Tottenham Hotspur take on Hull City in the Premier League at White Hart Lane on 14 December, Wednesday.

Where to watch

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT. There is no live TV coverage of the match between Tottenham and Hull City in the United Kingdom.


Tottenham suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United in the last league fixture at Old Trafford on 11 December. Henrikh Mkhitaryan's brilliant first half goal was the difference between the two sides.

The north London club loss against the Red Devils was their second league defeat of the season, following their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. They are still unbeaten in the home matches in the Premier League and will be looking to extend the record on Wednesday.

Mauricio Pochettino will be without the services of three key players for the clash against the Tigers. Mousa Dembele picked up a foot injury in defeat to United and he joins attacker Erik Lamela and summer signing Vincent Janssen in the list of players to miss the clash.

Hull enter this fixture after failing to beat Crystal Palace in the last fixture. It was Robert Snodgrass, who gave them an early lead after converting from the spot kick, which he had won for his side.
Adama Diomande netted the second goal for his side, which had cancelled Wilfried Zaha's brilliant strike. Jake Livermore gave Mike Phelan's side the much needed lead in the 78th minute, but it was Fraizer Campbell's 89th minute goal that saw Palace walk away from the KCOM Stadium with a point.

The Tigers have only one win in the last five league fixtures and Phelan will be hoping his side can beat the north London club in their own backyard when these two clubs face each other at The Lane.

What managers say

Mauricio Pochettino: "Many things can happen. Ten points is a big gap but in football anything can happen. I always believe we can win games and perform and fight to produce more. We are nearly in the same position. Last season it was "Wow Tottenham" and this season the expectation is higher and that's why we feel a little bit disappointed. The Champions League was disappointing for the fans and the players and the coaching staff, for everyone. But if you analyse the cold numbers they are similar to last season," Pochettino explained, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

Mike Phelan: "We have to learn quickly that we have to take part in the game a little bit higher up the field. "We have to cause problems for the opposition and probably be a bit more adventurous. We've shown signs of that in the early part of the season but we've taken our foot off the gas a little bit when going away. We need that little bit more belief. It's two football teams that want to be competitive and they'll throw some challenges at us that we'll have to deal with. But hopefully we can do the same to them and maybe put them under pressure at times to see how they handle it," Phelan was reported as saying by the Hull Daily Mail.
