Seeking revenge on the only team to have bested US this season, We welcome Fulham to our headquarters for Monday's Premier League London derby. We saw one of our route to silverware closed off with a penalty-shootout defeat to the Cottagers in the second round of the EFL Cup, but nine points separate us in the embryonic rankings

Spurs
Barring our 12-yard heartache in August - which officially condemned us to a full 16 years without lifting a major trophy aloft - we remain the team to beat in the Premier League under Postecoglou, who was bestowed with a second successive Manager of the Month honour for his September exploits.

We would seemingly continue our streak of scoring at least two goals in every Premier League game under the Australian during a trip to Luton Town two weekends ago, but profligacy reared its ugly head in a first half which also saw Bissouma dismissed for two bookable offences, the second being a foolish dive right under the referee's nose.

Nevertheless, shrewd summer signing Van de Ven met Maddison’s cutback in the second half to propel us victory, one which saw us enter the second international break of the season top of the table on 20 points, clear of bitter adversaries Arsenal by virtue of goals scored.

Results elsewhere this weekend have caused us to drop to fourth before Monday's London derby, though, and the only points that we have dropped this season have come against two of our neighbours in Brentford and Arsenal, sharing the spoils in a pair of four-goal spectaculars.

However, snapping that pattern to prevail would see Postecoglou break a new Premier League record with an all-time high 23 points from his first nine games in charge – Guus Hiddink and Mike Walker both achieved 22 - and we host Fulham having netted in each of our last 12 top-flight home affairs. A win on Monday night will put us back on top of the Table, 2 points clear of the rest with everyone having played 9 games.


Fulham
The whole of Craven Cottage stood as one during Fulham's 3-1 victory over Sheffield United a fortnight ago, where a sickening leg injury to Blades defender Chris Basham - who was comforted by Tim ream while other players could not bear the sight - overshadowed the Cottagers' win over their newly-promoted foes.

Both defences remained on top heading into the break, but Fulham turned up the heat against the shaken Blades in the second half and came up trumps courtesy of strikes from Bobby Decordova-Reid and Willian alongside an unfortunate Wes Foderingham own goal, as Tom Cairney's rocket hit the woodwork deflected into the net off the goalkeeper's back.

Antonee Robinson joined Foderingham in Saturday's own-goals club, but the Cottagers left-back's blushes were eventually spared as Fulham continued their sequence of winning one then failing to win one - a statistic which does not make for pleasant reading ahead of Monday.

Twelfth spot in the table belongs to Fulham amid their wholly inconsistent start, but the Cottagers travel across the capital with only one win to show from four away games in the 2023-24 season so far, and even then their opening 1-0 success over Everton was fortuitous.


By holding their nerve from 12 yards in the EFL Cup, Fulham ended a nine-game winless run against us, but not since a 1-0 triumph in the last knockings of the 2012-13 season have the Cottagers got one over the Lilywhites in the top flight - ex-Spurs man Dimitar Berbatov came back to haunt White Hart Lane on that occasion.
