Things aren't quite clicking for Tottenham Hotspur at the moment, but at least they now come up against a side that is really struggling.
Hull City were denied a valuable three points by former player Fraizer Campbell, who struck late for Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Mike Phelan's men remain stuck in the relegation mire and may need a miracle if they wish to leave White Hart Lane with a point.

It’s a big game for…
Michael Dawson: The former Spurs centre back spent nine years as a player at White Hart Lane and will be eager to silence the home crowd on his return. Hull have conceded 16 goals in their previous five away games and Dawson will need to keep Harry Kane on a tight leash if they are to prevent another rout on the road.
Weird /best stat…
32: After conceding 32 goals this season so far, Hull have the worst record in the Premier League and the second worst in Europe.
Hull City 1 Tottenham 2, Premier League, November 2014
A superb Jake Livermore strike put his old club behind but a second half comeback was completed by Spurs a minute from time when Christian Eriksen rifled into the bottom corner.
Player to watch…
Christian Eriksen: The Denmark international has been in fine form of late and could be the man to get Spurs back to winning ways after Sunday’s 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford. Eriksen has scored three in his last four games and two of which came at White Hart Lane in a 5-0 rout over Swansea two weeks ago.
