Fulham will wear an alternative red kit in their Premier League match against Tottenham on Saturday.

A clash between Tottenham’s home and Fulham’s navy blue away strip means Slavisa Jokanovic’s side will turn out in red this afternoon.

The shirt, which is not listed as the club’s official third kit, bears a resemblance to Fulham’s away shirt from the 2016-17 season and is not available through the club’s official store.

The Cottagers suffered a 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at home in their opening match of the 2018-19 season last week with Jokanovic making three changes to his side this afternoon.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah, signed on loan from Manchester United on transfer deadline day, comes in for his debut at right-back. André-Frank Zambo Anguissa also makes his first start for the club, coming in to join Tom Cairney and Jean Michael Seri in midfield.

Aboubakar Kamara is also back in the side, coming in to join Aleksandar Mitrović and Ryan Sessegnon in attack with Andre Schurrle dropping to the bench,
