Spurs are back at Wembley! Their new stadium is still incomplete, so Mauricio Pochettino’s men return to their temporary home to face Fulham. They enjoyed a hard-fought 2-1 win at Newcastle last weekend, as they continue their quest to prove that their lack of new signings will not hinder them.

Fulham suffered an opening day defeat against Crystal Palace at Craven Cottage. Despite having the better of much of the play, they were well and truly ‘Hodged’, as Palace simply took their chances better than the home side. It was a tough first lesson for Slavisa Jokanovic.

Spurs v Fulham Betting Tips & Preview

Is it time for Harry Kane to break his August curse?

Spurs are back at Wembley! Their new stadium is still incomplete, so Mauricio Pochettino’s men return to their temporary home to face Fulham. They enjoyed a hard-fought 2-1 win at Newcastle last weekend, as they continue their quest to prove that their lack of new signings will not hinder them.

Fulham suffered an opening day defeat against Crystal Palace at Craven Cottage. Despite having the better of much of the play, they were well and truly ‘Hodged’, as Palace simply took their chances better than the home side. It was a tough first lesson for Slavisa Jokanovic.

 

Their trip to Spurs will likely see that lesson continue. There seems to be a consensus that because Pochettino didn’t sign anyone, Spurs have suddenly become a worse team. In reality, they have kept all of their key players and remain the same excellent side they have been for a number of years now. The lack of extra bodies may come back to haunt them later in the season, but that’s not relevant for this match.

Spurs’ record at Wembley was strong last season, losing only to Chelsea and Manchester City, and their superior quality will tell against Fulham. I can see a comfortable home win.

There is not much value in betting on a Spurs win, but backing a home clean sheet may be the way to go on this one. Aleksandar Mitrovic will be his usual combative self, but defenders of Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez’s ability will likely nullify that particular threat.

 

We now come to the curious case of Harry Kane. England captain, the best number nine in the world, back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots and a World Cup Golden Boot…and he still can’t score goals in August.

This bizarre anomaly of his already spectacular goalscoring record surely cannot continue, and I see it ending on Saturday. There’s no rhyme or reason to the issue. It could be a mental thing, or just bad luck. But you cannot keep Harry Kane out of the goals for too long.

He will be absolutely desperate to bag an August goal to dispel this question mark – if you can even call it a question mark – from his game. I’m backing the England skipper to score first.

 

Spurs found themselves leading after 30 minutes in seven of their home matches last season. The fluidity of Eriksen, Alli and Kane’s link-up play often hits teams hard and fast. It was a similar story at Newcastle last week, with Vertonghen and Alli scoring their goals after 8 and 18 minutes respectively.

Fulham have good memories of Wembey after their play-off final triumph against Aston Villa, but Spurs’ results at the ground rapidly improved after their sticky start there a couple of seasons ago.

If you fancy a quick Spurs goal or two, and for them to be leading after 30 minutes, you will get a nice return.
