Cavaleiro earns Fulham draw at Spurs


Fulham celebrate equaliser
Ivan Cavaleiro’s equaliser against Tottenham was just his second goal of the season

Ivan Cavaleiro scored a late header to earn Premier League strugglers Fulham a hard-fought draw against Tottenham in their hastily rearranged London derby.

The Portuguese forward’s finish cancelled 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.

For all the complaints and complications surrounding the fixture, the quality and intensity from two sides at opposite ends of the league table was high at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
