After Fulham produced a clinical display at Forest, Silva may opt against making any changes to his starting lineup.

Fabio Carvalho is available for Fulham’s game against West Brom.

Boss Marco Silva confirmed the teenager has recovered from a toe injury and Covid-19 and is likely to take a seat on the bench for the top-of-the-table clash. Joe Bryan is also available again and Harrison Reed is an option in midfield.

However, Ivan Cavaleiro (groin) and Nathaniel Chalobah (calf) will need longer and are unlikely to be seen until after the international break towards the end of November.

“Ivan’s (injury) is the most difficult one,” Silva said.

“We can use the international break to help him, and Chalobah will be ready to work during the break and ready for the game afterwards.

“Carvalho is back and ready to help us if called on.”

Silva’s side are on a roll, with three straight wins, 10 goals scored and just one conceded, but he admits the Baggies are as difficult as it gets.

“Are they promotion contenders?” he said. “For sure they are, and not just because of the way they started.

“They have quality from the first game. They attack with three, they press at everything; throw-ins, corners – and we have to put our quality on the pitch to match them.”

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Rodak; Odoi, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson; Seri, Cairney; Wilson, Decordova-Reid, Kebano; Mitrovic

West Brom will be able to call upon Jake Livermore after the midfielder served a one-match ban for five yellow cards last time out.

He is expected to replace either Robert Snodgrass or Jayson Molumby in central midfield, while Alex Mowatt will be an option if he has recovered from injury.

Hugill should get the nod over Callum Robinson after getting on the scoresheet last week.

West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Ajayi, Bartley, Clarke; Furlong, Livermore, Molumby, Townsend; Phillips, Hugill, Grant
