Tottenham tops Fulham to extend unbeaten streak

Tottenham stretched its unbeaten streak to 1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

An early goal from Gareth Bale was followed by Aaron Lennon's first goal of the season in first-half stoppage time to put Spurs up two goals at halftime.

But after an own goal from Younes Kaboul in the 57th minute pulled Fulham to within a goal, the visitors survived a late spell of pressure and got a goal at the final whistle from Jermain Defoe to seal the win.

Fulham sits one point above the relegation zone with the loss while Tottenham resides in fifth place.

Lennon helped create the opening goal by sending a low cross through the face of the net that goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer tipped into the path of Bale at the back post. He then smashed a shot from a tight angle into a crowd and the ball deflected off a Fulham defender and went into the net.

Tottenham's second goal arrived in first-half stoppage time when Lennon skipped past defender Chris Baird and found the bottom right corner of the net with a well-placed shot.

The lead was reduced to 2-1 when Spurs defender Ledley King headed a cross off the back of Kaboul and into the net, while Fulham was a bit unlucky not to equalize late in the match.

Spurs defender Kyle Walker appeared to handle the ball inside his own area during a scramble in front of goal and Luka Modric was on hand to clear a late shot off the goal line.

Defoe then scored on the counter attack just before full time to cap the win.
