Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur

Fulham will be aiming to put an end to their poor run of form this weekend but this will be no easy task with them welcoming Tottenham Hotspur to Craven Cottage. It has been a tough season for the Cottagers and if their current form persists then there is a good chance they will return to the Championship next season. Tottenham find themselves in third place, but following their recent loss to Manchester United may have given up their chances as title contenders and may have to settle with a top-four finish. When these sides met at Wembley Stadium earlier this season, Spurs made light work of their opponents as they eased to a 3-1 victory.

Fulham have secured just three wins all season and combined with their five draws they sit on 14 points, which sees them placed down in 19th after 22 games. Following their previous 2-1 defeat against Burnley, they have now lost a total of 14 games and it is hard to see them securing anything other than a loss this Sunday. However, if you fancy the underdog’s chances in this fixture then they can be backed with SkyBet for a price of 19/5. Although Fulham have the leakiest defence in the league they can cause problems on the attack and Bet365 have both teams to score at 4/5.

As mentioned above, the Cottagers have the leakiest defence in the league with 49 goals conceded, but with 20 goals scored they are the highest scoring side out of the bottom four sides. Aleksandar Mitrovic has provided almost half of his side’s goals this season with eight on his record so far and can be backed with Bet365 to score anytime for a price of 9/4. The first meeting between the sides this season ended 3-1 in favour of Tottenham and SkyBet have a repeat result priced at 12/1.

Mauricio Pochettino will be expecting nothing other than three points from this fixture, as these are the sort of games Tottenham needs to win if they plan on staying in the top four. Spurs picked up their sixth loss of the season last time out against Manchester United who clinched a 1-0 win at Wembley. This defeat put an end to a winning streak of three games for Spurs and they will be keen to bounce back this Sunday. Tottenham are priced at 3/4 with Betway to secure the three points from this fixture.

With their usual XI, you would fancy Tottenham’s chances against Fulham but the recent injury to Harry Kane and the loss of Son Heung-Min to the Asian Cup leaves them much weaker. The two forwards had 32 goals between them and 13 assists showing their importance to the side. Lucas Moura is the next highest scoring player, with eight goals and has odds of 8/5 with Bet365 to add to his tally this weekend.
