Fulham vs Burnley: Team news, predicted line-ups and how to watch

Fulham welcome Burnley in a game that both clubs might see as an unnecessary fixture. Scott Parker and Sean Dyche will have more than one eye on the Premier League but, at the same time, they will not want to roll over in this FA Cup clash.


Fulham were unbeaten in six matches before losing two consecutive matches against Chelsea and Manchester United. However, of those six games, five were draws and the one victory was against Queens Park Rangers in the cup. 

Parker has done remarkably well to make his team competitive but he needs to take that forward again. 

Burnley will be full of confidence after their incredible 1-0 victory against Liverpool. In the latter stages of the game, Alisson Becker clattered into Ashley Barnes and the striker picked himself up before dispatching the penalty. They were the first team to win at Anfield in the league since April 2017. 

It was a huge result for the Clarets, on the back of two 1-0 defeats. The challenge will now be to build on that performance.

Team News

Antonee Robinson is in the middle of his suspension so it will probably be Joe Bryan who slots in at left-wing-back. 

Burnley will be without Charlie Taylor, who hobbled off the pitch at Anfield. Otherwise, Dyche has a full roster of players to choose from.  

Ones to watch

Aleksandr Mitrovic (Fulham) - From one struggling striker to another! Mitrovic will score more goals than anybody else at Fulham if he plays every week. He is a goal-getter. Unfortunately, his all-round game isn't in-synch with the progressive nature of Fulham's football. Mitrovic can't change his style but he can remind Parker of his goal-scoring potential.

Jay Rodriguez (Burnley) - It has been a tough season for Rodriguez and he will be hoping to make his mark in this competition. He broke into the team towards the end of November but his level of performance wasn't very remarkable. 

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Fulham) - Loftus-Cheek is a bit of an enigma. A colossus of a man with great technical ability but he just can't seem to string together a consistent run of performances. Parker has deployed him as a false-nine in some matches, however, he will probably be playing deeper with Mitrovic set to start. 

Jack Cork (Burnley) - He had been a regular starter for Burnley until his lengthy spell on the sidelines. Cork did start in the third-round against MK Dons and he will be hoping to build his fitness with another start at Craven Cottage. 

Predicted Line-Ups

Burnley: Peacock-Farrell; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson, Stephens, Cork, Brady; Wood, Rodriguez. 

Fulham: Rodak; Odoi, Ream, Hector; Decordova-Reid, Lemina, Reed, Bryan; Onomah, Loftus-Cheek; Mitrovic.
