Claudio Ranieri says Fulham’s lack of experience cost them as Tottenham fired home at the death to earn a 2-1 win.
Fulham were leading after 17 minutes when Fernando Llorente put the ball in his own net, but Dele Alli put Spurs back on level terms before Harry Winks struck the winner in injury time.
The Cottagers sent a free-kick into the Spurs penalty area in the final stages of time added on, which the visitors cleared and then went up the other end and scored.
The Italian praised his side’s performance, but was exasperated by that decision. “Unbelievable,” he said. “Our first half was fantastic and we also had a penalty the referee didn’t see.
There was a big penalty on (Aleksandar) Mitrovic. “Second half we controlled the match very well in different ways. We gave a gift with the first goal and the second goal is unbelievable.
“We have a lot of free-kicks and I said to players, ‘Why do we have to put the ball in the box?’ “We lack experience. Calm, stay calm, keep possession, finish the match.
“We are alive, we continue to fight, the team showed fantastic performance. I can only say well done. But stay smart until the end. A lot of them the first time they play in the Premier League.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
