Fulham captain Danny Murphy is a slight doubt for the visit of his old club Spurs.

The 34-year-old came off with a slight knee complaint in the second half of Thursday's 4-1 defeat of Wisla Krakow in the Europa League, but is hopeful of featuring on Sunday.

Bryan Ruiz was ineligible for the tie so will return against Spurs, as will Mousa Dembele who served a one-match European ban.

Orlando Sa (hamstring), Philippe Senderos and Aaron Hughes (both thigh) are out.

Spurs defender William Gallas could make his first Premier League appearance of the season at Fulham after he suffered no reaction when making his comeback from a calf injury in Thursday night's defeat to Rubin Kazan.

Luka Modric has a slight groin problem but should be fit while Roman Pavlyuchenko came off with a back complaint in his homeland on Thursday and will be monitored over the next couple of days.

Michael Dawson (Achilles), Niko Kranjcar (thigh) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle) are all out while there are doubts over Giovani dos Santos (calf), Vedran Corluka (foot), and Danny Rose (ankle).

Fulham (from): Schwarzer, Etheridge, Kelly, Riise, Hangeland, Baird, Dembele, Grygera, Briggs, Sidwell, Kasami, Murphy, Gecov, Duff, Etuhu, Dempsey, Johnson, Zamora, Ruiz.

Tottenham (from): Gomes, Friedel, Cudicini, Bale, Kaboul, Corluka, Bassong, Gallas, King, Walker, Assou-Ekotto, Rose, Parker, Modric, Livermore, Townsend, Carroll, Lennon, Falque, Sandro, Pienaar, Pavlyuchenko, Defoe, Dos Santos, Adebayor, Van der Vaart.
