Fulham welcomed defender Fode Ballo-Toure back to the matchday squad at Turf Moor, but Alex Iwobi and Ola Aina remain on Africa Cup of Nations duty as Nigeria square off with Ivory Coast in this weekend's tantalising final.

Kenny Tete, will miss the game due to a calf injury with striker Raul Jimenez due to be sidelined for at least a month due to a hamstring issue. Saturday's game is also expected to come too soon for Issa Diop (hamstring), but Adama Traore may finally make his long-awaited comeback from a similar issue. Harry Wilson is also available for selection as is Armando Broja.

With Fulham producing the goods for 70 minutes of their clash with Burnley, Silva may see no reason to tinker with his starting XI too much, and Muniz's first-half strike could be enough to keep Chelsea-owned Armando Broja waiting for his full debut.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Cairney; Decordova-Reid, Pereira, Willian; Muniz

Fulham were not the only side to add to their attacking ranks on deadline day, as Bournemouth poached Enes Unal on loan from Getafe, but the Turkey international's Visa did not arrive in time for him to make his debut against Nottingham Forest.

However, Unal has now touched down in England and is expected to be available this weekend, which is more than can be said for the suspended Billing, but Iraola confirmed that Antoine Semenyo's half-time substitution last weekend was tactical in nature.

Ryan Christie should also be good to go again despite being forced off with a dead leg in that draw, but James Hill (ankle), Tyler Adams (thigh), Ryan Fredericks (calf), Max Aarons (thigh) and Darren Randolph (illness) remain out of contention.

Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Neto; Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kelly; Scott, Cook; Tavernier, Kluivert, Sinisterra; Solanke
