Fulham boss Scott Parker and defender Joachim Andersen have both fired warning shots at Tottenham Hotspur by insisting that the Cottagers will be looking to get all three points in the London derby on Thursday.
Tottenham’s back-to-back 4-0 wins over Wolfsberger and Burnley seems to have restored some confidence back in the Spurs squad.
With Gareth Bale and Dele Alli also hitting form at the right time and key players returning back from injury, Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his side can put together a run of results.
On their back of their win over Burnley on Sunday, Spurs now sit just six points off West Ham in fourth with a game in hand over the Hammers.
Their next opponents, Fulham come into the match in very good form, unbeaten in their last five games.
Andersen admitted that the Cottagers are confident on the back of their performance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in January that they can get the better of the North Londoners.
The Dane told the club’s official website: “There is no need to show fear, we know and we have shown all season that no matter who we are playing we can show a good performance. Last time we played them I feel we could have won so let’s go win on Thursday.
“We should have won by two or three goals [against Palace on Sunday]. It is really frustrating but again a really positive performance and something we need to build on. We have to believe the goals will come and they will.”
Parker also admitted that his players will be looking to beat Spurs on Thursday.
The former Tottenham midfielder said: “I see points coming from the next game.
“I believe in this team and the team believes as well. I believe we can beat Spurs.
“We can go into the Thursday game and cause them problems.”

It is vitally important that we continue to build momentum with a win over Fulham on Thursday. If we were to lose at Craven Cottage, it will be a massive blow to the players’ confidence and the result against Burnley will count for very little.
