Fulham has the strongest tandem of footballers for a duel game that is especially appreciated in England, and Joao Palinha and Aleksandar Mitrovic are almost unbeatable when it comes to this category of football.
The Portuguese Palinha is literally like a tank and in the position of a defensive midfielder he has won as many as 108 direct duels with players from the Premier League.
Fulham played 13 games in the new season, one more than the rest of the English Premier League, but Palinja is unattainable at the top.
The Portuguese was bought this summer for £30m from Sporting Lisbon and has lived up to expectations so far.
Mitrovic is known to be one of the most robust strikers in England, and he continues to shine in the Fulham shirt and is second in the category of duels won with rivals, with exactly 99.
Last year he set an absolute record in the Championship according to the number of goals scored, he had 43, and he continued at an excellent pace in the Premier League.
So far he has scored 9 goals and is the third scorer in one of the strongest football leagues in the world.
In the Top-5 according to won duels in the Premier League, after Palinja and Mitrovic, Mohamed Salisu from Southampton follows with 98, Tomas Soucek from West Ham with 96 and Ben Mee from Brentford with 93.
