Fulham are able to welcome back Mitrovic from an eight-game suspension, and the Serbian – who missed a late penalty in the win over Southampton earlier this season – is expected to be recalled to the first XI, with Vinicius the unfortunate one who will likely make way.

However, the Cottagers will be without injured duo Pereira (ankle) and Tim Ream (broken arm) for the rest of the season, while Daniel James (thigh) and Layvin Kurzawa (knee) are also recovering in the treatment room.

Neeskens Kebano has made four fleeting substitute appearances since recovering from a long-term Achilles injury, and the winger will be pushing to start ahead of Harry Wilson on Saturday.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Tete, Adarabioyo, Diop, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha; Wilson, Cairney, Willian; Mitrovic

Southampton centre-back Armel Bella-Kotchap was forced off with a hamstring injury in the first half of Monday's defeat at Forest and is unlikely to recover in time to face Fulham, while Romain Perraud (ankle), Mohammed Salisu (groin), Juan Larios (thigh) and Valentino Livramento (fitness) all remain sidelined.

In the expected absence of Bella-Kotchap, either Lyanco or Duje Caleta-Car are set to start in central defence alongside Jan Bednarek, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Kyle Walker-Peters will continue as full-backs.

Selles may be tempted to stick with the same frontline, although January signings Kamaldeen Sulemana and Paul Onuachu as well as Adam Armstrong will all be hoping to force their way back into the first XI.

Southampton possible starting lineup:
McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Lyanco, Bednarek, Maitland-Niles; Lavia, Ward-Prowse; Walcott, Alcaraz, S. Armstrong; Adams
