Fulham Team News   
Fulham will again be without back-up goalkeeper Marek Rodak for Thursday's Premier League match against Tottenham. Rodak has a finger problem, meaning veteran Spaniard Fabri will provide cover for Alphonse Areola on the bench. Forward Aleksandar Mitrovic could come back into contention for a start, having been a substitute against Crystal Palace after recovering from Covid-19, but captain Tom Cairney (knee) continues his rehabilitation along with defender Terence Kongolo (calf).

Tottenham Hotspur Team News   
Tottenham will be without Giovani Lo Celso. The Argentine has been out since December with a hamstring injury and, although he is back in training, the midfielder will not be rushed. Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed Gareth Bale will be involved after showing no ill-effects after his devastating display against Burnley on Sunday.

Mourinho’s View   
“They are a good team, good players and they know how to play. They are getting results and they are fighting for a big objective, to get out of the danger zone. It’s a difficult match. Everybody fights for objectives, different objectives, but objectives. It could be champions, top four, top six, top half of the table, trying to avoid relegation. I would say the Premier League is a league where ethical values are very present, and even when you arrive in the last couple of matches of the season, if a team doesn’t need anything, they have their pride and their ethical principles and everybody fights and everybody plays, so it’s always difficult. We won two matches (Wolfsberger AC, Burnley) and we can say, of course, Wolfsberg is not Premier League level, but to win 4-0 you have to play well. The match before was West Ham, where the feeling was, ‘result bad, performance very positive’. I believe we are going in the right direction, but we need to transform that into results.

STRICTLY SPURS FANS ONLY!!!

posted 1 day, 1 hour ago

don't rate sanchez but fair play to him, he played well overall today. once again, as hes such a bad defender, him being under constant pressure will eventually lead to mistakes that can be costly. the trick is to not have our defence under constant pressure...

Any team that wins a Premiership match with Doherty, Davies and Sissoko on the pitch at the same time, deserves a bit of praise.
----------------------------------------------------------------------


Add Sanchez to that mix. Still don’t like or rate him. Don’t care if he’s played slightly better, he still nearly f** Up with that clearance. Had that been allowed, we would be berating him. Awful defender that needs selling ASAP.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Sanchez also saved Spurs a couple of times Don. You are being very harsh.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
It is Sanchez`s job to save us, that is why he is in the team, his job is not to gift the opposition goals

Sanchez was superb against Burnley..

I’d sell Dier before Sanchez

kane wasn't great today, messed up a few times
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I've said it before and I still stand by it, he simply isn't as clinical as he was. His goal conversion rate and shot accuracy are some of the lowest of the top 25 scorers in the league.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Kane dropping and playing creator is killing his natural instinct for goal.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Agreed

It could just be a bit anomalous and he’s in a run of bad form. It could be because he’s a better finisher when he gets 5/6 shots a game.

I’m not being harsh mate. He’s f*** s**, as is Aurier. Difference is, we seem to have bought a worse right back in Doherty which is incredible. Sanchez is a clown 🤡 mate. Has a good 20 mins where you think “well done Sanchez”, then goes and makes game changing mistakes every single game. A complete calamity player

If it's the latter then it's not going to be improved by him being deeper. Like Troy has said I think the creative role he's now playing is taking some of his instinct away.

I’m thinking it may be the latter. His finishing does seem slightly worse in the bigger games too.

Instinct or sharpness...I don't really disagree. If you aren't used to having as many chances in the match, it will be more difficult for you to be sharper with your finishing.

It's like they say with keepers that it's often harder to be on your guard when you aren't used to facing shots all the time.
