——————–
Form

Fulham have been in very poor form over the festive period, losing two of their last five league games, with also one win and two draws.
They also lost their FA Cup match 1-2 at home to Oldham in early January as well. They were beaten 2-1 away to Burnley last weekend with Burnley taking all three points despite not registering a single shot on target, as both goals came via own-goals.

They will need to improve significantly from that performance as they face a Spurs side who will be still seething after losing 1-0 at home to Man Utd last weekend.
Tottenham are third in the Premier League table, nine points behind leaders Liverpool.

A Man Of The Match performance from United goalkeeper David De Gea was the main reason for Tottenham not scoring in their 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday last.

They have won four of their last six league games with defeats to Wolves and Man Utd in between. They have scored 16 goals in those six matches and conceded just six.

The Match

This London Derby fixture normally throws up lots of goals and this one should be no different. Fulham have been conceding goals with Tottenham putting six past Everton and five past Bournemouth over the festive period.

Tottenham come into this game in fantastic form with the only blip in recent games being an entertaining 4-2 loss at home to Barcelona in the Champions League. They have played eight games with six wins and two losses, scoring 15 and conceding 7. They are currently just two points behind leaders Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool and will be hoping for a victory here to keep-up with the three co-leaders at the top of the Premier League table.

HEAD TO HEADS
Tottenham Hotspur have won this London Derby fixture 3-1 in the last two league meetings between the sides and have also won four of the last five in all competitions.
