Spurs are hoping to record their first Premier League victory in five games when they host the Cottagers on Wednesday. Check out our Tottenham Hotspur vs Fulham Preview.
Tottenham Hotspur Recent Form & Team News
Wolves’ late equalizer last time out extended Tottenham Hotspur’s winless Premier League run to four games (D2, L2). Spurs now dropped a league-high nine points after conceding beyond the 80th minute this term. However, Spurs have an opportunity to end 2020 on a high as they are unbeaten in their last seven PL London derbies (W3, D4).
Tottenham have been solid here this season, and are unbeaten in ten of their last 11 competitive home outings (W7, D3, L1 in 90 minutes). Still, Spurs have kept just one clean sheet in their previous six home games versus promoted sides (W4, D1, L1), with five of those featuring exactly one first-half goal.
Players to watch: Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane are the PL’s most potent combination, assisting each other for a combined 12 league goals.
Hot stat: Spurs have lost just one of their last 11 final league games of a calendar year (W7, D3, L1). However, that did come at home vs promoted opposition (2018 – 3-1 vs Wolves).
Jose Mourinho will be without Giovani Lo Celso (muscle), while Gareth Bale (calf) is questionable to play.
Fulham Recent Form & Team News
Visiting Fulham will definitely enter 2021 in the bottom three should they fail to win here, thanks to their disappointing December form (D4, L1). A rare clean sheet may be necessary for a good result, as Fulham haven’t scored 2+ goals vs Spurs in 13 Premier League meetings (W1, D2, L10) and also possess a PL record run of 13 straight defeats in London derbies ahead of this.
The first goal could be fatal too, as Fulham are one of just three PL sides yet to pick up a point when conceding first (L8), something they’ve done four times on the road. Although never losing when scoring first, Fulham haven’t been good value for a lead on their PL travels either (W1, D2).
Player to watch: Bobby Decordova-Reid is the only Fulham player credited with a goal across their five games in December so far.
Scott Parker doesn’t have any new injury-related concerns as Terence Kongolo (foot) is the only player listed questionable to feature.
