Aleksandar Mitrovic injury update vs Watford
Serbian international Aleksandar Mitrovic was out of action for Fulham on Saturday against Man City.
Mitrovic wasn’t even on the bench yesterday.
Mitrovic has been away with his national team during the international break.
He played 10 minutes in a friendly against Germany, and 90 minutes in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Portugal.
Next up for relegation-threatened Fulham is a trip to Watford in midweek.
It’s looking likely that Mitrovic could miss the Watford game too. Scott Parker has revealed:
Mitro has been struggling with a slight problem for the last couple of weeks. Coming back from international duty and he’s not ready to play today.
We’re looking to get him some treatment and take it day by day with Mitro at the moment to see where we are come Tuesday, and longer term we’ll look at that and see how it goes.
Mitrovic a doubt for Watford.
“Aleksandar has been struggling in the last few weeks with an ongoing issue he has. The turnaround for Tuesday is going be a day to day basis. We’ll try and get some treatment, but really I couldn’t make a call on whether or not he will be fit” #FFC

Fulham dead certs for relegation
Huddersfield were relegated from the Premier League on Saturday at Crystal Palace.
Fulham, with only 17 points from 32 games, as all-but certain to go down with the Terriers.
Man City beat the Cottagers 2-0 over the weekend. Goals from Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero in the first half lift City above Liverpool into first place.
As for Watford, they lost 2-1 at Man United on Saturday.
The Hornets put in a positive performance at Old Trafford. But will Watford have one eye on the FA Cup semifinal against Wolves when they take on Fulham in a few days time?
