Tottenham Hotspur will be seeking a second win in a row in the Premier League when they head to Fulham on Thursday night - but they haven’t managed back-to-back victories in the top flight since November.
Jose Mourinho’s team have been woefully inconsistent, like so many teams in the top half chasing Champions League football, but a 4-0 win over Burnley at the weekend could act as a reset for them, with Gareth Bale finding scoring form of late.
There’s still plenty to do with Spurs sat in eighth place ahead of the midweek matches, but there remains optimism that they can earn the points needed to climb the table.
As for Fulham, their recent five-match unbeaten run has seem them claw back points on the teams outside the relegation zone, with any win here enough to lift them outside the relegation zone at last. They have conceded only once in those five matches, after drawing 0-0 with Crystal Palace recently.

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.
