Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Fulham at Craven Cottage this Monday night as they look to earn maximum points on the road. Spurs suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Manchester City recently which could drain their confidence ahead of this game.
Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte is expected to opt for a 3-4-3 formation and could name a strong team for this game. Richarlison will probably play from the start in this London derby while Heung-min Son makes way for him and drops to the bench.
3-4-3 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Fulham
Hugo Lloris will operate in between the sticks for Spurs after shipping in four goals in his last outing. Conte could name a back three of Clement Lenglet, Eric Dier and Cristian Romero as they look to keep the opposition at bay during the 90 minutes.
Davinson Sanchez and Matt Doherty will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur will anchor the midfield for Tottenham as they try to make life difficult for the home team at the centre of the park. Both of them will also need to spread the play well if Spurs are to come out on top in this London derby.
Ryan Sessegnon will get the nod to impress as the left-sided wide player while Emerson Royal hopes to catch the eye on the right flank. Conte will ask both of them to work hard and create some problems for the Fulham full-backs on the flanks.
Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to impress in the second 45 minutes if needed.
Richarlison will get a chance to give a good account of himself as the left-sided attacking midfielder while Dejan Kulusevski looks to weave his magic from the right.
Harry Kane will lead the charge for the North London club on the attacking end of the field. The English centre-forward will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for Spurs on his own up top.
Lucas Moura is unlikely to recover in time for this game as he is still recovering from an injury problem. However, Heung-min Son should be available for a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if Tottenham are in need of a goal by then.
