Tottenham kept its small hopes of a top-four finish alive with a 3-1 win over Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.
Spurs remained sixth in the standings but cut their deficit to fourth-place Arsenal to four points after goals from Paulinho, Harry Kane and Younes Kaboul ended relegation-threatened Fulham's run of two consecutive wins. The Gunners have played one game less.
Paulinho put Tottenham ahead with a simple tap-in after Christian Eriksen's free kick beat the Fulham defense but Steve Sidwell equalized just two minutes later. Kane restored Tottenham's lead after the interval with a header from Aaron Lennon's cross and Kaboul made it 3-1 as he turned home another good free kick from Eriksen.
Sidwell missed a penalty following Eriksen's handball in the area 15 minutes from time.
