On Sunday we have a new London derby in round 23 of the Premier League between Fulham and Tottenham. Fulham are on the 19th place in the standings, five points from the 17th position. At the moment, Tottenham are on a position of winning the bronze medals, while the hopes for the title seems like a mirage.
Fulham ended 2018 with five won points in three games, and just one conceded goal, which gave hope for the team’s fans. However, the new year began far from amazingly after the team lost against Arsenal and Burnley, and were knocked out from the FA Cup by Oldham. Tottenham ended December in the worst possible way after a loss versus Wolverhampton but started the year with victories in the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup. In the last round, Spurs have created many chances for a goal but lost their home game against Manchester United with 0-1.
85% of all points of Fulham have been won in the fixtures at home. The Cottagers have lost only once in the last two months on Craven Cottage. However, they will now have to play against the best away team in the league – ten wins in 12 matches. At first glance, the prediction for this game seems obvious, but the leading goalscorers of Spurs will not play in the next few fixtures of the team. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have scored overall 22 goals since the start of the season.
Our prediction for this game will be different from this of the bookmakers. The London derbies are unpredictable. Fulham need every point that they could get and both teams have injured players.
