Fulham will be without suspended midfielder Kevin McDonald, who is serving a one-match ban after being sent off during the weekend defeat to Bournemouth.

Defender Joe Bryan (hamstring) remains unavailable, but 15-year-old midfielder Harvey Elliott, who became the youngest player in the club's history in the third round win at Millwall, will travel with the squad.

Fulham have lost four successive matches since their second-round win over Millwall in September to drop into the Premier League relegation zone.

Head coach Slavisa Jokanovic hopes Thursday's game can kick-start their season ahead of their match against Huddersfield in the Premier League on Monday.

"This game has arrived at a good time for us," said Jokanovic. "We can improve our process, ahead of an important challenge on Monday night. We're approaching this in a positive mood. We must be ready for the fight.

"We are not so satisfied with our start in the Premier League, and this game can give us an opportunity to find a better mood and find a better way to play football."

Ilkay Gundogan could return for Manchester City against Fulham in the Carabao Cup fourth round on Thursday.

Gundogan has been out for nearly a month with a hamstring injury but resumed training this week.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola is expected to rotate his side for what will be the second of five games in 13 days.

Ben Foden, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Brahim Diaz all started for the holders against Oxford United in the last round and could feature again at Etihad Stadium.
