Roy Hodgson has admitted that he’s concerned about the effect an extended run in the Europa League could have on Fulham’s league form.

But he is confident that Fulham will have enough strength to prevent themselves from becoming embroiled in a relegation battle.

It would be foolish of me to say there is no chance of that happening. I think the team are still strong.

We’re even getting stronger if anything. But last year we were extremely lucky with injuries. I don’t know quite whether that will happen to us again.
