Ryan Sessegnon made a piece of Premier League history at the weekend.
While Fulham’s struggles continued following a 4-2 loss to Cardiff City on Saturday, Ryan Sessegnon’s goal for The Cottagers saw him become the first player born in the year 2000 to score a Premier League goal.
The 18-year-old’s arrival in the Premier League has been subject to a lot of scrutiny following a breathtaking campaign for Fulham in 2017/18, and Sess’s first strike of the season has seen him deliver on the hype.
