Fulham welcome back Harry Wilson to face Stoke following suspension – and there is good news for Harrison Reed, Tim Ream and Fabio Carvalho.

The latter two have recovered quickly from knocks sustained in the 2-0 win over Hull last Saturday, and Reed returns from injury. But it appears right-back Kenny Tete will be out for some time.

Tete damaged a hamstring that doesn’t require surgery, but does mean Whites are unexpectedly in the market for a new right-back before the window closes on Tuesday.

Long-term absentees Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo remain sidelined as Fulham go in search of a fifth straight win that will keep at the top of the Championship going into the international break.

Fulham boss Marco Silva said of Cairney: “He’s making good progress, but he’s not ready for the team yet.”

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Gazzaniga; Reid, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson; Onomah, Seri; Kebano, Carvalho, Cavaleiro; Mitrovic

Stoke boss O'Neill will almost certainly name the 11 players which started against Forest last weekend.

However, Sam Surridge put himself in contention for a recall with a goal against Doncaster in midweek.

O'Neill has revealed that Powell will remain on the sidelines until after the international break.

Stoke City possible starting lineup:
Bursik; Ostigard, Souttar, Wilmot; Smith, Clucas, Allen, Vrancic, Tymon; Fletcher, Brown
