Fulham have Kevin McDonald available following suspension.

They are also hopeful Stefan Johansen and Neeskens Kebano will be fit to return and Sheyi Ojo is close to returning from a dislocated shoulder.

Johansen has been missing through illness, while Kebano had a hip injury.

On-loan Chelsea forward Lucas Piazon remains sidelined while he works his way back from a broken leg..

Tayo Edun impressed on his league debut in their absences, and is pushing to retain his place.

The Whites haven't won at Bramall Lane since April 1985 - Leroy Rosenior scored the only goal in a 1-0 win in a second-tier match.

Fulham won all three of their league matches in south Yorkshire last season, beating Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield Wednesday.

Fulham keeper David Button has the highest passing accuracy of all goalkeepers in the Championship to have played a minimum of 10 matches this season (69.25%).

Sheffield United will be without Paul Coutts for the visit of Fulham and for the rest of the season due to a broken leg.

Blades boss Chris Wilder has confirmed Coutts does not require surgery after fracturing his tibia in Saturday's win at Burton, but the midfielder will play no further part in the Blades' promotion challenge.

Striker Leon Clarke is expected to shake off a knock sustained at the weekend, while defender George Baldock (hamstring) will be assessed after missing the last two matches.

Leon Clarke has been directly involved in 11 of Sheffield United's 27 league goals this season (9 goals, 2 assists) - only Wolves forward Leo Bonatini has registered more goal involvements (14- 10 goals, 4 assists).
