A West London Derby of midtable prominence is a most fitting game to be played on a Thursday night, the worst night of the week.

Get hyped.

Graham Potter has opted to give new arrival João Félix the start right away, after just 24 hours with the team. Can’t do much worse than our other options, I suppose. Also, it looks like we’re back to a back-three.

Willian starts for Fulham. (No Mitrović due to suspension.)

Here we go!
