Scott Parker quotes
“The other night, was there a big difference in performance? Not really. Granted, I thought we played very, very well, but we’ve played very well over the last run of 14 games.
“We now have a massive week of games ahead of us; we go to Burnley on Wednesday, Sheffield United at the weekend, and then Crystal Palace.
“Like always, it’s a massive game for us ahead. We understand the problems that Burnley are going to cause us, and we need to be prepared for that.”
Sean Dyche quotes
“[Mee]’s fine, but we still have to follow the protocols, the medical protocols, so he won’t be available.
“It’s very difficult for medical teams now because there are that many rules — rightly so, by the way — to make players safe, and to get on there quickly to affect things, they have to be cautious.
“My feeling on not targeting games is that I can’t talk about the need for consistency and then only apply it to certain games. My way of looking at it is that we should be up for every game.”

Fulham team news
Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is currently self-isolating having returned a positive coronavirus test.
Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo remain long-term absentees, but Antonee Robinson will be vying to return to the starting 11 having surrendered his place on Sunday.
Burnley team news
Captain Ben Mee suffered concussion against Palace and has been ruled out of this fixture as a “precaution”, according to manager Sean Dyche.
Chris Wood, Matej Vydra, Dale Stephens and Erik Pieters are all injury doubts, but Charlie Taylor should be able to feature.
Burnley have not lost any of their last 30 encounters with Fulham at Turf Moor, in any competition, winning 25 of those.
Fulham last won at the Lancashire ground in April 1951 and, should they fail to emerge from this match triumphant, it will be their longest ever run of matches without an away win against a single opponent.
The most recent encounter between the two sides took place in January, when Burnley won at Craven Cottage to secure themselves a place in the FA Cup fifth round.
Jay Rodriguez opened the scoring in the first half and doubled his tally from the spot on 71 minutes, before Kevin Long put the cherry on the cake in an effortless win for the Clarets.
To the eye of the observer, Fulham are a better team than the standings currently suggest, but the fact is they do find themselves in the thick of a fierce relegation battle and need to rack up significantly more points than at least one team above them from now until the end of the season.
The victory at Everton on Sunday night marked the arrival of a figure who could be key to Fulham’s push for survival; Josh Maja scored both of the goals at Goodison Park and will be hoping to carry that form onto Turf Moor.
Fulham currently sit 18th in the Premier League table.
Having struggled at the very beginning of the campaign, finding themselves bottom of the pile after just six games, Burnley soon managed to crawl out of the bottom three and now have a pretty good chance of securing five straight years in the top flight.
Their most recent outing saw the Clarets dispatch Crystal Palace on their own turf, with goals from Johann Gudmundsson, Jay Rodriguez and Matt Lowton earning a comfortable victory.
Burnley currently sit 16th in the Premier League table.
This match was originally scheduled to be played in early January, but a Covid-19 outbreak at Fulham’s Motspur Park training ground — as well as a busy mid-season fixture list for both — means these two sides share their first meeting of 2020/21 unusually late in the season.
It means the match bears even more significance now than the match might have done on its original date.
It’s 16th vs 18th, a huge match in the battle to avoid the Premier League drop, and a draw won’t do for either: victory for Burnley would generate some distance between them and the bottom three, while a win for their opponents would keep their survival aspirations very much alive.
