Fulham FC will square off with Tottenham Hotspur in an English Premier League match at Craven Cottage on March 4.

This will be the 30th meeting between the two teams in the Premier League era.

Tottenham have the upper hand having recorded 15 wins compared to Fulham’s seven victories, while seven matches ended in a draw.

The last league meeting between the two London teams ended in a 1-1 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 13 January 2021.

Meanwhile, Fulham are unbeaten in their last two home matches in the Premier League having recorded one draw and one victory.

The Cottagers secured a narrow 1-0 win over Sheffield United in their last home match in the league which was played on February 20.

On the other hand, Tottenham are winless in their three matches on the road in the league having registered three successive defeats.

Spurs suffered a 2-1 defeat to West Ham United in their last away match in the league which was played on February 21.

Ledley King, the Tottenham assistant manager, is looking forward to their upcoming London Derby clashes with Fulham and Crystal Palace.

“Although we were really disappointed with the result at West Ham, there were still a lot of good things to take out of the game,” King said.

“The fact we had 20 attempts, got into a lot of really good positions, then we had another good performance in the Europa League.

“It was important to kick on again back in the Premier League. Today [against Burnley] was the perfect response,” he added.

“We’ve got a tough next couple of fixtures coming up, London derbies, but this is a great fillip to get a 4-0 win and going into those games with a lot of confidence.”
