“He was outside this morning doing some work, getting better, but he is still a doubt for the match,” Silva said. “Again, we have to assess him tomorrow, do what we should do with him, and take the decision for the match.
“It's not something really serious. Let's see if he can be ready for Sunday against West Ham. He will be ready for AFC Bournemouth for sure, we hope, and let's see if he can be ready or not for West Ham.”
The West Ham forward made his second start of the season in GW9 and returned eight points thanks to a goal and two bonus points. With nice fixtures and an ownership of just 0.7 per cent, he could be a good differential.
With Mitrovic facing a late check, I'll likely hold as Fulham's fixtures look good moving forward and he's their talisman.
If you want to replace him and are strapped for cash, consider Danny Welbeck (£6.5m). He's been quoted in the press as "excited" to be playing under new head coach Roberto De Zerbi - and the Italian got a lot out of his No 9s at previous clubs. It's a bit of a gamble with Brighton & Hove Albion's fixtures, but keep an eye on him.
It is hard to know what to do with the forward. If he is out for more than a week, Callum Wilson (£7.2m) looks the standout replacement. He's scored three in four appearances for Newcastle United and when fit he guarantees goals.
This is all about time, which sadly we don't always have. Wilson and Welbeck are both on my radar but, with two free transfers, I will even consider moving him down to bench fodder to boost my midfield. However, this is not ideal, with Blank Gameweek 12 on the horizon.
With Mitrovic's injury looking short term, Fantasy managers should consider benching him for a week if possible.
If you need a guaranteed starter for this week, Wilson is the best dependable option for a similar budget. At the lower end, Dominic Solanke (£5.7m) still appeals for his price, fixtures and the fact that he's on penalties.
Other left-field options include Scamacca, Welbeck, Anthony Martial (£6.9m), Patson Daka (£5.7m) and Ollie Watkins (£7.2m).
I prefer to keep him, with AFC Bournemouth at home in Gameweek 11. But if managers want to make the change, I like Wilson. When he's fit, he scores goals.
