Match Preview: Fulham v Spurs (back to winning ways!)

Match Preview: Fulham v Spurs (back to winning ways!)

We need to return to our winning ways when we face Fulham at our Tottenham Hotspur stadium in this Saturday’s London derby (second London derby in a row).

We were held to a 1-1 draw by the bubbling blowing-jellied-eeled-Spammers in midweek; while Fulham got the better of Brighton & Hove Albion, 2-1.

In the game against the Jellied eels, we thought we had been awarded a penalty when the ball struck Aaron Cresswell on the arm in the first half. Still, referee Peter Bankes overturned the decision when he was sent to look at the monitor. But that was then, now we must get over that game and look ahead to Saturday’s game.

Our 11-point haul is currently good enough for third place behind champions Manchester City, and our North London rivals Woolwich.

We can close the gap on the Gunners to just one point as they face Manchester United on Sunday afternoon (provided they can beat United, who haven’t had a good start to the season).

We should take confidence in the fact that we have now strung together an 11-game unbeaten run in the League and won each of our last five matches on home soil.

Fulham are still waiting for their first away win in any competition this season after also going down 2-0 to Crawley Town in an EFL Cup giant-killing; they also failed to win any of their last three Championship games away last term.

Fulham managed to hold us to a 1-1 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2020-21, but we ran out 1-0 winners at Craven Cottage and are unbeaten in seven since 2013.

Team News

Tottenham Hotspur

We have Oliver Skipp back on the bench for the draw with the spammers, and there is also hope that Cristian Romero and Rodrigo Bentancur will be back this weekend as well.

Neither Bryan Gil nor Lucas Moura were available for the game against the Jellied eels.

Fulham

Silva is still without long-term malingerers Harry Wilson and Manor Solomon, but Shane Duffy will be back in the fold after being ineligible to face parent club Brighton.

My possible starting lineup:

Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son

My prediction

I am going for 3-0. Even though I’ve been widely off this season in predicting,  I am confident we will get a few goals past the Cottagers.

Nothing more I can say, other than Up the Spurs!

  1. Think we have a good chance to get back to winning ways on home soil maybe 3-1but am rubbish at predicting lol COYS

    1. Hi, as things turned out, we won, but not by our predictions. But a win is a win. At least we haven’t lost yet. I just hope that United beat Arsenal today, or at least a draw.
