Brede Hangeland is ruled out for the Cottagers, with Fernando Amorebieta poised to deputise in the heart of defence once again. Martin Jol made nine changes for the League Cup in midweek and the likes of Sascha Riether, Scott Parker, Pajtim Kasami and Dimitar Berbatov will all be pushing for recalls.
Michael Carrick is expected to miss Manchester United's trip to Fulham due to an achilles injury that makes him a doubt for Tuesday's game against Real Sociedad. David Moyes has a selection headache at the back after Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand both returned from injury in the midweek cup win over Norwich. With a Champions League game next week, though, Moyes may continue his defensive rotation policy, with Jonny Evans likely set for a recall, whilst Rafael or Phil Jones could get the nod at right-back, if the latter is shifted from the centre. Danny Welbeck again misses out with a knee problem.
