Tottenham Starting Attack
Despite a hattrick at the weekend, we are only likely to see Carlos Vinicius on the bench for Tottenham. Ideally the man gets and opportunity in the second half and Harry Kane can get a breather, but it is highly unlikely we will see the Brazilian from the start. After Kane and Heung-Min Son both got 90 minutes off they will be ready, now who is on the other wing, is a good question.
Heung-Min Son (LW)
Heung-Min Son was an unused substitute in the match against Marine at the weekend, as the get out of jail card José Mourinho thankfully never had to play. After a much deserved and needed rest, expect to see Son at his pacey, attacking best against Fulham. Expect Son to be running most of the afternoon at the back three of Fulham attempting to find space in the channels and stretch the defense. If Fulham does try to go toe-to-toe with Spurs in possession, it could mean big things for Son.
Harry Kane (ST)
As usual Harry Kane will be leading the line for Tottenham and looking to play his ever-expanding all-around game. Kane’s movement off the ball wreaks havoc on defenses who must choose to either stay home or go with the man. If they go with the man, it leaves space for Son to run in, if they let Kane go, Spurs will have numbers in the midfield and Kane can orchestrate the attack. Kane has always dropped deep; it is just what he does with the ball now and what others do off the ball which has changed and unlocked Kane’s larger potential.
Steven Bergwijn (RW)
After being a little gimpy at the end of the Leeds match at the start of the month, Steven Bergwijn has had a couple weeks to recover and should be ready for Fulham. There is the outside possibility that Erik Lamela returns to the fold for this one and starts over Bergwijn, but the Dutchman has been a key cog in the Tottenham attack all season, even without the product. Look for that effort to continue, and we all hope to see Bergwijn break his duck soon and get back in the score column.
