Fulham vs Tottenham Premier League betting preview


Third-placed Tottenham will be looking to recover from last week's defeat when they face Fulham in a London Derby at Craven Cottage on Sunday. The Spurs won the reverse fixture 3-1 in August, with goals from Lucas Moura, Kieran Trippier and Harry Kane, while Aleksandar Mitrovic scored for the visitors. That was the fourth consecutive win for Tottenham over Fulham in all competitions. The last time the Cottagers won a match against the Spurs was in 2013, when they secured a 1-0 Premier League victory at White Hart Lane. Overall, Tottenham have won five of the last six direct matches.

Fulham are trying to climb out of the relegation zone under new manager Claudio Ranieri, but it seems the Italian boss has a more difficult task than he might have expected. Fulham have lost their last three matches in all competitions, 4-1 at Arsenal in the Premier League at the start of the new year, then 2-1 at home against Oldham in the FA Cup, and 2-1 at Burnley last weekend. The Cottagers are now 19th in the Premier League table, five points adrift of safety. Alfie Mawson has a knee injury and won't be part of the squad for Sunday's match, while Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa will have to pass a late fitness test.

Tottenham had their three-game winning streak in all competitions snapped last weekend as they lost 1-0 at home to in-form Manchester United. The Spurs had started 2019 with a good 3-0 victory at Cardiff in the Premier League, then won 7-0 at Tranmere in the FA Cup and 1-0 against Chelsea in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final. The defeat against Manchester United left the Spurs nine points behind league leaders Liverpool and just six points above fifth-placed Arsenal. Things can get complicated for Mauricio Pochettino and his men as Harry Kane has picked up an injury that will keep him away from the pitch until march, and Son Heung-Min is also unavailable due to international duty.

Probable line-ups:

Fulham: Rico - Odoi, Ream, Marchand - Christie, Chambers, Seri, Bryan - Schurrle, Mitrovic, Sessegnon

Tottenham: Lloris - Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen - Trippier, Winks, Eriksen, Rose - Alli, Lamela - Llorente

My prediction: Tottenham to win 2-1, it will be difficult for the Spurs without Kane but they should be able to squeeze past Fulham.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Fulham win - 5.50
Draw - 3.50
Tottenham win - 1.75

    I saw that one and I think it was a ridiculously stupid the way Fulham missed to grab a point in this one by some stupid decisions in the end.

    That wouldn't be an undeserved point for the newbies as they made the game tough for the favorites for the biggest part of it and could of even be 2 up front at the half.

    But in the dying seconds the way they gifted the ball back to Spurs and allowed a goal out of nothing really was just stupid and I really do believe a games like this deciding your future in the division when it's about a survival.
