The Cottagers are on an upward curve in the Championship and have an impressivre recent record at home with seven wins, two draws and just one loss in their last 10 at Craven Cottage.
We travel to SW6, on the banks of the River Thames, on the back of successive away defeats at Liverpool and KAA Gent in the Europa League and Mauricio has no doubt as to the task in hand.
"Fulham are a good team in the Championship and you know when you play in the FA Cup the gap doesn’t exist between the levels of competition," said Mauricio, who may be able to include Jan Vertonghen in his squad for the first time since mid-January.
"The FA Cup is special and we need to show we can stop the negative way and try to recover the feeling we had before Liverpool.
"Football is about emotion, mentality and after Liverpool we were disappointed, Gent was a good opportunity to turn that feeling but it wasn’t possible. Now we need to take good decisions and try to win this game."
Fulham advise our fans to arrive early for the 2pm kick-off at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
Turnstiles will open 90 minutes before kick-off and supporters are strongly recommended to arrive at least 45 minutes before kick-off to allow for security checks including searches outside the stadium and at the turnstiles. Fans arriving after this time may experience queues and delays entering the stadium. Visiting fans tickets are located in the Putney End at Craven Cottage.
