last updated Friday 28th August 2009, 3:56 PM

Fulham (from):

Schwarzer, Zuberbuhler, Stockdale,

Paintsil, Stoor, Kelly, Hughes, Hangeland, Baird, Konchesky, Smalling,

Murphy, Etuhu, Riise, Seol, Greening, Duff, Andranik,

Nevland, Kamara, Zamora, Dempsey.

Fulham's Clint Dempsey is expected to overcome an ankle injury in time to make the trip.

Manager Roy Hodgson will give late fitness tests to Danny Murphy (calf), Paul Konchesky (knee) and Bobby Zamora (Achilles) while Andrew Johnson (shoulder), Simon Davies (foot) and Toni Kallio (Achilles) are out.

Jonathan Greening could make his debut but fellow new signing Kagisho Dikgacoi, who completed a move from South African club Golden Arrows on Thursday, is still lacking match fitness.

Aston Villa (from):

Friedel, Guzan,

Beye, Davies, Cuellar, Shorey, Warnock,

Lowry, Gardner, Milner, Reo-Coker, Sidwell, Petrov, Delph, Albrighton,

A Young, Heskey, Carew, Agbonlahor.

Aston Villa central defender Curtis Davies is a major doubt for Sunday's Premier League clash with visiting Fulham.

Davies suffered yet another recurrence of his long-standing shoulder problem during the Europa League qualifier with Rapid Vienna on Thursday.

Youngster Shane Lowry could replace Davies if Villa have failed to complete the signing of Manchester City skipper Richard Dunne in time.

Left-back Stephen Warnock will be in line for his debut after completing his move from Blackburn on a four-year deal.
