Fulham will continue to monitor defender Tomas Kalas. Kalas, who had been out with a hip problem, travelled with the Czech Republic for the China Cup, so will be assessed.

Manager Slavisa Jokanovic reported has no other fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip to Carrow Road.

The Cottagers will be out to extend an unbeaten run which stretches to 16 matches which has seen them climb to third in the table.

Fulham have won five of their last eight away league visits to Carrow Road (D2 L1), winning 3-1 last season.

Fulham have completed 8,718 passes in the opposition half this season, at least 1,000 more than any other Championship side.

These two sides have also attempted the fewest long passes in the Championship this season - Fulham (2,244) and Norwich (2,464).

The four players to complete the most successful short passes in this season's Championship are all Fulham players (McDonald, Cairney, Ream and Johansen).

Norwich winger Onel Hernandez has a hamstring problem and will not feature in the Easter schedule, which starts with the Sky Bet Championship visit of Fulham.

Defender Grant Hanley will be available despite returning early from Scotland duty because of shin splints, but Wales forward Marley Watkins will be assessed after travelling back from China.

Midfielder Alex Tettey, though, is back in contention following a foot injury, while forward Nelson Oliveira is fit from his calf problem.

Winger Matt Jarvis continues his recovery from a long-term ankle injury, while midfielders Moritz Leitner (hamstring) and Marco Stiepermann (groin) are also still receiving treatment along with Tom Trybull (ankle/knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles).

Norwich have won just one of their last 21 matches against Fulham in all competitions (D6 L14), a 4-2 win at Carrow Road in May 2015.

James Maddison has scored the winning goal in six Championship games this season, a joint-high along with Derby's Matej Vydra.
