Steve Sidwell celebrates scoring the game's opening goal against Manchester United [Reuters]

A late fight back by Manchester United against Fulham counted for little as Darren Bent scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time to claim a 2-2 draw for the Premier League's bottom team.

Fulham first stunned Old Trafford in the 19th minute when Steve Sidwell scored to leave United facing a ninth loss of its title defence.

It took Robin van Persie until the 78th minute to level and Michael Carrick netted again for United inside two minutes.
But just when United thought it was collecting three valuable points, Bent headed in Fulham's equalizer to clinch a much-needed point for the struggling London team.

Heartbreak for United

Earlier in the day Tottenham Hotspur's Champions League pursuit was given a timely tonic when Emmanuel Adebayor's goal clinched a 1-0 victory over Everton to dislodge the losers from fifth place in the Premier League.

By overcoming one of this season's top-five teams for the first time despite being largely outplayed, Tottenham moved just three points behind fourth-place Liverpool.

Spurs scored from their only shot on target, with Adebayor connecting with a free kick, taken swiftly and smartly by Kyle Walker, and sending the ball past goalkeeper Tim Howard in the 65th minute.

Having collected just one point from its previous two matches, Tottenham's season is back on track again, moving nine points behind leader Chelsea.
