Tony Gale wants Fulham to take advantage of Spurs' weakened side, knowing victory would provide a huge morale injection: “I want to see us get into them, get on the front foot early on, don’t give them a chance to settle in with what will be a makeshift forward line for them. To take something from that match would give us a huge confidence boost. It will still just be three points at the end of the day, but beating a big team does give you a real lift, without a doubt.”
Denis Odoi hopes the absence of Spurs' two top scorers works to Fulham's advantage, but knows they will have plenty of quality regardless of who leads the line: “Harry Kane is an unbelievable striker and, for me, Son is one of the best players to run deep and break lines, so for them that’s a big loss. But Tottenham is a top team and they have enough players to cope with those losses. But whoever replaces Kane will want to prove himself and show that the club can count on him, but Kane’s figures speak for themselves and Son was also on a really good run, so we can use the little [advantages] right now.”
Calum Chambers is fully focused on turning things around against Spurs on Sunday after a bizarre game at Burnley last weekend: “If you get a bad result, the next game, no matter who it is, is always going to be tough. Spurs are going to want to prove a point and bounce back as well, so we need to be on it 100 per cent.”
Claudio Ranieri wants the Whites to put the frustrating defeat against Burnley last week behind them as they welcome Tottenham to Craven Cottage on Sunday.
