Tottenham confirmed team vs Fulham: Conte sticks with Son, Perisic and Emerson Royal

Antonio Conte has named an unchanged side as Tottenham try to pick up a much-needed win at Fulham in the Premier League on Monday evening.

After winning the Golden Boot last season with Mohamed Salah, Son has struggled this campaign and has scored in only two Premier League games, against Leicester and Crystal Palace, and in one Champions League clash against Frankfurt. However Conte has stuck with the South Korean and also with the same team that lost 4-2 at Manchester City on Thursday night.

Conte's men are looking to get back on track after back-to-back defeats against title challengers Arsenal and City. They face a tough test at in-form Fulham side who will leapfrog them into fifth place if they win at Craven Cottage.

Rodrigo Bentancur was Spurs' best player at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night after six weeks out of action, and Conte has called on him in the midfield again against Fulham.

Ivan Perisic and Emerson Royal continue as the wing-backs while Pape Matar Sarr misses out on the bench as does Bryan Gil again.

Here is the team Conte has selected at Craven Cottage:

Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son. Subs: Forster, Sanchez, Lenglet, Doherty, Tanganga, Bissouma, Sessegnon, Skipp, Richarlison
