A short summary
Both sides came into the game without a single victory to their name this season. [team 10], however, were on back-to-back draws whereas [team 11] have drawn just one of their last five games. Fulham’s problem this season has been stopping goals and their backline at times has looked all over the place. [coach 153] gave the debut to [player 25284] with hopes of settling down the defense.
Fulham started the game well and dominated the ball as they like to do. [player 96804] was bossing the midfield with skipper [player 2285] making forward runs. The Baggies were struggling to cope up with the quick and penetrative ball movement. The deadlock was finally broken when [player 3140] headed the ball in the net after a [player 581067] cross was headed by Mitrovic. Just four minutes later [player 1956] combined with Mitrovic and scored an absolutely wonderful goal to double Fulham’s lead.
West Brom were consistently on the back foot struggling to recover the ball. Whenever they got possession it was all about [player 337588] and Pereira to create something on their own. Carlen Grant looked isolated and had no real service for the wings. However, Slaven Bilic’s side pushed towards the end but Fulham’s defending was rock-solid.
Too early in the season but the tie had a feeling of being a six-pointer. Fulham can now finally build on a win and more importantly a well deserved clean sheet.
Regardless of that wonder strike, Aina played a great game down the right-hand side. Made effective overlapping and underlapping runs and defended with ease. The 24-year-old blocked 1 shot and recorded 1 interception as well. He wasn’t dribbled past a single time in the whole game. Completed 2 long balls and won 3 duals. Aina also attempted 2 dribbles with both being impressively successful.
Andersen and Adarabioyo
The defensive performances since the start of the season have been dreadful. Continuous changes were made by Scott Parker to find the right pairing at the back. It looks like with new signing Andersen and Adarabioyo the manager has got two defenders who communicate and defend properly. The duo was not fancy against West Brom but a clean sheet seemed like a miracle for the home side. The partnership could be crucial for Fulham’s survival chances but they will have to keep them fit.
André-Frank Zambo Anguissa
In the midfield as well it seems like the perfect balance has been found by Scott Parker. Anguissa’s ball-carrying ability is sublime and against West Brom, he beat the press on various occasions. Recorded a passing accuracy of 81.3% by playing 3 long balls in the process. The 24-year-old completed an outstanding 6 dribbles as well. Anguissa defensively was also spot on with blocking 1 shot and registering 2 interceptions. He also won 3 tackles with 11 ground duals as well. His defensive reliability allowed Cairney to push forward and assist more in the final third.
