Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
A rejuvenated Fulham team should be able to outperform Conte’s worn-out team on Monday night. Conte’s team is still searching for solutions in all areas and is unlikely to find them.
The Tottenham Hotspur propensity for scoring on the road should still work in their favor, but we cannot back Spurs’ error-prone team to win this London derby, and Fulham can look forward to overtaking their rivals in the standings with all three points.
Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview
Aleksandar Mitrovic, a former Newcastle striker, came within 12 yards of making his return to St. James’ Park memorable as Fulham held off the Tottenham Hotspur before receiving a contentious penalty in the second half.
Naturally, Mitrovic stepped up to the spot, but the Serbian comically touched the ball twice as he slid over to score, resulting in the effort being ruled out. With 89 minutes remaining, Marco Silva watched as Alexander Isak came off the bench to head Newcastle into the lead.
As the seventh-placed Fulham are only two points behind Spurs and one behind Brighton & Hove Albion, who could only draw with Leicester City on Saturday, a spot in the top five of the table is very possible for Fulham on Monday.
The Fulham five-game winning streak since the start of domestic play came to an end against Newcastle, but Silva’s team is showing they can compete with Champions League contenders as they welcome Spurs to Craven Cottage less than two weeks after beating Chelsea at home.
Only Manchester United and Newcastle have defeated the Fulham at home this season; some may even consider Silva’s team to be the favorites for Monday’s match. Fulham hasn’t won three straight home games in the Premier League since 2012.
More on Match Preview
Tottenham made a ton of mistakes in the second half at the Etihad after benefiting from Man City’s defensive miscues in the first 45 minutes as they failed to build on the advantages given to Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal just before halftime.
The champions took the lead through Riyad Mahrez, Julian Alvarez, and Erling Braut Haaland within just 18 minutes of the second half, and the former added a second just before the buzzer to end a thrilling six-goal contest.
Conte’s team is still in the top five after Brighton lost to Leicester, and the distance to fourth-placed Newcastle United is now six points following the Tottenham Hotspur goalless draw against Crystal Palace. Conte lamented the fact that his team is making “many, many mistakes” after losing their third Premier League game in four since the start of the year.
Spurs have only won one of their last five Premier League games, but that victory came away from home in a London derby against Crystal Palace, as the Tottenham Hotspur thrashed the Eagles 4-0 at Selhurst Park. The Tottenham Hotspur have now scored at least two goals in four straight away Premier League games.
The Tottenham Hotspur have won each of their last six Premier League games at Craven Cottage, and Conte’s team narrowly defeated Fulham 2-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season. However, past victories will mean nothing if Spurs’ shaky defense cannot tighten up quickly.
Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Team News
With no new injury concerns from their trip to the North East, Fulham will be happy to have Antonee Robinson back after serving a one-game suspension. Robinson will take the place of Layvin Kurzawa at left back.
Neeskens Kebano’s Achilles injury keeps him out for the foreseeable future, and Shane Duffy needs to get checked out after getting sick, but Silva won’t want to make any changes to his team after an eight-day break.
Issa Diop was chosen over Tosin Adarabioyo at Newcastle and can be confident in keeping his spot after a competent performance, while Carlos Vinicius will accept a spot on the bench against his former team as Mitrovic attempts to make up for the mistakes of last weekend. Mitrovic has scored in all four of his Premier League London derbies this season.
The only player guaranteed to miss Monday’s game for Tottenham is long-term tendon victim Lucas Moura, and Bryan Gil is questionable after suffering an injury.
A few adjustments should be made for the Tottenham Hotspur as Conte has acknowledged that he will need to evaluate Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski, who showed signs of fatigue on Thursday after just returning from an injury.
Richarlison is a candidate to fill in for the underwhelming Son Heung-min, and Ivan Perisic should make way for Ryan Sessegnon after a forgettable evening at the Etihad.
