Aston Villa make the trip to London to take on Fulham on Thursday in search of a much-needed three points.
A 2-0 defeat doesn't actually do justice to an improved performance against Chelsea at the weekend, but with Steven Gerrard now under immense pressure, results are becoming much more important than performances.
Fulham, meanwhile, have enjoyed a positive return to the Premier League amid plenty of doubts over their credentials. Having said that, their form has plateaued in recent weeks, which needs correcting before they start to undo their hard work.
Here's all you need to know ahead of this one.

Fulham team news
There were no casualties to the squad coming away from the weekend's draw with Bournemouth, but Marco Silva is expected to provide a final update ahead of Thursday's game to confirm who is and isn't available.
Kenny Tete has been out in recent weeks, but was close to a return at the start of October and could potentially make that return here. Nathaniel Chalobah will miss out as he serves a suspension. Aleksander Mitrovic brushed off fitness concerns at the weekend, so should be available once again.
Tyrone Mings suffered an ankle injury late on in the game against Chelsea, but is expected to be fine for the trip to Fulham. Leon Bailey proved his fitness and is also expected to be available.
Otherwise, there are no surprises expected regarding returns from injury, with Lucas Digne still not quite over an ankle/heel issue, Boubacar Kamara out for the rest of the year, and Diego Carlos still nursing an achilles injury.
