Babel - F - Fulham

Ryan Babel was put straight into the starting XI but his debut for Fulham was spoiled as Tottenham would score on the final kick of the game in a 1-2 loss.

Everything was setting up for a special day at Craven Cottage. The crowd was vocal, Babel showed some flash when on the ball and Fulham would go ahead first on 17 minutes. Jean Michael Seri sent a corner into the area and the Cottagers were the recipients of an own goal by Fernando Llorente. It was as good a first half as one could have hoped for Claudio Ranieri, but the intensity began to wane in the second half, and Spurs would get an equalizer in the 51st minute. Ryan Sessegnon, who made way for Babel in the XI, came on as an impact sub, but there was no impact to be had. Thinking a draw was imminent perhaps a moment too soon, Fulham's day was ruined by conceding a last-second winner.

Tottenham did not make it look pretty, but were able to score on the final touch of the game with a goal from Harry Winks to edge Fulham, 1-2.

It's never too surprising for a man named Harry to save the day for Spurs, but instead of the injured Kane, it was Winks who provided the heroics. Fulham were pesky all evening and took an early lead courtesy of a Fernando Llorente own goal. The Spanish striker would struggle as Kane's replacement, missing a couple of big chances in front of goal. Tottenham would finally level the score six minutes into the second half, when Christian Eriksen supplied his typical accurate ball into the area for Dele Alli to head home. Bad news would hit late, when Alli was injured and left Spurs a man short as he was receiving treatment. With seconds left in stoppage time, Spurs made one final push and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou crossed one in from the left to find Winks for the diving header. The club escaped happily with three points but the match certainly shed light on the need for Daniel Levy to do some transfer shopping.

After a rocky patch, Manchester City makes it four wins on the bounce after beating Huddersfield to the tune of a 3-0 scoreline.

Playing their first match without David Wagner at the helm, Huddersfield came in and gave everything that they had. Unfortunately, when you're at the bottom of the league, everything you have can't hold up versus City. Danilo would open the scoring in the 18th minute but overall, Huddersfield was able to hold City in check in the first half due to an organized defensive plan. But as they do, after the half, City came out and quickly put this one to bed. Leroy Sane would set up Raheem Sterling in the 54th minutes only to have Sergio Aguero set him up in the 56th minute. Huddersfield would have their chances once Steve Mounie was brought on but he skied the best chance wide of the net with his final touch of the match. City will march on, waiting for Liverpool to slip up, while Huddersfield with count their days until relegation.

Mauricio Sarri will be even more eager to bring in a new forward after his Blues were impotent at the Emirates.

The Blues dominated possession against Arsenal but could only muster a single shot on target and no goals. The Gunners are no pushovers at home but if the Blues want to stay in the top four then they will need to get Gonzalo Higuain, or a similarity talented forward, into the fold ASAP to give Eden Hazard the foil he needs to return to the wide role he is most effective in.

Unai Emery's side, under pressure after a string of mediocre performances, came through with a massive win over top four rival Chelsea on Saturday. Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny scored the goals and the Gunners held the Blues to a single shot on target despite conceding the majority of possession.

Sean Dyche is slowly righting the ship at Turf Moor as Burnley picked up a solid road point at Vicarage Road.

While Watford will be disappointed in dropping two points against Burnley, perhaps they shouldn't be. The draw comes on the heels of three consecutive wins for the Clarets who seem to be figuring things out after a miserable first half of the season. The nil-nil draw also marks the second clean sheet in their past four league matches making Burnley defenders fantasy-relevant again.

Watford enjoyed a slight edge in possession and shots on target but couldn't do much with it as they and Burnley drew 0-0.

The Hornets are a tough side to figure. Their last loss to a non-big six club came on December 1st. While they didn't lose to Burnley,a home draw with no goals feels like and opportunity lost to push forward in the table. For fantasy managers, the lack of consistency is maddening when trying to get a handle on expectations for Hornets players.
