Bobby De Cordova-Reid is pleased with his goalscoring form this season – and believes he can add to his tally in the coming weeks.
The Jamaican international opened the scoring in Fulham’s wins over Everton and Sheffield United and added two assists, which is an impressive return given that he hasn’t always started for Marco Silva this term. The Whites have struggled to find the net so far, scoring just nine times in eleven Premier League fixtures, and the versatile winger feels he can help ease the burden on the strikers.
De Cordova-Reid told the club’s official website:
“It’s a positive one for me. I’m always critical of myself, maybe I could have scored a few more goals, but I like to keep getting in the same areas, same positions, to get the chances, whether I score or not. I pride myself on scoring goals, and I think I’ve got more goals in me.”
De Cordova-Reid knows that Sunday’s trip to Villa Park to an Aston Villa side transformed over the past year by Unai Emery will be a stern test of Fulham’s desire to bounce back from the desolation of the late home defeat by Manchester United.
“A very tough match. We know how good they are, especially at home. The manager, since he’s been in, I think he’s got the best home record in the Premier League, so we understand it’s a tough place to go. We’ll respect them, but we’re going out to win the game. We’ll have a gameplan and play on their weaknesses, and hopefully with a bit of luck we’ll get the three points.”
