Fulham end losing run, Spurs record another away win

Fulham's Dimitar Berbatov sends Villa's keeper Brand Guzman to put the home side 2-0 up

Goals from Steve Sidwell and Dimitar Berbatov helped Fulham end a six-match losing streak with a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Sidwell struck from a tight angle on 21 minutes and Berbatov rolled in a cheeky penalty on the half hour as Fulham dominated against disappointing Villa.

Fulham, who sacked manager Martin Jol last week and replaced him with fellow Dutchman Rene Meulensteen, moved to 13 points alongside West Ham United who are one place above the relegation zone owing to a superior goal difference.

Later on Sunday leaders Arsenal take on in-form Everton looking to stretch their advantage to seven points over Liverpool.

In yesterdays evening game Spurs recovered from an early strike by Sunderland’s England winger Adam Johnson with goals from Brazil midfielder Paulinho and an own goal by John O’Shea, to win at the Stadium of Light.

It was their second win in four days and eased the pressure on manager Andre Villas Boas. “That’s a massive result for us,” said defender Michael Dawson. “That was a good performance and we showed our spirit and the unity we have in our team.”
