- January 1, 2013
Tottenham 3 – Reading 1 (Premier League, January 1, 2013) (Alternative highlights, High quality highlights & MOTD highlights.) Reading jumped into a surprise lead at the Lane when a free-kick was parried by Lloris into Pavel Pogrebnyak’s path and the Russian headed home. Tottenham were only briefly behind before Michael Dawson equalised with a diving header from a Sigurdsson corner. Spurs turned the match early in the second half when Emmanuel Adebayor scored with a powerful header. The Royals were killed off when a Clint Dempsey shot looped over Federici via a deflection.
