Fulham

Schurrle could make Cottagers return

29th March 2019, 17:06 by Aidan Perkins

Forward Andre Schurrle could return for Fulham against Manchester City on Saturday after five games out with a virus.

The German has not featured under current boss Scott Parker but has made good progress over the international break and may be back involved when title-chasers City visit Craven Cottage in the early game.

Defender Alfie Mawson is also recovering well from a knee injury but Saturday's clash is likely to come too soon for him.

Ex-Chelsea and Fulham midfielder Parker says he has a plan to try and contain Pep Guardiola's rampant City side, who can move back to the top of the table with a win as Liverpool, who currently have a two-point lead, do not play until Sunday.

Parker said: "You certainly have to adapt to face City, and we've been working on that over the last 10 days and now for the next couple of days too.

"They are well-coached, well-drilled, and we've been trying to give the lads as much information as possible for the challenges we're going to face.

"They are that good that we can put all the scenarios in place, but you've still got to face them.

"We all understand the challenge ahead, fantastic players, team and along with a manager who will arguably go down as one of the greatest as well."
