Scott Parker’s side remain in the bottom three, but they have now closed the gap to just three points and, with their goal difference better than Newcastle’s, they know a win here will be enough to move above the dotted line. A huge boost for the Cottagers has been their much-improved defence of late, with just one goal conceded in the last five after a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace at the weekend.
However, Spurs returned to winning ways themselves last time out with a 4-0 win over Burnley, with Gareth Bale shining in particular.
Jose Mourinho’s side are still hopeful of securing European football next term, but they are six points off the top four with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton all above them too, so it’s far from a straight-forward task for them to climb the table in a season of such inconsistency.

Tottenham - 24/23
There’s a lot at stake for both teams and it might lead to both of them being somewhat more wary than usual. Spurs’ greater attacking options should see them create enough to take a positive result, but Fulham have been far more resilient of late and will see a point as another good step to safety. Fulham 1-1 Spurs.
