Originally, Tottenham Hotspur were scheduled to face Aston Villa on Wednesday. However, due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the Villa squad, Fulham have had to step in at short notice.
This fixture was scheduled to be played a couple of weeks ago, but was postponed due to the Whites' own troubles with COVID-19.
Over the weekend, Tottenham played a famous FA Cup fixture against eighth-tier Marine AFC. They won the encounter 5-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Carlos Vinicius. There were also goals in that tie from Lucas Moura and teenager Alfie Devine.
Tottenham are currently four points behind league leaders Liverpool, with this being the game in hand for Jose Mourinho's side.
In their last league game, Tottenham beat Leeds 3-0, with goals from Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Toby Alderweireld.
Fulham last played a league game on Boxing Day, when they drew 0-0 with Southampton. They have since been in cup action, where they beat QPR 2-0 away from home.
Fulham have drawn their last four league games, and are currently just three points away from safety with a game in hand.
