Seri and Schurrle also strike as Cottagers get off the mark for 2018/19 with a 4-2 win against Burnley

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice as Fulham beat Burnley 4-2 for their first victory since returning to the Premier League.

A frantic first half began with Fulham taking the lead in the fourth minute, when Jean Michael Seri rifled a spectacular long-range effort beyond Joe Hart and into the top-right corner.

Jeff Hendrick equalised for Burnley six minutes later, finding the net at the second attempt after his initial effort was blocked by Denis Odoi.

Mitrovic scored twice in the space of three minutes near the end of the first half, heading in from crosses by Tom Cairney and Luciano Vietto.

Five minutes before the break, James Tarkowski scored following Ben Mee's header.

Andre Schurrle wrapped up Fulham's first points of the season, leaving Burnley on one point from three matches.
