FA Cup Preview: Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur
Defeat against Fulham on Sunday is not on my agenda but the potential of being bounced out of two cup competitions within a week may just tip me over the edge (wibble!).
Personally, I would keep to the same starting XI who began against KAA Gent - they have a point to prove, don't they. On the other hand my hope might be dashed, especially when Poch confirmed during last night's post-match Europa League press conference that Harry picked up a minor knee injury and may not even make the bench.
Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose are still side-lined and so we'd better expect a blend of youth and experience when the lads turn out at Craven Cottage.

Another dire Spurs performance and defeat this weekend will, I think make me change my mind about whether Poch is suitable to coach at this level.
