Fulham Star

STAR MAN: MOUSSA DEMBELE

Dembele brings much-needed magic to this Fulham line-up – they’ll need his mazy runs and classy passing more than ever with Danny Murphy quitting for Blackburn

NEW HIT: MLADEN PETRIC

Hugo Rodallega’s arrival grabbed the headlines, but Petric has been rattling in the goals in pre-season. His acrobatic finishing could be key at The Cottage this season
