There were two intriguing Premier League fixtures to get our teeth into on Wednesday evening.


Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Fulham

Scorers: Kane 25′; Cavaleiro 77′

Fulham came from behind to earn a respectable point against a subdued Tottenham Hotspur side.

Harry Kane had powered Spurs in front with a brilliant diving header 25 minutes into the game and should have wrapped things up when Son Heung-min struck the post when one-on-one with Alphonse Areola in the second half.

However, the visitors regrouped and got their deserved equaliser through Ivan Cavaleiro 13 minutes from time.

Ademola Lookman came off the bench to whip in a cross onto the head of the Fulham forward who directed the ball past Hugo Lloris.

It was another poor showing from José Mourinho’s side – who missed out on the chance to move into the top four.

Manchester City 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion

Scorers: Foden 45′

Manchester City have moved up to third in the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Roger Sánchez was in inspired form to deny Kevin De Bruyne on two occasions in the first half before Phil Foden found the breakthrough just before the interval.

The 20-year-old cut inside from the left-hand side to squeeze a shot home at the near post with his right foot.

Bernardo Silva hit the bar as Pep Guardiola’s side sought to extend their lead but found goalscoring opportunities in short supply in the second half as a spirited Seagulls side held their own without really threatening an equaliser.

The hosts could’ve made the result comfortable in stoppage time but Raheem Sterling skied his penalty.

However – it’s a fourth straight league win as they move to just four points behind league leaders Manchester United.
