In Monday’s Premier League London derby, Tottenham Hotspur welcomes Fulham to their headquarters with the goal of exacting revenge. They are the only team to have defeated them this season. In the second round of the EFL Cup, Ange Postecoglou’s team lost to the Cottagers on penalties, ending their hopes of winning trophies. In the embryonic standings, the capital counterparts are still separated by nine points.
Tottenham vs Fulham
Tottenham takes on Fulham, who are currently in 13th place, in a London derby with the goal of returning to the top of the Premier League. The hosts are ranked fourth with 20 points, while the visitors are ranked 13th with 11 points, for this Monday’s game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. This round, Spurs led the standings at first, but they fell as Man City and Liverpool triumphed and Arsenal drew. But with a victory, they might close the gap to a single point and regain the top spot in the rankings.
Fortunately for the home crowd, Tottenham has been playing some incredible football lately, winning four and drawing one of their previous five Premier League games. They should be optimistic about their chances because they have won all three of their games played here this season.
With a win, Fulham can move into the top eight and will use this as an opportunity to practice against future leaders. Fulham defeated Sheffield United 3-1 before the international break. With the exception of a 2-0 loss to Chelsea, they have now won two and drawn their previous four league games.
They have only scored eight goals this season, which is tied for the fifth-lowest total, thus the task now would be to maintain increasing their scoring rate. The Cottagers need to improve their road performance while they try to get their scoring back on track.
Spurs will have an opportunity to recuperate from the break by playing on Monday, as several of their players sustained injuries while traveling for international competition. The hosts are heavy favorites to retake the top spot with three points, even though it’s likely that they will have lost their position by the time this game begins.
It feels unfair to point out weaknesses in Spurs’ start because of the team’s positive vibes, but they are still having some problems on defense. In their previous five league games, both teams have scored; prior to that, they drew 1-1 in the Carabao Cup against Fulham.
Despite having a respectable scoring record in this matchup, Fulham haven’t scored more than once in any of their previous 17 Premier League encounters with Tottenham. Furthermore, Spurs appear poised to maintain their excellent start to the season, as they have won 13 of the previous 15 Premier League meetings between the two teams.
The hosts should be able to overcome any defensive problems because they have scored two goals or more in seven of their eight games thus far.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
