Fulham vs Tottenham LIVE!

Spurs have made their earliest Carabao Cup exit for almost two decades after a painful night at Craven Cottage. Tottenham went down 5-3 in a penalty shootout as they were condemned to their first competitive defeat of the Ange Postecoglou era on Tuesday night, with Davinson Sanchez seeing his spot-kick crucially saved by Marek Rodak.

Postecoglou will face inevitable questions over his team selection after such a positive start to the Premier League campaign, with nine changes made despite a lack of European football as the north Londoners let slip a potentially key chance to end their 15-year trophy drought this term. Richarlison could see his season kick-started though by a first goal in the second half, heading in Ivan Perisic’s cross to cancel a first-half Micky van de Ven own goal - his second in four Tottenham appearances - forced by Tom Cairney’s cross.

Kenny Tete fired home the decisive winning penalty for Fulham, who are into the hat for Wednesday night’s third-round draw. Follow Fulham vs Tottenham reaction live below, with expert analysis from Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage.

After a pulsating second half, this London derby will be decided by the lottery of a penalty shootout!

A place in the third round of the Carabao Cup at stake

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:43 , George Flood

98 mins: A late, late bout of Spurs pressure comes to nothing as Maddison’s left-wing corner is flicked on dangerously by Davies at the front post.

Another cross is repelled by Wilson and the final whistle sounds.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:42 , George Flood

96 mins: Tottenham have a late free-kick right on the edge of the box, but it’s into the wall from Maddison.

Van de Ven and Jimenez then tussle as the Mexican tries to muscle through on goal.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:40 , George Flood

94 mins: A huge chance for Fulham to claim a last-gasp win in stoppage time, but Jimenez heads Tete’s cross over the crossbar!

Marco Silva with his head in his hands up in the stands.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:37 , George Flood

91 mins: SEVEN minutes of added time at Craven Cottage.

Scarlett battles hard inside the box and earns a Spurs corner, with Maddison’s delivery from the right flicked away.

The ball falls kindly for Hojbjerg, who drills high and wide from the edge of the box.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:36 , George Flood

89 mins: Ream gives the ball away cheaply for Fulham and Son helps to release Scarlett, but Rodak is off his line in a flash to snuff out the danger. Solid goalkeeping.

At the other end, Forster closes down the angle well and denies Wilson with his feet!

Both sides pushing for a last-gasp winner to avoid the dreaded lottery of penalties.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:33 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

Maddison has immediately made a difference with a weaving run to the byline but his introduction feels a little late.

We’re heading for penalties here unless one of these sides can produce something special in the final few minutes.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:33 , George Flood

86 mins: Lovely dancing feet from the fleet-footed Maddison inside the box after an errant Fulham clearance from the byline.

He tries to pick out Kulusevski, but it’s not accurate enough and Emerson Royal ends up thundering a poor shot high and wide.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:29 , George Flood

82 mins: Postecoglou turns to James Maddison, who comes on for Solomon.

Fulham send on Raul Jimenez and Tyrese Francois for Muniz and Cairney.

Penalties are looming at the Cottage.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:26 , George Flood

80 mins: A flying save from Rodak denies Solomon a goal against his former club after a fine pass from Son.

The rebound falls for Scarlett, but there’s too much pace on the ball and he can’t find the finish.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:23 , George Flood

78 mins: Teenage midfielder Luke Harris also comes on for Fulham.

He replaces Reed.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:22 , George Flood

77 mins: Finally Pereira is on, with De Cordova-Reid making way.

Inside the last 15 minutes at Craven Cottage - a reminder that this game will go straight to penalties if it’s still level at the end of the 90.

No extra time.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:21 , George Flood

74 mins: It was indeed assistant Chris Davies who was booked for Spurs a few moments ago.

Now Van de Ven is in the book too for a mistimed challenge that sends Wilson flying.

The former Liverpool winger has given Fulham a real spark.

Andreas Pereira has been waiting for ages to come on for the hosts, sitting down and getting back up a couple of times.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:19 , George Flood

72 mins: Superb play from Wilson inside the Spurs box and Sanchez makes a crucial last-ditch block.

Referee Josh Smith has just brandished a yellow card to someone in that Spurs dugout. I think it was Chris Davies, one of Postecoglou’s assistants.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:17 , George Flood

69 mins: Good save from Forster to keep out De Cordova-Reid’s header.

Perisic’s penalty appeals are then waved away after a fierce tussle with Tete.

Son, Pape Sarr and Dejan Kulusevski are all coming on now in a triple Spurs change from Postecoglou.

