Fulham v Aston Villa line-ups: Cairney back in three changes, key Villa duo out

Fulham captain Tom Cairney has been passed fit to start to face Aston Villa.

Cairney featured from the bench against Bolton last weekend but has shaken off a niggling knee injury to replace Oliver Norwood.

Floyd Ayite and Aleksandr Mitrovic come into the starting line-up at the expense of Lucas Piazon and Rui Fonte.

Key Aston Villa pair Albert Adomah (hamstring) and Jack Grealish (calf) miss the match.

Manchester United loanee Axel Tuanzebe and Iceland international Birkir Bjarnason come into the side.

Villa are chasing an eighth successive Championship win against a Fulham side who have won their last six home league matches.

Fulham: Bettinelli; Fredericks, Kalas, Ream, Targett; McDonald, Johansen, Cairney; Ayite, Mitrovic, Sessegnon.
Subs: Button, Christie, Odoi, Norwood, Piazon, Kebano, Kamara.

Aston Villa: Johnstone; Elmohamady, Chester, Terry, Hutton; Jedinak, Tuanzebe; Snodgrass, Hourihane, Bjarnason; Hogan.
Subs: Bunn, Taylor, Whelan, Lansbury, Onomah, Davis, Grabban.
