History of the Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Tottenham Hotspur at Craven Cottage at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 13 of the 34 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 9.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was just last season, in November 2008, the Cottagers carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premier League match.
