FT
The referee brings the match to an end. Tottenham have won 3-1 to leave Fulham with no points to boost their survival bid.

90+2
Fulham are enjoying a spell of possession but it doesn't come to anything as Kacaniklic runs the ball out of play.

90+1
We are in the first of three minutes of additional time.

90
The free-kick from Soldado is awful. He fires the ball high and well wide of goal.

90
Tottenham break and Townsend wins a free-kick on the edge of the box as he's fouled by Sidwell.

89
The corner from the right is cleared as Lloris punches clear.

88
Karagounis' free-kick is headed behind for a corner by Kaboul.

87
Good work from Kaboul as he ushers the ball behind for a goal-kick under pressure from Dejagah.

85
Tottenham make their final change with Andros Townsend replacing Eriksen.

84
Adebayor tries to work a one-two with Soldado but the return pass is poor and Fulham clear. The Tottenham striker should have fired a shot at goal when he had the chance.

82
Kaboul attempts to find Adebayor behind the Fulham defence but the ball rushes away for a goal-kick.

81
Tottenham clear the corner as Kacaniklic fails to take control of the ball on the edge of the box.

80
Rodallega's powerful shot is deflected behind for a corner by Kaboul.

79
Tottenham make a second change with Roberto Soldado replacing Kane in attack.

78
It was a powerful penalty from Sidwell but there wasn't too far for Lloris to move and he kept it out. Good save from the Tottenham goalkeeper.

77
MISSED PENALTY! Lloris is the hero as he turns Sidwell's penalty away from the right hand side of his goal. Tottenham still lead 3-1.

76
Fulham have hope. The ball hits Eriksen on the arm as Rodallega tries to flick it over him and the referee rightly points to the spot.

74
Dejagah then gets caught offside as he tries to find space behind the Tottenham defence. Still nothing for the hosts to worry about.

73
A driven effort from Dejagah doesn't cause Lloris any problems as the ball drifts wide of his right hand post.

72
Naughton's cross from the right evades Kane and Fulham are able to clear.

71
All about Tottenham in this match now. They have been in complete control of the second half and only Rodallega's header just after Kane's goal has worried them.

70
Good work from Riise to win the ball from Lennon on the edge of the box. Fulham quickly lose the ball again and another spell of Tottenham possession starts.

69
Tottenham make their first change of the afternoon with Mousa Dembele replacing Chadli.

68
Fulham have an optimistic appeal for a penalty turned down as Kacaniklic tumbles close to Rose. Nothing doing and the referee rightly waves play on.

67
The change is made with Heitinga leaving the field through injury to be replaced by Elsad Zverotic.

66
Fulham are preparing to make their second change of the afternoon.

65
Kaboul wins the ball from Kacaniklic with a crunching challenge. Fulham need some extra spark and they need it soon.

63
All to do for Fulham now. They haven't been at the races since half-time and Tottenham have taken advantage to move 3-1 ahead.

62
GOAL KABOUL! Kaboul makes it 3-1 as he turns home another terrific free-kick from Eriksen. The ball was fired across goal from the left flank and all the Tottenham defender had to do was divert it in from close-range.

61
Heitinga becomes the first player to be booked. He gets a yellow card for a clumsy challenge to bring down Rose on the left flank.

60
Fulham have been put under pressure at the start of this half. They ended the opening 45 minutes on top but it has been tough going since then.

58
The free-kick is played short and the resulting cross is headed wide of goal by Fryers.

57
Tottenham win a free-kick down the right as Kane is bundled to the ground. This is a chance to get a cross into the box.

56
Fulham make their first change with Giorgos Karagounis taking over from Parker.

55
Lennon's cross from the right evades Kane and Adebayor to allow Fulham to bring the ball clear. Tottenham well on top at the start of this half bar Rodallega's header.

54
Eriksen's corner from the right is headed clear by Riise.

53
Kane sends a cross across goal but Fulham get to the ball first and concede a corner.

52
Looks like Fulham are preparing to make their first change of the afternoon.

51
The corner comes to nothing as Tottenham clear.

50
Rodallega sends an excellent header at goal from just inside the penalty box. Lloris is equal to the danger and turns the ball over the bar for a corner.

49
That is just the start Fulham didn't want. They have it all to do now in the hunt for points to boost their survival bid.

48
GOAL KANE! Lennon's great cross from the right is headed home by Kane from the edge of the six-yard box. That was a good finish and Tottenham go 2-1 up at the start of the second half.

47
Tottenham keep the ball early on but Fulham have plenty of men in defence.

46
He we go again!

The players are out on the pitch. Not long until we get back under way.

Sky Bet make Tottenham the 4/5 favourites to win this match, Fulham are 4/1 and the draw can be backed at 15/8. The Price Boosts are: Tottenham to win 3-1 at 8/1, the match to end 1-1 at 5/1, Paulinho to score next at 12/1 and Steve Sidwell to score next at 18/1.

HT
The referee blows his whistle to bring the first half to an end. The match is level at 1-1 and that's good news for Fulham's survival bid.

45+1
Lloris does well to claim the ball as Fulham fire a long ball forward into the box.

