Fulham v Spurs Preview

Our second home fixture in a few short days pits us against in-form Tottenham Hotspur. After seeing off Wisla Kracow, in fine style, on Thursday night, we suspect that Spurs might be a harder proposition. But, with the squad on a high, Fulham could shock their London rivals.

Vital Quotes:

The game does though, have the added spice of pitting Martin Jol against the side that he used to manage in the Premier League before being unceremoniously dumped. Danny Murphy, another who has Spurs connections, has remarked ahead of the game, to the media, about Jol crossing swords with Spurs again,

"I think the gaffer will be looking forward to it."

"Their fans will give him a good reception as well. After all, he did a reasonable job while he was there, getting them into fifth position two seasons running. That`s decent going."

"I don`t remember it exactly, but I know there was a little bit of dissatisfaction about the way it was done."

"But id there ever a good way to be sacked? Unfortunately, sometimes these things do get out."

"But, overall he can be happy with the job he did there and I think the fans will probably show their appreciation to him on Sunday."

"Well I hope they do because the Tottenham fans are a good bunch and they know their football."

We`ll see!

Fulham Team News:

After the fine 4-1 win in midweek Martin Jol has the opportunity to shuffle his pack. Moussa Dembele (suspended) and Bryan Ruiz (illegible) are available for selection.

But, having picked up a knee knock in midweek, Danny Murhy will be subjected to a fitness test. Out through injury are Simon Davies, Aaron Hughes and Philippe Senderos.

Player to watch: Andrew Johnson

A striker in fine form and hitting the back of the net on a regular basis, rumours of a possible England call-up might inspire AJ to up it yet another notch.

Spurs Team News:

Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan are likely to be in charge of Spurs this weekend as Harry Redknapp continues to recover from a minor heart operation (and we`d like to wish him a speedy recovery).

The dup have a few injury problems with Luka Modric doubtful with a groin problem and Tom Huddlestone, Michael Dawson and Niko Krancjaer all out injured.

The veteran French defender, William Gallas, could be back in contention for a centre back role having played in midweek, in the Europa League.

Player to watch: Rafael Van Der Vaart

The Dutch international has started the season well and has the potential to be a real thorn in our side.

Match Facts & Stats

The record books show that the two clubs have met 75 times. Spurs have won 37, whilst Fulham have won 12 with 26 drawn.

Recent league form shows Fulham struggle against Spurs with us having only 1 win in the last 10 games against them, that coming back in November 2008.

Match Prediction:

This will be a real tough game and one that we`ll do well to get a result out of. Spurs are the form team, having taken 19 points out of the last 21 on offer. But, on the back of the fine win on Thursday night, I reckon we could upset the odds here and nick a narrow win!

Next Fixtures:

The international stage takes over next weekend so we won`t witness Fulham in action again until we travel to Sunderland in two weeks time.

I expect nothing but a great reaction for Jol from us Spurs fans, I, and a lot of others, feel he did better than 'Arry when considering the quality of the squads they both had. Results yesterday have kept the pressure on us.
