Team News

  • Martin Jol remains without the same five players that were missing for the trip to Chelsea in midweek.
  • Fulham could field the same lineup that drew at Chelsea, but Mladen Petric will likely be recalled on home soil after only appearing from the bench at Stamford Bridge.
  • Senderos will continue at centre-back with Hangeland still suspended, while Dejagah and Frei will provide competition for Duff and Rodellega on the wings.
  • Two wins on the bounce now for Andre Villas-Boas' men and Spurs' season is starting to look a little brighter. The return of Mousa Dembele has played no small part in the turnaround in their form, and the Belgian should start again alongside Sandro in front of the back four.
  • Steven Caulker missed the win over Liverpool through illness but he may be back and could replace either Gallas or Dawson in the back four.
  • Defoe will continue up front with Adebayor serving the last match of his three game suspension.
  • Scott Parker is back in training and two weeks away from first team action according to AVB.

Prediction

  • Although Fulham's goalless draw at Stamford Bridge was a good result that they would have been extremely pleased with, it extended their run to a disappointing 6 matches without victory. They have also won none of their last seven Premier League games against Tottenham so the signs point away from a home win.
  • Spurs have scored first but gone on to lose their last two games away from home (at Man City and Arsenal), and will be keen to extend the two game winning run they have built up since the loss at the Emirates. With Dembele back to fitness and keen to put on a good show on his return to Craven Cottage, Spurs will be favourites.
  • The home side dominated this fixture last season, with 31 attempts on goal, but only one goal to show for it with the Belgian international and Dembele in their ranks. Those two go head to head with Dimitar Berbatov and Martin Jol against their former clubs, and while Fulham have a strong team under Jol, with the absentees they have and the momentum Spurs have from recent results, the north Londoner could come away with three points.

  • Well done to Spurs. Might even finish 3rd at the end of the season below City and Utd.
