Man City in battle to secure Fulham starlet ? report

Manchester City are apparently ready to step up their interest in Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon.

This is according to Sportsmail, who state City targeted the 16-year-old in August and have been monitoring his progress this season.

However, they face competition from Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, with the Gunners seeing a £3million January offer rejected.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic is understandable keen to hold on to the young talent.

“He is a very interesting project as a player, but it is better not to put him under any pressure,” Jokanovic said.

The Serb, speaking to BBC Radio London, added: “He is a young player and he will participate in the future and help us. He has many years of being a player ahead of him.

 

“It is not a question of if someone is 16 or 36, if you are ready to play football, it is not important how old you are. Leeds was the first time he played in the Championship and he did a very good job.”

Sessegnon would not be the first high-profile Fulham youngster to complete a switch to the Sky Blues as Patrick Roberts made a £13million move to the Manchester.

Roberts, now on loan at Celtic, scored against his parent club in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with City at the Etihad Stadium.

Five-star Fulham dismantle wretched Reading

Ten-man Reading saw their winning run come to a shuddering halt as Fulham cruised to a 5-0 win at Craven Cottage.

Jaap Stam’s side had won five successive games, but their promotion push suffered a major setback on Saturday.

An own goal from Chris Gunter helped Fulham on their way and there was no looking back once Chris Martin extended the lead.

Danny Williams was then sent off for Reading and it only got worse as goals from Sone Aluko, Stefan Johansen and Martin again made it an afternoon to forget.

Reading headed to west London as the form team of the second tier, but the build-up had been dominated by off-field events.

A takeover which would see a Chinese brother and sister seize control is reported to be close to completion and Stam revealed he feared for his job if the new owners decide to bring in their own man. This will do him no favours.

Stam has implemented an eye-catching passing game, but he would not have wanted Jordan Obita to gift Fulham a chance in the sixth minute.

Obita’s 40-yard free-kick was cut out by Floyd Ayite, who advanced forward before stinging the palms of Reading goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi. It set the tone.

Reading were constantly playing themselves into trouble and Scott Malone’s cross-shot again forced Al-Habsi into action as Fulham came charging out of the blocks.

It was no surprise when Fulham took a 15th-minute lead, albeit through Gunter’s mistake.

No Fulham player was within yards of Gunter, but he got it all wrong and headed Ryan Fredericks’ cross past his own goalkeeper.

Reading had been uncharacteristically sloppy with and without the ball and the own goal summed up their sluggish start.

David Button in the Fulham goal was a virtual spectator. When Reading did carve out a chance, Roy Beerens delayed his shot and the dominant home side cleared the danger.

Stam would surely have been into his players at half-time, but it not have the desired effect as Fulham extended their lead four minutes after the restart.

Ayite fed Martin and the on-loan striker galloped forward and, as Reading’s defence retreated, fired beyond Al-Habsi from 25 yards out.

Martin should have also been celebrating twice more just two minutes later. First he headed Tom Cairney’s free-kick over from close range.

Then Ayite’s cross found him in space, but he blazed over from 12 yards out.

It went from bad to worse for Reading when Williams saw red for kicking out at Johansen after reacting to the midfielder’s late challenge with 54 minutes on the clock.

Fulham were now in control, but in danger of taking their eye off the ball.

Dominic Samuel bore down on goal, but was denied by Fredericks, while an unmarked George Evans headed straight at Button from close-range.

But it was game over when Aluko cut inside to curle home from the angle in the 68th minute. Despite Reading’s protests that Martin was offside, the goal rightfully stood.

Reading had gone to pieces and within two minutes Johansen strode forward to pile on the misery with a fine finish with the outside of his left foot.

Martin’s late free-kick added the gloss on a nightmare afternoon for Reading.

Celtic's Moussa Dembele: No regrets over decision to leave PSG for Fulham

Liam Rosenior and Beram Kayal still missing for Brighton

Brighton remain without Liam Rosenior and Beram Kayal for the visit of Fulham.

Former Cottagers defender Rosenior is working his way back to fitness following an ankle injury and is three or four weeks away.

Kayal is also recovering from an ankle problem which has sidelined him since September.

But boss Chris Hughton has no new injury concerns as the second-placed Seagulls attempt to extend their unbeaten run to 12 matches.

Fulham counterpart Slavisa Jokanovic again has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Winger Floyd Ayite is over his recent ankle injury and came on as a substitute during the 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.

Jokanovic has named an unchanged side for the last three matches, in which Fulham have collected two wins prior to last Saturday’s stalemate.

Ayite, Ryan Sessegnon and Matt Smith are among the players pushing for recalls should Jokanovic opt to make changes.

Slavisa Jokanovic thinks Fulham were hard done by against Sheffield Wednesday

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic thinks his side were denied all three points against Sheffield Wednesday after Stefan Johansen saw shouts for a first half penalty waved away in a 1-1 Craven Cottage draw.

The Fulham midfielder appeared to have been pulled back in the area by Jack Hunt before Scott Malone’s last minute goal eventually cancelled out Fernando Forestieri’s goal.

Jokanovic said afterwards: “It was one situation in the Sheffield Wednesday box where one player pulled the shirt of Stefan Johansen. I saw this situation and everyone in the stadium saw this.

“It must be some kind of change of rules. The rules say it is clearly a penalty.

“They explained the change of rules. If they talk about this situation and then do not point to the penalty spot, I didn’t hear very well.

“I don’t want to be funny but it is a big mistake in a very dangerous moment for us. People care about important decisions.”

Jokanovic believed the result, achieved thanks to Malone’s half-volley, proves his Fulham side are improving.

“It was a fair result, we played very well and I’m really satisfied with some parts of the game,” he said.

“We did not surrender in any moment. They played the better football and closer to three points.

“If we had played this game last year we would have lost 3-0.

“We did not offer our best performance but it was a small step where we are learning to compete.”

Opposite number Carlos Carvalhal was happy despite the lack goal denying his side who appeared on course for three points thanks to a fine Forestieri goal.

“We performed very well,” he said. “Their team are in good shape, had won the last game 5-0 here and were in good momentum.

“We scored one goal and probably should have killed the game.

“We expected Fulham to press in the second half. In counter-attack we could have killed the game.

“We are not happy with the scoreline, we deserved more. We felt we achieved one point but lost two.

“I’m very happy with the team and the personality we showed. The Fulham fans will realise just how tough a team Sheffield Wednesday are.

“The team performed very well. I felt most of them hit their best level. I said Fernando was back before the game as I know my players. Fernando is a player we need like this and the real Fernando like last season.”

Wednesday suffered injury to Gary Hooper, who was forced off in the second half.

“Hooper will have a scan, let’s see, it seems like a muscular problem but we will analyse him,” added Carvalhal. “We don’t know at the moment.”
