Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Fulham vs Tottenham
Popular football expert Mark Lawrenson predicted a win for Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday.
Spurs will travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham in the Premier League and Lawrenson has scored a 2-0 win for Jose Mourinho’s side.
North Londoners returned to winning ways last weekend after beating Burnley 4-0, with Gareth Bale scoring a brace.
It was arguably Bale’s best performance since joining Spurs on loan from Real Madrid that summer when Spurs took all three points.
It was also the first time Mourinho unleashed the top three of Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Bale, and it paid off.
Spurs are six points ahead of fourth-placed West Ham United by one game and will try to fill the gap with other rivals.
Lawrenson told BBC Sport: “Tottenham were very impressive against Burnley on Sunday and if they can repeat that performance with Gareth Bale, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane all fully fit and playing well they will be too much for Fulham have too.
“I know Fulham have had some decent results in the past few weeks but it’s hard to see they match the draw they did with Spurs in January unless we see a drop from Jose Mourinho’s side. “
Fulham have done well in the last few games. The Cottagers are unbeaten in their last five games and have two wins.
This is the first of three London derbies Spurs will be involved in, followed by Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
Before the big derby match in north London they need to build up some confidence and momentum by collecting full points against the clubs in the lower half.
