Fulham will again be missing Adama Traore due to a hamstring strain, while a calf problem is likely to mean that Tim Ream misses out.

The home side will also be without the services of Raul Jimenez, who received a straight red card in the 22nd minute of the three-goal loss to Newcastle last time out.

Rodrigo Muniz is likely to be given the nod in the final third of the field, while Willian, who was on the bench against Newcastle, faces a late fitness test on the problem that forced him off against Everton.

Kenny Tete's performance in the EFL Cup last time out could also mean that he features at right-back, while Alex Iwobi could drop into a deeper position for this match.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Tete, Adarabioyo, Diop, Robinson; Palhinha, Iwobi; Willian, Pereira, Wilson; Muniz

Head coach Kompany is expected to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack following the defeat to Everton, but there could be a change in the final third, with Lyle Foster potentially coming in for Jay Rodriguez.

Cork, Ramsey and Gudmundsson will all be in contention to start if they are able to prove their fitness, but their availability at this stage of the team's preparations remains unclear.

Burnley possible starting lineup:
rafford; Vitinho, O'Shea, Beyer, Delcroix; Larsen, Berge, Brownhill, Odobert; Foster, Amdouni
