Antonio Conte’s side have had a solid start to the season, winning three of their five games and are yet to lose. Although performances have not been perfect, you would expect them to get better as fitness levels improve, but Conte will certainly be happy with the results so far.

Tottenham endured a difficult outing against David Moyes’ West Ham in midweek. An own goal from Thilo Kehrer gave them the lead, but they really struggled to put any chances away themselves.

An equalising goal from Tomas Soucek saw the game play out a draw, a game which Conte will be hoping to better as they face another tough battle against Fulham.

The newly promoted side have massively impressed so far this season, gaining great results against the likes of Liverpool, Brighton, and Brentford. Their only loss came against unbeaten Arsenal, showing Marco Silva’s side are no push over this season.

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored once again in their last game against Brighton, where they won 2-1. An impressive win considering Graham Potter's side's form this season. Mitrovic will certainly be hoping to play a huge part this weekend and help gain yet another great result.

Both have shown they are hard to beat this season, so this set is to be a very tasty affair.

Team News

Tottenham

Oliver Skipp could play a part after returning to the bench against West Ham, most likely on the bench once more.

A big boost for Conte is Cristian Romero's return, who could feature on the bench after recovering from an injury suffered against Chelsea.

Lucas Moura is set to miss out through an injury to his tendon. His spot could be taken by Bryan Gil who has recovered from a small injury.

There is also hope Rodrigo Bentancur will play after suffering a head injury.

Fulham

The main concerns for Fulham are long-term injuries for both Harry Wilson and Manor Solomon, both of which may not be available for at least the next month.

Apart from this, all first-team players are available for selection against Tottenham.

Likely Lineups

Tottenham

Lloris; Royal, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Perisic; Hojbjerg, Bentancur; Richarlison, Son, Kane

Fulham

Leno; Tete, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha; Pereira, Decordova-Reid, Kebano; Mitrovic

Key Players

Tottenham - Harry Kane

Tottenham’s star striker has continued his great goalscoring form with four goals in five Premier League games this season. His goals alone have gained his side seven points this season, showing how valuable an asset he is for Conte this season. He is sure to be a big handful for the Fulham defenders this Saturday!

Fulham - Aleksandar Mitrovic

There were plenty of doubts about whether the Croatian could cut it in the Premier League, after previously failing to hit the levels that he constantly hit in the Championship. However, he has put doubt to bed with a great start to the season, scoring five goals in five games, a return better than his opposing striker Kane.
