Tottenham vs Fulham H2H Record

The matches between Tottenham and Fulham have largely ended in favour of the former.

  • Tottenham Wins: 48
  • Draws: 27
  • Fulham Wins: 13

In the Premier League meetings alone, Spurs have a strong winning streak with 18 successes compared to just seven for the Cottagers. Even though Fulham were able to register a League Cup success on penalties in the recent outing, they have struggled quite a lot in these matches.

The last league success for Fulham against Spurs was way back in the 2012-13 season. Incidentally, this was also the last home defeat for Spurs against their London rivals.

Tottenham and Fulham met each other as recently as in the League Cup match in August. Spurs went with a second-string line-up which went behind to an early own goal from Mickey van de Ven. Richarlison was able to provide the equaliser in the second half with Ivan Perisic providing the assist. Spurs made significant changes after the break but they ultimately lost out in the penalty shootout.

Tottenham vs Fulham H2H: Potential MVP

James Maddison made the big £40 million switch to Spurs in the summer but the absence of Harry Kane led to questions about his potential for impact in the squad. However, the England international has answered these doubts in spectacular fashion.

Maddison has the second-highest number of assists in the Premier League so far this season. The 26-year-old has managed five assists from his eight league appearances with only Pedro Neto and Kieran Trippier managing more.

The midfielder has done quite well in his past games against Fulham with two in his eight appearances – the majority of them coming for Leicester City. After having scored or assisted a goal in 50% of his last eight games for Spurs, Maddison is a player to watch.

Tottenham: Players in focus

James Madison adding the creative influence

James Maddison’s impact on the Tottenham squad has been profound. The creative midfielder has come up with two goals and five assists in his eight league appearances. The Tottenham vs Fulham football stats reveal Maddison to be the highest-rated player in both squads.

Son Heung-Min being the byword for consistency

Spurs continue to get consistent performances out of Son Heung-Min, who has emerged as the big goal threat in the absence of Harry Kane. Son Heung-Min has already come up with six goals in just eight league appearances.

Cristian Romero churning out rocksolid performances

Cristian Romero has been one of the top defenders in the league and his presence has been a big factor behind Spurs having the second-best defensive record.

Fulham: Players in focus

Fulham are among the lowest scorers in the league but they have also been quite decent at the back. The Tottenham vs Fulham stats would be far worse without Joao Palhinha. The Portuguese has been averaging close to 3 successful tackles per match.

Willian maturing like fine wine

The former Chelsea and Arsenal winger has provided a ton of experience to this Fulham squad at 35. He has managed two big performances in the games against Norwich and Sheffield United.

Bernd Leno solid between the posts

Bernd Leno has been a big factor behind Fulham having conceded only five goals more than Spurs despite more than 10 places separating them in the league table. The German goalkeeper has helped Fulham to two clean sheets – more than Spurs – in the last five.

Final Prediction

Tottenham are flying high at the start of the 23-24 Premier League season. Spurs are yet to suffer a defeat, but, ironically, their only defeat of the season came against Fulham in the League Cup. A full-strength squad should put Spurs well ahead of Fulham, who have struggled to create chances.
