Fulham Vs. Tottenham Hotspur: 0-4 Halftime, Moussa Dembele Piles On The Misery

Fulham's first three goals were gifts from set pieces, but there's no taking away from Moussa Dembele on the fourth. Just before the stroke of halftime, the Belgian scored with an absolutely brilliant strike to give the Cottagers a 4-0 lead over Tottenham Hotspur. William Gallas and Benoit Assou-Ekotto defended very poorly on the goal, but Dembele still deserves all of the credit in the world for his great strike.

Fulham took a bit of a surprise lead in the 11th minute when Alan Hutton committed a foul in the box on Clint Dempsey, leading to a penalty that Danny Murphy converted. The game was then, very surprisingly, all but ended just three minutes later when Michael Dawson was shown a straight red card for pulling Dempsey's shirt in the box. Murphy converted, and the fat lady sung. Brede Hangeland added a third from a corner kick, and Dembele added some style points to Fulham's victory with a fourth.

Wait...it's only halftime? Oh. Spurs actually have to deal with another 45 minutes of this.
