Harry Arter has had a difficult season at Fulham. He started life at Carven Cottage incredibly well, earning rave reviews for his performances in the middle of the park.

Then things started to dip. Much of that was down to injury, with the Ireland international forced to sit on the sidelines due to a number of different ailments. When he was fit, he was often left on the bench.

Of course, there was also the famous Corbyn/Johnson Twitter incident.

Seemingly over his injury problems, Arter returned to the Fulham side for their FA Cup clash against Aston Villa this afternoon. The Championship side would pull off the shock against a fairly strong Villa side, running out 2-1 winners.

Arter scored the decisive goal in the 75th minute. He picked the ball up 25 yards from the opposition goal before unleashing a stunning, dipping strike with his left foot to find the top corner.

Arter currently finds himself down the pecking order in the Ireland midfield, with the likes of Alan Browne, Josh Cullen, Glenn Whelan all ahead of him.

Cullen is an injury doubt for the playoffs in March, meaning there is an avenue for the on-loan Bournemouth midfielder to play his way back into Mick McCarthy's plans. A few more moments of magic such as this one certainly wouldn't hurt.
