Tottenham: Mourinho pleased to reach fifth League Cup final
Tottenham will be taking on London rivals Fulham on Wednesday night, after their match against Aston Villa was postponed. The Villans had a number of Covid cases in their squad, and the postponement gave both Tottenham and Fulham a chance to play their previously postponed fixture.
Spurs have won 10 of their last 11 league matches against Fulham, with their only defeat coming in a 1-0 loss back in 2013.
Fulham have also lost their last 13 Premier League London derbies, which is an all-time record for the top flight.
Tottenham beat Leeds United 3-0 last time out, whereas Fulham drew with high-flying Southampton.
Fulham have drawn their last four Premier League fixtures, including games against Liverpool and Newcastle United.
