Old boys Berbatov, Jol come back to haunt Spurs as Fulham win 1-0
LONDON (AFP) - A goal from former player Dimitar Berbatov saw Tottenham Hotspur sink to a third straight defeat on Sunday, as they lost 1-0 to a Fulham side who earned a rare away win in the Premier League.
Victory would have moved Andre Villas-Boas' side to within two points of second-place Manchester City, but they were unable to find a way past Fulham's excellent goalkeeper, Mark Schwarzer.
Tottenham now find themselves just four points ahead of north London rivals Arsenal, who have a game in hand, in the scramble for Champions League qualification places.
Berbatov's goal turned out to be just enough for Fulham - managed by former Tottenham coach Martin Jol - to taste victory away from Craven Cottage for only the third time in league action this season.
