Footage shows comedian Michael McIntyre hyping Tottenham fans from stands during Carabao Cup tie at Fulham

McIntyre is a huge Tottenham fan and often travels to watch games when possible.

But on Tuesday night, the TV presenter made his presence heard when he stood up and starting hyping up the away fans.

He punched the air several times as the Tottenham supporters cheered, moments after Richarlison scored an equaliser in bizarre circumstances.

Micky van de Ven had netted an own goal in the first half to give Fulham the lead at Craven Cottage.

It is already the second own goal the 23-year-old has scored at the club since signing in the summer from Wolfsburg.

But Richarlison’s first goal of the season gave Spurs hope going in a competition they had high hopes of winning.

However, McIntyre could not inspire the players to victory as the match went to penalties.

Davinson Sanchez saw his effort saved by Marek Rodak in the Fulham net to the delight of the home fans behind the goal.

The Cottagers made no mistake from the spot, slotting home brilliantly all five of their efforts.

And it was Kenny Tete, who was not on the pitch when Tottenham scored, to grab the winning penalty.

Ironically, he scored it with a new boot after racing off the pitch to find a new one after his ripped in half, as Spurs netted their equaliser.

Ange Postecoglou has had Tottenham fans rejoicing after a new brand of football that has caught the eye.

Especially after a delightful 2-0 win over Bournemouth but they have been sent crashing back down to earth with Tuesday night’s display.

The Australian coach named a heavily-changed side, replacing nine of the players that started on Saturday.

And it made a massive difference with those stepping in failing to impress where the players such as James Maddison, Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr have impressed.

But it is a fine win for Fulham, who many predicted to struggle after losing Aleksandar Mitrovic this summer to Saudi Arabia.
