Reed looks unlikely to return against Palace

Fulham are unlikely to risk Harrison Reed against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The former Southampton midfielder has been training “for a couple of days” according to Scott Parker, but the head coach has plenty of cover in the shape of Mario Lemina and Andre Frank-Anguissa.

Central defender Joachim Andersen suffered ankle ligament damage in training a few days after he signed on transfer deadline day and is set to be out for at least another month.

Likewise, right-back Kenny Tete has a torn calf, while Josh Onomah has been left out of the named Premier League squad of 25.

The young midfielder has a knee injury that will keep him out of the squad another two months, if not the remainder of 2020.

Onomah was sidelined last season when on loan with Whites. He picked up a knee injury in Fulham’s Championship defeat by Barnsley on 15 February and required surgery, and next appeared on June 27 against Leeds.

He has already made four appearances this campaign before pulling up short – the last in the 3-0 Carabao League Cup exit to Brentford on October 1.
