Fulham have hit back at Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho in a cheeky tweet ahead of the Premier League meeting between the two clubs.
It is a fixture that has been hastily rearranged amid Covid-19 issues at Aston Villa, who Spurs were due to face on Wednesday evening.
The Premier League decided on Monday that they would take on Fulham instead, with Scott Parker’s side having gone 120 minutes with QPR in the FA Cup at the weekend.
It led to Parker fuming, stating: “Maybe the people in these places making these decisions don’t understand how you manage teams and manage players. You are constantly working out well in advance.”
Mourinho hit back, saying that the Fulham manager should not be complaining if he is able to field a strong team.
And he did exactly that on Wednesday, though in an apparent dig at Mourinho, Fulham’s Twitter account posted their line-up along with the caption: “Scott thinks this is the best approach for tonight!”
Mourinho believes Parker had no leg to stand on following the rearrangement.

The Tottenham boss had said: “We played every week three matches a week. We played in one week, four matches. They played Saturday against QPR. They have Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to prepare for the game.
“If they come with half of the team, I will be the first one to apologise to them, and I will be the first to say we played this game with an advantage.
“If they come with their best team, I think they should apologise to all of us.

"The biggest impact is to have matches postponed… that is the biggest impact.
"The changing of the order of the matches, the impact is minimal I would say.
"In the end you have to play 19 matches at home and 19 away, and two matches against every team.
"So if it is to help the Premier League, it's a solution we all have to accept as a positive solution."
