How to watch TV, live stream, kick off time and team news
Tottenham will host Fulham on Wednesday night in a bid to return to victory after a four-game winless streak in the Premier League.
Spurs have been outspoken for much of their meeting with Wolves on Sunday, ending up conceding late as the hosts grabbed a well-deserved point. They are currently fifth, six points behind leaders Liverpool.
Fulham has shown greater defensive resilience in recent weeks, collecting two clean sheets in his last four league games, all four of which have been draws. They are 18th and have only managed two wins all season.

Tottenham lined up in a 3-4-1-2 formation on Sunday, apparently to counter Wolves’ three-way defense, although the hosts went four at the back for much of the game.
They are expected to return to their normal formation with Sergio Reguilon at left-back and Ben Davies dropping out, allowing one of Erik Lamela, Steven Bergwijn or Lucas Moura to replace the right wing.
Japhet Tanganga and Giovani Lo Celso are set to miss, as Gareth Bale is still worried, who limped after scoring the first game for Stoke in the Carabao Cup.
Fulham midfielder Mario Lemina missed the 0-0 draw at Southampton as he was not available to play against his parent club but is expected to feature here, although Terence Kongolo and Kenny Tete are doubtful of the shots.
Aleksandar Mitrovic could be shot up front after making an appearance off the bench against the Saints. Manager Scott Parker will be back on the sidelines after returning a second negative Covid test.
Tottenham: Lloris; Aurier, Dier, Alderweireld, Aurier; Hojbjerg, Sissoko; Son, Ndombele, Lamela; Kane.
Fulham: Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo; Cordova-Reid, Lemina, Reed, Anguissa, Robinson; Mitrovic, Lookman.

Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham (16/12)
Crystal Palace 1-1 Tottenham (13/12)
Fulham 0-0 Southampton (12/26)
Newcastle 1-1 Fulham (19/12)
Fulham 0-0 Brighton (16/12)
Fulham 1-1 Liverpool (13/12)
Manchester City 2-0 Fulham (5/12)
Tottenham’s marathon race with tricky encounters has finally come to an end, but Fulham presents a different challenge.
Jose Mourinho’s side have struggled to beat their opponents and have scored just 11 goals in their last ten Premier League games. They were particularly direct during the second half of the games.
Fulham have consistently collected four points in their last four appearances, being particularly impressive in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool. If they play with a similar intensity to what they showed against the Reds, the Spurs could have an awkward afternoon.
On paper, Spurs should come back to victory, but expect a hiccup along the way.
Prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Fulham
