Fulham 2:1 Tottenham

Fulham put an end to the magical streak of Tottenham and their new manager Harry Rednapp. Tottenham came to Craven Cottage boasting a six game unbeaten streak in all competitions, but Simon Davies and Andy Johnson scored one goal apiece to give the Whites teh win before a capactiy crowd at Craven Cottage.

Roy Hodgson started his normal 4-4-2, but American Clint Dempsey grabbed a start for the Whites, replacing Zoltan Gera in the midfield. Davies shifted to the left side of midfield as Dempsey slotted into the right.

The win moved Fulham to 9th in the league and the loss dropped Tottenham back into the relegation zone. But the table is still quite tight, with just seven points separating 7th place Everton (18 points) and last place West Brom (11 points).

Next week, Fulham will try to keep their winning form as they travel to Anfield to face the second place Liverpool. Fulham's rather disasterous away form is not likely to help, but the Whites are playing solid football.
