Fulham will monitor Mario Lemina’s fitness tomorrow morning after the midfielder felt his hamstring in tonight’s win over West Bromwich Albion.

The Gabonese international, on loan at Craven Cottage from Southampton, enjoyed an excellent first half at the base of Fulham’s midfield, providing an energetic presence to cover the back four and begin plenty of promising attacks. It came as a surprise when he did not reappear for the second half, having been replaced by Harrison Reed, but manager Scott Parker told his post-match press conference that Lemina was withdrawn as a precaution:

“He’s struggling a little bit. He felt his hamstring a little bit in the first half, so we didn’t want to take any risks. We’ll have to see how he is”.
