Fulham vs Tottenham Prediction: PL | 23.01.2023

Premier League action on Monday evening comes from Craven Cottage, as there is an intriguing London derby to look forward to. Tottenham continue to chase the Champions League spots, while Fulham could potentially move above their rivals with a victory.


Premier League Preview

It has been an excellent return to the Premier League for Fulham, but it’s unlikely that even Marco Silva saw his side challenging for a Champions League spot. The Cottagers have won nine of the 20 games that they have played to this point, and they come into this interesting London derby just two points behind fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Fulham has won four of their previous five Premier League fixtures, with their only defeat coming in their previous match. That loss was suffered at St James’ Park, as the Cottagers were beaten 1-0 by Newcastle. However, the result could have been extremely different had Aleksandar Mitrovic not slipped when taking his penalty. Since the ball struck both feet, Newcastle was handed a reprieve, and they quickly took advantage by scoring the winning goal.

Tottenham Hotspur will be the visitors on Monday, as they look to keep alive their hopes of a finish in the Champions League places. It has been a strange month or so for Spurs, as they have won just once in four league matches. However, their performance in that success was excellent, beating Crystal Palace 4-0 on the road.

That strong display was followed by an underwhelming effort in the North London derby, as they were easily brushed aside by Arsenal. The inconsistency of the team is plaguing their hopes of a top-four finish this term, and the frustrations of Antonio Conte are mounting with every below-par effort from his team.

Fulham vs Tottenham Head to Head 

Fulham has picked up just two wins from the previous 19 meetings between the two London sides. Over the same period, Spurs has won on 14 occasions. Tottenham has gone seven without defeat against the Cottagers in the Premier League, which includes their 2-1 win in the reverse fixture in September.

Fulham vs Tottenham Prediction

This could be a pivotal game in Tottenham’s season, and it will be interesting to see the performance that we get from them. However, the preference is for Fulham to pick up a gutsy win against their London rivals, just as they did against Chelsea a few weeks ago.
