Team news, stats and prediction ahead of Fulham vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Mix (kick-off 4pm).

Team news

Fulham could be without four players for their final match of the season against Newcastle.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has been ruled out of the match with his former club with the injury which saw him sidelined against Manchester United in midweek.

Antonee Robinson will also be absent, alongside captain Tom Cairney, while a late call will be made over the availability of Harrison Reed, who has an ankle problem.

Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce will make a series of late decisions before naming his team.

Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka (hamstring) and striker Allan Saint-Maximin, who has been nursing an ankle injury, are both doubts after Wednesday night's 1-0 win over Sheffield United, but could yet make it.

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce says he is prepared to test Arsenal's resolve in the summer transfer window to try and keep loan signing Joe Willock

Striker Joelinton, who hobbled off with a knock in midweek, and match-winner Joe Willock, withdrawn because of fatigue, should be available and defender Fabian Schar has completed his three-match ban, but keeper Karl Darlow and midfielder Isaac Hayden (both knee), skipper Jamaal Lascelles (foot), winger Ryan Fraser (groin) and striker Callum Wilson (hamstring) are out.

We take a look at some of the stats surrounding matchweek 38 in the Premier League

Jones Knows' prediction

How different this occasion could have been. Instead of a tension-fuelled, winner-takes-all relegation scrap, we now have a proper end-of-season encounter that just might produce plenty of action in both boxes. How annoying.

Scott Parker will be keen on giving the home fans something to shout about after what must have been a miserable experience watching their side from home. Only Sheffield United have scored fewer goals in the Premier League and Fulham have not scored more than one goal in any of the last 13 league games. I am not exactly selling this for a goal-fest, am I? But goals always are seen in unlikely places on the final day. With Newcastle expected to continue playing in their front-foot style, this game could explode.


BETTING ANGLE: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals (7/4 with Sky Bet)
