Aleksandar Mitrovic

Fulham fans have been largely impressed by Aleksandar Mitrovic’s debut, after he joined them on loan from Newcastle United.

Mitrovic was signed by Fulham from Newcastle on deadline day, and Slavisa Jokanovic has wasted no time in giving the Serbian striker a chance at Craven Cottage.

Mitrovic played 35 minutes at the weekend, as Fulham picked up a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

And most Fulham fans have praised the impact that the Newcastle forward had.

Sections of Newcastle fans have been left frustrated with Mitrovic’s departure from St. James’ Park, as they felt he could still have had something to offer.

Newcastle have signed Islam Slimani on loan from Leicester City, but the Algerian is still not fit.

Aleksandar Mitrovic arrives prior to the Premier League match between Newcastle United and AFC Bournemouth at St. James Park on November 4, 2017 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

Rafael Benitez was, therefore, forced to pick Dwight Gayle and Ayoze Perez in Newcastle’s most recent game against Crystal Palace, but the pair both struggled.

Fulham, meanwhile, have been in excellent form of late - and their victory over Forest has moved them up to fifth place in the Championship table.
