Tottenham 0-0 Fulham Highlights

Tottenham and Fulham played out a draw in a tame London derby that illustrated Spurs’s need for another striker.


Aaron Lennon had the hosts’ best chance but saw his close-range effort well saved by Cottagers keeper Mark Schwarzer after 30 minutes.

Clint Dempsey came close with a spectacular overhead-kick from 20-yards but it was kept out by Heurelho Gomes.

The Brazilian keeper then did well to save at the feet of Andy Johnson after he got behind his marker Ledley King.

Gomes, who spilled Simon Davies’s cross over his own goal-line in the corresponding fixture showed how much he has improved since that costly fumble.

The often beleaguered keeper was in fine form for Spurs in what turned out to be a cagey London derby.
