Fulham completed a display of total dominance in their 4-0 win over Millwall at Craven Cottage last night. The Cottagers finished the game with a staggering 84.5% possession (The Telegraph).
Very few games at Championship level play out in a situation that resembles men against boys, but this was an exception.
Scott Parker’s team completely smashed the sorry Lions and on this form, they will take some stopping in their quest for promotion this season.
Fulham’s goals last night came courtesy of an Ivan Cavaleiro brace, Anthony Knockaert and an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty.
Amid a plethora of attacking talent, it is perhaps one of Fulham’s defensive performers who is pleasantly surprising supporters at the moment.
Stephen Sessegnon is the younger brother of Ryan who recently left Craven Cottage to join Tottenham. He has started the last two games at right-back and looked comfortable on both occasions.
Following the game he tweeted his delight at getting more minutes on the pitch and ultimately another three points:

Sessegnon has risen through the Fulham ranks and will hope to become a first-team regular this season.
Parker has trusted him to play in the early stages of the campaign and on current form he could become a permanent fixture in the team.
Following his latest display, supporters were keen to tweet Sessegnon to heap praise on the youngster.
Here is a selection of tweets regarding the performance of the 19-year-old:
Should be very proud of yourself, young man. Outstanding start to league career over last week. Ease with which you move into midfield and back to own position is fantastic

Best right back we’ve had in years. Look like you’ve been in the first team for the last five seasons.

Sessegnon appears to be playing Pep Guardiola’s version of full-back.
