Fulham boss Martin Jol rates Mousa Dembele ahead of his Tottenham teammate Gareth Bale.

It is £15million Dembele who causes Jol as much concern for today's clash at White Hart Lane.

Cottager's boss Jol said: "We wanted to keep Dembele. You can give him the ball and he won't give it away because he is too strong - even if there is no time and space.

"Spurs are strong. The nucleus of the team has been the same over the last few years so they can't be a one-man team.

"Bale's making a difference. But on the ball, pound for pound, Mousa is probably the best."
