Marco Silva has urged Fulham to set a new club-record Premier League points tally, following their impressive 5-3 win over Leicester.

Willian and Tom Cairney both bagged a brace at Craven Cottage, with Carlos Vinicius also on target, against the relegation-threatened Foxes.

Fulham now face Southampton, Crystal Palace and Manchester United to close out a remarkable Premier League return that began amid relegation predictions but will end in impressive mid-table security.

Fulham sit 10th, with 48 points, five shy of their current Premier League-high tally.

“We don’t hide that it’s our clear goal to achieve that,” said Whites boss Silva. “That points target would make the season even more brilliant.

“We really want to finish the season with a big stamp, and the stamp will be to get that certain amount of points, and we are going to fight for it.

“We will enjoy and embrace the challenge to achieve it.”
