Match Preview

  • Wolves’ late equaliser last time out extended Tottenham Hotspur’s winless Premier League (PL) run to four games (D2, L2), and they’ve now dropped a league-high nine points after conceding beyond the 80th minute this term. However, Spurs have an opportunity to end 2020 on a high as they are unbeaten in their last seven PL London derbies (W3, D4).
  • Tottenham have been solid here this season, and are unbeaten in ten of their last 11 competitive home outings (W7, D3, L1 in 90 minutes). However, Spurs have kept just one clean sheet in their previous six home games versus promoted sides (W4, D1, L1), with five of those featuring exactly one first-half goal.
  • Visiting Fulham will definitely enter 2021 in the bottom three should they fail to win here, thanks to their disappointing December form (D4, L1). A rare clean sheet may be necessary for a good result, as Fulham haven’t scored 2+ goals vs Spurs in 13 PL meetings (W1, D2, L10) and also possess a PL record run of 13 straight defeats in London derbies ahead of this.
  • The first goal could be fatal too, as Fulham are one of just three PL sides yet to pick up a point when conceding first (L8), something they’ve done four times on the road. Although never losing when scoring first, Fulham haven’t been good value for a lead on their PL travels either (W1, D2).
  • Players to watch: Spurs’ Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane are the PL’s most potent combination, assisting each other for a combined 12 league goals. Although not quite so prolific, Bobby Decordova-Reid is the only Fulham player credited with a goal across their five games in December so far.
  • Hot stat: Spurs have lost just one of their last 11 final league games of a calendar year (W7, D3, L1) – however that did come at home vs promoted opposition (2018 – 3-1 vs Wolves).
