KICK-OFF: Tottenham get the game underway.

The two sides are out on the pitch as we approach kick-off.

Marie Dougan is expecting a 3-0 win for Spurs, but is disappointed not to see Defoe start. Any predictions from any Fulham fans?

Paul Rockall is expecting a tighter game and is tipping Spurs to prevail 3-2.

Spurs fan Glenn Harris is confident and is going for a 4-1 home win.

Mathew Aitken is a nervous Spurs fan today feeling Aaron Lennon's absence is a big miss for the home side.

Will Ford via Twitter is unsure what position Assou Ekotto will be playing today. It looks like 3-5-2 for me for Spurs today so Assou Ekotto could be starting as a wing back.

David Newman is going for a 3-1 home win with Adebayor bagging a brace and Bale netting the other. What do you think?

Tottenham starting XI: Lloris; Naughton, Caulker, Dawson, Vertonghen; Sigurdsson, Dembele, Parker, Assou-Ekotto; Adebayor, Bale.

The teams are in...

Fulham don't have a particularly good scoring record against Spurs, having notched just twice in their last eight league meetings, making 'No' on both teams to score a good bet at 10/11. Tottenham to win to nil (6/4) may prove more lucrative, though, while the hosts to coast to a 3-0 win is a 9/1 Price Boost with Sky Bet.
