Fulham happy to be underdogs against Spurs - Hangeland

Fulham defender Brede Hangeland insists there's no reason to fear Tottenham.

Fulham have lost only one of their last five — to runaway League leaders Manchester United — and Hangeland is hopeful of upsetting the odds.

“They are right now are one of the top teams in the country,” said the centre-half. “I’m sure many will see Spurs as the favourites. But that’s fine, we know what we are capable of and we like to think we can take something from the game.”

Hangeland added: "Andre Villas-Boas has them playing some really good football this term, and throughout their squad they have some very talented players.

"Gareth Bale is in fine form, whilst they also have the likes of Aaron Lennon, Mousa Dembele and Jermain Defoe who can make a difference in the final third."
