At Craven Cottage
Alan Pardew has made two changes to his starting line-up as Newcastle United travel to Fulham in the Barclays Premier League (3pm kick-off).
The Magpies will start in a 4-4-1-1 formation at Craven Cottage, as they go in search of an eighth top flight away win of the campaign.
Just as he did so successfully at Hull last time out, Dutch forward Luuk de Jong will operate in the number ten role, linking up with Cisse, who is up front on his own.
On the substitutes' bench there are attacking options in the shape of Shola Ameobi, Adam Armstrong and Sylvain Marveaux, and the trio are joined by Dan Gosling, Massadio Haidara, Steven Taylor and Jak Alnwick.
Fulham (4-4-1-1): David Stockdale; John Heitinga, Fernando Amorebieta, Brede Hangeland (c), Kieran Richardson; Pajtim Kasami, Steve Sidwell, William Kvist, Alex Kacaniklic; Lewis Holtby; Cauley Woodrow
Substitutes: Maarten Stekelenburg, Sascha Riether, John Arne Riise, Dan Burn, Patrick Roberts, Ashkan Dejagah, Hugo Rodallega
Referee: Howard Webb (Yorkshire)
