35′ WIDE!!! Fulham showcase their attacking prowess and nearly level matters through Loftus-Cheek. Tete picked out the Chelsea loanee on the edge of the box, and Loftus-Cheek’s bicycle kick has narrowly missed the bottom corner. Lloris was anxious by that strike!

32′ Kane is the second-highest goalscorer in London derbies in Premier League history with 36 goals to his name, with only Thierry Henry netting more with 43.

30′ KANE! The England skipper misses a header at the near post, and Fulham get lucky on that occasion. Aurier’s cross looks to have taken a deflection off a defender just before Kane was about to head home. That touch has put him off, and he has skied his strike over the bar.

27′ Mourinho can relax now after a flat start from his side. Hopefully, they push for a second goal before half-time, but Fulham have shown they will be no pushovers if the first 30 minutes are anything to go by.



Tottenham Hotspur

25′ Reguilon was praised by several of his team-mates after that cross, and it is easy to see why. His delivery had enough pace to allow Kane to guide his header into the corner.

H. Kane


Tottenham Hotspur

25′ GOAAAALLLLL!!!!! TOTTENHAM 1-0 FULHAM – Kane breaks the deadlock, and the pressure on the Fulham goal finally proves too much. Reguilon delivered a delicious cross into the box, and Kane stooped low to head into the bottom corner. A superb header from Spurs’ star man.

24′ WHAT A SAVE!!! Son cannot believe he has not scored, but Areola denies him for the second time in this match. The Spurs forward stayed onside and asked for the cross to be played to the near post, he has thrown everything behind his diving header, but it is not enough to beat Areola.

22′ It may have taken them 20 minutes, but Spurs are slowly taking control of this match. Winks and Hojbjerg are starting to break up any Fulham attacks, and the pressure could soon tell.

20′ Dier goes close with the free-kick after seeing his shot blocked by the Fulham wall. However, Spurs failed to produce anything from the resulting corner, and it remains 0-0.

A. Zambo Anguissa

Yellow Card


18′ Anguissa is shown a yellow card for a strong challenge on the edge of the box.

18′ Son is denied at the near post thanks to a stunning save from Areola. The forward latched onto a cross from Aurier, only to see his effort blocked. In the aftermath, Fulham have conceded a free-kick on the edge of the box. 

17′ SAVE!!! Anguissa stings the palms of Lloris with a powerful drive from inside the box. He turned past Sissoko far too easily, but Lloris was on hand to punch the ball away.

16′ Dier has told the physios to go back to the bench, and he has limped back into the box to defend a corner.

15′ Spurs have an injury to deal with here as Dier goes down. He was initially off the pitch, but he has rolled back over the touchline in order to receive treatment. 

13′ After a game of head tennis, the danger is cleared, but Fulham are growing into this match.

12′ Fulham win a corner…

10′ Mourinho has named three holding midfielders in his team, and it may come back to bite him if Spurs fail to bring Son and Kane into the game.

7′ Even though they are in the relegation zone, Fulham have started well here. They are trying to dictate the tempo of the match and look confident on the ball.

5′ CLOSE! Reguilon falls to his knees in frustration after missing two chances to score. The first effort was going well wide, but it hit Andersen and rebounded back to him. He stayed alert and drilled his second shot towards the top corner, only to clear the crossbar. Big chance that for Spurs!

3′ Fulham register the first shot of the match, but it is tame at best from Adarabioyo as he fails to generate any power at the back post. The visitors won a free-kick which caused Spurs problems, but the defender did not know too much about his shot, before Lloris dived on the loose ball.

2′ Tottenham will wear their traditional white and blue strip this evening, with Fulham in their all-yellow away kit.

1′ We are underway!

The two teams are on the field and we are moments away from kick-off in north London.

Tottenham have won ten of their last 11 Premier League games against Fulham, with their only defeat coming way back in 2013.

Mourinho makes ten changes to the team that beat Marine 5-0 in the FA Cup on Sunday. The likes of Kane, Son, Lloris, Dier all return to the fold, while Alli and Bale are on the bench. Parker makes six alterations to the team that battled bast Queens Park Rangers, with top scorer Bobby Decordova-Reid returning to the starting XI. However, there is no place in the squad for striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

SUBS: Joe Bryan, Tim Ream, Josh Onomah, Michael Hector, Aboubakar Kamara, Terence Kongolo, Marek Rodák, Ademola Lookman, Neeskens Kebano.

FULHAM (3-5-2): Alphonse Areola; Ola Aina, Joachim Andersen, Tosin Adarabioyo; Kenny Tete, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Harrison Reed, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Antonee Robinson; Ivan Cavaleiro, Bobby De Cordova-Reid.

SUBS: Toby Alderweireld, Gareth Bale, Carlos Vinicius, Joe Hart, Erik Lamela, Matt Doherty, Ben Davies, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli.

TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon; Harry Winks, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg; Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane.

Mourinho’s side come into the game with a real spring in their step after winning four of their last five matches. They have kept three clean sheets in that time, while Fulham have also not lost in any of their previous five, with four of those games ending in a draw.

Despite the late notice, Spurs will be confident of overcoming the Cottagers, with the two sides sitting at opposite ends of the table. Tottenham can climb as high as third with a victory, while Fulham are hoping to escape the bottom three with a win on the road.

Good evening and welcome to our coverage of the Premier League meeting between Tottenham and Fulham. Spurs had initially been prepared to do battle with Aston Villa, but a late fixture change earlier this week sees them face Scott Parker’s side.
