- Tottenham have won only one of their last eight away league assignments.
Fulham continue to gather points
Fulham added another point to their haul for the campaign at Crystal Palace on Sunday, pushing their unbeaten run to five matches in the process as the Cottagers’ push for survival continues to gather momentum.
In total, Scott Parker’s improving team have lost just once in eight league assignments since January in an impressive run that has allowed Fulham to cut the gap between them and Newcastle in 17th place to just three points.
The Cottagers might have taken maximum points at Selhurst Park on Sunday had they converted one of their 16 attempts against the Eagles, though their performance against Palace was the latest in a string of confident showings from Fulham.
Tottenham hit four
Tottenham notched four goals for the third time in four fixtures on Sunday, when a double from Gareth Bale helped them on their way to a 4-0 triumph against Burnley. Jose Mourinho’s charges also ran riot in both legs of their Europa League Last 32 tie with Wolfsberger, though hammering their subpar Austrian opponents wasn’t as impressive a feat as it might appear.
Sunday’s victory, which was only Spurs’ second in seven Premier League matches, has reopened the possibility of a late charge for a top-four finish this season, though five of Tottenham’s last six top-flight wins were secured at home and their problems on the road persist.
Both teams to score at Craven Cottage?
Fulham gave as good as they got in January when they last played Tottenham, when they matched their hosts for attempts (15 each) in an evenly contested 1-1 draw in North London.
The Cottagers are still playing with tons of self-belief two months on, and powered by a run of just one defeat in eight Premier League fixtures, they look ready to go toe-to-toe with their more illustrious opponents again on Thursday.
Tottenham’s only win in their last eight attempts on the road came against bottom club Sheffield United, and it’s worth noting that both teams found the net in five of those tussles.
The same market appeals for Thursday’s clash, while another 1-1 draw between the teams is our choice for a correct score prediction. Fulham’s tie with Spurs in January was one of ten draws in their last 15 matches, and the stubborn Cottagers can earn another share of the spoils this week.
