Team News: Fulham

Fulham have climbed up to 10th in the standings following the victory over Luton Town. Coach Marco Silva has witnessed his team build up a strong base at the Craven Cottage and it is in the away matches where the team has struggled a lot with only one away success in the last five.

Fulham are likely to go with the same starting line-up that was able to get a close victory over Luton Town in the last match. The Cottagers have no new additions to the treatment table, which sees the presence of Steven Benda because of the cruciate ligament injury. Sasa Lukic is doubtful with a knee injury alongside Antonee Robinson.
