Tottenham Hotspur Beats Fulham

Tottenham striker Harry Kane said a team meeting helped them get back on track with a narrow win at Fulham.

The England captain scored the only goal with a sweet strike into the bottom corner from just outside the box, to equal Jimmy Greaves’ record as Spurs’ all-time top scorer with 266 goals.

It was only Spurs’ second Premier League win in six games and came after back-to-back losses against Arsenal and Manchester City.

They are back to within three points of the Champions League places after only a second league clean sheet since October.

“We are a little bit behind where we want to be but tonight was important,” said Kane, who played despite having an illness.

“We had a good talk amongst ourselves, just to get back to what we are good at, clean sheets, being compact and hard to break down. Then we know we will have a chance to score and have players who can do that.

“It was a really important win for us, especially after the last couple of games, to get back to winning ways.”

Boss Antonio Conte, whose future is uncertain, said: “I had a good answer from my players. I asked them for the solidity of last season and the will and desire to fight and to be resilient.

“We showed when you play as a team it is difficult to play against us. Today has to be a starting point for us to give everything then we will see what happens at the end.”

Kane could have broken the record in the second half but his close-range header was tipped over well by Bernd Leno.
