Fulham striker misses Everton victory after testing positive for coronavirus

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.
