EPL: Tottenham Hotspur squander chance to move into top four with draw against Fulham

Portuguese forward Ivan Cavaleiro has rescued a precious point for an impressive Fulham, as they came from behind to draw 1-1 at Tottenham Hotspur.

Fulham started brightly with long spells of possession, but Spurs took the lead in the 25th minute. A long ball from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg found Sergio Reguilon down the left and he put in a perfectly weighted cross, which Harry Kane dived to head in for his 11th league goal of the season.

Scott Parker's side resumed the second half like they began the first, pressing and keeping hold of the ball. They made their breakthrough in the 74th minute, when Cavaleiro rose highest to head in a cross from Ademola Lookman.

Looking tired and short of ideas, Spurs failed to retake the lead and the draw left them sixth in the standings, six points off the top. Fulham remained in the bottom three, but are only two points from the safety zone.

Manchester City have moved to within four points of the Premier League summit, as Phil Foden's goal earned them a nervy 1-0 victory over struggling Brighton.

On a sodden night at the Etihad Stadium, Foden's clinical finish just before halftime proved enough for City to claim a fourth successive league win, but it was far from comfortable.

City had chances in the second half to stretch their lead, with keeper Robert Sanchez and the woodwork coming to Brighton's rescue, but the visitors finished strongly.

The hosts could have eased the tension in stoppage time, but substitute Raheem Sterling lashed a penalty over the crossbar.

City held on to move into the top four with 32 points from 16 games, four behind leaders Manchester United and one behind champions Liverpool, but playing one match less.
