The Fulham team v Newcastle has just been confirmed.

Marco Silva and his players still reeling from that aggregate Liverpool defeat in the semis of the League Cup on Wednesday.

Fulham facing Newcastle United only three days later.

Whilst Eddie Howe has had the benefit of two weeks to prepare.

The confirmed Fulham team v Newcastle United :

Rodak, Tete, Ream, Diop, Robinson, Reed, Lukic, De Cordova-Reid, Andreas Pereira, Wilson, Muniz

Marco Silva stated how his players had so much taken out of them, mentally and physically, by Wednesday’s semi-final loss to Liverpool and his team selection massively reflects that.

Silva making SEVEN changes to his Fulham team v Newcastle.

The only four who remain from the first choice eleven who faced Liverpool, are Diop, Robinson, Pereira and De Cordova-Reid.

Subs:

Adarabioyo, Jimenez, Cairney, Willian, Castagne, Benda, Joao Palhinha, Vinicius,

The confirmed Newcastle United team v Fulham and subs are below :

Newcastle team v Fulham:

OUT:

Miguel Almiron

SUBS:

Karius, Dummett, Ritchie, Krafth, Hall, Livramento, A Murphy, Parkinson, Hernes

The club have stated on Twitter that Miguel Almiron misses out through illness and Jamaal Lascelles due to injury.

As to whether many Newcastle United fans will believe this is another matter, as these are two of the NUFC squad who have been the subject of claimed interest from other clubs in this transfer window.

Amongst the young players on the bench is Travis Hernes, an 18 year old Norwegian midfielder bought from Shrewsbury in the summer (2023).

Newcastle United looking to break out of a dismal FA Cup run these past 17 years, vast majority under Mike Ashley, where we have seen ten exits at the immediate third round stage, six at fourth round stage after winning one match.

Just the one campaign in 17 years where NUFC have won more than one FA Cup match in a season, in 2019/20 the incredible feat of winning against Rochdale (after a replay), Oxford (after a replay) and West Brom, before losing at home to Man City.
