Cairney Set To Return Against Everton

Fulham captain Tom Cairney is fit to face Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday after a month out with an ankle injury. The Scotland international could come straight back into the side to replace Kevin McDonald, who played the full 90 minutes in Fulham’s Carabao Cup win at Millwall on Tuesday.

But boss Slavisa Jokanovic says 15-year-old Harvey Elliott will not be involved after the schoolboy made his senior competitive debut against the Lions.

Tim Ream returned to action in the 3-1 midweek win after seven weeks out with a back injury but the defender is likely to be given more time to build up his fitness before playing a League game.

Alfie Mawson has been struggling with a back problem and was being assessed by the Fulham medical department on Friday.

“Everton are a strong and experienced team and they are going to give us problems,” said Jokanovic. “But we have won only one [League game this season], we desperately need three points and to push hard to win the game.”
