Fulham achieved promotion to the Premier League after defeating Aston Villa in the last season’s play-off final. After a disappointing start to the new season with a 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, they will travel to the Wembley Stadium to face Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, August 18.
The north London club started the new season with a 2-1 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park over the last weekend. Spurs did not strengthen the squad by signing a new player this summer, instead they were successful in handing new contracts to several of their star players, including manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Slaviša Jokanović, on the other hand, saw the Cottagers bring in a lot of faces to the club in the transfer window, including some on loan deals. The first away fixture of the season for Fulham is today and here are the starting line-ups for the match.
Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Trippier, Dier, Eriksen, Davies, Lucas, Alli, Kane.
Fulham XI: Fabri, Fosu-Mensah, Chambers, Le Marchand, Bryan, Seri, Anguissa, Cairney, Kamara, Sessegnon, Mitrovic.
