It’s a battle for fifth place in the English Premier League on Monday when Fulham host Tottenham at Craven Cottage in London. Spurs hold the fifth spot in the Premier League table, two points ahead of Fulham. Both teams can score goals and sometimes struggle on the back end, so it could be an action-packed match. Both also come off losses to top-four teams.
Spurs have been one of the league’s top teams for several years, while the Cottagers are newly promoted. Tottenham have one league loss to Fulham since 2008 and are unbeaten in the past nine, winning seven. Tottenham pounded the Fulham net in the last meeting, outshooting the Cottagers and putting 10 of those shots on target. Spurs put more than 38% of their shots on frame, while Fulham opponents are on target almost 40% of the time. That’s the second-worst mark in the league, and the Cottagers have allowed the most shots. Kane scored one of the goals in the last meeting, and he leads the league in shots (69) and is second in attempts on target.
Despite the loss to Newcastle, the Cottagers should be confident playing at home against a poor defensive team. They defeated Chelsea before their setback to the Magpies, giving them confidence they can hang with the league’s traditional powers. Aleksandar Mitrovic spearheads a potent attack that can make up for any defensive deficiencies. The Serbian scored 43 goals in the Championship last season and has five over the past eight matches. He should be fired up to face a Spurs squad that yielded four second-half goals Thursday.
The Cottagers saw a four-match league win streak end with a 1-0 loss to Newcastle last Sunday. Spurs faced the top two teams in consecutive matches, losing 2-0 to league leader Arsenal last Sunday before a 4-2 setback to Manchester City on Thursday. Tottenham won the first meeting this season, 2-1, at Hotspur Stadium in September.