Off go Perisic, Skipp and goalscorer Richarlison.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:15 , George Flood

67 mins: Fulham are piling on the pressure once more now with Muniz and Tete the dangermen.

Spurs are preparing another couple of changes, including Heung-min Son.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:12 , George Flood

65 mins: It should be 2-1 to Fulham!

Spurs are caught in possession over on their left-hand side and Wilson strides forward, sliding in De Cordova-Reid for a great chance that he miscues wide while off-balance.

A golden opportunity passed up.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:11 , George Flood

63 mins: One foul too many from the combative Skipp, who brings down Palhinha roughly and deservedly has his name taken by the referee.

Just before that, Tete had fired an ambitious long-range drive high into the stands.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:06 , George Flood

60 mins: Fulham react to that equaliser with a substitution on the hour mark.

Harry Wilson replaces Traore.

Fulham 1-1 Tottenham

21:06 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

Is that the moment to kickstart Richarlison’s season and Spurs career? It was a great ball from Perisic to the far post and a smart finish from the Brazilian.

Spurs are back in this game without turning to their big hitters. Fair play.

GOAL! Fulham 1-1 Tottenham | Richarlison 56'

21:02 , George Flood

56 mins: Yes they can and Richarlison has a crucial goal at last!

With Tete back in the dressing room, Spurs attack down his side and Richarlison heads in a Perisic cross at the back post, with Ream unable to hack it off the line.

A much-needed goal for the Brazilian. Game on!

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

21:01 , George Flood

55 mins: That is Tottenham’s best chance of the night so far as Hojbjerg fires narrowly wide.

Now Fulham are farcially down to 10 men as Tete demands a new boot from the touchline but ends up having to race down the tunnel.

Can Spurs make their temporary numerical advantage count?

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

21:00 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

Scarlett for Lo Celso was not the half-time change I was expecting, it’s fair to say.

The teenager has certainly bulked up since his last game for Spurs - at Middlesbrough in March 2022 - but he remains extremely inexperienced at this level.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:59 , George Flood

53 mins: A chance of sorts for Spurs as Richarlison’s effort takes a big looping deflection up off Ream and has to be helped over the crossbar by Rodak, who emphatically punches clear the resulting corner.

Spurs are then frustrated as a potential counter is ended by an injury to Muniz.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:58 , George Flood

51 mins: The travelling Spurs fans are becoming more and more agitated here as Skipp becomes the latest to make an error.

There is still no fluency to Postecoglou’s much-changed side whatsoever.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:54 , George Flood

48 mins: Early second-half danger for Spurs as Traore leaves several players in the dust before being stopped by a well-timed challenge from Van de Ven.

Cairney’s delivery comes out to Reed, whose fierce drive is blocked before Tottenham hammer clear.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:51 , George Flood

Back underway at Craven Cottage.

No changes from Fulham, who will want more of the same in this second half.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:49 , George Flood

There is a half-time change coming from Spurs, but not the one you might have expected.

It’s 19-year-old forward Dane Scarlett coming on for Lo Celso.

Interesting from Postecoglou. The big names stay on the bench for now.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:38 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

Fulham deservedly lead here and, as it stands, Spurs are heading out of the League Cup before the top seven have played.

I think Bissouma, Maddison and possibly Romero have to come on if they want to get back into this game.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:38 , George Flood


Much-changed Spurs deservedly trail at half-time thanks to Van de Ven’s own goal forced by great work from Cairney and are indebted to Forster for a fine save from Muniz on the stroke of half-time.

It could and should be worse for the totally flat visitors, who have been really poor so far.

It’s a very strong bench though and you’ve got to think that Postecoglou will already be thinking about some changes.

Fulham bright despite their own alterations and the absence of Marco Silva and well worth their lead as things stand.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:33 , George Flood

45 mins: Some more fine defending from Ream snuffs out the latest brief period of Spurs pressure.

Tottenham are then indebted to Forster for keeping it at 1-0 as Reed releases Traore and the Spaniard supplies a cross that is headed goal-bound by Muniz.

That’s a fine low stop from the former England ‘keeper.

Into two minutes of added time.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:30 , George Flood

43 mins: Ream thumps clear to ease the mounting pressure inside that Fulham box before half-time.

Spurs picking up a little bit as the interval looms.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:29 , George Flood

42 mins: Emerson Royal also fluffs his lines for Spurs before Sanchez overhits a promising long ball intended for the run of Solomon.

Palhinha now gives the ball away for Fulham and then brings down Richarlison in a dangerous position while trying to atone for his error.