45
There will be two minutes of additional time.

44
A weak header from Adebayor is easily gathered by Stockdale. The striker was stretching for the ball.

43
Kaboul ushers the ball back to Lloris as Sidwell looks to storm forward. The Fulham midfielder is providing plenty of attacking threat.

42
Fulham again find plenty of space close to the Tottenham goal. Rodallega wastes the chance to get a shot at goal as he loses the ball to Lennon.

40
Dejagah is caught offside as he tries to find space behind the Tottenham defence. Hard to call this match now. The hosts have the extra quality in attack but are looking really, really shaky in defence.

39
Fulham are playing with plenty of pace since the equaliser. Tottenham haven't looked secure at the back all day and that was proved as they allowed Sidwell space before his goal.

37
GOAL SIDWELL! Sidwell charges into the box and beats Lloris with a really nice lofted finish. Fulham didn't take long to respond and now we are level at 1-1. Game on!

36
That goal has been coming. Tottenham were starting to take control and now have the lead.

35
GOAL PAULINHO! Eriksen's free-kick from the right is fantastic. He fires the ball across goal to beat the Fulham defence and leave Paulinho with a simple tap-in. The Tottenham midfielder couldn't miss and didn't.

34
Lennon wins a free-kick down the right as he is blocked by Ashkan Dejagah. Correct decision from the referee, who hasn't had much to do so far.

32
Riise concedes a throw deep inside his own half as Tottenham continue to force Fulham back.

30
It has been an enjoyable first half so far. Both sides have created chance but Tottenham are starting to take control as the minutes tick by.

29
Eriksen tries to slide a pass through to Kane but Riise spots the danger and clears.

28
A long ball forward from Fernando Amorebieta goes straight through to Lloris. The Tottenham goalkeeper hasn't been busy since saving an effort from Rodallega.

27
That is the closest we've come to a goal so far today. Fulham remain level thanks to Stockdale.

26
A fantastic save from Stockdale keeps out a half-volley from Lennon. That effort wasn't far away from finding the back of the net.

25
Lennon sends a volley from the edge of the box high, high, high over the bar. That caused more problems for the people in the top rows of the stand.

24
The corner from the right comes to nothing as Tottenham easily fire the ball clear.

23
Fulham win another corner as Paulinho knocks the ball behind.

22
Paulinho concedes a free-kick for a clumsy challenge on Parker.

21
Fulham work the corner from the left short and Kacaniklic sees a powerful effort blocked under pressure. Both sides are creating chances.

20
Fulham go up the other end and nearly take the lead. Lloris does really well to close down Rodallega and stop his effort with a strong save. Corner to the away side.

19
The next Eriksen corner from the right falls to Younes Kaboul after a scramble but the defender can only send a header over the bar.

18
Christian Eriksen's corner is knocked behind for another go by John Arne Riise at the near post.

17
Tottenham win a corner as the ball deflects behind of William Kvist.

15
Kacaniklic's cross from the left evades Steve Sidwell and goes out of play for a Tottenham throw on the opposite flank. The hosts are looking shaky in defence, It was a mistake from Fryers to give Fulham the ball.

14
Tottenham now enjoy a good spell of possession. Plenty of work for Fulham to do at the back.

12
Kacaniklic has a shot from the edge of the box blocked by Zeki Fryers. Tottenham easily clear.

11
Tottenham are starting to control more of the play. Fulham aren't allowing them any time on the ball though and Rodallega is looking lively in attack.

10
Kyle Naughton sends a loose pass out of play for a Fulham goal-kick.

9
Nacer Chadli's cross from the right has too much height and pace on it. The ball goes racing away and out of play on the opposite flank for a Fulham throw.

7
A deflected effort from Harry Kane is gathered at the second attempt by David Stockdale. That's the first bit of activity for the Fulham goalkeeper this afternoon.

6
Fulham have made the brighter start to this match. Victory would see them move out of the relegation zone.

5
Parker returns to the field and play gets started again.

4
We have a break in play for Scott Parker to receive treatment after a collision with Emmanuel Adebayor.

3
Hugo Rodallega beats the offside trap and decides to send a first-time half-volley well wide of goal. He should have taken control and run through one-on-one with Lloris.

2
Alex Kacaniklic storms down the right and sends a low effort wide of Hugo Lloris' near post.

1
Here we go!

The players are out on the pitch. Time for the handshakes and then the action starts!

Good afternoon to Cian: "Good afternoon! Can't wait to see which way this one turns out! Really excited. I really can't see Fulham getting anything out of this but you never know. I'm going for a 3-1 win for Tottenham with Adebayor (1) Eriksen (2) and Rodallega for Fulham."

Tottenham are 8/15 to win this match with Sky Bet, Fulham can be backed at 9/2 and the draw is available at 16/5. The firm's Price Boosts are: Christian Eriksen to score first at 15/2 from 11/2, Hugo Rodallega to score first at 10/1 from 9/1, Tottenham to win 3-0 at 12/1 from 11/1 and Fulham to win 2-1 at 20/1 from 16/1.
