He was there when it mattered to deflect Clint Dempsey’s header off the line in the second amazing scramble in added time.
“It was my duty during free-kicks and corners to be on the second post and thankfully I managed to clear the ball,” he told the Spurs website. “It was very important. Before that, Brad saved brilliantly and after, Jermain scored to win the game.
“It’s a nice achievement to play 100 games in the Premier League and we won, that’s the main thing.
“It was a hard game, especially in the second half. In the first half we played really well, we didn’t allow Fulham to play their game.
“In the second half Fulham played really well but in the end we managed to survive and not concede a second goal. That was unbelievable!
“Then we scored the third goal. It’s always good to win against Fulham on their pitch because it is always such a difficult game.”
