Tottenham vs Fulham prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?


Tottenham Hotspur face Fulham on Wednesday night in a hastily rearranged game, which is perhaps indicative of the crazy nature of the Premier League schedule this season. Spurs were originally supposed to be away at Aston Villa, before a Covid breakout at the Midlands club has forced a reshuffle affecting several sides.

At the weekend, both Spurs and Fulham were involved in FA Cup action, with Jose Mourinho’s side seeing off non-league Marine in an encounter to remember for all sorts of reasons. While the 5-0 result was never really in doubt, it was an historical occasion due to the gap between the teams in the league pyramid and also saw youngster Alfie Devine net his first senior goal.

Fulham played QPR in the third round and emerged triumphant with a 2-0 win, though the big talking point post-match was the presence of Eberechi Eze watching his old side play – the Crystal Palace winger has since been admonished by his club.

In league terms, Spurs can go level on points with third-place Leicester if they take the win, while Fulham will be hoping to close the gap between themselves and safety by going level on points with Brighton with victory.

What is the team news?

Erik Lamela is in contention for a recall after being left out following a rule-breach. Giovani Lo Celso is still out, though, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is also a doubt for Spurs, but should start.

Fulham could have a full squad to choose from, after resting a host of names at the weekend. Scott Parker’s big decision comes with who to start in attack out of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ademola Lookman.

Predicted line-ups

TOT: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Bale, Ndombele, Son; Kane

FUL: Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo; Decordova-Reid, Lemina, Reed, Anguissa, Robinson; Cavaleiro, Lookman

Odds

Tottenham – 5/12

Draw – 43/10

Fulham – 8/1

Prediction

Spurs’ opponent might have changed but if anything it’s for the better with a home game and weaker team, while Fulham come into this on short notice and not having been planning a fixture at all, making tactical work difficult. Home win as a result. Spurs 3-1 Fulham.
