Fulham will be hoping to create some distance from West Brom in third place with a victory over The Baggies this afternoon.
The Cottagers are currently a mere point ahead of West Brom in the Championship table and are five points shy of Bournemouth who occupy top spot in the division.
Marco Silva’s side lead the goalscoring charts, and by quite some distance, so far this season, scoring 33 times in 14 league games, whilst they also possess the best goal difference.
Quiz: Have each of these 24 ex-Fulham academy players ever played in the Premier League?
Only Bournemouth have conceded fewer goals than West Brom’s 11 this season, with this clash set to test Fulham’s attacking capabilities to the max.
Naming his starting XI to face The Baggies, Silva has made one change, with Harrison Reed coming in for Tom Cairney who drops down to the bench.
There is also a place on the bench for Fabio Carvalho. The highly-sought after midfielder has not featured in the Championship since August.
Fulham: Rodak, Odoi, Tosin, Ream, Robinson, Seri, Reed, De Cordova-Reid, Wilson, Kebano, Mitrovic
West Brom: Johnstone, Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Clarke, Townsend, Livermore, Snodgrass, Phillips, Robinson, Grant

Great to see Carvalho healthy again and on the bench. Could come on and make a real impact today👍

A game of long throws, physicality and crosses. The lads have a lot to deal with aerial balls.
But ain't CAIRNEY fit enough to start?

Strong team but no Tete? Thought he’d be back by now

Would have liked to have seen Tete over odoi but maybe not fit enough just yet. Good options on the bench in Carvalho and Cairney if we need someone to break them apart with a touch of magic

Good team, as much as I love Tc we need legs in that midfield today and Reed will provide us that. Tete is obvs not fully fit.
