Sessegnon out of Newcastle clash
Fulham will be without Ryan Sessegnon due to a minor groin injury when they travel north to take on Newcastle on Saturday.
The England Under-21 winger could be fit in time for the Boxing Day clash with Wolves at Craven Cottage but the west London outfit's medical team have decided not to take a risk at St James' Park.
Midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa remains sidelined with a knock but otherwise Claudio Ranieri has a fully-fit squad as he looks to get his second win in charge of the Cottagers.
Fulham are the only team in the Football League without a clean sheet to their name and Ranieri says a shut-out would be a positive as he tries to engineer a morale-boosting result at Newcastle.
"I need a clean sheet, I need a clean sheet like I need bread, like I need pasta," said Ranieri.
"We need to make a point in two or three matches in a row. It's important to take confidence because now the players are a little nervous and it's normal."
