Fulham welcome league leaders Cardiff City to Craven Cottage as the Cottagers look to build on their victory over Ipswich prior to the international break.

Neil Warnock's men come to west London in fine form, having won all five games so far this season, while Fulham have gotten off to an indifferent start before their performance at Portman Road.

It won't be an easy test for the home side, and it will be made all the more difficult with Tom Cairney, Rui Fonte, Sheyi Ojo and Neeskens Kebano all ruled out through injury after the international break.

However, there could be space in the squad for new signings Yohan Mollo and Jordan Graham who signed on Transfer Deadline Day.

We'll have live updates of the game right here throughout the afternoon, as well as match reaction from Slavisa Jokanovic.

We’re ten minutes away from kick off this afternoon, just as the sun disappears behind some ominous looking clouds

Cisse over Norwood the surprise

I’m surprised to see Cisse start over Norwood given the fact that he’s replacing Cairney in the side, but I would now expect Johansen to play in that ten role with Cisse playing the Johansen role of box to box midfielder. m

Good to see Sessegnon start further forward, while I’m looking forward to seeing what Mollo brings to the starting XI
