If you are looking for Fulham vs Tottenham prediction & betting tips, you are at the right place. We’re now going to discuss everything about the duel taking place on Craven Cottage in West London on Sunday afternoon. So, let’s start!
Fulham are currently second from the bottom and are among the biggest candidates for relegation back to the Championship. Their performances in the first part of the season were really dreadful, which is why the management decided to sack Slavisa Jokanovic and put a much more experienced manager in charge. The man in question is Claudio Ranieri, the man who led Leicester City to win the Premier League title.
Unfortunately for Fulham, even Ranieri doesn’t seem capable of doing wonders. His arrival did make them play better on a few occasions, but Fulham’s recent form has been pretty disappointing. They’ve lost each of the 3 matches they played so far in 2019.
On the bright side, Fulham have started improving their goal-scoring yield. Right now, they have a total of 20 goals scored in the Premier League, but 4 of those were scored in the previous 4 rounds. Their top scorer is Mitrovic with 8, followed by Kamara with 3. Both of these guys are attackers, but one of them will probably miss the Sunday’s match. The reason is that the two haven’t been working well together both on and off the pitch. And that’s something that’s bound to have a bad impact on the atmosphere in the locker-room.
The Spurs lost to Man United last weekend at the Wembley, but despite the home defeat, they’re still flying very high. Prior to the round 23, Tottenham were still at the 3rd place on the Premier League table, but Chelsea are breathing by their necks. And if Chelsea beat Arsenal on Saturday, Tottenham will have to go for a victory against Fulham in order to remain at the 3rd spot.
In normal circumstances, beating Fulham would be easy for this team. However, many of their players are struggling with fitness. The thing is that they have a very short bench, meaning that their key men need to play more than their bodies can handle. The result is that many of them are feeling tired and in need of a rest.
On top of everything, their best player Harry Kane got injured last week and will miss this match. And Son is away on international duty. This means that the Spurs might struggle to score on Sunday. However, knowing how soft at the back Fulham are, putting a goal or two should not be a problem for them.
Another thing that suggests that the Spurs are going to do well in this match is that they’re very good at bouncing back after defeats. Actually, each time they lost a match in the last 3 months, they came right back in the next round, putting 3 goals in the opponent’s net. The chances are that something similar will happen on Sunday.

Fulham vs Tottenham Prediction
Tottenham are almost guaranteed to win this game. They’re just much better than Fulham. And I think they’re going to do it in style, meaning that we should see at least two or three goals in Rico’s net.
