“Fulham travel to Tottenham having drawn their last four Premier League matches,” Owen told BetVictor.

“I was impressed with Spurs in their last home match against Leeds, and if they can recapture that form, I think they’ll win.”
Tottenham have won 10 of their last 11 games against Fulham in the Premier League.
Fulham haven’t beaten Spurs since Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov netted the winner against his former club in March 2013.
