Check out all the goals as Eriksen-inspired Tottenham defeat Fulham

Felix Magath’s side are still in the relegation zone after failing to beat Spurs today.

TOTTENHAM SECURED AN ultimately comfortable 3-1 victory over Fulham in today’s early Premier League game.

Spurs took the lead after Paulinho converted Christian Eriksen’s beautifully flighted free kick, but Fulham equalised just over a minute later.

Steve Sidwell burst through an all-too-timid Tottenham defence before chipping the ball over Hugo Lloris and into the net.

Harry Kane then nodded home Aaron Lennon’s inch-perfect cross to restore Spurs’ advantage early in the second half, before Younes Kaboul  got on the end of another Eriksen set piece to make it 3-1.

Sidwell then missed a penalty on 76 minutes, after Eriksen deliberately handballed in the box, as Tottenham hung on for a win.

Meanwhile, Sandro tweeted the following passive-aggressive comments today.
