Fulham vs Tottenham: Premier League preview

T

ottenham are aiming to record back-to-back league wins for the first time since November as they face Fulham in a London derby on Thursday.

A Gareth Bale-inspired 4-0 thumping of Burnley saw Spurs exude some much-needed confidence as they kicked off a short run of games against relegation candidates before the north London derby at Arsenal.

For all of their struggles this season – including five defeats from six before Sunday’s win – Spurs somehow retain hope of breaking into the top four.

Scott Parker’s resurgent Fulham are unbeaten in five – winning two of their last four – to become a serious concern for the teams hovering perilously above the drop zone.

A win over Spurs would move them above the 17th-placed Newcastle on goal difference to pile more pressure on Steve Bruce, as well as leaving them level on points with Brighton.

Fulham vs Tottenham is scheduled for a 6pm GMT kick-off on Thursday, March 4, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Craven Cottage.

Aleksandar Mitrovic returned from a coronavirus absence for a run out against Crystal Palace. Marek Rodak and Tom Cairney are still out.

Gareth Bale should start again after coming off against Burnley, while Dele Alli will be hoping for another run out after just 25 minutes on Sunday.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has shrugged off an injury concern, meaning Giovani Lo Celso remains Jose Mourinho’s sole absentee.

Prediction: Fulham 1-2 Tottenham

Spurs were as good as Burnley were bad on Sunday, and Fulham should prove slightly tougher opposition. More of the same from Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Gareth Bale should see out the win.
