Tottenham – Mourinho seeking another home win to nil?

Until Monday, Jose Mourinho had laid out preparations for a potentially troublesome fixture away to Aston Villa, who were in reasonable form and could boast a memorable victory over champions Liverpool at Villa Park in 2020/21. Now, Tottenham (W8 D5 L3) are presented with an altogether different proposition, handed a home fixture with a Fulham side third from bottom in the standings and in middling form.

The show must go on, as they say. Tottenham have benefited the most from this episode. Their upcoming opponents were unaware they even had a midweek fixture until late notice, and it is now down to Spurs to cash in. Just three teams have collected more points at home this season than them, whose record reads W4 D2 L2 having lost only one of the last seven league games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Each of the last four home fixtures for Tottenham have seen one team find the back of the net, in a run that includes to nil victories against Arsenal, Leeds and even Man City but also a 2-0 defeat by Leicester. Meanwhile, Spurs’ record on their own patch versus Fulham makes for similarly encouraging reading, having won nine and lost only two of the fourteen Premier League meetings held in North London.

Fulham – Parker would settle for fifth straight stalemate?

To describe the current situation Fulham (W2 D5 L8) now find themselves in as far from ideal would be a huge understatement. Notified roughly 48 hours in advance that his team would, in fact, be in action during the week, Scott Parker must now prepare his players for a daunting visit to capital rivals Tottenham. It comes four days after his side were taken into extra-time by QPR in the FA Cup third round.

Parker did ring the changes on Saturday, however, had he of known what was to transpire the former Spurs midfielder may have left his entire first-team out, which was basically what opposite number Jose Mourinho did 24 hours later. As it is, Fulham must now gear themselves up for their first Premier League fixture since Boxing Day, having seen subsequent matches with Tottenham and Burnley postponed.

That Boxing Day encounter being a dour affair at Craven Cottage against Southampton that ended goalless – a fourth consecutive draw for The Cottagers, who had only recorded one across their opening eleven league games. Away from home they have won just once in seven attempts (W1 D2 L4), a 2-1 win at Leicester, scoring four in the six away matches that followed their 4-3 defeat at Leeds in September.
