Fulham will be without Brede Hangeland after the defender chose to have surgery in an attempt to clear sciatic nerve trouble. Rene Meulensteen may continue with Aaron Hughes and Philippe Senderos in central defence again in the absence of Hangeland, with Fernando Amorebieta offering an alternative option after missing out in midweek through injury.
On-loan forward Darren Bent is ineligible to face his parent club.
Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar is a fitness doubt after being substituted at half-time of the midweek win at Southampton with a calf injury. Fellow defender Antonio Luna is nursing a groin problem and could also miss out on Sunday.
Further up the field, Libor Kozak could be rewarded for his goal with another start, which may see Christian Benteke benched again.
