Head to head
Fulham entertain Tottenham in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday. Read the match preview for Fulham v Tottenham betting tips. The Championship side eliminated Premier League opposition in the previous round and take on a Spurs side that has lost twice in less than a week.
Fulham v Tottenham
Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has no injury concerns but will be missing former Tottenham midfielder Ryan Fredericks through suspension. Scottish international striker Chris Martin scored in the 4-1 victory over Hull in the last round and is expected to return to the starting lineup after missing the midweek win against Nottingham Forest. Lucas Paizon, who scored the second in the 3-2 win, could be asked to make way.
Tottenham are expected to make changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Gent in the Europa League on Thursday. Harry Kane looks set to miss out after picking up a knock in Gent while Danny Rose and Eric Lamela are still recovering from injury problems. Vincent Janssen, Kieran Trippier and Heung-min Son are among the options for manager Mauricio Pochettino.Back the Draw at 3/1 with Betfred

Fulham v Tottenham Prediction
Fulham have won 10 of the last 11 games at Craven Cottage and showed no respect to Premier League Hull when destroying the Tigers 4-1 in the fourth round. The Cottagers have won twice at home this week, winning both games by the odd goal in five against Wigan and Nottingham Forest.
Tottenham’s form has been tailing off of late and the North London side has only scored once in the last four games, when scraping a 1-0 win at home to Premier League strugglers Middlesbrough. They have failed to score in the last three away games and go into Sunday’s game on the back of defeats at Liverpool and Gent in the space of five days.
Fulham have lost their last three home games against Tottenham and will feel they are meeting their London rivals at a good time to put the record straight. Tottenham have been guilty of wasting opportunities and the introduction of Heung-min Son could be the remedy.
