Tottenham beats Fulham 2-1 in Premier League

??Goals from Vlad Chiriches and Lewis Holtby ended Tottenham’s

four match winless run in the Premier League and eased the pressure

on under-fire manager Andre Villas-Boas as Spurs won 2-1 at Fulham

on Wednesday.

The result left Fulham in 18th place, three points from safety

from relegation.

Holtby scored the winner in the 82nd minute with a curled shot

from 20 meters after Chiriches equalized with a long-range volley.

Ashkan Dejagah had put the hosts in front from Dimitar Berbatov’s

astute through-ball.

Fulham slipped to its sixth consecutive league defeat as new

manager Rene Meulensteen failed to start his reign on a positive

note.
