Marco Silva believes his Fulham squad are “creating something really strong” after they beat Birmingham last night to go top of the Championship.

Fulham ran out 4-1 winners at St. Andrew’s, with Denis Odoi opening the scoring after just 10 minutes. Aleksandar Mitrovic then struck either side of Harry Wilson as Fulham leapfrogged West Brom and Bournemouth into first place.

“As a team we are creating something really strong between us, our dressing room as well, everyone is involved, the players that were here, the players that came in, some players trained today this morning in the training ground,” said Silva.

“Everyone is involved, it will be a big marathon for us, it will be a big fight to the end. Together we can be successful at the end of the season.”

There were a number of pleasing performances for Silva, not least from debutant Nathaniel Chalobah - who joined from Watford on transfer deadline day last month.

“He will be really important for us. He is a player I know very well, he signed with Watford when I was at that club,” said Silva. “We had a chance to have Chalobah with us as a free player. Having a player with his quality, what he can add to our squad, it was a fantastic moment for us to sign him.”
