The four players who could miss the Fulham clash due to injuries are Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, and Eric Bailly. Martial limped off the Arsenal clash with a suspected muscle injury but Jose Mourinho in a post-match press conference after the 2-2 draw noted that the injury isn’t serious, “He doesn’t think it is an injury, he thinks it’s a pre-injury, he was feeling tight.”
Mourinho admitted that he would have to field players who are not 100% fit for the Fulham tie, “I don’t know. Training session, 11 o’clock will give us some answers. Smalling, Jones, Martial, Bailly, of course Lindelof and Alexis we don’t even speak about them, but we need answers.
“And for sure we are going to play with players not with the maximum of their [fitness] potential, but players who will put themselves available for the team like Smalling did last match, Jones at Southampton, players in difficulty who go one step forward to try and help the team.”
