Fulham must cope without Palhinha for Monday's game and the visit of league leaders Arsenal next weekend due to an accumulation of bookings.

With Tom Cairney still down with an ankle injury, January arrival Sasa Lukic should make his first Premier League start alongside Harrison Reed, while Layvin Kurzawa and Neeskens Kebano remain out of contention with knee and Achilles injuries respectively.

Despite his everlasting prowess off the bench, Solomon's start in the FA Cup might mean that Silva is planning to keep faith with Willian and Bobby Decordova-Reid from the off, while Mitrovic should be fit to lead the line after lasting 69 minutes against Leeds.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Reed, Lukic; Decordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; Mitrovic

Only one bed in the Brentford treatment room is currently in use, as second-choice goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha is still out with an ankle problem, but Frank Onyeka and Pontus Jansson should be available for selection.

As things stand, Toney will be free to spearhead the Bees' attack on Monday night as he goes in search of a 15th Premier League goal of the season - Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa will aid him in his quest as ever.

Janelt's last-gasp heroics against Palace could see the German force his way into the midfield triumvirate over Josh Dasilva, but Frank should otherwise see no need to disrupt the harmony here.

Brentford possible starting lineup:
Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Janelt, Norgaard, Jensen; Mbeumo, Toney, Wissa
