Fulham are hoping to avoid exiting the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup in the same week. The Cottagers battled hard but couldn’t overcome the superior quality of Liverpool in the League Cup semi-final. Now attention must quickly turn to the more prestigious FA Cup, as Fulham look to better their slender 1-0 victory over League One Rotherham with a win against Premier League opposition. 

Newcastle’s sole positives over the last two months have been an FA Cup victory over bitter rivals Sunderland, and a convincing 3-0 win at St James’ Park against a Fulham side reduced to 10 men within the opening 30 minutes. Put simply, the Mapgies are in atrocious form, having lost eight of their last 10 matches in all competitions. With much-needed reinforcements in the January window looking unlikely at this stage, Eddie Howe is going to need to mastermind an uptick in form soon to avoid this season spiraling even further.  

Here's how they line up: 

Fulham: Rodak, Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson, Reed, Lukic, Andreas, Wilson, De Cordova-Reid, Muniz. 

Newcastle: Dubravka, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Miley,  Murphy, Isak, Gordon

Both these top-flight sides are struggling — Fulham have lost four of the last five EPL matches — and need a jolt to revive underwhelming league campaigns. The Fulham vs Newcastle live stream is a must-win game for both teams and an unmissable matchup that you can watch from anywhere without our guide down below.
