Tottenham Hotspur will hope to make it two Premier League wins on the spin for the first time since November when they travel to Fulham on Thursday.

Jose Mourinho's side ended a run of five defeats in six league outings with their rout of Burnley last time out.

Gareth Bale showed why he owned the white half of North London for so long with his sensational brace and an assist in a rampant display. Harry Kane and Lucas Moura also registered their names on the scoresheet.

Fulham are another side in upbeat form as they are unbeaten in five. Finally, Graham Potter's charges have started to convert decent performances into three points.

If Spurs enter the London derby on form, it'll be up to the Cottagers to defend out of their skin because Tottenham know how to create openings.
