Harry Winks heads home at the last for Spurs to break Fulham hearts
Who needs Harry Kane when you have got Harry Winks? The start of Tottenham’s period without their talismanic centre-forward and, indeed, Son Heung-min, too, looked set to end in frustration as Fernando Llorente – the player entrusted with the main striking role – endured a nightmarish afternoon.
Llorente scored an own goal at one end and missed two good chances at the other as Spurs laboured to find their attacking groove. Dele Alli had equalised for them early in the second half but he would be forced off with a hamstring injury in the 86th minute – compounding the sense that this would not be Spurs’s day.
