Tottenham Hotspur are set to face Fulham in the Premier League following their rampant win against Burnley in their last outing.
Tottenham Hotspur have been on a rather inconsistent run of form since the start of the new year. Jose Mourinho’s side currently are basking in fine goal-scoring form, however, defensively they have not been all that solid. In their past five fixtures in all competitions, the Lilywhites have conceded two defeats.
Nonetheless, their latest run out in the Premier League against Burnely was certainly a morale booster for the north London side. A retro Gareth Bale performance that saw the Welshman grab two goals along with one each from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura saw Spurs glide through Sean Dyche’s team with a 4-0 win on home soil.
The victory against Burnley also marked Hugo Lloris’s 100th Premier League clean sheet. Against Fulham, the Frenchman is once again expected to start in goal to continue his impressive form. Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez are expected to form the centre-back partnership. The latter finally seems to have found his groove after a rather poor performance against Manchester City.
Sergio Reguilon is back in action for Tottenham after putting in a fine performance against Burnely. The former Real Madrid left-back will start ahead of Ben Davies, meanwhile, Serge Aurier will remain as the indispensable start since Matt Doherty has failed to live up to the mark.
In the midfield, Jose Mourinho might prefer to give Moussa Sissoko a start as a holding midfielder alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. The Frenchman has recently recovered from an injury and a start against Fulham could be the perfect opportunity to get him back into sync with the first team.
With Sissoko and Hojbjerg as the two holding midfielders, Tanguy Ndombele would be slotted into the eleven as the central attacking midfielder. Dele Alli has been in fine form too, however, Ndombele seems to be the better option since he’s been a much more consistent performer this season.
The attacking trio would see Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Gareth Bale. With Bale finally looking fitter than ever and well settled, this front three is ready to take the Premier League by a storm. It will be an exciting treat for neutrals and Tottenham fans if this front three once again connects against Scott Parker’s side.
