Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson has claimed that he cannot see Fulham matching the 1-1 draw that they got at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in January if the same Spurs that demolished Burnley on Sunday, turn up at Craven Cottage tomorrow night.
There was plenty of doom and gloom surrounding Tottenham after their 2-1 defeat to West Ham two weeks ago, which was the club’s fifth defeat in their last six Premier League matches.
It seemed like a top-four finish was slipping away from the grasps of Jose Mourinho’s men but two consecutive 4-0 wins over Wolfsberger and Burnley have brought back some positivity around the club.
After their demolition of the Clarets on Sunday, Spurs now sit just six points off West Ham in fourth with a game in hand over the Hammers.
The fact that Gareth Bale and Dele Alli have shown glimpses of their old-selves has served as an additional boost for the North Londoners.
While Fulham also come into the clash on Thursday unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches, Lawrenson believes Tottenham will have too much for the Cottagers should Kane, Son and Bale turn up.
The pundit told BBC Sport: “Tottenham were very impressive against Burnley on Sunday and if they can repeat that performance, with Gareth Bale, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane all fully fit and playing well, they are going to have too much for Fulham too.
“I know Fulham have had a few decent results in recent weeks, but it’s hard to see them matching the draw they managed with Spurs in January, unless we see a dip from Jose Mourinho’s side.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Fulham are one of the form teams in the league and will certainly not be pushovers. However, Scott Parker’s men will attack us instead of sitting back and potentially leave space at the back for the likes of Kane, Bale and Son to exploit. So, I can see there being plenty of goals in this game.
