If ever there was a must-win game in the Premier League this is it, Fulham face Brighton on Wednesday evening in a game that could define their season.

A win here would see the Whites go within touching distance of safety, and with a game against West Brom on the horizon on Saturday, this could be a chance for Fulham to put together something of a run of form.

However, as we know, Brighton aren’t an easy team to beat.

The Seagulls and Fulham played out the first 0-0 draw at Craven Cottage for almost 10 years earlier this season, and if the Whites are going to get anything here, they need to play better than they did on that day.

With that in mind we’ve had a go at predicting Scott Parker’s starting XI for this one.

Fulham’s predicted XI vs Brighton

We think that Scott Parker will make six changes from the team that lost 3-0 to Burnley in the FA Cup.

This side is very similar to the one that lined up against Manchester United last week, but the big headline is that Aleksandar Mitrovic is back in the XI.

Yes, we think that Parker may think it’s time for the Serbian to return, he’s been seeing more action off the bench lately, and with Fulham desperately struggling for goals, he may be the man to turn to.

Aside from that, this is about what you’d expect Fulham to look like. Bobby Decordova-Reid is back in the team after serving a one game suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ivan Cavaleiro are the two that miss out upon Reid and Mitrovic’s returns.
