Follow live coverage as Fulham face Crystal Palace in the Premier League today.

Fulham require three points from their final two matches to break their Premier League points total record, set back in 2008-09 when Roy Hodgson was in charge at Craven Cottage.

Marco Silva’s side were handed a boost last weekend when Aleksandar Mitrovic returned from an eight-game ban to score against Southampton – a game which confirmed the Saints’ relegation.

It will be Fulham’s final home game of the season as they welcome now-Crystal Palace caretaker manager Hodgson back and celebrate a season where they have exceeded all expectations.

Fulham boss Silva was also among the nominees for the manager of the season award.

Crystal Palace will be without Wilfried Zaha, as Hodgson prepares his return to the club he guided out of relegation trouble and then to the Europa League final in 2010.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today’s game in the live blog below:

Crystal Palace also make just one switch of personnel - in their case, a regretably enforced one. Edouard replaces injured talisman Wilfried Zaha, who could now have played his last game of the season - and has perhaps already made his final Palace appearance. Luka Milivojevic, James Tomkins and Jeffrey Schlupp are all absent from the Eagles' squad once again.

After scoring as a substitute last week, Mitrovic makes his first Fulham start since the end of an eight-game ban; Vinicius is therefore dropped to the bench in the hosts' only change today. Daniel James again misses out due to a thigh injury, while Andreas Pereira, Tim Ream and Layvin Kurzawa also remain absent.

Team news

Aleksandar Mitrovic will make his first Fulham start since returning from his eight-match ban for his conduct towards referee Chris Kavanagh during his side’s FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford.

Carlos Vinicius makes way in the only change made by Marco Silva from Fulham’s win at Southampton last weekend.

Crystal Palace brought in Odsonne Edouard for Wilfried Zaha – who has sustained an injury – in their only change for the match.

After a 2-0 win over Bournemouth last week, Crystal Palace occupy 12th place in the table; level on points with 11th-placed Chelsea. The Eagles have ascended the standings since Roy Hodgson's return but have recently lost back-to-back away matches without scoring - in all, Palace have won just twice on the road in 2023. Today's visitors were beaten 3-0 by Fulham on Boxing Day and have never lost twice to the Cottagers in a single Premier League season.

Ahead of today's final London derby of the 2022-23 Premier League season, Fulham are seeking their third successive win, following recent triumphs over Leicester City and Southampton. Marco Silva's men consigned the latter to relegation last weekend, but they sit safely in 10th place themselves after promotion last year. Eight defeats from their last 12 matches, though, have seen the Cottagers' pursuit of an unlikely European place recede, and they have lost both of their last two home games against Crystal Palace.
