Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen has no new injury worries for his side's clash against Manchester City at Craven Cottage.

Striker Hugo Rodallega has resumed training after his lengthy lay-off with a muscle injury but is unlikely to be rushed back into the squad.

Central defender Brede Hangeland is making good progress after surgery on his sciatic nerve complaint as is defender Matthew Briggs after his hernia operation.

Manchester City have a problem at right-back with Pablo Zabaleta and Micah Richards (both hamstring) injured.

Possible alternatives include central defender Dedryck Boyata, midfielder James Milner or left-backs Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov.

The forward line is also weakened by the absence of top scorer Sergio Aguero (calf) and Stevan Jovetic (illness) is not ready to return. Defender Matija Nastasic (calf) is also still out.

Fulham squad: Stekelenburg, Riether, Senderos, Hughes, Arne Riise, Sidwell, Parker, Karagounis, Dejagah, Berbatov, Kacaniklic, Kasami, Ruiz, Bent, Stockdale, Richardson, Duff, Zverotic, Vigen Christensen, Amorebieta.

Man City squad: Pantilimon, Hart, Boyata, Milner, Kompany, Demichelis, Lescott, Clichy, Kolarov, Nasri, Silva, Navas, Garcia, Fernandinho, Toure, Rodwell, Dzeko, Negredo, Guidetti.
