Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. When these two teams faced off in March 2021, it was Tottenham that secured the 1-0 victory.
Tottenham comes into this game sitting 3rd place in the standings having picked up 11 points. Tottenham has to feel good about sitting in 3rd place, but they can’t feel great about only getting one point in the last game against West Ham. Tottenham had 63 percent of the possession, but were actually out shot 4-3. The only goal for Tottenham was an own goal, and they gave up a goal in the 55th minute to allow the draw. Oliver Skipp is back for Tottenham, and the hope is that Cristian Romero and Rodrigo Bentancur will be back for this game also. In this game, Tottenham needs to put the pressure on with their offense early and make life tough on the Fulham defense.
On the other side of this matchup is Fulham, who sits in 8th place in the standings having picked up eight points. Fulham faced off against Brighton in a midweek game, and the offense scored two goals on the way to the victory. Fulham only had 39 percent of the possession and were outshot, but they still did enough to secure the win. Fulham has scored eight goals this season, while they have given up seven. Aleksandar Mitrović is having a strong season for Fulham, scoring five goals. Going forward, more players outside of Fulham are going to need to step up and make the offense a more balanced attack. Fulham in this game I expect will run out the same lineup that played on Tuesday.
Tottenham’s defense has been a big issue this season, and Fulham has a playmaker in Mitroivc that can defeat this defense by himself. I also expect Tottenham to continue the success with scoring, and this game is going to be higher scoring. Back the over to cash here.
