Baku, February 16, AZERTAC
Fulham have confirmed striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has tested positive for coronavirus, according to Sky Sports.
The Serbia international was not part of Scott Parker's squad which won 2-0 against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday night.
Fulham confirmed the reason for Mitrovic's absence was due to a positive coronavirus test, in a tweet prior to kick-off.
It is now expected that Mitrovic will be unavailable for Fulham's next two Premier League fixtures - the first against Burnley on Wednesday, followed by a home clash against bottom club Sheffield United on Saturday.
Mitrovic was one of a number of high-profile players who broke coronavirus guidelines over the festive period after he was pictured with Crystal Palace captain Luka Milivojevic on New Year's Eve.
