Jose Mourinho has claimed Fulham should apologise for jeopardising the completion of the Premier League if they turn up at Tottenham with a full-strength team.

'Do you want to finish the season or not?' snapped Spurs boss Mourinho as angry accusations flew from both sides ahead of Wednesday night's hastily rearranged London derby.

Fulham boss Scott Parker said it was 'scandalous' and 'blatantly wrong' for his team to be forced into a game at such short notice — to ease Tottenham's congested fixture list.

'I'm angry, I'm disappointed,' fumed Parker. 'Do I believe this would happen if it was a top-of-the-table clash? No I don't. I don't think it should happen to anyone. It is very unfair.'

Fulham have players only just back from isolation and claim they would have taken a different approach to Saturday's FA Cup tie at QPR, won in extra time, had they known they were at Spurs four days later.

'We're not making this up,' insisted Parker as he stressed the 'integrity of the game' and the 'welfare of the players' but there was little sympathy from Spurs. 

Fulham were next set to take on Chelsea on Friday, but they now face Spurs two days earlier
