Fulham v Tottenham: match preview

Fulham will hope Tottenham miss Son Heung-min’s and Harry Kane’s attacking influence at Craven Cottage and that they can snatch a draw at worst as a result

Tottenham’s first test to survive following Son Heung-min leaving for the Asian Cup and Harry Kane suffering an ankle injury is a trip to Fulham. Claudio Ranieri’s side are five points from safety and will feel hope that they can salvage something. Ryan Babel making his Premier League return after eight years could help their cause. Érik Lamela and Fernando Llorente are solid replacements for Kane and Son though and should test Fulham’s improving but still imperfect defence. Graham Searles
