"I can't even remember the last time I scored, to be honest", Winks said.

As mentioned earlier, there are no easy games in the Premier League...yet it does seem that the easy games come more frequently for Manchester City than any other side! Llorente also spurned two gilt-edged chances as Spurs suffered from the absence of Kane and South Korean Son Heung-min.

"What we have done so far has been incredible, in the league and the Carabao Cup".

Against the worst defensive side in the Premier League, Spurs went into halftime with just 1 shot on target, and a goal down. Maybe as importantly, the gap to fifth-placed Arsenal in the race for the four Champions League qualification positions is now seven points again.

After the intermission, German midfielder Leroy Sane stole the limelight, assisting on City's second goal and then scoring to make it 3-0.

City manager Pep Guardiola wasn't happy with the performance, though.

At Craven Cottage, a Fernando Llorente own goal gave Fulham the lead in the 17th minute. It's the opposite for Huddersfield who have won only two games all season with the last of those coming in November.

He produced the kind of near-post finish Kane would have been proud of against Fulham.

In the 14th minute he was back to defend a corner but when Jean Michael Seri swung it in Llorente inadvertently poked it into his own goal attempting a clearance.

Luckily for him, Alli was more ruthless as he headed in Christian Eriksen's delivery in the 51st minute.

He eventually got up and hobbled to the tunnel.

After the win, City has 56 points, good for the second spot in the Premier League standings but four points back of Liverpool, which earned a hard-fought 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"This game can teach us and show what we have to do to improve", said Guardiola, who was particularly unimpressed with the pace his team played at, as well as the quality of the passing in the first half.

Defeat left Fulham seven points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United and facing an increasingly hard task to avoid being relegated back to the Championship.

Toothless Huddersfield, who had caretaker boss Mark Hudson in charge for the first time, have only 11 points and are 10 points behind Newcastle United who are 17th.
