Fulham manager Marco Silva insists he is not surprised that Aleksandar Mitrovic has started the season on fire.

There were doubts over whether the Serb was cut out for the Premier League but he has already scored three goals.

Mitrovic will look to continue his fine form when Fulham host high-flying Brighton tonight and Silva said: “It is a fantastic start for him at this level.

“I am not surprised, to be honest, because he has the quality to do it. I knew from the first day that if you play well, create chances and if you keep believing in his ability and capacity to score then he can prove that.

“It’s not a surprise for me, him or his team-mates. What’s important is what we know about each other inside our football club.”

Elsewhere, Fulham are hoping to complete more transfer deals before Thursday’s deadline.

A one-year deal for ex-Chelsea winger Willian is set to be completed.
