Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen hopes Kostas Mitroglou can make their trip to Manchester United on Sunday.

Mitroglou was ineligible for the defeats against Southampton and Sheffield United but Meulensteen hopes he can play some part at Old Trafford.

Meulensteen said: "With Kostas we're trying to bring him up to speed coming from Greece and we’ll see how he goes in training.

"He’s improving all the time. How far he is, I couldn’t really point out to you.

“Johnny (Heitinga) is fully fit, he’s trained very, very well. Everybody [else] is fit and well to go. As we know we had a lot of games over the last period constantly – that means that you have to manage the recovery periods, but everybody is raring to go.”
