Fulham suffer Mitrovic blow ahead of Man Utd clash

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is out of their clash with Manchester United on Sunday.

The Serbian is set to miss out again because of a foot problem when Fulham host Manchester United on Sunday in the last Premier League match before the players jet off to Qatar.

Reports in Serbia, meanwhile, suggest Mitrovic, scorer of nine league goals this season, has been playing on despite two broken bones in his foot since suffering the initial injury while on international duty during September.

With Serbia opening their World Cup campaign against Brazil on November 24, Mitrovic’s likely recovery may leave him short of fitness, but the 28-year-old could still feature later in the group stage for matches with Cameroon and Switzerland.
