Determined to make an appreciable impact in Fulham’s quest to avoid a drop this season, Super Eagles left full-back, Ola Aina is looking forward to The Cottagers’ first EPL win this weekend.
Fulham host their London neighbors Crystal Palace at Craven Cottage on Saturday and Aina has tasked his teammates to be on their guards against Palace’s counter-attacking style of football.
The former Torino loanee believes Palace attacking prowess poses big threats to Fulham’s quest to record their first major win of the season having picked just one point from five matches.

“I think Palace are a very good side especially on the counter-attack, they’ve got exciting players, quick players, skillful players and it’s a challenge that all of us should be looking forward to.
“If we work hard and we work how we’ve been working throughout the week and for our other games, I think we should be okay.” he told fulhamfc.com
