- Fulham star in makeshift sling
- Defender has been fantastic for club this season
WHAT HAPPENED? The Fulham defender was removed from the game in the 22nd minute after suffering what appeared to be a serious arm injury. Ream landed awkwardly after a collision with Manchester City forward Julian Alvarez and left the pitch with his arm in a makeshift sling.

WHAT WAS SAID: “They are both in hospital. They both look serious injuries,” Silva said of Ream and Andreas Pereira, who also exited the match on a stretcher. “Tim Ream looks like a fracture in his arm. Let’s wait to see if it’s not serious with Andreas.”
Silva went on to add that it "looked clear Tim Ream will not play for us this season".
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ream has been one of the best defenders in the Premier League this season, as well as arguably the best American playing in Europe. He's been a mainstay for Fulham this season, with the club currently midtable and safe from relegation.
With the USMNT, Ream was a key piece at the World Cup in Qatar and is expected to play at either the Gold Cup or Nations League this summer. However, this injury could derail those plans entirely.
