Monday's Sport: Alex de Minaur faces huge test on home soil

Alex de Minaur is the only home competitor left in the Australian Open men's singles draw and he will attempt to try and halt Novak Djokovic on Monday.

Elsewhere, there's a London derby in the Premier League when Fulham welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Craven Cottage and there are two games in Serie A and one in La Liga.

Racing fans also have something to enjoy with three cards scheduled and you can keep across them all with bet365's Sports Live Streaming platform, while Ireland take on Zimbabwe in a crucial third and final one-day international.

OddsAlex de Minaur 7/2, Novak Djokovic 1/5

Djokovic has won a record nine Australian Open titles and he has his sights set on double figures in Melbourne as we enter week two.

The Serb has been in fine form after returning to the event for the first time since 2021 and it's going to take something special to halt him. He has only dropped one set and that came in his victory over Enzo Couacaud, when the world number five was clearly struggling with an injury.

De Minaur has never been beyond the fourth round of his home Grand Slam and he is 7/2 To Win the Match against 1/5 Djokovic, with these two players having never previously met in competition.

Premier League: Kane can steer Spurs back on track

OddsFulham 9/4, Draw 11/4, Tottenham 11/10

Fulham's four-game winning streak in the Premier League came to an end when they fell to a 1-0 loss against Newcastle United last time out.

Marco Silva's side, who have so far exceeded all expectations, aren't likely to dwell on that defeat and they'll be looking to bounce back at the expense of London rivals Tottenham at Craven Cottage.

The Cottagers have already beaten two London rivals this campaign, seeing off Chelsea and Crystal Palace, but they've lost to Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham.

Spurs ran out 2-1 winners on home turf earlier in the term, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Harry Kane cancelling out Aleksandar Mitrovic's strike.

Tottenham will hope to use this clash to get their own campaign back on track following a 4-2 loss at Manchester City on Thursday.

Kane looks the most likely candidate to help them in that pursuit after netting seven times in six previous appearances against Fulham,

The England star, who has 15 Premier League goals under his belt in 2022/23, is 11/10 To Score Anytime and 10/3 To Score First.

OddsInter Milan 2/7, Draw 5/1, Empoli 17/2

There are two games on the agenda in Serie A on Monday, with the highlight coming from the San Siro with the match-up between Inter Milan and Empoli.

Inter are third in the standings and it's going to take something special for them to catch leaders Napoli, who are 13 points clear, but the Nerazzurri do have AC Milan in their sights with just a point separating the cross-city rivals.

Simone Inzaghi's side have won each of their last five at home and they've only lost one of their last nine when hosting.

Empoli, meanwhile, are 12th after enjoying a four-game unbeaten run. However, that streak looks set to come to an end, with them having lost their last eight visits to Inter in Serie A.

Monday's other fixture in the Italian top-flight sees 11th-placed Bologna host rock-bottom Cremonese at 17:30.

Cremonese are yet to win a game and have only picked up seven points from their 18 outings, but should be boosted by having knocked Napoli out of the Coppa Italia last Tuesday.
