Onomah Admits It Will Be Weird Playing Against Tottenham Hotspur In Fulham Colours
Anglo-Nigerian midfielder Josh Onomah admits it will be a weird feeling facing Tottenham Hotspur, where he spent fourteen years of his career before joining Fulham on a permanent deal in the summer of 2019.

Spurs battle the Cottagers in the Premier League on Wednesday, January 13, and the 2017 U20 World Cup winner is in contention to make his first appearance in the top-flight since September 19 after recovering from a long-term injury.

Onomah was one of Fulham's standout players in his comeback game last weekend, helping Scott Parker's side register a 2-0 road win vs Queens Park Rangers in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

"When the fixtures first came out, that was the first team I was looking for. It would be good to play against them, a team that I had been with basically my whole life," Onomah said to Fulham's official webpage.

"It would be quite weird because Tottenham is all I’d known for a long time, but now that Fulham is my home I can’t wait to go back there and hopefully come away with a win.

"Both teams have got positive momentum. Spurs have won a few recently but we’ve been doing well, too.

"Speaking to the lads, everyone is up for it, especially after not playing for a couple of weeks with everything that’s happened, so the lads can’t wait to get back playing Premier League football."

Onomah appeared in 32 official games for Tottenham Hotspur, scoring one goal, before ending his association with the north London club.
