Tom Cairney has won his first Man of the Match award of the season for his influential performance against Wigan Athletic.
Nobody saw more of the ball on Friday night than the Fulham captain, with his 89 touches featuring five key passes and six successful battles for possession, while maintaining a 92 per cent pass accuracy.
He only had two shots in the match, but the second was a beauty straight out of the Cairney handbook. Following excellent work by Anthony Knockaert, TC takes aim from distance and expertly dispatches a curling strike into the postage stamp. It was in from the moment it left his foot.
32.8 per cent of fans voted for Cairney as the Whites’ best performer on the night. Joe Bryan grabbed his first league goal for the Club and subsequently came in second with 20.2 per cent, ahead of the returning Stefan Johansen who claimed 14.6 per cent.
