Superb Aleksandar Mitrovic goal helps topple leaders – Makes it two in two

Aleksandar Mitrovic is certainly hitting his stride now.

Rafa Benitez had refused to select the striker for a league match in nine months, so it had become an impossible situation for the Serbian striker.

A loan move to Fulham was agreed for the rest of the season and he is really reaping the benefits as he nears full fitness.

Mitrovic lasted the full game this Saturday teatime but his contribution overall was excellent.

Scoring in a 1-1 midweek draw at Bristol City, that followed an excellent display in the 2-0 win over in-form Aston Villa.

However, it was definitely cherry on top of the cake today, as a win over Wolves, who until recently had looked as though they were running away with the Championship, puts Fulham only five points off the automatic promotion places and seven points clear in terms of the play-off places.

Ryan Sessegnon put Fulham ahead today, then a superb Aleksandar Mitrovic goal (see below) made the game safe.

BBC Sport:

β€˜An eighth-straight home win is very much on the cards for Fulham now.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has plenty to do when he receives the ball but he shows great strength to hold off and escape the clutches of Conor Coady.

Before drilling a low shot from 20 yards past the despairing dive of John Ruddy.’
