“We’ll re-assess everyone today and then make our decisions tonight for tomorrow’s game,” Andre told us ahead of training on Friday.

Scott Parker is back in light training while longer-term injuries Younes Kaboul (knee) and Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee) remain sidelined.

Emmanuel Adebayor serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

Andre said that recovery time was key at the moment with so many fixtures - Fulham will be our fourth game in 10 days since Lazio and our 12th since October 20.

“It’s been non-stop and we have three more games ahead of us, Fulham, Panathinaikos and Everton and then we have a breather before Swansea,” he added.

“The mentality of the players has been so good that we’ve been able to focus on the games, give 100 per cent and then recover quickly."
