Tottenham 2-0 Fulham Reaction

Fulham captain Tim Ream speaking to Sky Sports: “I thought in some moments we did some good things, got into their box quite a few times. At the end of the day the goals we give away are identical. Players at this level will punish you if you give the ball away in those areas.

“In the first half we sat off them a little bit too much. In the second half we ramped the pressure up a bit but in the end we come away with nothing.

On what went wrong for the Tottenham goals: “It’s hard to say. Calvin [Bassey] has a tough job playing on the right side as a left footer, not a position he is used to but we have worked on it all week.These things happen. It is up to all of us to rectify.

“Overall it was very disciplined from us, which was something we spoke about going into the game. Maybe unfortunate to not score one or two and then we are talking about a different result.

Maddison on scoring first home goal…

He told Sky Sports: “I’m really happy. All my goal contributions so far this season have been away from home, I keep seeing stats pop up about it. 

“It’s nice to get off the mark here in a convincing performance, solid win, that puts us back to the top of the table. 

“It felt a little bit disjointed, Fulham didn’t really press and our centre-backs were able to walk up the pitch with the ball almost. We expected them to press a little bit higher. 

“I started dropping deeper and was more involved in the build-up, we got a little bit more success that way.”
