Known as the Jedi, Antonee Robinson plays for Premier League club Fulham and the United States national team.
A talented young player, he’s a perfect fit for both sides. However, it’s important for him to get some rest to avoid a serious ankle injury. Here’s a look at what Fulham’s options are at right back.
Antonee Robinson limped off in the 29th minute against Tottenham with an ankle injury. The Fulham left back is expected to miss at least four weeks.
Fulham played without him against Tottenham and Nottingham Forest. The left back was also unavailable for Fulham’s EFL Cup exit to Crawley Town in August.
If Antonee Robinson is out, Fulham could go with Kevin Mbabu at full-back. The team is in the middle of a competitive Championship and could play a big match against a rival.
The United States national team have a long-standing problem at left back. Robinson, who plays for Fulham in England, could be the answer to the problem.
With Antonee Robinson still a doubt, Tete’s position at right back is in doubt. Tete tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago. Robinson could start on the left flank.
Although Robinson’s injury is not serious, the U.S. squad lacks a reliable left back. The injury has made Robinson questionable for the immediate future.
