Parimatch News will tell you everything you need to know ahead of the upcoming match.
Fulham News & Current Form:
Marco Silva has made a good start to the season, picking up four points from three games: first the team beat Everton FC, then lost 0:3 to Brentford FC, and in the third round snatched a 2:2 draw at the Emirates against Arsenal FC.
Before kick-off, there was excitement and hope in the stadium under a cold August sky. But 57 seconds later, everything turned into a baffled silence as Fulham took the lead with a ridiculous goal that was eminently well taken.
An attempt by Bukayo Saka to return the ball to a defender ended up being a perfect pass to an uncovered Andreas Pereira instead. The finish was also superb, with Pereira spotting Aaron Ramsdale, who was trying to assess the danger in the center, and curling the ball under the near crossbar – a wonderful improvisation.
Arsenal seemed to have climbed out of the hole after a poor first half. After being one goal down, substitutions from Mikel Arteta brought them back to a 2:1 scoreline. And when Calvin Bassey received his second yellow card for tackling Eddie Nketiah in the 83rd minute, the mood was celebratory, things changed.
Jorginho replacing Martin Odegaard gave you a clue as to where things were heading. Yet it was the Cottagers ten-man squad that provided the rumble of thunder that accompanied the bright lightning. Substitute Harrison Reed converted a corner.
Not a single Arsenal player went into the contest. Bukayo Saka, who was having a terrible day save for a penalty, faltered and allowed the magnificent Joao Palhinha to equalize.

Tottenham Hotspur News & Current Form:
Tottenham have seven points after three rounds of the English Premier League. Ange Postecoglou took charge of the team just before the start of the season and he immediately faced the difficult task of completely rebuilding the team. Harry Kane, who already scores for FC Bayern Munich, was sold in the off-season, but Spurs have also managed to score six times in three games.
The team comes to visit the Cottagers after a 2:0 home win over Manchester United FC. Tottenham started the second half confidently and scored the first goal in the 49th minute. Towards the end of the match they managed to increase the advantage to two goals. Before that there was a draw with Brentford (2:2). It was a very tough game, but the team did not remain without points.

What has been said before the match:
Coach of the Cottagers Marco Silva about his tactical decisions ahead of the EFL Cup game:
“Probably for tomorrow I will have to make more rotations in some positions. Some it will be impossible for me to make rotations and I will have to make a technical decision. It is an important moment to see some players, who deserve to have minutes as well.”
“Of course, it is an important condition for us, it’s at home, our last home game was not, in terms of result, not the best result but we want to see a reaction like we did in our last game against Arsenal. It was a good reaction after our last home game against Brentford. It is a very good competition, right at the start of the season.”
“Of course, it is at the start of the season where some players are tired and we have to see each player and approach the situation in the right way because we have some players who have come back from big injuries, we have to manage these types of situations.”
“We expect something from them. They started the season well. They are playing good football as well. As always, Tottenham has a lot of good players, quality players all around the pitch.”
New Gaffer of the Spurs Ange Postecoglou will make changes in the squad ahead of the following Premier League games:
“We’ll make some changes. We’ve got some guys who are really keen to play, working hard in training and the way we play takes a lot out of us.
“It’s a short turn around and another game the following week. We’ll make some changes, but because we want to win the game. That’s why we’re making changes, not because I want to give guys a game. Hopefully, by making the changes, we maintain the intensity and tempo and quality of our game.”
Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction:
Despite the huge cloud of skepticism over North London, Tottenham have been on a roll since the departure of the systemically important Harry Kane, and the team has managed to gain great momentum, going unbeaten for three consecutive English Premier League rounds. Moreover, Spurs have been able to score at least two goals in each match, also boasting a convincing victory over the flamboyant Red Devils.
The fact that Fulham are conceding around 1.67 goals per 90 minutes in the 2023/2024 campaign rather interestingly underlines the output of the Black and Whites. As for the realization of chances for the hosts, they differ about once per meeting, which is not enough for a worthy resistance to their future opponents, even if Ange Postecoglou decides to give rest to his core players. Combining all of the above, we anticipate a more confident football performance from the latter in this pairing.
Parimatch News staff prediction:
We say: the total of corners will be less than 10.5 and the individual total of Tottenham Hotspur will be over 0.5 – Yes.
