West Ham defender Diop up for big Mitrovic challenge

West Ham defender Issa Diop is already thinking about his showdown with Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The two London teams meet on Friday night.

"Mitrovic is a big player," Diop told whufc.com. “He's a big, powerful striker, very strong and very good in aerial situations, so we need to be careful.

“I will work out how I can mark him on Friday night.

"I enjoy those physical battles with the strikers and not many will be as physical as Mitrovic. He uses his body really well, so I have to figure out how to get into good positions to stop him."
