Fulham striker Mitrovic: I play in a team that plays for me

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic once again made the difference for his side today when the Serbia international scored a second-half equaliser to hand his side a hard-fought point against Watford in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Mitrovic has been in sensational form since moving to Fulham from Newcastle last January, scoring more goals than any other player in English football since making his debut for the Cottagers in February.

Speaking to Sky Sports after today’s game at Craven Cottage, Mitrovic admitted that he feels this Fulham side are set up to get the best out of him.

“It was a tough game, we didn’t go into the game as we wanted. We made a mistake and they punished us,” the 24-year-old said.

“In the second half we pressed well, kept the ball, created a lot of chances, we could’ve scored more.

“That’s football, we get a point, better than nothing but looking forward to the next game.

“I play in a good team who play for me. There are so many players around me who try to assist, we play attacking football.

“I am always close to the box, around the box which is where I like to be so I’m enjoying my time here.”
