Martin Jol’s side went unbeaten against Arsenal, Chelsea and QPR and only Tottenham have taken all three points off the Whites

Fulham manager Martin Jol is hoping to continue his success in London derbies when his side face Tottenham on Sunday.

The Whites beat and drew with Arsenal, drew both games against Chelsea, did the double over QPR and the only derby they have lost was to Spurs.

“I want to get the three points on Sunday,” Jol said. “There’s no pressure on us this weekend and hopefully we’ll enjoy the game.

“We’ve had a good season but our final league position is not in our own hands on Sunday. The only thing which is in our own hands is to go out and get a good result against Spurs.

“We wanted to finish in the top 10 this season and we’re now in a fine position. It would be marvellous to get another three points on Sunday and finish the season on 55 points.

“We’re the top team in the London derby games which is a good statistic.

“Spurs are the only team to have beaten us and we deserved more from that game at Craven Cottage. I think we were the better team but they had four attempts on goal and scored three goals. That is efficiency and they’re a very good football team.”
