Fulham has been nudged closer to Premier League relegation, after losing to Everton 3-1. An own goal in the 50th minute opened up the scoring. Despite a strike from Ashkan Dejagah, it wasn't enough to overpower Everton.

The result leaves Fulham rooted to the foot of the table, five points adrift of safety. Everton is now just 4 points behind 4th placed Arsenal on the table.

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

Tottenham 'out for revenge' when they take on Fulham

Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker says his team will be out for revenge when they take on Fulham in Wednesday's derby at Craven Cottage.

At the turn of the year, Spurs looked certainties for Champions League qualification. But their form dropped towards the end of the campaign and, once again, Arsenal just pipped them to fourth position for the second successive season.

Kyle Walker said: "Last season when Fulham came to White Hart Lane they beat us, so we owe them something for that. I don't like losing any game, but I think that game was the turning point from last season."

Tottenham provisional squad to face Fulham

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is a major doubt for Wednesday's game against Fulham, as he struggles with a groin problem. Midfielder Christian Eriksen, defender Danny Rose and striker Harry Kane are all out.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas

Manager Andre Villas-Boas has to decide whether to keep faith with forward Roberto Soldado, or recall Jermain Defoe.

The Tottenham provisional squad is: Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Archer, Walker, Naughton, Vertonghen, Chiriches, Dawson, Kaboul, Fryers, Sandro, Capoue, Dembele, Paulinho, Lamela, Lennon, Townsend, Chadli, Sigurdsson, Holtby, Adebayor, Defoe, Soldado.

Fulham facing 'massive challenge' in Premier League

Fulham sit three points from safety, but have a difficult home fixture against Tottenham on Wednesday.

It's a massive challenge. But when you're faced with a challenge like this it comes down to making sure you get the basic things right.

You need to stay mentally strong and make sure the fans are getting behind the team. We need to make sure the players are mentally strong and believe.

– Rene Meulensteen
