Fulham 4 Burnley 2

The Clarets are still waiting for their first Premier League win of the season after leaking goals on a rain-drenched afternoon on the banks of the Thames. 

 Burnley’s last trip to London had seen them concede five goals in a dead rubber at Arsenal in May after European football had been secured and the Gunners were sending Arsene Wenger on his way.

 This was a far more intense affair as the Clarets played their part in a six-goal thriller.

 But it was another difficult afternoon for the defensive unit and those in front of them as Fulham’s big guns of Alexander Mitrovic and new signings Jean Michael Seri and Andre Schurrle shared the goals in an impressive performance from the home side.

 First-half replies from Jeff Hendrick, with his first goal of the season, and James Tarkowski kept Sean Dyche’s men in at the break as they trailed 3-2 in their eighth game in a month.

 But Slavisa Jokanovic’s expensively-assembled line-up had more to offer in the second half as they overan the Clarets to add a fourth goal late on and secure a deserved first win of the season.

 Following back-to-back defeats in their first two games, Fulham made five changes to their starting line-up, including the return of former Burnley midfielder Kevin McDonald and a Premier League debut in goal for ex-Accrington Stanley loanee Marcus Bettinelli.

 And the Londoners responded to a vibrant atmosphere inside Craven Cottage by taking the lead in an explosive start.

 Seri arrived as Fulham’s club record £25m signing as part of a summer spending spree following promotion from the Championship and the former Nice midfielder claimed his first goal in English football with a thumping 25-yarder which gave Joe Hart no chance.

Kevin McDonald played for Dundee as a youngster, looked like he could have had a good future ahead of him, did he not get the elbow from Burnley for going on the drink or something?

Oh dear. Watched the first half and gave up. It was 2AM.

Totally over run in midfield. Defence looks all over the place. At least we some how scored a couple of goals.

Going to be a long season I am afraid.
