Lookman a doubt for Wolves game – but Mitrovic ‘looks sharp and full of confidence’

Ademola Lookman trained on Thursday for the first time this week after suffering a hamstring injury against Aston Villa.

Lookman came off two minutes into the second half during the 3-1 defeat and has needed medical treatment every day since.

Scott Parker confirmed he’s now OK but might be a doubt for a starting place against Wolves on Friday.

The head coach said: “He’s been with the medical team, and he’s now picked up his work. And, yes, it was a slight hamstring (strain).”

Fulham face a team Parker believes have the flexibility to spring surprises in the way they set up.

He also felt Monday’s 3-2 home defeat against West Ham was something of an aberration for Nuno Espírito Santo’s side.

“They have plenty of flexibility,” Parker said.

“Sometimes they play with a back five, sometimes a four, and they can change it midway through a game as well.

“I thought the scoreline against West Ham was harsh. They scored some brilliant goals.”

Aleksandar Mitrovic put Fulham ahead at Villa Park – only his third Premier League goal of the season – and Parker says he has noticed the change in the forward.

“He’s buzzing. He looks sharp and full of confidence,” Parker declared.
