Video: Stefan Johansen Produces Superb Backheel Assist For Fulham Goal

Stefan Johansen produced a superb backheel assist for Ryan Sessegnon to score for Fulham today.

The Norwegian midfielder is continuing to shine in the English Championship after moving to Craven Cottage from Celtic at the start of last season.

He scored 13 goals in 40 appearances for them last term and has five in 29 this season already, but he contributes more in the build-up to goals for Fulham – and today was no different as they got a vital 2-1 win away at Derby.

Much has been made of Sessegnon this season, particularly with his recent run of form, scoring eight goals in 12 games going into today’s match.

But he’s got Johansen to thank for making it nine in 13 in the win over Derby, with the Norwegian producing a brilliant backheel assist to set it up:

That is naughty from the Celtic midfielder – and shows the kind of quality he’s got in his locker for Fulham.

With the win, the Cottagers are now up to fourth in the Championship table and there’s a real opportunity they could end up promoted at the end of the season.
