Just a couple of weeks ago Fulham looked dead and buried, but two consecutive wins have seen Felix Magath's side move to within a couple of points of Norwich City and safety. They'll look to make it three-in-a-row in Saturday's early kickoff, as they travel to face Tim Sherwood's inconsistent Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs have blown bizarrely hot and cold since Sherwood took over, and head into this game on the back of a topsy-turvy 3-3 draw away at West Bromwich Albion. It was a crazy game which just about summed up Sherwood's entire tenure, leaving them sixth in the table, six points adrift of Everton and three clear of Manchester United.
They continue to struggle with a string of injury problems, with Étienne Capoue, Jan Vertonghen, Michael Dawson, Kyle Walker, Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado unavailable. Mousa Dembélé should be fit to face his former club, though Paulinho and Nacer Chadli could make up Spurs' central midfield duo. Fulham will be without Kostas Mitroglou, Damien Duff and Spurs loanee Lewis Holtby, with Dan Burn and Giorgos Karagounis in doubt.
