Andrew Hughes thinks Fulham can match Tottenham on Sunday and help to land another weekend multiple in the process
“Fulham have also been showing signs of improvement at home. They’ve lost just one of their last five Premier League games at Craven Cottage, two of which were drawn.”
Five points adrift from safety and having lost their last three games in all competitions, Fulham go into this London derby in poor shape. But there is some cause for optimism for Cottagers fans this weekend.
Tottenham will be significantly weakened by the absence of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, a double loss that has only occurred three times in nearly 200 games under Mauricio Pochettino. With Lucas Moura also out, Spurs look particularly weak up front and will have to rely on Fernando Llorente.
Fulham have also been showing signs of improvement at home. They've lost just one of their last five Premier League games at Craven Cottage, two of which were drawn. While it might be asking too much for Claudio Ranieri's side to win this game, they are capable of earning a battling draw.
The AFC Championship game is all about rising star Patrick Mahomes versus one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time in Tom Brady, but I'm backing the younger man to lead Kansas City Chiefs to victory over the Patriots.
Brady steered his team to a convincing win over the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend, but the Chargers got their tactics all wrong, giving the 40-year-old far too much time and space to pick them apart. The Chiefs won't make that mistake.
Dee Ford and Justin Houston will aim to make Brady's experience at the Arrowhead Stadium as unpleasant as possible, while Tyreek Hill and Damien Williams will provide the rushing threat to complement Mahomes' attacking genius, which has yielded over 5,000 passing yards and 50 touchdowns this season.
The last time these teams met, on New Year's Day, the Sixers had the upper hand, securing a five-wicket win, but they've had contrasting fortunes in January and going into Sunday's encounter, it is the Heat who have the edge.
The Sixers have lost three of their last four. Against the Renegades, their batting had no answer to Mohammed Nabi, and they were restricted to 115, while against Perth, their bowlers were unable to defend a solid total of 177.
By contrast, after a slow start, the Heat are finding their form, winning three out of four and moving to the fringes of the play-offs, propelled by three consecutive half-centuries from Brendon McCullum, who remains one of Twenty20 cricket's most destructive batsmen. Back them to continue their winning form in Sydney.
