Fulham v Stoke line-ups: Whites debuts, Potters duo out, Sidwell starts

On-loan goalkeeper Joe Lewis is handed his Fulham debut for the League Cup third-round tie against Stoke City at Craven Cottage.

As expected, Whites boss Kit Symons has made changes for the game, leaving out the likes of Jamie O’Hara and Tom Cairney.

Summer signing Sakari Mattila makes his full debut, while Cauley Woodrow comes in for Moussa Dembele.

Stoke, meanwhile, are without Mame Biram Diouf, who has a hamstring problem.

Bojan, who returned to action at the weekend following a knee injury, is also absent.

Ex-Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell starts against his former club.

Fulham: Lewis, Richards, Stearman, Burn, Ream, Christensen, Mattila, Kacaniklic, Pringle, McCormack, Woodrow.
Subs: Lonergan, Kavanagh, Evans, Hyndman, Bodurov, Tunnicliffe, Dembele.

Stoke: Given; Bardsley, Wilson, Wollscheid, Pieters; Sidwell, Cameron; Odemwingie, Ireland, Afellay; Crouch.
Subs: Haugaard; Muniesa, Johnson, Arnautovic, Joselu, Van Ginkel, Shaqiri.
