Fulham

Anguissa set to return for Fulham

11th January 2019, 17:46 by Tom Hill

Fulham coach Claudio Ranieri could set to recall Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa for the six-pointer against Burnley at Turf Moor.

The midfielder is finally back in contention after recovering from an ankle issue that saw him miss the last five matches.

He sat out last week's FA Cup defeat to Oldham as a precaution but Ranieri is set to recall him and a number of first-team stars.

Centre-back Alfie Mawson remains sidelined with a knee injury, meaning Calum Chambers should return at centre-back after missing the Arsenal game due to the terms of his loan contract from the Gunners.

Burnley are unbeaten against Fulham at home since April 1951 but Ranieri insists he still trusts his squad.

He told reporters: "I'm positive because I believe in this team and this club. But also Burnley think, 'if we kill Fulham we go up'.

"And for this reason, I think it's a very, very crucial match. Believe me, at the moment I never look at the table. Because I know where we are, staying under water and I want to go up!"
