    Fulham boss’ job hinges on Newcastle tie?

    Probable Lineups:

    newcastle fulhamFulham (4-2-3-1): Stekelenburg, Riether, Heitinga, Hangeland, Riise, Sidwell, Karagounis, Dejagah Richardson, Holtby, Mitroglou

    The rock bottom Premier League side will need nothing short of a miracle to survive the drop.  Form is also not on their side, having collected only two points from a possible 27 in their last nine games. Head coach Felix Magath is however still optimistic of avoiding relegation, hammering his team with defensive drills during the week.  Hangeland will continue to partner Heitinga in center back while Kostas Mitroglou should get the nod over Darren Bent to lead the Cottagers’ attack.

    Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Krul, Debuchy, Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Santon, Anita, Tioté, Sissoko, de Jong, Gouffran, Remy

    A inspired Moussa Sissoko performance earned Newcastle an emphatic 4-1 away win over Hull City and Alan Pardew’s men will be hoping for a similar performance.  Pardew himself, however, will serve a seven game ban for his ‘headbutt’ on Hull’s David Meyler. Yanga-Mbiwa deputized for the injured Fabricio Coloccini last time out but Steven Taylor could very well partner Mike Williamson at the heart of defence against the Cottagers. Loic Remy is a doubt but should be fit for the journey to London.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Ben Arfa scores a real beauty at Craven Cottage last season.  Can he conjure something similar and push Fulham closer to the Championship?

    Felix Magath has been putting his side through defensive drills all week and if he wants to start his climb out of the bottom it must begin now.  With Loic Remy possibly out injured, we’re backing John Heitinga – who also has a goal and an assist in his last two games – to lead his back-line to a Craven Cottage shutout.

    Stats to get your head around…
