Tip Fulham - Tottenham
Fulham will host Tottenham Hotspur in their second straight London Derby as they seek points to aid in their push for survival. They go to this game with 23 points, and in 18th place while the visitors are eighth in the standings, with 39 points. Fulham hold the most realistic chance for survival among the teams in the drop zone. They are three points below safety and with their performances lately, they may pull the great escape. In their last five matches, they’ve managed four clean sheets and scored four goals. Fulham played to a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace last time out, creating good openings but failed to score. With the return of Aleksandr Mitrovic, Scott Parker will have more options in attack and goals should start flowing. Fulham have two wins in their last five matches, but have lost just three in their last 15. A win here will be a big boost to Fulham as they are set to face Liverpool and Manchester City in tough back to back games after this. They have two straight clean sheets at home.
Tottenham are coming from two big wins and will hope they can start March the way they ended February. In their last league match, Spurs thrashed Burnley 4-0, after earlier having won by the same margin in Europe. Gareth Bale has hit top form for Spurs, and in the last four matches he has contributed to eight goals – scoring four and assisting as many. Lucas Moura has also chipped in with three goals but the focus mostly will be on Bale. Spurs have scored 13 goals in their last four matches but conceded six in their last five. They’re just recovering from a huge slump in the Premier League and go to this game with five losses in their last seven matches. In the last eight away matches, Spurs have managed one win and they head here with three straight away losses and have no clean sheet in seven away league matches. Giovani Lo Celso will miss this game with injury while Pierre Emil Hojbjerg is a doubt, having twisted his ankle in the dying minutes of the Burnley win.

Conclusion Fulham - Tottenham
This match ended in a 1-1 draw in January but with the targets being pushed for, it is unlikely we’ll have a similar score line. Spurs have been rampant in attack lately and will want to keep going against an organized Fulham. The hosts have been good defensively and will have to be at their best to stop this Spurs side, but in the visitors’ attacking form a win for them looks more likely.
