Fulham face a trip to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane at lunchtime on Friday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them taste defeat on 20 occasions, and draw 11, from the 33 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2007, with Tottenham H. annihilating their visitors 5 - 1 in a Premier League match.
