Fulham hopeful of having Ryan Sessegnon fit to face Newcastle

Fulham vs Newcastle

Fulham travel to Newcastle on Saturday as they go in search of their first clean sheet this season.

After 17 games Fulham have accumulated a dismal nine points.

This puts them 20th in the table and three points away from safety.

Claudio Ranieri recently took over as Fulham boss and while he did guide them to a win in his first game vs Southampton, results have not been good since.

Fulham’s biggest problem is their inability to keep clean sheets.

In 17 league games this campaign, Fulham have let in a whopping 42 goals.

Their last game saw them lose 2-0 at home to West Ham.

But despite suffering another loss at the weekend, Calum Chambers believes Fulham are improving under Ranieri.

“We’ve improved a lot of things over the last few weeks. Things are changing, things are looking positive.

“We feel we played alright against West Ham. We created chances but we just didn’t put them in the back of the net. We’ve got to stay together, be positive.”

Ryan Sessegnon update

Fulham could also be set to welcome back Ryan Sessegnon as they prepare for a must-win clash with 14th place Newcastle.

Sessegnon has been a key member of Fulham’s squad this season and assisted two in Fulham’s win over Southampton.
