Spurs condemned Fulham to a second straight defeat in the Premier League, losing 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs condemned Fulham to a second straight defeat in the Premier League, losing 3-1 at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

Lucas Moura opened the scoring just before the break before Aleksandar Mitrović pulled one back for the visitors after half-time.

Despite a spirited second-half display from Fulham, Spurs scored two more through two of England’s World Cup heroes, Kieran Trippier and Harry Kane.

Slaviša Jokanović made three changes to the side that lost to Crystal Palace on the opening weekend with Timothy Fosu-Mensah and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa making their debut’s, while Aboubakar Kamara also returned to the starting line-up in place of Cyrus Christie, Kevin McDonald and André Schürrle.

Mauricio Pochettino made just two changes to his starting XI with Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko dropping to the bench with Toby Alderweireld and Trippier replacing them.

The first real chance of the game fell to Spurs when Ben Davies crossed the ball from the left, but Moura couldn’t quite guide his header and it fell wide of the back post.

With quarter of an hour gone, Kane appealed to referee Anthony Taylor for a penalty but his calls were waived away as there didn’t appear to be much contact between the Spurs forward and Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Five minutes later, after a nice ball from Kamara and some interlinking with Tom Cairney, Ryan Sessegnon found himself in the Spurs penalty area but his shot from three yards was blocked for a Fulham corner.

In the 28th minute Cairney went close when he took Kamara’s pass first time on the edge of the box but Hugo Lloris got down to keep it out.

Christian Eriksen forced a great save from Fabri in the 34th minute when the Dane’s free-kick almost crept in at the near post but the Fulham ‘keeper did well to get down quickly.

After a great ball from Jean Michael Seri, Sessegnon found himself with a one-on-one situation with Lloris but he struggled to get the ball under control and slammed his effort into the Spurs goalkeeper in the 39th minute.

Just one minute later Spurs were up the other end and after three or four good blocks, Eriksen eventually fired his effort over the bar, much to the relief of the travelling support

Moura opened the scoring in the 43rd minute after Calum Chambers’ clearance fell to the forward inside the box and he bent it into the top corner.

It took just two minutes of second-half football for Fulham to come close, Mitrović showed great strength to hold off the Spurs defence before his shot rifled off the far post.

Barely a minute later Dele Alli had his volley punched high into the Wembley sky after a really good reflex save from Fabri.

Fulham drew level in the 52nd minute when Joe Bryan’s cross found Sessegnon and he tapped it back for Mitrović to head home.

Former Fulham midfielder Mousa Dembélé came on for Davinson Sanchez in the 64th minute.

Two minutes later Maxime Le Marchand was forced into making a superb block from Alli’s shot, Fabri had come out to tip the cross away but Alli picked up the rebound and the Frenchman prevented a certain goal.

With 20 minutes to go Kane got his foot to a great cross, but his effort fired off the cross-bar.

Fulham made their first change in the 73rd minute with Stefan Johansen replacing Cairney, while Spurs brought on Erik Lamela for Eric Dier.

Tottenham regained the lead in the 75th minute with a well struck Kieran Tripper free-kick which hit the top right-hand corner of the goal.

Kane scored Spurs’ third when Anguissa was dispossessed high up the pitch, the home side broke through Lamela and the England captain kept his cool to place it in the bottom left-hand corner of the goal.

With five minutes to go Fulham brought on Christie in place of Bryan at left-back and then three minutes later Schürrle came on for Fosu-Mensah.

In added time Lamela came close to a fourth for Spurs but Fabri managed to block his effort from two yards out in the final play of the game.
