Fulham have no new injury concerns, with Manor Solomon (knee), Layvin Kurzawa (calf) and Kenny Tete (knock) all set to remain sidelined, while Nathaniel Chalobah will serve the final game of his three-match ban following his red card against Newcastle earlier this month.

Silva may be tempted to name an unchanged first XI with Bobby Decordova-Reid continuing at right-back, joining Diop, Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson in the back four.

Mitrovic, who has scored nine goals in his last eight games at Craven Cottage, is expected to lead the line, with support provided on the flanks by Daniel James and Neeskens Kebano.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Decordova-Reid, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Reed; James, Pereira, Kebano; Mitrovic

As for Aston Villa, summer signings Diego Carlos (Achilles) and Boubacar Kamara (knee) are ruled out with long-term injuries, while left-backs Lucas Digne and Ludwig Augustinsson could return from respective calf and thigh problems by the end of the month.

Tyrone Mings sustained a minor ankle injury in the closing stages of the defeat to Chelsea, but the centre-back should be available for selection on Thursday.

Phillipe Coutinho and Emi Buendia were both dropped to the bench last weekend and they will be pushing to start ahead of Danny Ings and Leon Bailey, with Ollie Watkins the most likely attacker to keep his place in the first XI.

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:
Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Young; McGinn, Luiz, Ramsey; Buendia, Watkins, Coutinho
