Fulham could be out of the bottom three by Sunday afternoon if all goes to plan, but in order to move up in the table they need to beat Crystal Palace.

The Whites probably couldn’t have caught Palace at a better time, Wilfried Zaha is out and the Eagles may take their foot off the gas as they seem to be all but safe in the Premier League after beating Brighton last week.

Fulham have a great chance to get their first back-to-back wins of the season here, but in order to do so, Scott Parker has to get his team selection spot on.

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

We think Scott Parker will opt to make just one change for this game.

The back five remains the same as we saw against Sheffield United, meaning Kenny Tete remains on the bench for this clash.

Tete vs Aina is a tough decision at right-back, but with Zaha out of contention, we think that Parker will go for the more attacking option.

The rest of the defence lines up about how you’d expect it to, while Harrison Reed and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa retain their spots in the midfield.

The only change in the side is on the right wing as Bobby Decordova-Reid comes in for Ivan Cavaleiro.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek continues in the number 10 spot, while Ademola Lookman starts on the left.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is back in contention for this one after recovering from covid, but we don’t expect him to come straight back into the XI.
