City’s third place also owes a lot to the new failure of Tottenham who still let slip a victory that stretched out its arms (1-1).
This time it’s Fulham, who caught up with his late match of the 16th day, postponed due to the case of Covid at the promoted, who took advantage of it, with a scenario already seen several times this season but from which Spurs and their coach José Mourinho never seem to draw Lesson.
Tottenham managed to open the scoring on a very refined action: a diagonal opening of Pierre-Emile Hojberg to Sergio Reguilon on the left, whose center brushed at the far post had found the unstoppable header of Harry Kane for a goal with the help of the upright (1-0, 25th).
The advantage at the break was minimal, especially because of the good performance of Alphonse Areola in the cages of the Cottagers, who had intervened brilliantly in front of Son Heung-Min (19th, 23rd).
But when the locker room returned, rather than trying to drive home the point, Tottenham let Fulham get back into the game. The Spurs believed to kill all suspense in the 72nd when Son, decidedly very unhappy Wednesday night, found the post.
But in the next minute, a superb overflow from Ademola Lookman found Ivan Cavaleiro’s head (1-1, 74th) for a draw which is ultimately only justice.
