This was like the EFL Championship on steroids. Last year’s second-tier champions Fulham deserved their victory over the playoff winners, Nottingham Forest, after a three-goal burst in six second-half minutes. Forest lost a fourth successive Premier League game on the night Premier League football returned after the Queen’s death.
The fact Aleksandar Mitrovic did not celebrate his 28th birthday with a goal shows there is strength in depth behind Fulham’s feared No 9. These are worrying times for Forest, however, as they try to get their 22 summer signings to gel.
