fulham yesterday in the Premier League, but it wasn’t all smiles come the final whistle.

Spurs went one nil down through a strange Llorente own goal in the first half, before the big Spaniard missed a whole host of chances in the second.

Dele Alli drew his side level in the 51st minute, with Tottenham knocking on the door for a winner for the remainder of the match with little luck.

It took until the 93rd minute for Spurs to finally find a way through, when Harry Winks popped up as an unlikely source of a last minute headed winner.

Spurs were without Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, Heung Min Son, and Mousa Sissoko for the London derby, and unfortunately, Dele Alli was added to that injury list just before the final whistle.

The midfielder went down clutching his hamstring and was forced to make way.

Pochettino said (Football London): “You know very well the action because you have a lot of experience in football. We need to assess him in the next few days but the hamstring is a muscle that you need to be careful with, the mechanism of the injury. Of course we need to assess in the next few days, but of course it doesn’t look great.

“On the pitch, I think we all agree that when you see him put his hand on his hamstring it’s a situation where you feel…it’s not great to see that.”
