Fulham can stun wounded Spurs

Fulham are in desperate need of three points as they attempt to avoid relegation and they could get them on Sunday when Tottenham visit Craven Cottage.

Claudio Ranieri’s team could not have hoped to play Spurs at a better time as the visitors will be without the injured Harry Kane while Son Heung-min is on Asian Cup duty with South Korea.

In addition, Moussa Sissoko, Lucas Moura, Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama are all currently sidelined while Mauricio Pochettino will also have one eye on next week’s Carabao Cup semi-final, second-leg clash at Chelsea.

Fulham to win and both to score @ 33/4

Fulham may be five points away from safety but that is largely because of their abysmal away record – they have picked up just two points from a possible 36 on their travels – while they have only lost three times at home.

Fulham remain defensively fragile even though Ranieri replaced Slavisa Jokanovic almost 10 weeks ago. They have conceded six goals in their last two matches and have the worst goal difference in the top flight.

Man City to win by three goals @ 33/10

That may change after this weekend’s fixtures as Huddersfield, who have a -24 goal difference which is currently five better than the Cottagers, host Manchester City.

The Terriers, who are managerless after parting company with David Wagner on Monday, are eight points away from safety after taking just one point from their last nine games.

Pep Guardiola’s side thrashed Town 6-1 in August and although it may not be quite so one-sided at the John Smith’s Stadium, it is difficult to see anything but another big victory for City on Sunday.

City have won their last three top-flight games as well as beating Rotherham United in the FA Cup and Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup, notching an incredible 24 goals in those five encounters.

With Guardiola set to rotate his squad, young midfielder Phil Foden is good value at 9/1 to be the first goalscorer.
