LONDON: Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrović is confident he can prove himself in the Premier League and emulate his goal-scoring form from the Championship last season.

The 23-year-old completed a permanent move to Fulham in July after an impressive loan spell at Craven Cottage last campaign, where he scored 12 goals in 17 Championship matches to help the team gain promotion to the top flight.

“I know it is going to be hard,” Mitrović told The Telegraph. “It is a better league with much more quality. But I know I have the ability, I have the quality.”

“I want to show everybody that I can play in the best league in the world and score goals. Goals are like an addiction. When you score you want more and more.”

Fulham fell to a 2-0 defeat by Crystal Palace in their opening league fixture last weekend and the Serbian will have a chance to get off the mark when the promoted team travel to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
