Tottenham host Fulham in a London derby on Saturday as Spurs aim to keep their unbeaten record intact, but Fulham will go level on points with them if they secure a shock win.
Who would’ve thought that!?
STREAM LIVE TOTTENHAM v FULHAM
Antonio Conte’s side has won three and drawn two of their opening five games, and they were a little lucky to grab a point at West Ham in midweek as they were below par. Still, there’s a newfound resilience about this Spurs side as they keep grinding and are extremely tough to play.
Fulham beat Brighton midweek as Aleksandar Mitrovic continues his fine form back in the Premier League. The Cottagers pushed Arsenal in a crazy late defeat at the Emirates Stadium last weekend. Marco Silva’s side will also fancy their chances of pushing Tottenham to their limits this weekend.

Here’s everything you need for Tottenham vs Fulham.
Spurs are looking solid early in the season, but Antonio Conte’s side hasn’t hit top gear yet. They haven’t gotten close to it, and they’re still unbeaten. Harry Kane looks dangerous every game, but Heung-min Son is struggling to support him and has yet to score in the Premier League this season. Still, Tottenham looks like they will be tough to beat and have the experience to cement a spot in the top four.
Fulham has surprised everyone as Marco Silva’s side has only one defeat in their opening five games (that late loss at Arsenal, which they were far from happy with), and they’ve been much more aggressive and persistent on their return to the Premier League. They look the best of the new boys, and they already have eight points this season.
In-form players to keep an eye on
Harry Kane has scored three goals in his last three outings, and he set up Spurs’ goal at West Ham last time out (it went down as an own goal) as he continues to deliver in key moments. Eric Dier is having a decent start to the season and has stepped up with Cristian Romero being out injured in recent weeks.
Fulham’s star has been Mitrovic, but Kebano on the wing, plus new signings Andreas Pereira and Joao Palhinha have both been excellent in midfield. Also, a shoutout to USMNT veteran Tim Ream who has been rock solid at center back.
Tottenham team news, injuries, lineup options
Rodrigo Bentancur and Cristian Romero are battling to be fit for this game as the former is recovering from a concussion, while Romero is almost back from a hip injury. Bryan Gil could return, while Lucas Moura is out after a calf injury. Will Richarlison start this game to give Son a rest?
Fulham team news, injuries, lineup options
Harry Wilson remains out, while summer signing Manor Solomon suffered a severe knee injury on his Fulham debut against Liverpool and is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Fulham was busy late in the transfer window as Willian, and Layvin Kurzawa will be key additions to their squad.
