Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur face off on Thursday in an English Premier League showdown at the Craven Cottage.
Tottenham Hotspur comes into this game sitting in eighth place in the standings having picked up 39 points so far this year. Tottenham have dealt with injuries this season and at times it has thrown off their success. In the last game though against Burnley, the offense was strong scoring four goals and that led to three points. Gareth Bale opened up the scoring in the 2nd minute and added another one in the 55th minute to pace the team. In that last game, Tottenham Hotspur only allowed three shots on goal. On the season the Spurs have scored 41 goals while their defense has given up 27 goals total. Harry Kane has been the best for the team putting in 14 goals and adding 11 assists.
Fulham currently sits in the relegation zone in 18th place having picked up 23 points so far this season. Fulham sits 3 points behind safety. Fulham hasn’t played awful as of late, but they need to start securing three points at a time if they don’t want to be relegated. Over the last four games they have picked up eight points. In the last game against Crystal Palace the defense was strong giving up zero goals but they also couldn’t score any goals and that led to a draw. Fulham on the season has put 21 goals in the back of the net while the defense has given up 32 goals total. Goal scoring has been an issue for this team and at some point they are going to need to turn that around. Bobby Reid has been the best player having scored five goals on the season.
Fulham has a strong defense and that will be the difference again in this game. Look for a low-scoring game that stays well under the total.
