Spurs will be looking to get back on track after the losses to Liverpool and Inter over the last week. Gareth Bale is available again after his European suspension, and Andre Villas-Boas will need to take into account the 120 minutes many of his players went through in Milan on Thursday having been taken to extra time in the Europa League. After Arsenal’s win over Swansea yesterday, this is a crucial game for Spurs ahead of a run of fixtures that sees them play Swansea, Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City.
Fulham’s Martin Jol will be looking for a good result at his former club after a disappointing run of form has seen the Cottagers on the brink of being dragged into the relegation fight. Currently on 33 points, Fulham will be hoping a result today can help them finish strongly and perhaps claim a top half finish instead. Dimitar Berbatov also returns to his former club, whilst Mousa Dembele will be up against the team he left for £15m in the summer.
Spurs won 3-1 in the return fixture, but what is your prediction for today?
