FA Cup: Fulham v Tottenham preview

Fulham v Tottenham preview

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is available for Sunday's FA Cup fifth-round tie at Fulham.

The Belgium international has been absent since suffering an ankle ligament injury against West Brom in January.

Spurs have won two of their five matches without Vertonghen, most recently losing back-to-back games against Liverpool in the Premier League and Gent in the Europa League.

They squeaked past lower-league opposition in the fourth round of the FA Cup, scoring twice late on to beat League Two Wycombe at White Hart Lane.

Fulham's preparation for the visit of their London rivals has been good, with Slavisa Jokanovic's side winning four of their last five games.

They have already seen off one Premier League opponent in the competition after scoring four goals in a comprehensive victory over Hull City in the previous round.

Tomas Kalas is available for selection for the hosts but Ryan Fredericks is suspended.

Jokanovic also confirmed Marcus Bettinelli will start in goal for the Championship side.

Vertonghen is likely to start on the bench but Danny Rose and Erik Lamela are still out with knee and hip injuries respectively.

Harry Kane sustained a knock to his knee in Spurs' Europa League defeat to Gent on Thursday and may not be risked at Craven Cottage.
