We were treated to a frantic and entertaining cup tie on Saturday, made all the better due to the fact both sides seem to be taking the tournament seriously this year. Marco Silva started a strong team, which included a first Fulham start for Manor Solomon, as the whites went toe to toe with a young and plucky Sunderland squad whose starting lineup contained just two players over the age of 22.
An Issa Diop mistake gifted Black Cats winger Clarke a goal to put Sunderland in the lead, before our man Tom Cairney waltzed past the Sunderland backline in the second half to salvage us a replay at the Stadium of Light. While Fulham will wonder how they failed to find a way past the outstanding Anthony Patterson during the dying stages, they will also know not to expect an easy night when they travel up to Sunderland for the replay.
Coops, Cam Ramsey, George Rossiter and Alex Irons dissect all of the weekend’s action, as Fulham’s dreams of an FA Cup run live on.