Perisic steps up... into the wall. Richarlison tries to keep the rebound in but it’s a corner after he tussles with Robinson.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:26 , George Flood

38 mins: Better from Spurs as De Cordova-Reid is successfully harried out of possession inside his own half and Lo Celso and Skipp quickly combine to find Richarlison, whose low shot is blocked behind by Ream.

A poor flat corner is easily cleared though and Hojbjerg’s overhit cross is then comfortably gathered by Rodak.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:24 , George Flood

35 mins: Perisic has been so wasteful for Tottenham so far.

A really poor first half from the Croatian, though the same can be said for each of those Spurs players. Just not at the races at the moment.

Postecoglou is trying to gee up his charges down on the touchline, but it’s not having the desired impact so far.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:23 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

Spurs fans are venting their frustration at chairman Daniel Levy, with chants towards the Cottage of ‘get out of our club’.

It’s still not happening for the visitors on the pitch and, at this rate, I suspect Yves Bissouma and James Maddison will be needed in the second half to get Spurs on the ball and beyond Fulham’s press.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:20 , George Flood

31 mins: Forster beats away a determined low effort from Muniz with his left foot at the front post after a swift Fulham counter led by Traore.

Palhinha then hauls down Richarlison as he tries to inspire a Spurs break, with Davies furious that referee Josh Smith denied the chance for a quick free-kick.

Tottenham’s stand-in captain is given a stern talking to.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:18 , George Flood

30 mins: Diop hobbling a bit there for Fulham after a challenge, but he’s quickly shaken it off.

Half an hour gone and still no threat from much-changed Spurs whatsoever.

They are seeing much more of the ball now, but can’t break down Fulham.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:17 , George Flood

27 mins: Tottenham just cannot find a way into this game at the moment.

They get a corner after Tete’s defensive header, but it’s quickly wasted to ironic cheers.

Fulham fans revelling in seeing former winger Solomon struggling here.

The influentual Palhinha now down after a challenge from Skipp, but he’s fine to carry on.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:13 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

Davinson Sanchez has somewhat played his way back into contention since the start of the season but he is having a shocker out there.

The Colombian centre-back is uncomfortable with and without possession and was turned inside out by Cairney ahead of Van de Ven’s own goal.

Fulham 1-0 Tottenham

20:12 , George Flood

23 mins: Another chance for Fulham as Robinson flies down the left and tees up Reed with an accurate cross, but the header is well off target.

Ange Postecoglou will be very unhappy with what he’s seeing here, despite all those changes.

By the way, that has definitely gone down as a Van de Ven own goal. The stadium announcer had wrongly credited it to Reed.

GOAL! Fulham 1-0 Tottenham | Micky van de Ven OG 19’

20:07 , George Flood

19 mins: The hosts deservedly lead!

Cairney links up nicely with De Cordova-Reid and then beats the struggling Sanchez all ends up.

He ends up pulling the ball back across, where it’s accidentally deflected into his own net by Van de Ven, who has his second Spurs own goal in just four matches.

Perisic tried his best to hack it off the line but he couldn’t get there.

Tottenham pay the price for their sluggish start.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

20:06 , George Flood

18 mins: Fulham are able to sustain another decent bout of pressure after a free-kick, with Tottenham forced to defend doggedly to stop the likes of Cairney and Reed on the edge of the box.

Palhinha floats a pass out to Traore, who keeps it in play and cuts inside before delivering a cross that is repelled by Sanchez at the back post.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

20:04 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

You can tell Spurs have made nine changes so far. They are struggling to get out of their half and string passing moves together. Richarlison, who needs a goal tonight really, has barely had a touch.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

20:03 , George Flood

15 mins: Unsurprisingly, Tottenham are clearly lacking any fluency or rhythm here after so many changes.

Meanwhile, Luis Boa Morte looks to be the lead coach in that Fulham dugout with manager Marco Silva serving his touchline ban.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

20:01 , George Flood

13 mins: Traore looks to get away down the Fulham right again, but he overruns it and is seen off well by Van de Ven, who gets serenaded by the away fans behind that goal for his efforts.

Traore took a bit of a tumble into the barrier there. But he’s okay.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

19:59 , George Flood

11 mins: It’s still mostly all Fulham at Craven Cottage, with the offside flag stopping an opportunity from a free-kick before De Cordova-Reid misses the target with an ambitious effort from distance.

De Cordova-Reid then closes down Forster very quickly in a heart-in-mouth moment for the back-up Spurs ‘keeper. Too slow and casual, but he gets away with a goal kick.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

19:56 , George Flood

8 mins: More early pressure from the hosts as the speedy Traore finds acres of space down the right on his first Fulham start.

