We're live from Slavisa Jokanovic's post-match press conference after today's 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

It was a tight first half but Ryan Sessegnon got the opener in the second period when he swept in a cross from the right in front of the Hammersmith End to send the biggest attendance of the season wild.

The coaching staff clashed on the bench in the first half in what was a tense affair in the battle for automatic promotion, with referee Mr Harrington having to separate the two.

A ludicrous 45-yard strike from Floyd Ayite then made it two and all but secured the points in an impressive win for Fulham, who now make it 10 unbeaten.

We'll have everything he has to say right here.

Top two will be a surprise

The season won’t be over after this week. We started the week well and it is our job we can be satisfied with the performance. We must be ready for our best performance. After this week arrives another week. I have only confidence for my team, I am not talking about the top or the play off because this is football and we must prepare ourselves for the next steps. For us, it is a big surprise if we finish in the top two.


Mitrovic played a very good game, he didn’t score today but his movement before the second goal was fantastic and he created the space for the goal. He showed quality and power and did a great job for us. He didn’t play for many months so we can bring him and get him in better shape and he can help us in the future.


We are satisfied with him and push forward and play harder to be a better player. We expect him to improve in the future. He is really talented and his mind is hectic and he tries to push himself, he is never satisfied. I cannot compare him.

Think about positive things

We play with confidence we lost a point against Bolton, a top team too, we cannot think the job is done, we are 5th in the Championship. We’re going to need all the squad, it’s not only players that started today. If we push altogether tin the same direction we can think about positive things.

We missed the third

Slavisa Jokanovic is here

We played good in the first half and then we try to show ambition to win the game. The first 45 minutes we didn’t find the way to connect with our fullbacks. in the second half we tried something different. We can score more goals, I moan about missing the second goal, today we missed the third.

Steve Bruce praises youngster

No Jokanovic yet but Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce has some high praise for Fulham.

“Fulham played very well today, especially Sessegnon. I’ve always said they’re a good side, they’ve got some good players. They’re one to beat.”

Slavisa Jokanovic

Standby as we wait for Slavisa Jokanovic to arrive at his post-match press conference. He must be very pleased with that second half performance, find out his thoughts on that and more very shortly.
