Fulham With Issa Diop suspended due to collecting two yellow cards against Man City, Tim Ream could be restored in central defence.

Adama Traore may finally make his first Premier League start of the season on the right ahead of Bobby Decordova-Reid, while Harrison Reed and Tom Cairney are both in contention to replace Alex Iwobi in the engine room.

When asked for an update on team news, Marco Silva confirmed that Sasa Lukic remains absent with the knock that ruled him out of Manchester City, before discussing the options to replace Issa Diop, who was sent off late in that game.

“It’s still the same with Sasa Lukic, he’s going to be out of the last Premier League game, the same as Issa Diop after his second yellow card and red card, he’s going to be out, too. All the other players are going to be available.

“We have some players who can adapt, if I don't want to start, for example, with Tosin, or if Tosin is not there. It could be two left footed players, or could even be Kenny Tete there.

“I can even drop Joao Palhinha [into defence]. We have many, many solutions for the position and, of course, I'm going to decide between today and tomorrow.”

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Ream, Bassey, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha; Traore, Pereira, Willian; Muniz

Having suffered a calf injury against West Ham, Luton midfielder Ross Barkley is highly unlikely to be risked here, particularly when out of contract in the summer.

Mads Andersen and Dan Potts may be considered for comeback appearances after injury if they are suitably recovered, but the starting lineup should be similar to the one from the Hammers defeat.

Jordan Clark appears likely to take Barkley's place, although Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu is an alternative option, while Chiedozie Ogbene may come in at right wing-back.

Luton Town possible starting lineup:
Kaminski; Burke, Mengi, Osho; Ogbene, Lokonga, Clark, Doughty; Morris, Chong; Adebayo
