Ange Postecoglou’s side headed into the international break with a 1-0 triumph over Luton Town and were keen to make it three straight wins in the final game of Matchday 10.
Spurs began the game on the front foot and had the first opportunity through Heung-min Son whose effort was well dealt with by Bernd Leno.
After weathering the early storm, Fulham settled into the game and started to grow in confidence.
The Cottagers came close to breaking the deadlock in the 12th minute from a corner as Joao Palhinha called Guglielmo Vicario into action.
Tottenham continued to dominate proceedings, albeit with little end result, as Fulham remained resilient at the back.
On the half-hour mark, Richarlison tried his luck from the edge of the box, but his effort flew harmlessly wide of Leno’s goal.
Tottenham continued to search for the game’s opening goal which eventually arrived in the 36th minute.
A loose pass from Calvin Bassey was pounced upon and the ball found its way via Richarlison to Son who finished with aplomb.
Buoyed by their opener, Spurs went in search of a second goal before the half-time whistle and should have doubled their advantage five minutes before the interval, but for some wasteful finishing from Destiny Udogie.
That was the last meaningful action of the first half, at the end of which Tottenham headed to the locker room in cruise control.
Spurs began the second half in similar fashion to the first and were rewarded with a second goal nine minutes after the restart.
Son turned provider for James Maddison to score his third goal for the Lilywhites and put some daylight between them and Fulham.
The concession of a second goal inevitably spurred Fulham into more attacking intensity heading into the final knockings of the game.
Fulham fashioned out their best opportunity of the second half six minutes from time with Raul Jimenez stinging the palms of Vicario.
However, it wasn’t to be for Marco Silva’s side as they were beaten in yet another London derby without scoring.
For Tottenham, Monday’s victory represents another step in the right direction under their new manager, who continues to deliver the goods.
