Jan, 14th 2021 – Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho was left fuming after his side threw away a one-nil lead to draw one all against league strugglers Fulham Ivan Cavaleiro scored a late header to earn Fulham a hard-fought draw in their hastily rearranged London derby.
The Portuguese forward’s finish canceled out Harry Kane’s first-half diving header and came just minutes after Son Heung-min hit the post in search of Spurs’ second.
Cavaleiro sealed a remarkable turnaround for a side whose manager Scott Parker said it was “scandalous” to be given just two days’ notice to face Jose Mourinho’s men after Spurs’ game at Aston Villa was postponed because of a Covid-19 outbreak in the Villa camp.
Tottenham boss Mourinho had little sympathy for the visitors as the derby itself was a rearranged fixture, having been called off three hours before kick-off when originally scheduled on 30 December.
At Etihad Stadium Manchester City earned a hard-fought one-nil win over Brighton. Phil Foden got the all-important goal before the break. City was however unlucky in getting the second of the game but held on for the three points which took them third on the table.
City has one match in hand and if they win, it will take them to second, two points behind leaders Manchester United.
