The Serbia international, who has scored six times in the top flight this season, was withdrawn in the first half of Fulham's 4-1 defeat against Newcastle last weekend with ligament damage in his foot. Manager Marco Silva hopes the injury to his star striker is not serious, but admits he faces a race against time to be fit for Fulham's clash at the London Stadium. "He [Mitrovic] is still a doubt," said Silva ahead of the trip to Newcastle. Silva revealed that Mitrovic sustained the injury as he scored a hat-trick in Serbia's 4-1 Nations League win over Sweden on September 24.
After a succession of injuries limited the striker to just 11 appearances last season, Bamford has also suffered a disrupted start to this term. "First of all, it's worth noting that we feel that Cree Summerville is in the best form since I've been here," Marsch said.
Moyes confirmed Cornet will again miss out on Sunday's game as he recovers from a calf problem which forced him off during the first half of the win over Wolves. West Ham captain Declan Rice started on the bench against Anderlecht, coming on for the closing stages. Moyes intends to continue to carefully manage the workload of the England midfielder. "We don't use him in all the games, but I think the point is Declan played two games for England last week, then played in our Premier League game as well," Moyes said.
