Fulham’s injury list has a new name ahead of our visit to Tottenham Hotspur.

In addition to the three players who were missing prior to the international break, Issa Diop is also now sidelined with the problem he picked up in the move that led to Sheffield United’s consolation goal a fortnight ago.

“Adama, Kenny Tete and Tosin are still out, plus Issa Diop,” Marco Silva revealed. “As you know, last game he got an injury.

“We are assessing him, let's see how things go in the next few days, but he's going to be out of the game.”

In more positive news, the Whites’ international contingent came through their games unscathed, though some racked up the air miles.

“No injuries for the players that went away with their national teams,” confirmed Silva. “we will keep assessing them to see how they are, but they look in a good shape.

“Some had some long journeys. It's not easy with some players in America, not just Tim Ream and Raúl in that area, even Bernd Leno was with his national team in America, but we are assessing them.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Bassey, Ream, Robinson; Pereira, Palhinha, Iwobi; Decordova-Reid, Vinicius, Willian

As Bissouma takes his place on the sidelines for a one-game suspension, the out-of-favour Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg should be drafted in to an otherwise untouched Tottenham lineup, where both Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero will feature following scares on international duty.

Brennan Johnson (hamstring) is also in with a chance of being involved, while Rodrigo Bentancur is now working with the group again but still needs time to build up his match fitness after eight months in the medical bay, where Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring), Manor Solomon (knee), Ivan Perisic (knee) and Alfie Whiteman (ankle) remain.

Despite already boasting two goals and five assists from his opening eight Premier League games in a Spurs shirt, Maddison is out to break a personal duck this weekend, as all seven of those contributions have come away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Sarr, Hojbjerg; Kulusevski, Maddison, Son; Richarlison
