Fulham 3-0 Brighton

Fulham Brighton Premier League

The Brazilian striker made it five goals in his last five games, and added an assist, as he continues to fill the Aleksandar Mitrovic-shaped hole left at the club.

Muniz’s time in West London has not always been this easy, with him arriving from Flamengo in 2021 as a 20-year-old who didn’t speak a word of English.

Not many would have tipped him for this epic resurgence considering he made just two league starts in his first season before being turfed out on loan to Middlesbrough.

Now he is outshining the Chelsea loanee Armando Broja who can’t get a look in and the injured Raul Jimenez who will struggle to win his place back when he is fit.

His assist for Harry Wilson’s 21st minute opener before he was on target himself on 32 minutes and Adama Traore wrapped things up on 91 minutes helped Fulham to make it three wins in their last four Prem games.

Broja will even cost the club £4million if he doesn’t make ten starts for them, but that is the price they’ll pay for Muniz’s glittering run.

Sasa Lukic is another player giving Marco Silva food for thought as he stood in once again for the suspended Joao Palhinha and set the tone with a WWE style tackle early on.

Tariq Lamptey looked lively for the visitors, twisting and turning beyond Antonee Robinson, but no one could make the crucial touch to his cross.

Brighton fans were boisterous, five sleeps away from their trip to Italy, chanting “football’s coming Rome, it’s coming Rome, it’s coming!”
