Fulham secured their first three points of the Premier League season, and their first victory since being promoted from the Championship, when they defeated Burnley by a 4-2 scoreline at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
The top flight newcomers were scintillating in attack, with three summer signings scoring the goals – Aleksandar Mitrovic, Jean Michael Seri and Andre Schurrle.
Whilst Slavisa Jokanovic’s side clearly still have work to do to improve their defence, the club will be delighted to have registered their first win of the season. If Fulham can keep playing like they did on Sunday, retaining their top flight status for another season should prove to be no problem at all.
No one was more pleased with Fulham’s victory than the fans who packed the Cottage to the rafters. Fulham’s supporters created a brilliant atmosphere during the match and were quick to take to Twitter after the final whistle to celebrate the momentous result…
What a fantastic game & win. Loved that we spent most of the game on the attack. COYW!

I knew today was going to be a great day!! Fantastic and well deserved first Premier League win guys. @Andre_Schuerrle got the goal he was obviously hungry for. (my MOM) I hope @ThomasCairney injury not serious as he is the main cog of our team!! Onwards and upwards @Jokanovic

Excellent performance. For 70 minutes, Seri was fantastic, and I could see why Barca were interested. We played some quality football, mostly through him and Schurrle. Fosu-Mensah was great, Mitro was great- quality stuff. Still a little dodgy at the back though…
