Fulham will again be without the services of Tom Cairney this weekend through injury, while Aleksandar Mitrovic is unavailable for selection, having recently tested positive for coronavirus.

Terence Kongolo, who has been stepping up his recovery from injury, will not feature in Fulham's upcoming match against Sheffield United, but will play for the U23s this weekend.

Parker is expected to stick with the same side that started against Burnley on Wednesday evening, meaning that Maja should again lead the line with support from Ademola Lookman and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the wide areas.

Ivan Cavaleiro and Andre-Frank Anguissa are options for change in a midfield position, but Parker is likely to resist the temptation to shuffle his pack for what is another key clash for the Cottagers.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Lemina, Reed; Loftus-Cheek, Reid, Lookman; Maja

For Sheffield United, Sander Berge, Jack Robinson, John Egan and Jack O'Connell are all out, while John Fleck is expected to miss out once again through illness.

Egan's absence could see Phil Jagielka earn a spot in the XI, while George Baldock is likely to be handed a starting role, having been on the bench against West Ham last time out.

Rhian Brewster and Oli McBurnie are both options for change in the final third of the field, but Wilder could ultimately decide to stick with Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick as a front two.

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Basham, Jagielka, Ampadu; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Osborn, Stevens; Sharp, McGoldrick
