Four changes to the team that started against Manchester United last time out. Davinson Sanchez, Danny Rose, Erik Lamela and Fernando Llorente come in for Ben Davies, Moussa Sissoko, Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane. It's Fernando's first start in the Premier League since our 2-0 win at Swansea on 2 January, 2018 - he scored that day. Eric Dier returns to the bench after after missing our last nine matches with appendicitis while Kazaiah Sterling, 20, comes into the 18 on the bench. He made his competitive debut in the Champions League against APOEL last December before coming off the bench against City in the Premier League in April.

After an unbeaten run of 8 games against us, Fulham have lost each of their last 4 EPL games against us on home soil. We have won 9 of our last 10 EPL meetings with Fulham, losing only in March 2013 at WHL (0-1). Fulham have lost their last 6 EPL London derbies - only QPR have lost more consecutively in the top flight (7 between August 1995 and January 1996). Fulham are looking to win consecutive home games in the EPL for the first time since April 2013
We lost our last EPL derby (2-4 vs Arsenal in December) having won our last 7 in a row before that. We have won more EPL away games than any other side this season (10). We are unbeaten in our last 20 EPL away games against promoted sides (W17 D3), since a 0-1 loss ta QPR in April 2012. We have lost 3 of our 4 EPL games played on a Sunday this season (W1) - more than we had in our previous 2 seasons combined in Sunday games (P23 W17 D4 L2).
Fulham's Aleksandar Mitovic has scored in all 3 of his EPL games us, and could become the 4th player to score in his first 4 against us in the competition after Mark Bright, Ruud van Nistelroy and Obafemi Martins.
Since Poch became our Manager, Kane has scored a league high 119 EPL goals for 36% of our total of 333 in that time. Unfortunately we wont be available to add to this tally.
