ℹ️ Team News: Fulham
Layvin Kurzawa (Sideband tear), Tim Ream (Fractured Arm) and Andreas Pereira (Ankle Injury) aren’t available for Fulham gaffer Marco Silva.
We are thinking that The Cottagers should opt for a 4-2-3-1 system in the match, utilising Bernd Leno, Kenny Tete, Tosin Adarabioyo, Issa Diop, Antonee Robinson, Harrison Reed, Joao Palhinha, Harry Wilson, Tom Cairney, Willian and Vinicius.
ℹ️ Team News: Crystal Palace
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, the Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash.
From our viewpoint, The Eagles seem likely to begin the game with a 4-3-3 formation, starting the game with Sam Johnstone, Joel Ward, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi, Tyrick Mitchell, Eberechi Eze, C. Oumar Doucoure, Will Hughes, Michael Olise, Odsonne Edouard and Jordan Ayew.
In this game, Crystal Palace are dangerous enough to score a goal against this Fulham team, but it might not be enough to prevent defeat.
