Newcastle’s surprise 4-2 win at top four contenders Leicester on Friday left Scott Parker’s side nine points from safety in 18th place, with Burnley one place above them in the table.
Fulham have failed to win any of their last five matches since beating Liverpool at Anfield and must win their remaining four fixtures to stay up.
Burnley were defeated by West Ham on Monday and while their Premier League status has all but been secured for another season, Sean Dyche’s side have the opportunity to seal Fulham’s fate with three points.

What is the team news?
Harrison Reed is a doubt for the hosts after picking up a knock. The midfielder trained on Friday and faces a late fitness test. Long-term absentee Tom Cairney remains out with a knee injury.
Robbie Brady and Kevin Long remain side-lined for the visitors but Dale Stevens could return from injury. Chris Wood is expected to be fit after being substituted late on against West Ham on Monday with a deal leg.
Fulham: Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Robinson; Zambo Anguissa, Lemina; Cavaleiro, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman; Maja
Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Vydra
Fulham could be without midfielder Harrison Reed for the visit of Burnley on Monday, with the Cottagers needing to avoid defeat to keep alive their slim survival hopes.
Reed, who has been likened to manager Scott Parker for his role in the team, took part in light training for the first time since a knock and will need to be assessed over the weekend before a decision is made over his inclusion.
Captain Tom Cairney, who has not featured since December, is edging closer to a return and has been training with the team, although the manager admitted he was "nervous" over rushing back the 30-year-old.
The Clarets' 11-goal top scorer was withdrawn late on in Monday night's 2-1 defeat against West Ham with a dead leg but Sean Dyche confirmed the New Zealand striker will be fit to start at Craven Cottage.
Midfielder Dale Stephens is expected to be in contention despite a knock that might need treatment at some stage going forwards but winger Robbie Brady and defender Kevin Long remain on the sidelines.

Will Fulham’s fate be sealed?
Last weekend, Scott Parker’s men were beaten 2-0 at Stamford Bridge by West London rivals Chelsea.
This means the Cottagers are now winless in six Premier League games, amassing just on point in this time.
So, if Fulham were to lose this, the Championship play-off winners would be heading straight back down to the second-tier.
This would, in turn, secure Burnley’s survival.
The Clarets were last in action a week ago when West Ham came from behind to win 2-1 at Turf Moor.
However, a week earlier, Sean Dyche’s side pretty much assured their top-flight status by beating Wolves 4-0 at Molineux; Chris Wood with a hat-trick in that one.
This means Burnley are ten points above their hosts and a win here would send Fulham down and secure a sixth successive season of top-flight football at Turf Moor.
Will the visitors be too strong at Craven Cottage?
Fulham have won eight of their last nine home league games against Burnley.
However, they’ve currently scored just nine league goals at home so far this season and no club in English top-flight history has ever failed to reach double figures in terms of home goals.
