Tottenham Hotspur secured a 2-0 victory over Fulham in their English Premier League face-off, with Calvin Bassey’s unfortunate errors causing a dent in the Cottagers’ performance, Soccernet.ng reports.
Bassey’s blunders led to both goals, handing the hosts a crucial win and catapulting them to the top of the EPL standings.
In the 36th minute, Bassey’s misplaced pass in a dangerous area gifted the ball to the alert Spurs, who swiftly capitalised as Heung-min Son found the net with a composed finish past the goalkeeper.
Despite his left-footed stance, Bassey’s unease in playing out from the back persisted, leaving the Spurs players free to exploit his misplaced passes.
This uneasiness ultimately contributed to the second goal, allowing the impressive James Maddison to seal the victory for Tottenham in the 54th minute.
Although Alex Iwobi’s introduction in the second half aimed to boost Fulham’s performance, it failed to alter the course of the game as the hosts comfortably secured the win.

With this crucial win, Spurs currently hold the top spot in the EPL standings, two points ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal.
In contrast, Fulham finds themselves in the 13th position, trailing by 12 points.
