Former England striker Michael Owen has given his prediction ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s match at Fulham this afternoon.
Tottenham make the trip across London to take on the Premier League newcomers in Craven Cottage and will have to do so without some key players.
Harry Kane misses the match due to the ankle injury he picked up in the defeat against Manchester United and is not expected back in training until early March.
Heung-min Son is on international duty at the Asian Cup with South Korea and could be away from the club until at least February 2nd.
Twelve months ago, if you had asked a Spurs fan if they would consider an absent Moussa Sissoko a blow, they would have thought you were mad. However, the Frenchman’s drastic upturn in form has seen him become a key player, but will miss the next two weeks with a groin problem.
Despite the injury concerns, Owen believes that Spurs will have enough to get the win.
He told BetVictor: “Spurs have won more away games than any other side in the PL (10) this season and I would be surprised if they didn’t add to that impressive record at Craven Cottage. Mauricio Pochettino must do without the injured Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, who is on Asian Cup duty, but they have a strong enough squad to cope.
“Fulham did win their last home league game, but they have lost nine of their last 10 PL games with Spurs. I expect the visitors to take all three points – even without the England skipper.
