Fulham - Tottenham Prediction and Analysis
The round in the Premier League will be closed with the London derby between the teams of Fulham and Tottenham.
Both teams from this pair lost their last championship matches.
So it will be interesting to find out which of them will shake off the defeat easier.
I'm betting on Fulham. Who, even if they don't win, could at least reach a draw.
On the one hand, the Cottagers are more rested than Spurs , who played a postponed game last Thursday.
Fulham, on the other hand, are playing very strongly at their Craven Cottage, going 5-3-2 in 10 games here so far this season.
As the only two losses were against the teams from the Top 4 - Newcastle and Man United.
Aleksandar Mitrovic was the culprit for his team last time.
When he was penalized for missing a penalty against the Magpies.
The Serbian will certainly be looking for a personal revenge in front of the fans in today's game and is very likely to score.
Especially since Mitrovic has already scored 11 times in the Premier League this campaign.
Including all 4 London derbies so far this season.
Fulham - statistics and info
One of the newcomers to the Premier League this season, Fulham, is making a splash .
Not only are the Cottagers far from the battle for salvation that would be inherent for a rookie like them.
On the contrary - before this round they are in the Europe zone in the ranking .
Just 2 points behind today's rivals Tottenham and 7 points off the top 4.
So the Champions League zone can be a realistic goal for Marco Silva's players.
Given that there are many more games to be played before the end of the football season.
Last round, Fulham lost in ridiculous fashion against fellow Premier League powerhouses Newcastle with a last minute goal.
This defeat ended a run of 5 wins in all competitions for the Craven Cottage side.
Tottenham - statistics and info
Tottenham, like last year, have a single goal in front of them – to qualify in the Europe zone of the classification.
And more specifically in the Top 4 places that qualify for next year's Champions League.
Although Spurs are now in 5th place, their chances of attacking the top 4 are not small at all .
What may hold them back is the relative inconsistency they exhibit throughout the season.
Alternating periods of strong and weak results.
Just a few days ago, Antonio Conte's players were involved in one of the most spectacular matches in the league this season.
In it, they lost 2-4 away to Manchester City, despite leading 2-0 at half-time.
