Fulham and Tottenham go head to head in the West The North London derby meets on Monday night to cap off another weekend of Premier League football.
Having lost their last two matches, Tottenham will take some hope after doing neighbors Arsenal a favor in chasing fourth place with a win over Manchester United on Sunday and leaving the Red Devils within reach if Anunio Conte’s side win here.
Fulham came to this after a narrow defeat by Newcastle last time out, but they must still retain some confidence from an impressive run of five straight wins in all competitions.
When those two players met in the reverse fixture at the start of September, Tottenham took all three points in a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Harry Kane.

Fulham team news

Long-term absentee Neeskens Kebano is the only confirmed absence.
Fulham expected lineup (4-2-3-1): lino. Titi, Diop, Riam, Robinson; Reed, Palineha; Cordova Reed, Pereira, and Willian; Mitrovic.
Tottenham team news
Antonio Conte has no new injury concerns ahead of this, with only Lucas Moura remaining on the sidelines.
Tottenham expected lineup (3-4-3): Loris. Romero, Dir, Lenglet; Doherty, Hojbjerg, Bentancourt, Perisic; Kulusevski, Ken, Son.
What Fulham have done well this season is beat the teams around and under them – which is weird but fun which includes Liverpool (draw 2-2) and Chelsea (beat 1-0). But it’s been a different story against teams in the top five, as they have lost every time so far.
Tottenham fall into that latter category and, despite losing twice in a row, have at least been good enough to go 2-0 ahead of Manchester City and have won 4-0 in most of their Premier League games not against a title challenger.
Prediction: Fulham 1-2 Tottenham
