Sheyi Ojo has been involved in Fulham’s last four games, which have all been wins, after returning from a leg injury.
Fulham are in the midst of a 15 game unbeaten league run which has seen them beat the top sides in the division such as Wolves, Cardiff and Aston Villa.
The Liverpool loanee has missed a substantial part of that due to his injury, but he has been involved in the last four games. These matches were all wins, although, Ojo only started the game against Sheffield United.
Ojo has impressed in his loan spell with Fulham with four goals and two assists in 20 appearances which is sure to have caught Jurgen Klopp’s eye considering the high technical level that Slavisa Jokanovic has got his team playing at.
His performances have under the radar generally, though, because of 17-year-old Ryan Sessegnon who is the hot prospect in the team as well as one of the key players.
Here’s what Ojo had to say to the official Fulham site: “It’s been a difficult time for me, being injured for so long, but I’m happy to be back and playing now.”
“I’d like to be playing more but I’ve got to be patient and hopefully I’ll start to get more game time.”
“It’s been a tough spell for us. We played a lot of great teams but we’ve come through it really well. We haven’t lost in 15 games, we’re in good form now so we’ve got it keep it up.”
Ojo has took his chances in the first-team well and is clearly making the most of his loan spell.
Liverpool have one of the strongest forward lines in world football, so he is unlikely to get many chances when he returns to Liverpool at the end of the season. Therefore, the big question is whether he will go on another loan spell and will be that be with the Cottagers.
Jokanovic is doing a brilliant job and it’s even more impressive considering the young players that he has fitted into the team because they are significantly contributing as well. His ability to rotate effectively without it coming at the expense of results is ensuring that his team is fresh which has allowed them to go on this remarkable run.
