EPL: Kane header not enough for Spurs; Foden fires Man City to third



England striker, Harry Kane scored a header for Tottenham Hotspur but they were held to a 1-1 draw by Fulham in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

Super Eagles defender, Ola Aina was also in action for Fulham and was of help as his side fought back to pick a point home from the London clash.

Spurs were cruising and thought they would take all three points from the game but Ademola Lookman assisted Ivan Cavaleiro to score the leveler on 74 minutes.

Late on, Sergio Reguilion thought he had won it for Tottenham as he turned in Son Heung-min’s cross but the goal was immediately ruled out with Son having been offside.

A win could have taken Tottenham to third on the table, but the draw keeps them on sixth. For Fulham, the hard-fought point leaves them on 18th.
