Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Live

Fulham have had a gap of eight days since their narrow loss to Newcastle United in the Premier League. The Cottagers will unlikely ring in many changes, as Marco Silva will put his belief in his existing crop of players.

Antonee Robinson will be back after serving his one-game suspension, while Neeskens Kebano has been ruled out for an elongated period. This game could come too soon for Shane Duffy, who will likely remain unavailable.

Bernd Leno will once again take his position in between the sticks. Issa Diop and Tim Ream should feature at the heart of the defence, while Robinson will join Kenny Tete in the full-back department, with the duo looking to remain compact at the back.

Joao Palhinha has been a mainstay since his summer arrival at Craven Cottage. And the Portuguese international will once again be needed in the middle of the pitch. Harrison Reed will be preferred alongside Palhinha to resist Tottenham’s midfield pressure.

Andreas Pereira has been in the thick of things. And the former Manchester United midfielder will once again be involved from the number 10 position. Bobby De Cordova-Reid and Willian will be the obvious choices on the flanks, and Aleksandar Mitrovic will lead the line.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha; De Cordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; Mitrovic

Tottenham Hotspur

Losing back-to-back big games would have been a matter of prestige. So Antonio Conte will be fancying a much-needed victory on Monday. Except for Bryan Gil and Lucas Moura, the Tottenham manager will have a fully fit squad to choose from against Fulham.

Despite his howler against Manchester City, Conte will not replace Hugo Lloris. And the French goalkeeper will be rearguarding Tottenham goal on Monday. Defensive lapses cost them the game against Manchester City, and there will be changes in the setup.

 

Clement Lenglet will be invited to partner Eric Dier and Cristian Romero in the three-man defence. Emerson Royal should be on the right side, while Ryan Sessegnon should replace Ivan Perisic on the left flank.

Conte admitted players like Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur might need rest due to fatigue issues. But given the importance of this game, Bentancur will pair up with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the midfield.

Kulusevski will keep his place on the right, while Richarlison should be introduced in a bid to make some impact from the left amid the struggles of Son Heung-min. Finally, Harry Kane will be leading the line for Tottenham against Fulham.

Probable Lineup: (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Richarlison
