Fulham starting XI

         David  Moyes makes two changes

Łukasz Fabiański remains between the sticks as Alphonse Areola still hasn’t recovered from his wrist problem with Vladimír Coufal , Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd make up the rest of the back line.

This will be Cresswell’s second Premier League start of the season – and 286th appearance in the competition overall – at left-back.

Tomáš Souček and the scorer of Thursday night’s winning goal, James Ward-Prowse, look likely to be the anchor men for the game and  Mohammed Kudus, Lucas Paquetá and Fornals will provide the support for Jarrod Bowen up front.

Bowen scored his  50th Hammers goal in midweek wjile on bench Moyes’ attacking options include Saïd Benrahma, Maxwel Cornet, Danny Ings and Divin Mubama, with Joseph Anang, Emerson, Angelo Ogbonna, Dinos Mavropanos and Thilo Kehrer completing the squad.
