Fulham's Antonee Robinson remains sidelined with an ankle problem, so Tim Ream is set to continue at left-back, while Harry Wilson and Manor Solomon are ruled out with knee injuries.

The Cottagers will also have to cope without the presence of summer signing Joao Palhinha, who is suspended after accumulating five yellow cards.

Either Andreas Pereira of Tom Cairney could be called upon to drop into a deeper midfield role alongside Harrison Reed, while the other occupies the number 10 position behind former Newcastle man Mitrovic, who scored four goals in two games for Serbia during the international break.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Tete, Adarabioyo, Diop, Ream; Reed, Cairney; Decordova-Reid, Pereira, Kebano; Mitrovic

Newcastle United Boss Eddie Howe could be short of options in attack as club-record signing Alexander Isak picked up a muscle injury while on international duty with Sweden, and Chris Wood is also out with a rib issue.

Jonjo Shelvey, Karl Darlow and Emil Krafth are all long-term absentees, while Allan Saint-Maximin, Callum Wilson and Bruno Guimaraes are all doubtful with thigh injuries and will be assessed ahead of kickoff – the latter was forced to withdraw from the Brazil squad last week after sustaining his injury in training.

Centre-back Sven Botman will be hoping to force his way back into the first XI ahead of Fabian Schar – who has scored in his last two visits to Craven Cottage – while Miguel Almiron and Ryan Fraser are set to retain their places in attack.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Pope; Trippier, Botman, Burn, Targett; Willock, S. Longstaff, Joelinton; Almiron, Wilson, Fraser
