Llorente’s tough afternoon

Fernando Llorente was tasked with filling in for the injured Harry Kane, but he will not look back on his first Premier League start of the season fondly. He did have the ball in the net after 17 minutes, but unfortunately it was the wrong one. His own goal set the tone for a disappointing performance at Craven Cottage. “He never seemed to get over it,” said Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp.

With his confidence hit, Llorente went on to miss a string of opportunities. The first came barely five minutes after his own goal when he headed an inviting cross into his own shoulder, allowing Sergio Rico to make a straightforward save. There was another head-in-hands moment when he nodded Danny Rose’s free-kick wide from six yards out in the closing stages.
