Fulham will again be without the services of Tom Cairney and Neeskens Kebano through injury, while leading goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic remains a doubt due to a thigh problem.

Silva will not want to take any risks with Mitrovic, so it would not be a surprise to see him sit this one out also with a view to returning against Brentford in the league on March 6.

There will be changes from the side that started against Wolves in the Premier League, with Shane Duffy, Tosin Adarabioyo, Harry Wilson and Layvin Kurzawa all expected to feature in the XI, while there should be a spot between the sticks for Marek Rodak.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Rodak; Cedric, Duffy, Adarabioyo, Kurzawa; Lukic, Reed; Wilson, Solomon, James; Vinicius

Leeds's Rodrigo, Archie Gray, Adam Forshaw and Stuart Dallas are definitely out, while Luis Sinisterra and Pascal Struijk remain injury doubts.

There will also be plenty of changes from the team's Premier League match on Saturday, with Marc Roca, Sam Greenwood, Joel Robles and Rasmus Kristensen all pushing to come into the XI.

Georginio Rutter could also come in alongside Patrick Bamford in the final third of the field, while there might be a position in central midfield for teenager Darko Gyabi.

Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Robles; Kristensen, Koch, Wober, Firpo; Greenwood, Gyabi, Roca, Summerville; Bamford, Rutter
