Fulham centre-back Mawson excited for Chambers reunion

Fulham centre-back Alfie Mawson can't wait to play alongside teammate Calum Chambers.

Both are new to Fulham, having left Swansea and Arsenal this summer. But their time playing together for England U21s has Mawson excited to rekindle their partnership.

He told SkySports: "I know Calum from the England U21s. We're really good pals and we've got a really good understanding and friendship off the pitch which comes on to the pitch because Cal's such a fantastic player.

"He's more of a technical player. Normally I'm more of a talker and we work really well like we did for England and whatever (Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic) wants to do we'll respect.

"If he does it with me and Cal then we've got that understanding straightaway, and it's always helpful to have that."
