Tom Cairney will miss Fulham’s trip to Brighton this weekend because he hurt his foot during’s last week’s win over Burnley. Neeskens Kebano, Tim Ream and Floyd Ayite are also injured. So this is what Fulham’s squad will probably look like: Bettinelli, Fabri, Chambers, Mawson, Le Marchand, Christie, Bryan, R Sessegnon, S Sessegnon, Odoi, McDonald, Schurrle, Seri, Mitrovic, Rico, Fosu-Mensah, Johansen, Cisse, Vietto, Kamara, Zambo Anguissa.
Chelsea’s Mason Mount – currently on loan at Derby – and Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka have been handed their first England Under-21 call ups. But there’s no room for Phil Foden or Jadon Sancho in the squad to face Holland at Carrow Road next Thursday.
“There’s a clamour for these players and they are exceptional but there are also exceptional players who have got us to the place were are now,” manager Aidy Boothroyd told the Press Association. “It’s exactly the right thing. Whether they are with us in October or not that’s a different matter and there will be a few others like that but overall it’s the sensible thing to do. We’ll see what happens later on down the line. It has to be the right time, the right game and right competition. We won’t be reacting on a couple of good games. We’re going to do things properly.”