His first cross is blocked at close range and the second is hastily scrambled clear.

A couple of worrying signs down both sides for Tottenham defensively in the early going here.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

19:55 , George Flood

7 mins: The first chance of the game falls to Fulham, as Spurs give the ball away cheaply inside their own half and Robinson skips down that left flank.

He ends up teeing up a back-post cross for Muniz, who narrowly heads wide.

A let-off for Tottenham, that. They could easily be 1-0 down here.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

19:53 , George Flood

5 mins: Spurs had been seeing much of the ball but a couple of nervy moments follow, including for Skipp as he gets the ball back to Forster under pressure.

Still not sure of the colour of this Tottenham third kit.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

19:51 , George Flood

3 mins: No action at all really to speak of in the opening exchanges.

It’s all a bit scrappy in the teeming rain and the ball is being bogged down in midfield, with neither side able to build up much possession.

The more than 4,000 Spurs fans in the away end are making a hell of a racket, though.

Fulham 0-0 Tottenham

19:48 , George Flood

Standard Sport’s Dan Kilpatrick at Craven Cottage

Making nine changes for a cup game under the previous Tottenham regime(s) would have inevitably been grim but it will be interesting to see if Postecoglou has got buy-in from fringe players and built a style which transcends the first XI.

The cups are important for the manager but so is keeping his whole squad happy.

19:46 , George Flood

A great atmosphere as we get underway at the Cottage.

The away end in fine voice.

Fulham vs Tottenham

19:44 , George Flood

Here come the players at Craven Cottage!

It’s a very rainy, cloudy and gloomy August night in west London.

Let’s hope the action makes up for the rank weather.

Tottenham to debut new third kit tonight

19:31 , George Flood

A swift debut for Tottenham’s new third kit tonight, which looks to have been well received by fans after its official release earlier today - even if there is a little bit of confusion over its exact colour.

Not quite sure if it’s a pinky/salmon effort or more beige in tone.

Either way it’s a decent strip.

Six changes from Fulham

19:20 , George Flood

I make that six changes in total from Fulham, with Kenny Tete, Issa Diop and Antonee Robinson all keeping their places in defence.

Ditto Joao Palhinha in midfield and Bobby De Cordova-Reid up top.

Otherwise it’s all change, with Bernd Leno replaced by Marek Rodak between the posts.

Tim Ream partners Diop at the back with Calvin Bassey suspended, while Sasa Lukic, Andreas Pereira and Harry Wilson are replaced by Harrison Reed, Tom Cairney and Adama Traore.

Raul Jimenez also makes way for Brazilian forward Rodrigo Muniz.

Fulham’s bench includes teenage full-back Luc De Fougerolles and fellow youngster Luke Harris.

19:10 , George Flood

No injury concerns over Pedro Porro though, it would appear. Slightly surprised he didn’t make the Spurs bench over Udogie.

Dane Scarlett will be itching for a chance to impress later on, no doubt.

Nine Tottenham changes from Postecoglou

19:08 , George Flood

So Ange Postecoglou makes nine changes to the Tottenham team that won 2-0 at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

Only centre-back Micky van de Ven and striker Richarlison retain their starting berths from the Vitality Stadium.

Otherwise it’s pretty much as we expected, with Ben Davies captaining the team and Emerson Royal also into that defence along with Davinson Sanchez. Fraser Forster deputises for Guglielmo Vicario in goal.

Pedro Porro is the only of the other nine starters at Bournemouth not to make the bench, with Destiny Udogie a substitute after being withdrawn as a precaution at the weekend.

Giovani Lo Celso starts in midfield, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg also starts amid those latest transfer links involving Manchester United and Oliver Skipp is also in.

Manor Solomon faces his old club as part of a front three with Richarlison and Ivan Perisic.

No Eric Dier again though amid those Bayern Munich links, or Japhet Tanganga, who is attracting interest from Torino. No Tanguy Ndombele, either.

Richarlison needs goal as Spurs target new forward

18:29 , George Flood

Richarlison is expected to have another opportunity to kickstart his spluttering season into life in Tottenham's Carabao Cup second-round tie at Fulham tonight, writes Dan Kilpatrick.

After just three games under Ange Postecoglou, it is too early to talk about pressure, but the Brazilian feels like a player in desperate need of a goal, particularly as the new head coach's patience is likely to have limits.

Richarlison allowed his frustration to get the better of him in Saturday's 2-0 win over Bournemouth, earning a rash booking before being substituted for a second consecutive match, having not made a significant impression for the third game in a row.

