TOTTENHAM BEAT FULHAM 2-0 AT THE TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR STADIUM – Son and James Maddison return Spurs to top of the Premier League
Tottenham returned to the top of the table after beating Fulham 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Ange Postecoglou set a Premier League record for the best start by a manager after nine games.
Goals from Heung-min Son (36) and James Maddison (54), the two players filling the void left by Harry Kane, secured the three points which knock Man City off top spot. Fulham failed to cope with Spurs’ relentless pressure from the front with Calvin Bassey losing possession on the edge of his box for both goals.
Postecoglou now has 23 points in his first nine games, which surpasses the previous best set by ex-Chelsea head coach Guus Hiddink and former Norwich boss Mike Walker (22)
