Fulham's treatment room is empty barring midfield fulcrum Harrison Reed, who completed 85 minutes of the contest with Palace but had to be taken off towards the end.

Reed is not believed to be nursing anything too severe, though, so there is every chance that Silva will be working with a fully-fit squad for Saturday's derby, but either Sasa Lukic or Tom Cairney could step into the engine room if needs be.

Since the start of February, only Cole Palmer and Phil Foden (11 each) have scored more Premier League goals than Muniz's nine, and the South American continues up front as the Cottagers' focal point.

However, Tosin Adarabioyo was not involved against Oliver Glasner's side after informing Fulham that he will be leaving the club when his contract expires this summer, so Tim Ream will presumably reprise his role with Issa Diop here.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Lukic; Iwobi, Pereira, Willian; Muniz

The headline team news from Brentford's loss to Everton was the inclusion of Ivan Toney from the first whistle, a decision made easier by the absence of Neal Maupay, who was unable to face his parent club at Goodison Park.

The Frenchman now returns to bolster Frank's attacking ranks, but defensive trio Ben Mee (ankle), Rico Henry (knee) and Aaron Hickey (thigh) are all out for the rest of the season, as is long-term knee victim Josh Dasilva.

As a result, Frank will be working with a near-identical squad for the visit of Fulham, where Kevin Schade may throw his hat into the ring for a starting role, having come off the bench in three straight games since recovering from an adductor problem.

Brentford possible starting lineup:
Flekken; Ajer, Collins, Pinnock, Reguilon; Janelt, Norgaard, Jensen; Mbeumo, Toney, Schade
