  1. Mitrovic offering more than goalspublished at 15:58 25 August

    Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is setting the pace in several stat categories for Premier League forwards this season.

    The Serbia international has three goals in as many league games, continuing the fine form that saw him fire 43 goals in the Championship last season.

    When analysing the Premier League's strikers, the 27-year-old ranks:

    • First for total shots this season

    • First for headed shots

    • First for aerial duels won

    • Second for touches in the opposition box

    Mitrovic is averaging five shots per match - a league high - while in winning 22 aerial battles he stands seven clear of nearest competitor Ivan Toney.

    Only Arsenal's Gabriel Jesus - on 29 - has had more than the 23 touches 'Mitro' has had in the opposition box.

    Many observers wondered if Mitrovic would be able to perform in the top tier. In three games he has matched his tally for the season when he last appeared in the Premier League and these supplementary stats point to a striker who is contributing in a mix of ways.

  2. 'Fulham's cup exit provides more questions than answers'published at 16:41 24 August

    Who would’ve predicted that Fulham’s first loss of the season would be against a League Two team ?

    After such a positive start to life back in the Premier League, including a win against their west London rivals Brentford, they were brought back down to earth at Broadfield Stadium.

    The headlines read 'Dumped out of the Cup' and 'The shock of the night' after their 2-0 defeat against struggling Crawley. 

    Manager Marco Silva said the home team simply wanted it more. And while he recognises it was a bad performance from his side, he says it doesn’t suggest a bad attitude from his players.

    For others though, it is a result and a performance (not one shot on target until the 92nd minute) that has raised concerns.

    Are some of the new players going to be good enough? Are the members of the squad who sense they aren’t going to be a major part of Fulham’s Premier League plans losing their motivation? And did Marco Silva use this match to demonstrate to the club’s owners that there is still plenty of work to be done before the transfer window shuts?

    You can listen to the latest instalment of Fulham's season with full commentary of Arsenal against the Cottagers on BBC Radio London Digital on 27 August at 17:30 BST.

  3. Arsenal v Fulham: Head-to-head recordpublished at 12:03 24 August

    Arsenal v Fulham 30 Premier League games - Arsenal 21 wins, 66 goals, 13 clean sheets; Fulham 3 wins, 22 goals and 3 clean sheets
    • Arsenal haven't lost any of their 30 home games against Fulham in all competitions.

    • Fulham have won just one of their past 15 Premier League matches against the Gunners - with that coming in January 2012 at Craven Cottage.

    • Arsenal are the only Premier League side with a 100% win record after three games. They have won their opening four matches of a top-flight season only four times before.

    • The Cottagers are still unbeaten in the league this season - and have only avoided defeat in their first four games of a top-flight campaign once, in 2010-11.

  4. 'From the first minute they wanted it more than us'published at 08:04 24 August

    Marco Silva says Crawley Town showed more desire than his side as Fulham were knocked out of the Carabao Cup.

    Silva, who made 10 changes for the trip to Broadfield Stadium, admitted his players were second best against the League Two side.

    "Congratulations to them, he said.

    "From the first minute they wanted it more than us and we lost a bit of control of the game and started to make some mistakes, then they scored and everything was more difficult for us.

    "I tried at half-time to change some things and we started the second half in the worst way possible.

    "These type of games you have to equalise with the same enthusiasm, the same intensity as our opponent. They wanted to match us and this is a normal situation.

    "We are not talking about the attitude of my players. Sometimes it's not always just everything about attitude, it's just to lead the game, to know what's happened, to make the best decisions, it's something we didn't do in the best way.

    "It was a bad performance, definitely, and of course the result as well. It puts us out of a competition that we wanted to win."

  5. 'We may have a gem on our hands'published at 12:52 23 August

    What a weekend!

    A 90th-minute winner from our main man Mitro, in the sunshine, to sink our noisy neighbours from Brentford.

    It was an end-to-end game that could have gone either way, but it was so sweet that Fulham were the ones that were able to steal the points.

    Not only did the win temporarily move us into the top four, but it ensured our best start to a Premier League season in 14 years, and it was the first time we've won a London derby in the top flight since 2014. The latter has been a particularly painful monkey on our backs, so it's great to shake that off.

    One player who particularly stood out on Saturday was Andreas Pereira. In his first couple of games against Liverpool and Wolves he lacked end product, despite displaying some fancy footwork.

    However, on Saturday, Andreas was the beating heart of our attack. His interception lead to our opening goal, and it was his wicked corner that Joao Palhinha headed in for our second. He was able to generate space out of thin air, breaking through Brentford's lines at ease.

