Fulham manager Scott Parker has been left entirely unimpressed by the Premier League, after his team were handed a late change of plans and now face Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night. Parker branded the decision “scandalous”, giving him only a couple of days to prepare to face one of the league’s top sides after the original fixture was postponed recently.
Tottenham can move level with Leicester, who are third, if they take a win – while Fulham will be hoping for three points and a defeat for Brighton in their match against Man City, which would leave the teams level in 17th and 18th, either side of the relegation zone line.

Erik Lamela is in contention for a recall after being left out following a rule-breach. Giovani Lo Celso is still out, though, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is also a doubt for Spurs, but should start.
Fulham could have a full squad to choose from, after resting a host of names at the weekend. Scott Parker’s big decision comes with who to start in attack out of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ademola Lookman.
TOT: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Bale, Ndombele, Son; Kane
FUL: Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo; Decordova-Reid, Lemina, Reed, Anguissa, Robinson; Cavaleiro, Lookman
Spurs’ opponent might have changed but if anything it’s for the better with a home game and weaker team, while Fulham come into this on short notice and not having been planning a fixture at all, making tactical work difficult. Home win as a result. Spurs 3-1 Fulham.
