Newcastle United were relegated from the Premier League last term, although managed to persuade manager Rafael Benitez to remain.
Some key players have left in the form of Andros Townsend and Georgino Wijnaldum, however they have purchased well.
Enhanced match odds
The last seven meetings between the pair have been won by the home side, with Fulham winning the most recent back in 2014.
Newcastle have a poor record at Craven Cottage, with their last victory at the ground back in 2007.
