    Can Tottenham Build on Burnley Victory at Fulham?

    There are three fixtures to be played in the English Premier League on Thursday the 4th of March, including the meeting between Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur at Craven Cottage.

    The hosts come into the match in 18th place on 23 points while the visitors are in 8th place on 39 points.

    Fulham come into the game having picked up a point in a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace on the weekend. It was a decent point away from home as they attempt to move out of the relegation zone and the draw means Fulham are undefeated in their last 5 Premier League fixtures. In fact, Fulham have lost only one of their last 8 games.

    However, despite their good recent unbeaten run Fulham have won only 2 of their last 12 matches in all competitions. Both victories have come recently in the Premier League and were away to Everton and at home against Sheffield United.

    Home form in the Premier League shows Fulham are undefeated in their 2 most recent games but have won only one of their last 9 at Craven Cottage.

    Trends show Fulham have failed to score more than a single goal in each of their last 8 home Premier League matches and will need to improve on that if they are to win this game.

    Tottenham Hotspur come into the match having recorded a good 4-0 home victory over Burnley on the weekend. Gareth Bale was particularly impressive in that match and could be the man to lift Spurs into European contention this season.

    That was the first victory for Spurs in 3 Premier League games having previously lost against Manchester City and West Ham United away from home.

    In fact, Spurs have won only 2 of their 7 most recent Premier League fixtures and both victories came at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    Away form in the Premier League shows Spurs have lost each of their last 3 matches, including a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion.

    Trends show in 6 of their most recent matches in all competitions, Spurs have seen over 2.5 goals scored. They have struggled to keep clean sheets away from home and have conceded at least one goal in each of their last 7 away Premier League games.

    Team news and Fulham are without goalkeeper Marek Rodak and midfielder Tom Cairney. Every other player is fit and available, with Scott Parker unlikely to make many changes to the team that played on the weekend.

    Tottenham Hotspur are without Giovani Lo Celso, who has a hamstring injury. The Argentine is the only player unavailable and Jose Mourinho will be tempted to keep the same starting XI from the win at the weekend.

    Spurs have been far from convincing defensively away from home in the Premier League recently and Fulham will fancy their chances of scoring.

    However, if Spurs produce the same level of attacking play shown on the weekend, they should have enough to win this match with both teams scoring.
