After falling awkwardly on his shoulder in the first half of Saturday's defeat to Newcastle, Harry Wilson tried to soldier on but was forced to call it a night just before half time; Willian should therefore be reinstated to the first XI right away as the Welshman begins a two to three week absence.

None of Calvin Bassey, Alex Iwobi or Fode Ballo-Toure have completed their Africa Cup of Nations commitments just yet, and Tuesday's game will come too soon for Adama Traore, whose thigh problem is yet to fully heal.

As was the case on Saturday, Silva will ring the changes amid another unforgiving 72-hour turnaround, and the beneficiaries of such rotation will be Raul Jimenez, Joao Palhinha, Tosin Adarabioyo, Timothy Castagne and Bernd Leno.

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

In contrast, no injuries were added to insult for Everton during their FA Cup exit to Luton, where Ashley Young was back on the bench, and fellow full-back Seamus Coleman (thigh) has an outside chance of coming back for the trip south too.

Andre Gomes is out owing to his latest calf setback, though, while Dele Alli (groin) and Abdoulaye Doucoure (hamstring) are still in the care of the physios, and Idrissa Gueye remains on AFCON duty for the time being.

Wholesale changes will not be on the cards for the Toffees, whose only alteration may very well be Jordan Pickford for Joao Virginia in goal if Dyche is loath to throw Young - an unused substitute on Saturday - straight back into the starting lineup.

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko; Harrison, Onana, Garner, McNeil; Calvert-Lewin, Beto
