Brede Hangeland says he wants to add to Tottenham's misery and make it back to back defeats for the north London club when they take on Fulham this weekend.

Spurs' unbeaten 12 match run came to an end on Sunday as a series of comical defensive errors consigned them to a 3-2 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield.

Andre Villas-Boas' side remain in third place for the time being, and the Portuguese boss will be confident of getting back to winning ways this weekend having not tasted defeat at White Hart Lane since November.

However Hangeland has different ideas, and says wants to see Fulham put a further dent in Tottenham's push for Champions League football.

"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.”

Tottenham secured a 3-0 win over Fulham when the met back in December, with two goals from Jermain Defoe and a long-range strike from Sandro doing the job.

Hangeland admits he is wary of the quality Tottenham possess. 

The Fulham defender said: "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."
