Tottenham Hotspur clinched a last minute victory this evening, beating Fulham 2-1 with the latest of headers from academy man Harry Winks.
Spurs were without Harry Kane, Heung Min Son, and Lucas Moura, and boy did it show.
Fernando Llorente, brought in to lead the line, scored a calamitous own goal in the first half, before missing a whole host of chances in the second.
The Spaniards poor performance really highlighted the calibre of player Spurs are missing in Harry Kane, and fans will be dying to get him back as soon as possible.
Despite grabbing all three points, Tottenham did have some more bad news towards the end of the game today, as Dele Alli went down clutching his hamstring.
The midfielder was treated on the side lines for several minutes before walking back to the bench unassisted, eventually being replaced by Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.
Alli then took his place on the bench, rather than exiting down the tunnel as many players would when picking up a bad injury.
The fact that the medical team didn’t want to treat him immediately, and keep the injury warm, suggests that it isn’t a tear or anything too serious.
Hopefully Alli won’t be out for more than a game or two. Fingers crossed.
