Merry Christmas everyone. I got a cracking present from the Mrs, the new Spurs Player by Player book, signed for me by one Ricky Villa!
I quite fancy us to get a result tomorrow, Hodgson has Fulham playing as a solid unit but I think they will come unstuck soon and it’s more likely to happen away from Craven Cottage. Their home form was always good, there was just a blip under Sanchez. They are yet to win away this season.
Spurs could be struggling at the back with both Woodgate and King facing late fitness tests. Darren Bent and Jermaine Jenas should be back.
Fulham are without Zoltan Gera.
Spurs have won 5 of the last 10 league games but went down 2-1 at the hands of Newcastle on Sunday.
Fulham are on their best run of form for some time but they are yet to win away from home this season.
Head To Head
Fulham have only ever won twice at the Lane in 29 attempts. If they were to win, it would be only the 2nd time in their history they have completed a league double over Tottenham.
Other points to note
Tottenham have won their last 4 Boxing Day fixtures, Fulham are 0 form 4.
Fulham are managing to go lockdown for 0-0 away from home but there is only so long they can use these tactics and not score before they come unstuck. I fancy Luka Modric to pick them apart tomorrow and Spurs to run out comfortable winners.
Luka Modric 1st Goal Scorer @ 10/1 with Betfred
Tottenham to win 3-1 @ 14/1 with BlueSq
I can’t see it being all that easy today mabs. Fulham are becoming a very hard team to beat and we seem to have lost the initial spark and lukcy touch Harry brought, it’s back to rolling our sleeves up and putting some points on the board.
