Spurs have slipped from first to seventh in the space of just two weeks and are four league games without a win, with the previously on-fire duo of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scoring just one goal apiece in that time.
The home form of Mourinho’s side is also somewhat indifferent this season, with three wins from seven and only 10 goals scored on home soil, so a big performance and return to winning ways is of paramount importance to their Champions League aspirations.

Despite the recent improvement from Fulham, Spurs should pose too many problems for Scott Parker’s team as long as Jose Mourinho doesn’t ask them to withdraw too deep, too early. Spurs 2-0 Fulham
