Fulham are currently eighteenth in the table and remain in the relegation zone, whilst opponents Norwich are one place and five points ahead of them.

Kvist has played 44 times for his country and is a former team mate of Fulham's Norwegian centre-back Brede Hangeland. He said Hangeland had convinced him top join Fulham as the side battles to stay in the Premier League.

"Of course I've heard a lot of good things from Brede and it's been a target of mine to come here so I'm delighted to be here.

"The Premier League is the biggest league in the world. I've played in the Bundesliga which is also a really nice league, but this is the biggest challenge you could get as a footballer - this is the motherland of football."

An 11-year-old London boy has raised thousands of pounds for children affected by the Philippines typhoon.

Charlie Simpson from Fulham was so upset by news of last month's disaster that he decided to organise a 40km (25-mile) sponsored bike ride.

He even had some expert advice on the eve of his challenge, with Olympian Sir Chris Hoy taking part in a training ride with Charlie.

It took Charlie just under four hours to complete the challenge in Fulham's South Park, accompanied by his dad Dan Simpson and 12-year-old friend Sophia Ground.

The schoolboy has so far raised more than £4,000 for Unicef's Philippines children's emergency appeal, which will help them provide emergency food, water and medicines to those in need.

Tottenham clash with Fulham: 'No game is easy'

Fulham's players will be out to impress their new manager Rene Meulensteen tonight and Kyle Walker knows it would be foolish to write the west London club off:

It will still be difficult. No game is easy. It's a London derby. They are fighting for things just like we are fighting for things.

We need to dig in like we did against Manchester United on Sunday, show enthusiasm and desire that we want to go out and win and if we do then I think we will get the result.

– Kyle Walker
