Sadly Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Danny Murphy has been ruled out of tonight’s Europa League clash with Roma and is likely to be unavailable for the trip to Wigan on Sunday as well.

The Fulham captain picked up a knee injury in the win over Hull a couple of weeks ago and is still not quite up to the strains of a competitive game. Dickson Etuhu, who came on for the last six minutes of the Liverpool game, could be in line to make his own return from a knee problem from the start this evening.

Pay no attention to that squad list that appears below Teamtalk’s preview by the way. It is speculative at best – as David Elm is ineligible and others don’t feature in the European squad list.
