Fulham captain Danny Murphy scored twice from the spot as Fulham dumped Tottenham out of the cup with a 4-0 win at Craven Cottage and said it was nice to get one over on their London rivals.

Spurs have held the Indian sign over Fulham in recent years, but Murphy’s brace of spot-kicks, Michael Dawson’s sending off for Tottenham, and further goals from Brede Hangeland and Moussa Dembele made it an afternoon to remember for the Cottagers.

“I think we started brightly, on the front foot and of course the sending off helped, but it was thoroughly deserved and it was won by half-time,” Murphy said.

“We saw they didn’t play a big man up front, so we pressed them to play longer balls and we caught them out. Because we got the goals, we could relax in the second half.

“It’s satisfying because we haven’t beaten Tottenham for a while.”
