Fulham visit White Hart Lane to face Tottenham Hotspur in the first Premier League match on New Year's Day 2011.

This will be the 133rd time the two clubs have met.

The first meeting came in the Southern League in September 1903 at Craven Cottage and resulted in a 0-0 draw. The reverse fixture at White Hart Lane in January 1904 was won by Spurs 1-0.

Fulham & Spurs also competed in the London League and both fixtures that season were won by Spurs 2-1 at home and 5-1 away.

The clubs competed against each other for three more seasons in the Southern League with Fulham winning four games, Spurs winning one and the remaining match drawn.

There were also two seasons in the Western League in 1904-05 and 1905-06 with Spurs winning twice, Fulham once and one game drawn.

The clubs met on tour in May 1907 in Ostend, Belgium in a match which Spurs won 2-1.

The first Football League meeting between the clubs came in the Second Division in December 1908 at Craven Cottage with Spurs winning 3-2. Tottenham also won the home fixture in April 1909 1-0 with the great Vivian Woodward scoring the winning goal. A few months earlier, Woodward had captained the Great Britain football team to their second of three Olympic Games Gold Medals.

Sandwiched in between those first League encounters was the first FA Cup match in the old second round (today's fourth round) at White Hart Lane, which was won by Spurs 2-0. To date, the clubs have met seven times in the FA Cup with Spurs winning five games and two draws.

As Spurs had won promotion to the First Division after their maiden season, there were no more League meetings with Fulham until after the First World War.

During the War, the clubs met frequently in the various competitions which were created to provide entertainment for the masses and many of Tottenham Hotspur's "home" matches were played at Arsenal's Highbury Stadium as White Hart Lane had been requisitioned by the Army.

When football resumed in 1919, Spurs had lost their First Division status to Arsenal under contraversial circumstances and met Fulham in the Second Division in December at Craven Cottage in a game Spurs won 4-1. The reverse fixture was also won by Spurs 4-0 on their way to the Second Division Championship.

There were no more competitive matches with Fulham until Spurs were relegated to the Second Division in 1932-33 and both fixtures ended in draws.

There were four more seasons of Second Division football before the outbreak of World War Two and honours were even with two wins apiece and four draws in those eight matches.

Spurs and Fulham met 13 times during the War with Tottenham winning nine games, Fulham one and three drawn matches.

The clubs met in the Second Division for the first three seasons after the War with one win each and four games drawn.

Spurs won the First Division Championship in 1950-51 and in the process did the "double" over Fulham 1-0 away and 2-1 at home.

The clubs met for another 10 seasons in the First Division up to 1967-68 with Spurs winning 12 games, Fulham one and 7 games drawn.

The next League meetings came in the Second Division in 1977-78 with Spurs taking four point off Fulham as they regained their Top Flight status.

The first of three Football League Cup meetings came in December 1981 with Spurs winning 1-0 at the Lane with a Micky Hazard goal.

Fulham were promoted to the Premier League for season 2001-02 and they've kept their place in the League ever since. Spurs have won seven of the 19 games played so far with Fulham winning six and six matches have been drawn.

The match at Craven Cottage earlier this season in October 2010 was won by Spurs 2-1 with goals from Roman Pavlyuchenko and Tom Huddlestone with Diomansy Kamara getting Fulham's goal.

Overall, Spurs have won 67 of the 132 matches played, Fulham have won 29 and the remaining 36 games have been drawn.

Morning all. This is another massive game for us, one you feel must swing our way.
But we've all seen it through the years, these are the ones we usually struggle with.
It'll be tough but I think ultimately we will get through it and importantly get a clean sheet to boost our goal difference. 2-0 Spurs for me.

Would someone from admin do the matchday thread for the Fulham game tomorrow please.

Think they are a bit disorganized at the , and I think we will take this 2-1, but also have a good feeling it could be another clean sheet 2-0?

Spurs are marching, so, let's say 3:0 (Bale, Lennon, Modric).

Happy New Year and big thanx THFC6061 for a nice piece of history.

Loving the look of Gallas/Dawson on the team sheet.

Another must win. You can bet your bottom dollar, Man City/Man Utd will grind another win out today.

Fulham at home = victory, if we play at all well.

EDIT - One thing I can't work out TH6061, why are some of the players in bold black ? I'm probably being really obtuse, and theres a simple answer.

2EDIT - Ah, they are all pictured at the bottom !!

Good morning gents. I like our chances in this match at home. Got a funny feeling we'll have the ball most of the game and they won't get very many looks at our end. I could easily see a 1-0 or 2-0 victory in this one assuming nothing odd/wacky happens.

I was wondering when we would see Gallas again. Other then he stepping in for Kaboul, this looks like the exact same lineup we started against Newcastle. I hope Palacios has a better game this time though.

Happy New Year to all.

We looked a little sloppy with our passes in the first 15...there were a few times Fulham almost capitalized.

No brainer. Him or Ledley are our captains.
