Fulham will still be without Nathanial Chalobah and Ivan Cavaleiro for Saturday’s trip to Luton, but wing-back Antonee Robinson is available after missing last Friday’s draw with Bournemouth due to illness.

The pair haven’t featured since the win over QPR in October with Chalobah sidelined with a calf problem and Cavaleiro struggling with a groin injury but coach Marco Silva confirmed the duo will return to full training next week in time for the busy Christmas period.

Robinson felt unwell after the 1-1 draw with Preston due to a heavy cold that was not Covid-related but will take his place in the squad for the clash at Kenilworth Road.

“Ivan has started to be integrated in the squad and Chalobah worked all last week but this week was a little bit sick.

“It was nothing serious. We expect next week both will be in full training.

“Robinson felt unwell earlier in the season after the international break and felt the same the week after Preston, but he is fine to go now.”

Bobby Decordova-Reid will be hoping to return to the first XI at the expense of teenager Fabio Carvalho.

Captain Tom Cairney could be handed just his third start of the campaign in centre-midfield ahead of Harrison Reed, while goalkeeper Marek Rodak is set to start between the sticks once again ahead of Paulo Gazzaniga, who has seemingly lost his place in the starting lineup.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Rodak; Odoi, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson; Seri, Cairney; Wilson, Carvalho, Kebano; Mitrovic

Luton midfielder Luke Berry is closing in on a full recovery from a knee injury, but is set to remain sidelined this weekend.

Jones is unlikely to make too many changes, if any, to his starting lineup, though Pelly Ruddock-Mpanzu and Fred Onyedinma will be hoping to force their way into the first XI after starting on the bench against Blackpool.

Luton Town possible starting lineup:
Sluga; Burke, Naismith, Bradley; Bree, Lansbury, Mpanzu, Bell; Clark, Adebayo, Gomes
