Fulham face Tottenham in a crucial clash on Sunday afternoon.
Claudio Ranieri’s side suffered a devastating and damaging defeat against Burnley last week and were architects of their own downfall as they scored two own-goals in the 2-1 loss at Turf Moor.
The Cottagers must now pick themselves up ahead of the visit of Spurs as they scrap for survival but Mauricio Pochettino’s team have lost just one of their last 14 away matches in all competitions.
Given that impressive record on the road, it is unsurprising that Spurs are William Hill’s 3/4 (1.75) favourites to win in west London.
Fulham are a 9/2 (5.50) chance to secure a vital victory, while William Hill go 12/5 (3.60) that the match ends all square.
Ryan Babel could make his Fulham debut after joining the club earlier this week. Alfie Mawson and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa remain out for the hosts, who have no fresh concerns.
Harry Kane sustained an ankle injury last weekend and will not be fit enough to feature until at least March. Son Heung-Min is at the Asian Cup and Lucas Moura remains doubtful, so Fernando Llorente is likely to lead the line for the visitors on Sunday.
Spurs have scored an impressive 16 goals in their last three matches away from home and despite their striker shortage, Pochettino’s team will hope to profit from Fulham’s defensive deficiencies.
Ranieri’s men have managed just two clean sheets in 22 Premier League matches this season and William Hill go 11/4 (3.75) that Spurs score more than two goals in this game. The same firm offer 15/4 (4.75) that Tottenham win both halves.
Better value, though, may lie in backing Spurs (-1) to beat the handicap mark this weekend.
The 9/5 (2.80) selection would have landed in each of Spurs’ last five victories on their travels and would also have paid dividends in each of Fulham’s four league defeats at Craven Cottage this term.
Tottenham (-1) at 9/5 (2.80) for a 1pt stake with William Hill
