2023/24 Premier League: Spurs v Fulham Match Preview
Tottenham look to continue their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a victory against London rivals Fulham on Monday.
Following the conclusion of the October international break, Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur side are set to return to Premier League action on Monday evening when they welcome a Fulham side led by Marco Silva to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. A win against the Cottagers would be the Lilywhites’ 7th win in just 9 matches.
Victory would not only almost guarantee their spot at the top of the table, it would also continue their unbeaten start. If they win, them staying top will depend on Arsenal’s result, and if the Gunners win, it will depend on their margin of victory.
Postecoglou’s team began their 2023/24 Premier League campaign with a trip to the Gtech Community Stadium to face Thomas Frank’s Brentford. In their first match since Harry Kane’s departure for Bayern Munich, Spurs played out a 2 – 2 draw in West London. Cristian Romero (11’) and Emerson Royal (45+4’) were on the scoresheet for the visitors that day, whilst it was Bryan Mbeumo (27’) and Yoane Wissa (36’) who were the goal scorers for the Bees.

It was an impressive 2 – 0 victory for the home team, who scored through midfielder Pape Matar Sarr (49’) and an own goal from Red Devils central defender Lisandro Martinez (83’).
Another 2 – 0 victory in the league followed; this time, it was against Andoni Iraola’s AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on the South Coast. James Maddison, a summer signing from Leicester City, opened the scoring (17’) before Dejan Kulusevski doubled the Lilywhites’ lead halfway through the second half (63’).
Spurs’ most emphatic win of the season to date came in the next game, which was played at Turf Moor against Vincent Kompany’s newly promoted Burnley team.

A fourth successive Premier League win then came at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against another newly promoted side, Paul Heckingbottom’s Sheffield United, who they came from behind to beat 2 – 1.
