Tottenham player ratings vs Fulham: Harry Kane leads from front as Eric Dier stands tall at back

Harry Kane moved level with Jimmy Greaves as Tottenham's all-time top scorer as his 266th goal for the club earned a 1-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The England captain's fine finish in first-half stoppage time settled an even contest and moved Spurs to within five points of fourth place, albeit having played a game more than Newcastle and Manchester United.

Dan Kilpatrick was at Craven Cottage to rate the Spurs players...

Hugo Lloris 7

Got behind a number of Fulham efforts in a busy first half and made a smart late save as Fulham pushed for an equaliser.

Cristian Romero 7

Sloppy on the ball in the opening minutes but grew into the game. Booked for a high foot on Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Eric Dier 8

Relished the physical battle with Mitrovic and stood up well to the Serb.

Ben Davies 7

Steady defensively and set up Kane for a fine chance in the second half with a header across goal.

Emerson Royal 7

Tested Bernd Leno in the first half as he eyed another goal and was committed at the back.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 6

Initially uncomfortable in the face of Fulham's press but more assured in the second half when Spurs had settled.

Rodrigo Bentancur 7

Composed on the ball and full of energy. Makes a huge difference to this side.

Ivan Perisic 5

Offered little in another subdued performance.

Dejan Kulusevski 7

Full of clever touches and purposeful runs.


Heung-min Son 5

Fittingly got the assist for Kane's record-equalling goal but was largely a passenger again, and lucky to avoid a red card for a studs-up challenge on Kenny Tete.

Harry Kane 8

Hauled Spurs ahead with a magnificent finish to make history and nearly secured the outright record, only for Bernd Leno to save his header.


Richarlison (Son 75') 6

Energetic but not enough time to make a real impression.

Yves Bissouna (Kulusevski 90') N/A
