This Saturday, in their last Premier League fixture before the Christmas festivities begin, Fulham take on Newcastle, at St James Park.

The long trek is one that the hardy travelling army might not appreciate so close to Christmas, but it is a trek that must be done.

Perched high up, among the gods, in the away end, the travelling support will be hoping that game eighteen of the Premier League season will see Fulham win only their third game of the season.

A rare win could also see Fulham climb off the bottom of the table if the other results elsewhere are favourable.

But, as we start to contemplate this epic trip, who could be the hero that provides the catalyst that launches our rise up the table?

Look no further than Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Serbian striker will arrive on Tyneside as a man on a mission.

Derided by Rafael Benitez as not being capable of producing the goals his side needed, Mitrovic was, first, loaned to Fulham last season, before becoming a permanent fixture at Craven Cottage in the summer.

The game is littered with players returning to their former clubs and scoring and Saturday is the perfect opportunity for Mitrovic to do just that and stick two fingers up at those who didn’t rate him.

If the above does happen, it’ll be interesting to see how Mitrovic celebrates the goal.

Will we see scenes of unbridled celebration or will it be a muted celebration out of respect for the Newcastle fans who he once played for?

Interesting times ahead.
