Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic will return from suspension here against his former club, and despite Vinicius's winner against Chelsea, the Serbian should come back into the starting XI.

Antonee Robinson picked up his fifth booking of the season on Thursday, so the left-back will be banned.

Paris Saint-Germain-loanee Layvin Kurzawa is the obvious like-for-like replacement for the American international in defence.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Tete, Adarabioyo, Ream, Kurzawa; Palhinha, Reed, Decordova-Reid, Andreas Pereira, Willian; Mitrovic

Newcastle United

Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe went with a full-strength Newcastle side for the EFL Cup quarter-final, so they are expected to remain unchanged here.

Allan Saint-Maximin still cannot get into the side given the recent form of Miguel Almiron and Joelinton, so he is likely to start on the bench again.

They have Callum Wilson, the returning Alexander Isak and Chris Wood to choose from up front, and if Wilson is fully fit he should get the nod.

Jonjo Shelvey, Emil Krafth and Matt Targett are the injury absentees for hosts.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; S Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes, Willock; Almiron, Wilson, Joelinton
