TOTTENHAM missed the chance to jump up to third in the Premier League after being held at home to Fulham.
Jose Mourinho's men had appeared to be in cruise control after Harry Kane's diving header gave them a first-half lead.9Fulham celebrated after Cavaleiro snatched a dramatic equaliserCredit: Reuters 9Ivan Cavaleiro jumped above Eric Dier to nod home Lookman's cross and equaliseCredit: Reuters 9Hugo Lloris couldn't get to Cavaleiro's buller header as the spoils were sharedCredit: Times Newspapers Ltd 9Harry Kane got Spurs off to a flying start with a pinpoint diving headerCredit: Getty Images - Getty
Alphonso Areola was kept busy in the Fulham goal throughout as Spurs pressed forward for a second.
But the Cottagers stunned the hosts and snatched a crucial point as Cavaleiro rose highest to nod home Ademola Lookman's pinpoint cross.
Tottenham started the game well and deservedly took the lead as their constant pressure took its toll on Fulham.
Kane eventually broke the deadlock after 28 minutes as he timed a diving header perfectly to convert Sergio Reguilon's teasing cross.
Spurs pressed on to find a game-clinching second, with Son Heung-min even hitting the post after the break.
But Fulham also looked as though they had a goal in them, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Kenny Tete both going close.
And eventually 18th-placed Fulham snatched a goal as Cavaleiro leapt the highest to head home Lookman's tantalising cross.
And Spurs were dealt a sucker punch in stoppage time when they had what would have been a last-gasp winner ruled out.

Reguilon had turned home a Son cross, only for the assistant referee to raise his flag for offside on the South Korean.
The draw leaves Tottenham in sixth place, six points adrift of league-leading Manchester United having themselves recently topped the standings only for a shock dip in form to send them shooting down the table.
Fulham stay 18th two points off Brighton - who earlier lost 1-0 to Manchester City thanks to a Phil Foden strike.
The Cottagers do have two games in hand on the Seagulls, though, in their bid for survival.

Tottenham stars ‘surprised over Gareth Bale’s lack of action’ under Jose Mourinho since loan transfer return from Madrid
TOTTENHAM'S squad are reportedly surprised at Gareth Bale's lack of game time this season.
The Wales star, on loan from Real Madrid, has made just four Premier League appearances.3Gareth Bale will spend the remainder of this season on loan with SpursCredit: Getty Images - Getty
ESPN claim Bale's team-mates are baffled by his limited chances under Jose Mourinho.
The squad have reportedly been impressed by how well he has performed at training.
But the 31-year-old has still failed to cement his spot in Mourinho's starting line-up.
Bale returned to the North London club on a season-long loan from Madrid in September.
He has managed just 165 minutes of football in the Premier League so far this term.
Mourinho has insisted that Spurs have not yet decided whether to renew Bale's loan deal.
He said: "There was not even a second of discussion about that.
"Gareth is a player who is on loan until the end of the season. There has not been one second of discussion.

"We are speaking about facts, Gareth himself, Real Madrid, Tottenham… but I promise you not one second of discussion.”
