Tottenham Hotspur

Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham, who last weekend found a way to lose 2-1 against a Burnley side who didn’t have a single shot on target, welcome Spurs to Craven Cottage for a game that neither can afford to lose. The North London side, still nursing an outside hope of the title, will be without Harry Kane for this and the next several games;  with South Korean forward Son Heung-Min also unavailable here, could Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tips point to a shock in favour of the home side?

Despite being without arguably their two best attacking players, Spurs should be able to control the game against a Fulham side lacking confidence. We’d pick them to win (7/10 with Unibet) but, with the visitors probably relying on Fernando Llorente to lead the line, they might not be as free-scoring as they’d like to be. It’s a good idea to check Ladbrokes for the Fulham vs Tottenham best odds, as they have “Spurs win and <2.5 goals” at an encouraging 3/1. While you can find odds on Harry Kane scoring, his ankle specialist would beg to differ – instead, get on Dele Alli for the first goal. At 13/2 with Dafabet, he’s sensational value.

Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips: Form Guide

Fulham Running Out Of Time

The first thing Claudio Ranieri had to do on his arrival at Fulham was sort their defence out; broadly speaking, he’s done that. A side which hadn’t kept a single clean sheet prior to his arrival has kept two since, and notched wins over Southampton and Huddersfield. Last weekend at Burnley, an early Andre Schurrle goal inspired hope that three more points were in the post, but own goals from Joe Bryan and Denis Odoi turned victory to defeat. Right now, Fulham need luck, and it seems to be in short supply.

An exit in the third round of the FA Cup has at least reduced any worry of a fixture pile-up. The Cottagers lost 2-1 at home to Oldham, despite taking the lead early in the second half. While defeat at the hands of a fourth-tier team is embarrassing, Ranieri will be aware there are much larger fish to fry. His side sits five points from safety, and can’t afford to drop points in winnable games. A Boxing Day meeting at home to Wolves looked like delivering a win, but a late goal for the visitors really hurt Fulham’s survival hopes.

The main source of optimism in Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur match previews would seem to revolve around the home side’s talented attacking players. Schurrle, Alexandar Mitrovic, and exciting teenage winger Ryan Sessegnon are more than capable of making and taking chances and, if an unbalanced Spurs side are off their guard here, the hosts have players who can take advantage.

Spurs Need To Survive Into Spring

To lose one influential striker at this pivotal stage of the season is unfortunate. To lose a second? Well, blame the lack of a harmonised global football calendar. Spurs without Harry Kane are still usually a fearsome prospect, thanks to the boundless form and enthusiasm of Son. However, he’s off playing for South Korea in the Asian Cup, so the club’s decision not to spend in the summer is beginning to look foolhardy. Kane fell to the ground in the final minute of last week’s home game against Manchester United – tests later revealed he had an ankle ligament injury. For the moment, Spurs just need to stay in the race until their key men are back in the squad.

Kane’s misfortune was a case of adding injury to insult; he was hurt as Spurs unsuccessfully chased a late equaliser against a rejuvenated United. Although the home side dominated possession and chances, a superb performance from David de Gea in the visiting goal meant Martial’s opportunistic strike was enough to take the three points for the visitors. Allied to a shock 3-1 reverse in their last home league game – against Wolves – Spurs are developing a habit of coughing up points at Wembley.

Fortunately for Spurs fans checking Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tips for today, their away form is the best in the Premier League, with ten wins from twelve. Recent travels in the league have seen them beat Cardiff 3-0 with three first-half goals, and also brush Everton aside in a 6-2 annihilation at Goodison Park just before Christmas. They will hope, and indeed expect, to keep this away form up for 90 minutes at Craven Cottage.

Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview: Recent Meetings

When the sides met earlier in the season, Fulham kept their opponents at arm’s length until just before half-time, when a long-range strike from Lucas Moura flew into the top corner to give Spurs the lead. Early in the second half, Mitrovic profited from an excellent pass by Sessegnon to level the scores and threaten to give Fulham a point or more. It was on 74 minutes that this dream was punctured for good. Spurs wing-back Kieran Trippier bent in a free-kick reminiscent of his World Cup semi-final goal for England, and three minutes later Harry Kane broke his August Hoodoo; scoring his 109th Premier League goal, but his first ever in the month of August.

Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction: Tetchy Away Win

The gap between Fulham and the sides outside the relegation zone is larger than anyone could be comfortable with, and the club this week added veteran Dutch international Ryan Babel to their squad in the hope that he can grab a few goals in tight games. Babel could make his debut here, but it would be unreasonable to expect him to hit the ground running against opposition as tricky as Spurs. Mind you, Spurs would be delighted to have a new signing to throw in here. Without their two most immediate goal threats, they may struggle to put this game to bed.

With that said, we can’t really back against the visitors to come away with the points here. Fulham have the feel of a side who will keep battling until the end, but the same could have been said of a great many sides who have been relegated. Our Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur prediction for this weekend is that a patched-up Spurs side will get the win, it will be narrow, and Fulham will look to future games against less daunting opposition to get the points they need.
