Results such as this are guaranteed to split any fanbase.
Those of a glass half-full persuasion will argue there’s merit in gaining a point from a losing position, while those who are feeling slightly parched might suggest a draw against one of the division’s strugglers offers no cause for celebration.
As always, there’s merit in both arguments.
This was a tougher game than most expected, with Fulham proving difficult to break down despite their well-documented defensive travails.
Their approach, when matched with our own passivity, made for mostly drab viewing.
Joao Moutinho and Romain Saiss did an excellent job of dominating the midfield, but were given scant options going forward.
Raul Jimenez was as industrious as ever, and nearly managed one of the goals of the season in a first half bereft of clear-cut chances.
But his striking counterpart Adama Traore continues to frustrate, ultimately being hooked at half-time.
At the halfway point of the campaign, the jury is firmly out on our record signing. But, as is so often the case with this young and developing side, a little perspective is needed before we jump to conclusions.
It was a difficult game for any attacking player to make an impact and it could have quite easily been Morgan Gibbs-White who was benched at the interval.
As pointed out by Nuno in his post-match interview, the teenager struggled to find space in an extremely congested final third.
Such frustrations are all part of the process of trying to find the correct nucleus for our attack, and we can probably expect a few more headaches between now and the end of the season.
Ivan Cavaleiro’s second-half showing offered plenty of encouragement, with the Portuguese winger capping things off with an impressive assist.
I’d expect to see him back in the team at Spurs, in a game where we’ll have to improve significantly to stand a chance of getting a result.
As a quick aside, this is the second time I’ve seen Alexander Mitrovic cause our defence major problems so I’m inclined to say there’s room for a centre forward of his ilk in our team.
We’ve lacked an abrasive presence up top for a number of years now, and the Serbian’s endeavour could quite easily have been our undoing were it not for Conor Coady’s goal-line heroics late on.
But for now, perhaps the fact we’re even in a position to debate the value of an away draw in the top-flight offers the biggest cause for positivity.
With 26 points already on the board, we’ve a great platform to build on during our remaining fixtures.
Improvement is needed, but Nuno will know this and is probably already cooking up a masterplan for next season.
For now, it’s just nice to be experiencing life in the top-flight without looking down ominously at what’s below us.
To put it into perspective, last time we contested a Premier League fixture at Craven Cottage we were stuffed 5-0.
