On the back of one win in six matches, which came by a 1-0 scoreline after extra time in the FA Cup, describing Fulham’s attack as goal-shy would have been an understatement.
The turnaround in form has barely been believable, Marco Silva‘s team netting 19 times in three Championship fixtures against Reading, Bristol City and Birmingham City.
The Portuguese will be disappointed with four strikes being shipped in the latter of those fixtures, but it is arguably irrelevant given the output of the front four.
Perhaps the most impressive factor of their 6-2 win over Blues was neither Harry Wilson or Aleksandar Mitrovic got on the scoresheet, youngster Fabio Carvalho instead taking centre stage with a double.
While Silva will insist that there is a long way to go, Fulham are now playing with a swagger which does not look like disappearing anytime soon, something which will naturally concern an inconsistent Stoke side.
Having sprung a number of surprises with his team selection last week, O’Neill may stick with the Stoke XI which started against Hull.
That is dependent on Josh Tymon shaking off a knock, while the likes of Ben Wilmot, Jordan Thompson and Mario Vrancic are pushing for a return to the substitutes’ bench.
D’Margio Wright-Phillips appears likely to keep his place in attack ahead of Tyrese Campbell and Steven Fletcher.
Barring any unforeseen selection issues, Silva is expected to name the same Fulham starting lineup from the Birmingham game.
A number of players were handed a rest during the closing stages, while the backline should remain the same despite their under-par performances over the past week.
