Fulham duo Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Joe Bryan are set for spells on the sidelines after picking up injuries in Saturday’s loss at Everton.
Right-back Fosu-Mensah, who is on loan at Craven Cottage from Manchester United, only lasted seven minutes of the 3-0 loss at Goodison Park before being stretchered off with a shoulder injury and he had to receive oxygen as he was being helped from the pitch.

Former Bristol City star Bryan also had to leave the action early, although it wasn’t until the final 10 minutes that he hobbled off with a hamstring problem.
Cottagers boss Slavisa Jokanovic has now confirmed that Bryan will be sidelined for a few weeks with his injury, although he remains unsure regarding the severity of Fosu-Mensah’s problem.
“Bryan has a hamstring problem and will be out for a few weeks,” Mensah said. “Timothy has a shoulder problem and I cannot give you a clear answer, we must assess him.”
Fulham are without a win in their last four Premier League games and they will play host to in-form Arsenal in their next top-flight fixture on Sunday.
