Fulham are hopeful Ryan Sessegnon can play on Boxing Day after two games out with a groin injury.

Midfielder Frank Anguissa remains sidelined and is not expected to return until the new year, according to manager Claudio Ranieri.

Wolves are again likely to be without forward Diogo Jota, who missed the defeat by Liverpool because of a hamstring injury.

He is Wolves' only injury concern heading into the festive period.

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri: "Nuno Espirito Santo is doing a very good job. I watched the match against Liverpool, and Wolverhampton played fantastically.

"They created two or three great chances in the first half. It will be another tough match for us."

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves on facing bottom club Fulham: "We don't think about the table, we think about the game, we think about what we have to do.

"Fulham, we know already [from last season] is a very good team and it is a tough stadium to play, and we have to focus on that."

Haynes, if I remember rightly

Huddersfield playing Man United off the park at Old Trafford. Newcastle the better side at Anfield. Spurs fast asleep against Bournemouth, having rested half their team.

With Palace playing Cardiff, the gap between us and bottom three could see us worrying all over again about going down.

Convinced that another five wins are needed.

West Brom winning again.

You might be right Unc but, if so, I reckon 5 more wins might not be too difficult. The next game probably won't be one of them though.

As well as Moutinho played today, I wouldn't be surprised if he rested him against Spurs and brought back Neves.

Dendonker ill apparently and the reason he wasn't on the bench.

Brighton look the business. No idea why they are where they are. The pack are closing in on us.

Glad I haven't got SKY. Three live Prem matches on the trot today and I'm bored silly.

Radio WM is the only way to experience football to the fullest. After that, it's going to the game. Then comes not bothering whatsoever, followed by watching it on the television.

Johnny Haynes. I remember him well, when he became the first footballer to be on 100 quid a week. Early sixties I believe.

How times have changed.
