Jermain Defoe upstaged Dimitar Berbatov by scoring twice to sink Fulham with a 3-0 victory and move Tottenham into fourth place in the Barclays Premier League.

The London derby had been billed as a chance for Berbatov to shine against his former club after such a wonderful start to his career in west London, but it was the man who so often lived in the Bulgarian's shadow at White Hart Lane who stole the show by bagging his 11th and 12th goals of the current campaign.

The England striker this week spoke about how working under Andre Villas-Boas had breathed life into his flagging career, and the 30-year-old delivered once again for his manager by killing off the game with Tottenham's final two goals after Sandro had opened the scoring with a 35-yard drive - his second goal for the club.
