Fulham will be pleased with the way they played in the first game against Sunderland and will be hoping for a repeat.
They need to show the same defensive qualities which were on display at the Stadium of Light but also the urgency to get forward and present more chances for their strikers to take advantage of.
Fulham head into the match off the back of a 2-1 defeat against Blackburn Rovers in the Championship, which should give them a determination to react in the right manner with a positive result in front of their own fans.
Sunderland head into this game after a solid win in the Premier League against Burnley. Gus Poyet will stress the need for his side to hit the ground running and create some momentum for themselves ahead of more difficult games to come.
The Sunderland Echo reported earlier today that Adam Johnson won’t take any part in the game this evening after the threat of infection following surgery on a thumb. However, Poyet’s side will still fancy their chances of getting a positive result in normal time.
