Analysis of match
Tottenham had a terrible start to the season this season with a few top reinforcements with Mourinho on the bench, and at one point they were also the first-placed team in the league. The team played open attacking football, which gave results in “small” matches, and in addition, they went further in the Europa League, although they played with reserves in that competition.
Still, a somewhat heavier schedule and a “return of Mourinho to factory settings” and a game of counter-attacks have moved Tottenham away from first place behind which they are now six positions and six points behind.
They don’t know about winning the last four Premier League games where they have lost to Liverpool and Leicester and shared points with the Wolves and Palace. However, apart from the meeting with Leicester, Tottenham provided quality games.
We could see how good the Tottenham bench is in the Europa League, and it is the players from the bench who will play a key role in the next seven days. It’s just too tight a schedule in England for the holidays and all teams have to rotate a lot which should bring extra points to Tottenham as they are one of the three teams in the league with the highest quality reserves. For this match, I can’t count only on Lo Celso while Bale’s performance is in question.
Fulham is a team that has quickly returned to the company of the best.
They managed to secure a return to the Premier League last season after the play-offs and the final in which they defeated Brentford in a city derby.
However, their stay in the league is under great question, considering that they are in a dangerous zone and they are one of the lowest quality teams in the league.
Fulham had a desperate start to the new season, but after a few reinforcements in the last days of the transfer window, they started to provide somewhat better games and suffered only four defeats in the last 10 matches.
They have not been defeated in the last four matches and it is evident that they will be one of the teams that will fight to stay in the league, unlike the very beginning of the season where many thought they would be in the Championship for the new year.
The big problem for Fulham is the last line that has received 23 goals so far, although they have played with five players back in many matches. Today they play against one of the best teams in the league and there is little chance that they will manage to keep them.
In addition, Fulham is one of the teams in England that cannot boast of quality substitutions which should play a big role in this match. They cannot count only on the defenders of Tete and Kongolo for this match.
