Fulham vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 4 March 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
The Spurs are desperately chasing after a spot in the top-most tier. As of now, they are placed eighth in the table, and need a surplus of six points to get into the Champions League spots.
However, they do have a match in hand, and the likes of Liverpool, Everton etc have not been at their best lately.
Moreover, Jose Mourinho will be thrilled with the return to form of Gareth Bale, and return of Harry Kane from injury. Quite easily, the Portuguese gaffer has a fantastic duo in these two, ably supported by the inspirational Son Heung-Min.
Meanwhile, the Cottagers are one of the worst in the league, and are placed 18th in the table as of now. They have posted a total of just four wins till now, and only West Brom, and Sheffield have scored fewer goals than them so far.
Most importantly, the Spurs have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years.
As such, expect Tottenham to deliver a winning performance this Thursday at the Craven Cottage.
Fulham vs Tottenham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Mourinho’s men had recorded wins in 11 of the last 14 games.
- They had scored two or more goals in eight of the former ten meetings.
- The guests are on a five-match winning run at this stadium.
- The hosts have conceded a total of 13 goals from the last four encounters at this ground.
Fulham vs Tottenham Prediction
Scott Parker’s men were held to a 0-0 draw the last match-day on the road, by Crystal Palace. In the meantime, Jose’s men had recorded a 4-0 win at home the past game week, against Burnley.
Going on, the Cottagers were winless in 16 of their last 18 overall fixtures, and they had failed to score in five of their preceding nine matches.
At home, they have won just thrice this whole season, and two of those wins had come against the 19th and 20th placed teams in the PL, while the third had come against the relegation-battler in the Championship.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won three of their last four overall matches, and they were unbeaten in 18 of their past 23 away games.
In addition, the Spurs have a terrific h2h record against this foe over the years, and most importantly, Parker’s men are a recently promoted squad.
By the looks of things, expect Tottenham to record the win this Thursday.
