Fulham vs. Tottenham, FA Cup Preview: Three questions with Cartilage Free Captain

Tottenham's Eric Dier in action with Gent's Jeremy Perbet

In turn, his confidence is undoubtedly at an all-time low now, with Pochettino not even confirming that he would be on the bench for this weekend's FA Cup clash with Fulham.

As such, Betway's 3/4 (1.75) quote for fewer than three goals to be scored when these two teams lock horns represents good value for punters ahead of Thursday's Europa League tussle.

The defeats at Anfield and the Ghelamco Arena have called the Lilywhites' ability to thrive under pressure into question once more, particularly in the wake of Tottenham's capitulation in last season's Premier League title race.

Mauricio Pochettino has done even better at White Hart Lane, but they make the trip across London reeling from a damaging league defeat at Liverpool and Thursday's shock Europa League loss at Gent.

Barca's season is on the brink of collapse after they were thrashed 4-0 by Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League last 16.

Janssen's solitary Premier League strike this season came against Leicester City, with an eight-game barren run then endured before he found the target in a FA Cup meeting with Wycombe Wanderers.

In the end, it's Tottenham and we lost both games. "After the Liverpool game maybe our confidence dropped a little bit but today was a different competition".

The Argentinian is also likely to give some of his fringe players a run-out with the likes of Vincent Janssen, and Moussa Sissoko poised to start. He needs to show more and we'll see. "In the second half we changed our formation to try and find a solution and play better, and during a better period for us, we conceded a goal".

"Of course - I don't see why we cannot turn it around", Dier added when asked whether Spurs can still get past the Belgian outfit. When I watch, I will be hoping for a good game. We were not afraid to play and that is a victory in itself for me. But, at the moment, we can not be sure if he will be on the squad, on the bench or start from the beginning.
