Last weekend, when Fulham crashed out of the FA Cup, at the 3rd round stage to Oldham Athletic, it was embarrassing.
Claudio Ranieri put his trust in the fringe players in the squad and they didn’t just let the Italian down, they let the Fulham support and themselves down.
This afternoon, the Cottagers return to Premier League action, with a trip to Turf Moor to take on a Burnley side who are experiencing a season almost as bad as ours.
Sean Dyche, who guided his side to the Europa League last season, has seen his charges struggle and it is fair to say that this really is a six-pointer.
If Fulham are to take the points on offer, they need to arrest their dire away form, but on the evidence of recent performances, is that a real possibility?
With the kick-off looming large, we are now in a position to bring you the team-sheets.
Starting with our hosts, Burnley:
