It has been a disappointing 2010 so far for Spurs. Apart from the 4-0 drubbing of Peterborough in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup, Spurs have struggled to home draws against Hull City and Leeds United, and of course, an Anfield defeat to Liverpool. So you can understand my trepidation at the thought of Fulham at the Lane tonight.

Fulham are 12 points behind Spurs, having lost their way somewhat since the goal-less draw between the clubs on Boxing Day. Still, Fulham has proven itself to be a very organised & efficient team this season and is precisely the type of side that might defend stoutly for 90 minutes and grab a winner deep into injury time.

On the bright side, Fulham has a poor record at the Lane and has not been good on their travels this season. So once again, the impetus is on Spurs to take the game to the away side. After the poor performances of the last few games, what side will Harry Redknapp to take Spurs out of this slump?

Your guess is as good as mine. I am hoping for a Spurs win, naturally, but I am not too optimistic.
