Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is confident both he and his team-mates can improve as they try to move clear of the relegation zone.

The Cottagers remain bottom of the Premier League table following the derby defeat to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

Fulham have now lost eight of their last nine matches in all competitions and the pressure is on new boss Claudio Ranieri to turn their fortunes around after he replaced Slavisa Jokanovic as manager.

Mitrovic has been one of very few highlights for the club this season, with the Serbia international already scoring seven goals.

Despite the poor start, the former Newcastle man is adamant his form can improve and he believes the side can also find another gear over Christmas.

Mitrovic told Sky Sports: “I feel good at the moment, I feel really good on the pitch. I’m very happy that I am playing football in the Premier League and for my country as well.

“I’m enjoying my time here at Fulham and my time in this team. I think there is a lot more to come. I am still 24 so I have much space to improve.

“I try to learn every day and train as hard as I can. Sometimes, you have tough times when you don’t score goals, but the most important thing is to keep working hard.

“I believe in this team and this manager and this club and these fans. I feel really happy and I think there is a lot more to come from us. As time goes on, we will be better and better.”

Fulham take on Leicester on Wednesday night and Mitrovic to score first is available at odds of 6.50.
