Fulham vs Tottenham: Preview, predictions and lineups

  • Tottenham can go fourth in the Premier League with a win over Fulham
  • Micky van de Ven absent from the Spurs defence after suffering injury in Aston Villa victory
  • Fulham still fighting for a top-half finish

Tottenham continue their tense fight for the Champions League places on Saturday when they visit fellow Londoners Fulham.

Ange Postecoglou's side can move into the top four at Aston Villa's expense with a victory before their rivals play on Sunday. Buoyed by their emphatic 4-0 win over the Villans last Sunday, Spurs know this is a good opportunity to build on that result.

Fulham have hit some Premier League form recently, winning three out of four matches, but they fell to a disappointing 2-1 loss away at Wolves last weekend which has hindered their chances of finishing in the top half.

Here is 90min's preview of Tottenham's trip to Fulham.

Fulham team news

Marco Silva should have his whole Fulham squad available for this match.

The Cottagers were unable to rely on Raul Jimenez in the loss to Wolves but he is expected to be fit to face Tottenham, though the excellent form of Rodrigo Muniz means the Mexico international will likely be on the bench.

Joao Palhinha was a substitute last time out but, against a team like Tottenham with so many runners, he is expected to start, meaning Sasa Lukic may drop out of the starting XI.

While the victory over Aston Villa was a potentially huge moment in Tottenham's season, Micky van de Ven picked up a fresh knee injury and is not expected to play. That will likely see January signing Radu Dragusin make his first start for the club.

Ryan Sessegnon, Fraser Forster and Manor Solomon are all still on the treatment table, but Richarlison may be closer to availability than previously thought having been included in Brazil's squad for the March international break.

Even if the former Everton attacker makes the squad, Brennan Johnson should get another start in the attack.

Fulham vs Tottenham score prediction

Fulham have been a very difficult team to beat at times this season and Arsenal fell victim to them at Craven Cottage earlier in the campaign, but Tottenham will be flying after that win against Villa which has put them in a great position for the top four.

A leaky Spurs defence means the Cottagers will likely find the back of the net at some point, but there is too much firepower and confidence in the Tottenham attack for Silva's side to get a result on Saturday evening.

Prediction: Fulham 1-3 Tottenham
