Fulham stormed to a sensational 7-0 win over Blackburn last night and four different players all managed to get their name on the scoresheet.
One of those was Aleksandar Mitrovic, the highest goalscorer at both his club and in the entire league. With 19 goals and five assists so far this year in just 16 games, he has proven to be a force to be reckoned with in the Championship.
Last night though, the player did more assisting than he did goalscoring.
The 27-year-old did find the net once but he bagged more assists then goals last night, teeing up his teammates twice against Blackburn.

Now, the player’s teammate Tim Ream has taken to Instagram to post about the Serbian and has made a cheeky comment about the striker only finding the net once during the fixture.

Ream jokily claimed it was ‘about time’ the striker let some other players score for the club – although the defender will certainly not one the attacker to seriously stop banging in the goals anytime soon.
Last night though, the goals were spread out with Neeskens Kebano notching two, Harry Wilson finding the back of the net twice and substitute Rodrigo Muniz also getting two.
If Mitrovic can keep on finding the back of the net on a regular basis and his teammates can also continue to keep chipping in with goals alongside him, then Fulham will be hard to stop in the Championship this season.
Aleksandar Mitrovic is easily one of the best, if not the best, players in the Championship. His goalscoring antics, workrate up front and ability to manhandle opposition defences has helped his side battle at the top end of the table so far this year.
The attacker shows no signs of slowing down either. If his teammates can all contribute effectively too as they did last night, then they are surefire favourites for a promotion back to the Premier League this season.
