Timo Werner miss sums up torrid Tottenham display at Fulham as Spurs miss chance to go fourth


Tottenham missed their chance to move into the top four with Timo Werner’s shocking miss summing up a torrid night.

Spurs could’ve leapfrogged fourth-place Aston Villa on Saturday evening, but instead suffered a 3-0 defeat at Craven Cottage, thanks to a Rodrigo Muniz double and Sasa Lukic.

Spurs’ players didn’t quite have the same success in front of goal and Werner won’t want to watch him fluffing a huge chance up again.

A delicious cross from Brennan Johsnon went across the box for the January signing, who was arriving in what seemed like the perfect moment at the far post to fire home.

But the ex-Chelsea man somehow fired wide of the post and into the stand behind the goal, epitomising what was a day to forget for Spurs.

Fulham’s Muniz, on the other hand, is in the form of his life.

After scoring just two goals on loan at Championship Middlesbrough last term, the 22-year-old has now netted seven in as many games, taking his total tally for goals in all competitions up to eight this term.

The Cottagers are 12th in the table and now sit one point off west London rivals Chelsea in 11th, albeit with the Blues having two games in hand on them.
