Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur: match preview

Tottenham, after a disappointing defeat in the Europa Legaue on Thursday, will likely rest some name players, giving Fulham extra incentive to pile more misery on Mauricio Pochettino’s side

Fulham, resurgent just outside the play-off positions in the Championship, have beaten Premier League opposition twice this term having seen off Middlesbrough in the EFL Cup and Hull in this competition. Slavisa Jokanovic will hope to make that a hat-trick against a stuttering Tottenham Hotspur. Mauricio Pochettino intends to make changes at Craven Cottage in the hope the fringe players offer some freshness. Spurs have won on their last three trips across the capital, and none of the side who lost 4-0 on their last FA Cup visit here, six years ago, remain at the club. Dominic Fifield
