Fulham vs Tottenham tips and predictions: Champions League chasing Spurs can’t afford derby slip-up

Tottenham resume their top four chase this weekend as they travel across the city for a battle with Fulham this Saturday evening (1730 GMT).

Have Spurs made much progress under Ange Postecoglou? The final 11 games of the season will certainly give us an answer.

The club didn’t get a sniff at a trophy this season after bowing out in the early stages of both the Carabao and FA Cups.

However, finishing the Premier League campaign in the top four and booking a Champions League return would undoubtedly make up for another season without silverware.

Trouble is, the race for the top four is far from over. In fact, it could go down to the wire with Aston Villa and Manchester United also setting their sights on the coveted European spot.

Spurs will be hoping to boost their Champions League ambitions by securing a confident win over Fulham away at Craven Cottage.

Tottenham have a solid record at the ground, winning their last seven away Premier League trips to Fulham.

What’s more, Postecoglou’s men have lost just one of their last 10 away London derbies in the competition.

Fulham have endured a relatively average campaign, though don’t let their mid-table placing fool you.

The Cottagers have been hard to beat in recent weeks with Marco Silva’s men losing just two of their last seven outings.

One of those defeats came in their most recent outing away at Wolves and Fulham will be determined to avoid back-to-back league defeats – something they haven’t endured since December.

Despite this, we’re backing Tottenham to come away with the three points. Every game from now until the end of the season is essentially a cup final for Postecoglou’s side.

Their desperation coupled with good form should be enough to get them over the line.

Both teams to score and the away team to be victorious is the way to go.


Team news

Fulham sole injury worry concerns Raul Jimenez who has a thigh problem.

Spurs, on the other hand, are without Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon and Micky van de Ven. Richarlison is also a doubt.
