Huddersfield Town scourge Tom Cairney on Fulham's return to meet up with Scott Malone

Image

sbo666 Huddersfield Town know all about Fulham captain Tom Cairney. The midfielder who scored Fulham’s winning goal in the Championship Play-off final against Aston Villa helped them to two comprehensive victories over Town in 2016-17, when David Wagner’s side won promotion via exactly the same route. Alongside Scott Malone, who later left Craven Cottage for the John Smith’s Stadium, Cairney was part of a 5-0 win for Fulham against Town down in London and then, the last time the two clubs met just over a year ago, he netted a penalty as Fulham won 4-1 in Huddersfield (with Malone grabbing their equaliser).

Malone and his old mates will now be reunited in the top flight and Cairney cannot wait to lead Fulham into the Premier League – especially as he believes promotion will keep the team together. Vultures have been circling over Craven Cottage this season after Slavisa Jokanovic again got the west Londoners playing with style and skill. Defeat to Aston Villa in the play-off final would likely have seen this Fulham side broken up, but Cairney’s first-half goal secured a 1-0 win that ends their four-year absence from the top flight. The skipper has been linked with a move away, along with the likes of 18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon and marauding full-back Ryan Fredericks, but Wembley glory strengthens the Whites’ position and hopes of retaining some loan players, too. sbo666

“I signed a contract extension last summer - I believed in what we’re doing here,” said Cairney, who attracted attention from West Ham in January. “I believed in the way we play, and the manager has put a lot of faith in me. I’ve tried to repay him the best I can, and I think I did that today. “I think people were coming to the end of their contracts and stuff. “But I think this team being in the Premier League, based in London, I think it’s an attractive club and I think it keeps the team together. “I think that’s why I said we needed to win. Fulham captain Cairney, unsurprisingly, called Saturday’s win the highlight of a career he expects to continue for some time yet.

“I am 27 years old,” he said. “I want to play football. “Yeah, the next few years are probably going to be my prime and whatever. “To be honest, I feel like I will get better as I get older. I am not exactly going to lose pace - do you know what I mean? “I am getting more and more experiences the more I play. I understand my position. “I have got a lot of responsibly in this team and I try and make us play. “But, honestly, to a man we were outstanding.” Fulham showed grit to match their undoubted ability, which has so regularly been on display during the campaign. An untimely end to their 23-match unbeaten run prevented them earning automatic promotion ahead of Cardiff, but the Wembley victory seals their place in the record books as well as neutrals’ appreciation. “No one remembers nice football or ‘they were good’,” Cairney said. “No one says that.

“People only remember winners and we said before we go out, ‘Wembley only remembers winners’ - and we had to win. “Our football alone will get credit in the season because we got promoted. People will talk about Fulham. “If we lost, nobody would talk about us. “Football won. I think God was on our side. “The last 20 to 25 minutes, every time the ball went out of play the Fulham fans acted like we scored a goal.”sbo666

Mohamed Salah Could Be Out For 'Three To Four Weeks'

Image

sbobet 789 Mohamed Salah faces a fight to play in any of Egypt's World Cup group games, according to one of Liverpool's physiotherapists. Club physio Ruben Pons has estimated Salah would normally need "three to four weeks" to recover from the left shoulder injury he sustained during Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

A three-week absence would keep Salah out of action until June 19 while four weeks would see the forward sidelined until June 26, the day after Egypt's last group game. Salah may also then need to regain a degree of match fitness. Egypt's opening fixture in Group A is against Uruguay on June 15. They then face Russia on June 19 and Saudi Arabia on June 25.

"He is sad about what happened but he is totally focused on recovery and seeing when he can be ready," Pons told Spanish daily, Marca. "In principle it will be three to four weeks but we are going to try to reduce those deadlines, that's the big goal." sbobet 789

Salah has flown to Spain to undergo treatment, accompanied by doctors from both Liverpool and the Egyptian national team. The 25-year-old had to be substituted during the first half of Liverpool's defeat in Kiev after being pulled to the ground by Sergio Ramos.

He left the field in tears but appeared more optimistic on Sunday, when he wrote on Twitter: "It was a very tough night, but I'm a fighter. "Despite the odds, I'm confident that I'll be in Russia to make you all proud. Your love and support will give me the strength I need." sbobet 789
