Fulham vs Tottenham Prediction & Match Preview

Fulham

Tottenham

4 March 2021 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET Premier League Craven Cottage

After failing to turn their dominance into goals in a draw with Crystal Palace, Fulham will be aiming to escape the relegation zone when they take on Tottenham in yet another London derby. 

The Cottagers are fighting hard to avoid relegation to the Championship, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Spurs. 

Midfielder Tom Cairney remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.

Jose Mourinho’s troops, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team rolling over Wolfsberger (4-0) in the Europa League, while crushing Burnley with the same outcome in the Premier League. 

After scoring a brace in the victory over Burnley, Gareth Bale should keep his place in the starting XI, and seeing that Mourinho can count on key players for the local derby, away win should be considered.

Team News:

Marek Rodak and Tom Cairney are the only two injury concerns for Fulham, who will no doubt be aiming to keep changes to a minimum amid their solid run of form.

Ola Aina's substitution at half time against Palace was a tactical decision, Parker confirmed, so it would not be a surprise to see Antonee Robinson given the nod here.

Should the hosting manager make some alterations before Sunday's meeting with Liverpool, Mario Lemina and Ivan Cavaleiro could both return to the starting lineup, but Aleksandar Mitrovic may not be ready for a start just yet.

The only occupant of Tottenham's medical room at present is Giovani Lo Celso, but there is hope that he could return to the squad for the North London derby later this month.

With Bale's qualities finally coming to the fore, the Welshman will not want to be dropped for this game, while Dele Alli enjoyed a third substitute outing in succession against Burnley but may not be considered for a start just yet.

It remains to be seen if Serge Aurier will be risked again after only just returning from injury, but in an ideal world, Mourinho would name an unchanged XI from the weekend's win, although the congested schedule means that changes could be made.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Robinson; Reed, Lemina; Cavaleiro, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman; Maja

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Doherty, Dier, Sanchez, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Sissoko; Bale, Moura, Son; Kane.
