Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is the only absentee for Fulham as he recovers from an ankle injury but he could return in time to face Arsenal on New Year's Day.

In an otherwise fully-fit squad, manager Claudio Ranieri is expected to pick only one of Ryan Sessegnon or Andre Schurrle in attack for the relegation showdown at Craven Cottage.

Fulham Coach Claudio Ranieri will persist with the five-man defence that has solidified his team.

“I didn’t have a friendly match to get to know all my players. I started with four at the back, but we conceded too many chances,” he said.

“I tried with the five at Newcastle and thought maybe this is good for us. But of course this shape is not dogmatic.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner will check on midfielder Jonathan Hogg before Saturday’s game.

Hogg was an unused substitute in the Boxing Day defeat at Manchester United having nursed a knee problem, but is hoping to return to action.

Wagner has no new injury or suspension worries, but midfielders Aaron Mooy, Danny Williams (both knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone), plus defender Tommy Smith (hamstring) are still out.

Huddersfield head coach David Wagner: "Having the games come so quickly gives us more chances to turn this run around.

"We're in a very busy period and we're the only ones who can improve our situation. Nobody gives you a present in the Premier League.

"I don't have to tell any lies. Anybody who has seen our games praises our performances but we don't put pressure on opponents by scoring goals."
