Antonee Robinson notched a goal and an assist in Fulham’s record breaking win, while Pulisic rode the bench for Chelsea in a dismal draw that plunges the team closer to crisis.
Fulham 6 – 2 Birmingham
Antonee Robinson notched an assist and a goal for Fulham in their second 6-2 win in the space of four days, with Tim Ream also in the lineup as per usual.
The scoring frenzee started in the tenth minute as Marc Roberts turned the ball into his own net, which would have been tapped in by Neeskans Kebano. The advantage was doubled in the 35th minute in a nearly exact replica that fell to Kebano for an empty net tap in.
Robinson notched his assist just three minutes later as he got the ball out wide and crossed it on a dime to Fabio Carvalho for a glancing header to the back post in the 38th minute. Tom Cairney made it four as he picked up the ball at the top of the box and slotted past Neil Etheridge.
Ivan Sunjic pulled one back for Birmingham just before half time with a superb finish from outside the box, which rifled off the far post and in. Gary Gardner thought he had given Birmingham a lifeline with his 74th minute bullet past Marek Rodak, but Carvalho scored an equally powerful shot just 60 seconds later to restore the cushion.
Robinson capped off the scoring in the 93rd minute after scoring a screamer from outside the box. The win marks one of the biggest scoring accumulation in three games this season in The Championship, with Fulham having scored 19 goals in three games.
Fulham are now five points clear at the top of the Championship, but all eyes turn to their match against Stoke on Saturday.
