Teenage playmaker Fabio Carvalho will miss Fulham’s midweek meeting with Swansea City as he is still recovering from a fractured toe.

The England youth international, who has three goals and an assist in his five Championship appearances so far this season, hasn’t featured since being substituted against Stoke in August. Fulham head coach Marco Silva revealed that Carvalho has resumed training but will not be ready for the visit of the Swans to Craven Cottage tomorrow night.

The Portuguese head coach has had to adjust his formation slightly in Carvalho’s absence, with captain Tom Cairney also sidelined with a long-term knee injury. Silva told FFC TV this afternoon:

“We have two situations with Tom Cairney and Fabio Carvalho. Tom has started running on the pitch. I am seeing him every single day and, even if he is not involved with the team, he is already progressing. Fabio started this week with the team. He is getting fitter every day and, of course, soon we can see him in the squad.”
