Another stop-start display saw Spurs held by West Ham in midweek, dropping points for the second time this season in the process, and they will want to avoid a repeat performance against a team expected to be fighting at the opposite end of the table.
Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has proven he can score against the best, though, so the visitors can fancy their chances of pulling off another impressive result.
Date, kick-off time and venue

Tottenham vs Fulham prediction
Tottenham have been grinding out wins for an impressive start to the season, but Fulham have proven themselves to be no pushovers.
Draws with Liverpool and Wolves, wins over Brentford and Brighton and a narrow loss to Arsenal is a fine start for themselves.
They have strengthened well, bringing in three players on deadline day alone, but Spurs should have enough about them to see out the win.
Spurs to win 3-1.
