Villa lost 2-0 though in their previous meeting with Fulham, who are 5/4 (2.25) to win this game without extra-time.
Ahmed Elmohamady missed Villa’s last game with a muscular injury and will require a late fitness test, whilst Alan Hutton should continue to deputise at left-back due to Neil Taylor’s hamstring problem
Goalkeeper Jed Steer (shoulder) and utility man Axel Tuanzebe (foot) are unlikely to feature.
Fulham’s Sheyi Ojo is out and while Floyd Ayite is back from a hamstring problem, Aboubakar Kamara is likely to .
Cottagers to take control?
Fulham have won 22 and drawn six of their last 32 Championship matches, form that would have put them five points above title-winning Wolves over a whole season.
Although recent below-par performances against Sunderland and Birmingham City invited a little scrutiny, a controlled display in their 2-0 second leg win over the Rams answered questions over their big-game mentality.
For that reason, the 11/4 (3.75) on them winning the first half and ending the game victorious is tempting.
Preview and predictions
Seven of Fulham’s last 10 games have seen two or fewer goals, as have six of Villa’s last seven. For our best bet therefore, we’re taking the 10/3 (4.33) on a Whites win with under 2.5 goals.
