TEAM FORM
Fulham - LWWLW --------- Spurs - WWLWD

Fourth place in the EPL could be ours's by the close of play on Saturday, when we make the short journey to face Fulham in a Premier League London derby.We put our Champions League fate back in our own hands by crushing Villa 4-0 last weekend, while the Cottagers fell to a 2-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Spurs
While Fulham's jaunt to the West Midlands last weekend was an unsuccessful one, we blew the race for Champions League football wide open, knocking down a few more walls of the crumbling Villa Park fortress with a four-star second-half display.

Strikes from Maddison and Johnson preceded a deserved John McGinn red card, which virtually extinguished the Lions' hopes of an improbable turnaround, and we made the result more emphatic in injury time through Son and Werner.

After failing to win any of our first seven games of 2024 by more than one goal, we boast a 7-1 aggregate scoreline from ourr last two fixtures with Villa and Crystal Palace and now sit just two points behind recent victims Aston Villa, who have played a game more.

With the Europa Conference League-competing Lions not in top-flight action again until Sunday, we will jump into the top four with maximum points at Craven Cottage, and we arrive on Fulham's turf having struck multiple goals in each of our last six Premier League away games dating back to the start of December.

Son and Maddison were on target as we eased to a 2-0 home win over Fulham earlier this season - our fourth straight top-flight victory against Silva's side - but we have already been left crestfallen at Craven Cottage once this season, losing our EFL Cup second-round encounter on penalties.


Fulham
The ruthless edge that Fulham showed in their recent wins over Bournemouth, Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion eluded them at Molineux last weekend, where they failed to grasp the close-range finish and an unfortunate Tom Cairney own goal gave Wolves a healthy cushion midway through the second half, and even though Alex Awobi found the mark deep into second-half injury time, it was too little too late for the Cottagers.

Silva was under no illusions that his side hit the self-destruct button at Molineux, where they were punished for profligacy and a sloppy second half, and an unspectacular end to the season awaits the 12th-placed Cottagers, who are 14 points clear of the relegation line and eight adrift of the European places.

A late charge for Europa Conference League football remains a mathematical possibility, but Silva's men should be content in mid-table obscurity between now and the end of the campaign and head into Saturday's derby having scored in each of their last six Premier League matches.


Furthermore, Fulham have accrued 25 of their 35 points this season at Craven Cottage, where they have triumphed over West Ham United (5-0) and Arsenal (2-1) in their last two Premier League London derbies, but they have never won three consecutive all-capital clashes at home in the top flight.

Team News

Our beating of Aston Villa was partially soured by another injury to pacy centre-back Micky van de Ven, who came off with a knee problem early in the second half, and the Dutchman is not expected to be involved in Saturday's game.

There is optimism that Van de Ven will make an immediate return after the international break, but January recruit Dragusin should benefit from his likely absence this weekend to earn his first Premier League start alongside Romero.

Sessegnon (hamstring), Forster (foot) and Solomon (knee) welcome Van de Ven to the sidelines, while Richarlison also missed the win over Villa with his knee injury, despite expressing confidence that he would recover in time for the trip to the West Midlands.
