Ashkan Dejagah has been ruled out of Fulham’s trip to Manchester City along with Dan Burn and record signing Kostas Mitroglou.

Dejagah scored the winner against Newcastle on Saturday but has a muscle problem, as does centre-back Burn, who came on as a late substitute in the 1-0 victory over the Magpies.

And manager Felix Magath said on Friday that Mitroglou is still nursing a knee problem and will not be considered for the game at the Etihad Stadium.

The Greece striker has started only once since his £12m move from Olympiakos in January.

Scott Parker also remains sidelined but could return for the home game against Everton a week on Sunday.

Fulham are bottom of the Premier League but their recent win has boosted hopes that they can escape relegation.

They face a tough task against City, who are fourth in the table having played three games less than leaders Chelsea.
