Aleksandar Mitrovic has had an excellent start to the season with Fulham after his £27m move to London in the summer.

He followed his goal against Tottenham with a brace versus Burnley on Sunday to make it three goals from three Premier League starts.

When I polled fans whether they thought selling the 23-year-old was a mistake, a sizeable majority thought that it was:

There’s no point looking back at what might have been. Sometimes, things just don’t work out between managers and players. Rafa clearly didn’t trust Mitro enough to be a regular starter, and while I personally would have persisted with the forward, the manager clearly felt that he wasn’t going to fit into his plans.

The Serbian has found a coach in Slavisa Jokanovic who can play to his strengths, and so far it is bearing fruit. We are yet to see, however, how he will do over the course of a full Premier League season.