Like every member of the squad, Richarlison is adjusting to a new approach, while also suffering a hangover from a difficult first season at Spurs, as well as coping with the twin expectations of a £60million price tag and filling the gaping hole left by Harry Kane.

Eric Dier ‘left out of Spurs squad’ once again

18:05 , George Flood

It sounds like Eric Dier is not in the Tottenham squad once again tonight.

The England defender has yet to feature in any matchday squad under Ange Postecoglou amid rumours of a potential exit from Spurs before Friday night’s transfer deadline.

He might have been expected to play some part against Fulham, but it’s now being reported that he won’t even make the bench at Craven Cottage.

Dier is said to have been offered to Bayern Munich, where he could quickly reunite with Harry Kane, with Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund also believed to hold an interest in his services.

Marco Silva: I have to change after touchline ban

17:55 , George Flood

Marco Silva has never been a manager to shy away from expressing his opinions on the touchline, but even for a head coach as feisty as him a touchline ban after only three games of the season is a quite remarkable feat.

The Portuguese has at least accepted that he needs to look at modifying his behaviour in the dugout with three yellow cards to his name already this term, the latest for criticising Calvin Bassey’s dismissal at Arsenal for bringing down Eddie Nketiah on the counter-attack.

“I understand that that is the decision,” Silva told reporters of his ban. “And I respect the decisions, even if sometimes they are difficult to understand.

“I have to understand though and change some things that they want me to change.”


Fulham vs Tottenham prediction

17:36 , George Flood

A difficult task for Spurs but given their form - and Fulham’s struggles - they should have enough about them to secure a narrow win.

Spurs to win, 2-1.

Tottenham team news

17:35 , George Flood

Changes are also planned by Ange Postecoglou, with Spurs still missing the likes of Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon, Bryan Gil and Alfie Whiteman due to injury.

Destiny Udogie is also unlikely to be risked after being taken off against Bournemouth as a precautionary measure, with Giovani Lo Celso among those expected to be given a chance to impress from the off tonight.

Postecoglou said of the Argentine: “Gio’s been a bit unlucky. He did well when he came on for us [at Bournemouth]. I thought all the subs did really well just to help us control the game. We’ve got a game Tuesday night and he’ll play.”

Lo Celso is expected to play behind a front three consisting of Richarlison, Ivan Perisic and Manor Solomon, with Fraser Forster, Davinson Sanchez, Ben Davies, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp among the other players likely to come in.

Fulham team news

17:29 , George Flood

Fulham are without summer signing Calvin Bassey tonight after the Nigerian defender’s dismissal at Arsenal.

Willian is also set to miss out, with the Premier League trip to champions Manchester City potentially earmarked for the Brazilian’s return on Saturday.

If not, Fulham will wait until after the international break, when they host newly-promoted Luton first up.

Marco Silva has pledged to rotate his starting XI this evening, telling reporters on Monday: “Probably I will have to make more rotations in some positions.

“Some it will be impossible for me to make rotations and I will have to take make a technical decision.

“It is an important moment to see some players, who deserve to have minutes as well.”

New signing Timothy Castagne, who joined from Leicester for around £21m on Tuesday, was not bought in time to make his debut in this game.


Where to watch Fulham vs Tottenham

17:24 , George Flood

TV channel and live stream: Tonight’s game will not be broadcast live in the UK, with Salford vs Leeds selected for Sky Sports coverage instead.

But fans can watch highlights of the match, and all the other second-round action, on ITV4 at 12:15am in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Fulham vs Tottenham

17:21 , George Flood

Good evening and welcome to the Evening Standard's latest live coverage of the 2023/24 Carabao Cup.

Tonight we are focused on events at Craven Cottage, where a lively second-round London derby lies in store between Fulham and Tottenham.

It's been an impressive start to life under new boss Ange Postecoglou at Spurs so far despite the colossal summer loss of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, with an opening-weekend Premier League draw at Brentford followed by impressive wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth respectively.

They will look to keep up that feelgood factor tonight in SW6 though will be very wary of a Fulham side who, after being trounced by rivals Brentford to dampen the enthusiasm from their win at Everton, claimed an unlikely 2-2 draw at Arsenal on Saturday despite going down to 10 men.

The hosts are without Marco Silva tonight as their manager already serves a touchline ban having received three yellow cards in the top-flight this term.

Likely rotation from both sides should make this a real unpredictable contest, with Standard Sport's chief football correspondent Dan Kilpatrick on hand to provide expert analysis from Craven Cottage.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm BST, so stay tuned for live updates and all the latest team news!
