Fulham team news

Thankfully for the home team, they only have one player out injured. Adama Traore will miss this match through hamstring strain, as he's not expected back until the middle of February. Fulham do have three African players competing at the African Cup of Nations though, so Calvin Bassey, Fode Ballo-Toure and Alex Iwobi will not feature in this FA Cup clash.

Newcastle team news

the injury list is much, much longer for Newcastle. Firstly, Nick Pope is ruled out through injury, as he's not expected back between the sticks for another few months. At the back, Matt Targett also misses out and Tino Livramento will be assessed further, as he is currently out through sickness.

In the midfield, Sandro Tonali is suspended which carried over into FA Cup matches so he will miss this one. As will Joelinton, who misses the season through requiring surgery. Joe Willock and Elliot Anderson miss this match too, which is no surprise since they have been out for a while.

In the front line, wingers Jacob Murphy and Harvey Barnes are still injured, but the former shouldn't be much longer. Callum Wilson will also miss this match, as he hopes to return before the end of the month.

Fulham vs Newcastle prediction

Form doesn't favour Newcastle, but I think Eddie Howe will go all-out in the FA Cup as we are under pressure to make something of our season. I will go for Fulham 0-1 Newcastle. Optimistic, I know.
