Over 54 passes a game, 6 goals: The underrated Fulham star driving their play-off surge



Fulham are in great form once again at the moment and a play-off place come May is certainly in the offing at the moment.

The men from Craven Cottage have got a handy knack at the moment of making late runs from almost nowhere to get into the final shootout at the end of the campaign and they’ll be looking to do that once more.

Certainly, though, they’ll want to go up from the top six this season, though they’re not that far off an automatic spot right now either.

And, though Ryan Sessegnon and Tom Cairney will get much of the attention, our latest FLW Spotlight feature deserves plenty of credit too for what has been a good season from him – Stefan Johansen:

Indeed, though Cairney is the midfield star he has been injured quite a bit this year and it’s fallen to the likes of Johansen to be the driving force in the middle of the park.

He’s done that brilliantly, too, with him often setting the tempo with his passing – highlighted by a pass success rate that is close to 85%.

Goals have also been a big part of his game this year, as well, with half a dozen being notched and so it’s clear he’s having one of his best campaigns to date.

For sure, then, Ryan Sessegnon deserves plenty of the praise he gets but there can be no doubt Johansen is another vital cog in Fulham’s promotion challenge this season.
