Fulham host Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night knowing that a victory will see them leapfrog them into the top 5 of the English Premier League.
Fulham’s four-match EPL winning streak was halted last time out as they fell to a 1-0 loss to Newcastle, leaving them in 7th with 31 points.
Tottenham on the other hand remain in fifth place with 33 points despite back to back defeats to Arsenal and Manchester City.
Not since 2012 have Fulham managed to win 3 consecutive home matches in the EPL, but only Newcastle and Man United have won at Craven Cottage this season.
Fulham are looking to win three consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since September 2012.
Antonio Conte’s side edged past Fulham 2-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season and have the better record going into this game.
Tottenham have won their last six away matches against Fulham and have a better record only against Aston Villa in this regard.
Can the hosts win yet another home game and jump into the top five teams in the English top flight or will Spurs find their footing and bounce back to winning ways?
