Why is Raúl Jiménez not playing for Fulham in the Premier League this weekend?


Fulham are without striker Raúl Jiménez for Saturday’s Premier League game against Burnley at Turf Moor. The Mexican attacker scored five goals in his last nine league outings, but in Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Everton, he left the field at half-time with a hamstring issue and had to be substituted by head coach Marco Silva.

“When you have an issue in your hamstring, it is not a good sign,” said Fulham boss Marco Silva ahead of the clash with the Clarets.

“When you play three games in seven days, intense games, there is always a risk. It has not been easy to rotate. If we were short (in numbers) before the game, we will be shorter now.”

According to the official Fulham website, Jiménez and Issa Diop will be unavailable at Burnley, while Harry Wilson and Adama Traoré are also out.

Broja comes in

Fulham have had their issues in the striker department but did clinch a late January window move for forward Armando Broja. On Friday, the club also announced that fellow forward Carlos Vinicius has joined Galatasaray on loan until the end of the season. The 28-year-old fell down the pecking order at the London club and only scored two goals in 13 league appearances.

It now remains to be seen how long Jiménez will be out of action for with his current hamstring issue. The experienced striker previously missed three games on the bounce for the Craven Cottage outfit after being sent off in the Premier League fixture with Newcastle at St James’ Park.
