Premier League preview: Tottenham vs Fulham

11 Mei 2012

koclokindoblog, 11 Mei 2012,Tottenham host Fulham on the final day of the Premier League season knowing three points could secure a Champions League berth next season.

Tottenham, in fourth on 66 points, trail London rivals Arsenal, who travel to West Bromwich Albion, by one point with one game to play.

Should they win and Arsenal falter, Tottenham would leapfrog the Gunners into third and clinch a spot in the Champions League group stage.

Should Arsenal win however, Tottenham would be left in a fight for fourth with Newcastle United, in fifth on 65 points, facing Everton away.

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul believes his side deserve a shot at joining Manchester City and Manchester United in the Champions League.

"Arsenal and Newcastle have both been good, but we've been more consistent," Kaboul told the Best of Africa Awards in London.

"Let's hope that we can play in the Champions League next season because I think we deserve it after the great season we've had.

"We are going to give everything on Sunday to win and show the country we are here, and we want to play in the Champions League next season."

Fulham have won five and drawn one of their last seven games and could finish as high as seventh with three points from their journey to north London.

While Fulham have failed to score in six of their last seven trips to White Hart Lane, manager Martin Jol, who was sacked as Tottenham boss in 2007, insists there is no pressure on his side to perform.

"At the start of the season, when I saw the schedule, and I saw the game against Spurs in the last game of the season, I thought it could be difficult," Jol told the Ealing Gazette.

"An away game at Spurs, if there's a lot to play for, is a difficult game. But now we have 52 points, there's no problem and we can enjoy the day.

"If we can get three points there, we can get to seventh. It will be exciting and I love this excitement."

Benoit Assou-Ekotto will miss with a dislocated shoulder and Niko Krancjar is also unavailable, while Bryan Ruiz and Andy Johnson are missing for Fulham.
