Tottenham vs Fulham LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture tonight


Tottenham‘s run to the Carabao Cup final

Follow all the action as Tottenham Hotspur host Fulham in a hastily rearranged London derby in the Premier League this evening. 

Parker sent out a strong starting eleven for Fulham’s FA Cup third round victory over west London rivals QPR as the club seek to maintain their newfound momentum. It was not quite an avalanche of points, but four draws in succession in the league still represented a marked improvement before an outbreak of Covid within the Cottagers’ squad. Spurs, meanwhile, still have an optimistic eye on the title race and victory tonight would see them move to within four points of leaders Manchester United. Their squad is well-rested, too, after a heavily rotated side defeated Marine in an FA Cup tie to remember last time out.  Follow all the action live below at the conclusion of Man City vs Brighton:

71% possession in the first half for Man City with eight shots and three on target. Brighton have been threatening on occasion, they managed two shots and if they game stays like this they’ve got a chance to maybe sneak an equaliser.

Man City 1 – 0 Brighton

45+1 mins: Half time. It took them a while but Man City have the lead at the break. Brighton have been decent, they’d been defending well until the goal when Foden was allowed too much room in the box to run into. It’s going to be a tough second half for the Seagulls now.

Man City 1 – 0 Brighton – Foden

44 mins: GOAL! What a brilliant finish from Foden. De Bruyne has the ball on the left wing and he plays a simple pass into Foden running from left to right into the box. He takes the ball past one defender and then slots it beautifully into a small gap at the near post. Sanchez dives to his right but the ball spins away from him and finishes in the back of the net.
