Mahmadou Diarra is in a race against time to prove his fitness ahead of Fulham’s trip to Arsenal tomorrow.

The Malian midfielder has picked up another knee injury and Fulham boss Martin Jol rates his chances of making the London derby as no more than 50-50. Diarra is set to have a fitness test in the morning but Jol will definitely be without Welsh winger Simon Davies, who is still recovering from an operation on his hip.
