TOM'S THE DRIVING FORCE

Juande Ramos described Tom Huddlestone's two-goal display as 'magnificent' after our five-star display against Fulham on Boxing Day.

Juande Ramos described Tom Huddlestone's two-goal display as 'magnificent' after our five-star display against Fulham on Boxing Day.

The midfielder was at his best as the Cottagers were overrun 5-1 in the Barclays Premier League encounter at the Lane.

Tom struck two fine goals from distance - one with his left foot, one with his right - before setting up the fifth goal for Jermain Defoe in injury time.

Robbie Keane also netted twice - taking him to the century mark in career Premier League goals - as we ran out comfortable winners. Fulham would have hoped to come back when they made it 2-1 on the hour, but that hope only lasted a minute as Keano pounced for his second to make it 3-1.

But the afternoon belonged to Tom and Head Coach Juande said: "He was magnificent. He showed great ball control. It was a very good performance and he participated a lot in the match."

Asked if it was the perfect performance, Juande added: "No game can be perfect - that's impossible.

"The players made a real effort to get the right result but there is always something you can improve and this time, it would have been to keep a clean sheet.

"Our intention is always to play as intensely as possible to get the victory.

"We're really happy with the results we've achieved so far and the fact we've moved up the table."

Why should the excitement stop just because the match is over? Details of Poker tournaments that follow every Tottenham Hotspur game are available by clickingHERE...
