The on-loan Ajax man had looked assured in the opening 45 minutes at St Jamesâ€™ Park, but a late challenge early in the second period by Moussa Sissoko meant he had to be replaced by Emmanuel Frimpong.
â€śThe doctor checked it and my ankle is really swollen,â€ť Eyong told fulhamfc.com after the match. â€śThatâ€™s why I couldnâ€™t continue the game, so on Monday weâ€™re going to see what it looks like and then the doctor can say what the situation with my ankle is.
â€śI got the opportunity to make my full debut and start a game for the first time for Fulham and I really wanted to give everything in the game.
â€śI was helping the team to do well in the first half and also at the start of the second half so it was not the best feeling for me when I had to come off when the team needed me.â€ť
