Some Fulham fans on social media have been raving over the performance of Kenny Tete against Burnley.
The Dutch full-back was tasked with the unenviable mission of dealing with Dwight McNeil at Turf Moor, but he did a stellar job of stopping the Burnley youngster.
McNeil is Burnley’s most creative outlet usually, but he had a very quiet game against Fulham, and that’s a testament to Tete’s ability to deal with him.
The ex-Lyon man made two tackles and one interception in what has to be described as a solid defensive performance.
Tete was also a threat going forward, putting in five crosses against Burnley, and while none of those led to a goal, it was great to see him getting into the right areas.
This was certainly a performance to build on for Tete, and if he can produce a similar showing against Sheffield United and Crystal Palace over the next fortnight, it will go a long way towards helping Fulham’s quest to escape the relegation zone.
Here’s what the Craven Cottage faithful have been saying on social media…
Tete is some player tbf

I’d say Reed was MOTM & Tete had a decent game but but of the rest were poor

Tete and Reed so far have been first-class. That’s about it.