    It's a tall order stepping into the boots of Fabio Carvalho, but if Pereira can keep putting in displays like we saw at the weekend, we may have a gem on our hands.

  6. Mitrovic back in Garth's team of the weekpublished at 09:28 23 August

    Garth's team of the week

    For the second time this season already, Aleksandar Mitrovic has made it into Garth Crooks' team of the week after heading the winner against Brentford.

    "I'm not entirely sure that Brentford's defeat against Fulham was an indication of how bad Manchester United were last week against the Bees or just how seriously we now have to take Fulham," said Garth.

    "Within a minute Brentford's impressive victory over United was starting to evaporate.

    "Mitrovic's movement throughout this match was as good as I've seen from the Serbia international. He looks fitter than I've seen him before and, in the form he is in, should have had a hat-trick. It's quite amazing the effect the Premier League can have on some players."

  9. Murphy hails 'brilliant start' for Fulhampublished at 09:39 22 August

    Danny Murphy praised Fulham's resilience after his former club responded to letting a two-goal lead slip against fierce rivals Brentford by finding a winner on Saturday.

    Aleksandar Mitrovic scored in the 90th minute to bag the Cottagers' first victory of the season and move them seventh with five points from their opening three games.

    "It's been a brilliant start," Murphy told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast. "It could have been even better if they'd scored the penalty against Wolves.

    "They showed great resilience with their desire to win after Brentford had come back and at times it was like a cup game."

    Mitrovic scored a record 43 goals in the Championship last season after a disappointing Premier League campaign in 2020-21 and Murphy believes he will be vital to their chances this season.

    "He looks fit, hungry and a real handful," he said. "Keeping him fit will be crucial. They play to his strengths and get lots of quality into the box."

  11. Fulham 3-2 Brentford: Analysispublished at 17:54 20 August

    Mantej Mann, BBC Sport

    Fulham had shown plenty of resilience since their return to the Premier League with two draws from their opening two games, but they now have the win their form has deserved.

    They flew out of the blocks against their west London rivals and took the lead as some fans were still making their way into the ground.

    Bobby Decordova-Reid's opener was followed by a thumping Joao Palhinha header as they doubled their advantage.

    Marco Silva will be disappointed at how his side allowed Brentford back into the game but that resilience was on full display again as the hosts wrestled back momentum before Aleksandar Mitrovic did what he does best with a towering header to secure all three points.

  12. Sutton's predictions: Fulham v Brentfordpublished at 18:24 19 August

    It's the third week of Chris Sutton predicting the Premier League results and he is hoping to earn his first win against Bad Boy Chiller Crew's GK after losses to Alistair Bruce-Ball and Serge Pizzorno.

    Sutton's predictions banner

    Sutton's prediction: 1-1

    I really like what Brentford are doing, and I almost made the prediction of the century when I said they would beat United 3-0 last week. I was so unlucky that they actually scored four.

    Fulham will have a real go at them, like they did against Liverpool in their last home game, so this is a much bigger test than United offered and it should be a good game.

    It will be close, too. The Cottagers have drawn both their games so far, and I can see the points being shared again.

    GK's prediction: 1-0

  13. Fulham v Brentford: Team newspublished at 17:05 19 August

    Andreas Pereira and Kristoffer Ajer

    Fulham head coach Marco Silva will be hoping Andreas Pereira can recover from a minor injury sustained last week.

    Harry Wilson and Manor Solomon are both ruled out with knee injuries, while Bobby Decordova-Reid is a fitness doubt.

    Brentford may be able to name Kristoffer Ajer and Sergio Canos in their squad for the first time this season.

    However, central defender Ethan Pinnock remains out with a knee problem.

    Who makes your Fulham XI?

    Would Ajer or Canos make your Brentford line-up?

  14. Silva on transfers and 'surprising' people by going for the winpublished at 14:57 19 August

    Marco Silva has been speaking to the media before Fulham face Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday.

    Here are the key lines from the Cottagers boss:

    • On incoming transfers, he has nothing "official" to report, but added: "Some things can happen quickly or not."

    • He feels Saturday's game will be one between two "confident" teams, adding that "a derby is always a special game".

    • He has no fresh injury concerns with his squad.

    • The Portuguese felt his side "surprised" people by going for a win against "one of the best teams in the world" in Liverpool on the opening weekend, but will do so again back at home on Saturday.

    • He confirmed that forward Rodrigo Muniz is on the verge of joining Middlesbrough on loan.
