Marco Silva's side were quick off the mark in Tuesday night's London derby thanks to an early strike from Mitrovic, who opened the scoring in the third minute thanks to great work from 18-year-old midfielder Fabio Carvalho.
Carvalho, who shone throughout the win, then made it 2-0 with just eight minutes on the clock as the away side continued to dominate.
Fulham continued to cause Millwall problems from attacking areas and, despite conceding a consolation goal from Benik Afobe in the 87th minute, the away side picked up a deserved victory.
After two wins from their opening three games, including an emphatic 5-1 win against Huddersfield on Saturday, The Cottagers now sit top of the Championship on goal difference thanks to goals from Mitrovic and Carvalho.
That man Mitrovic was also seen teasing a group of away fans, who had congregated around their team bus after the final whistle.

Fulham boss Marco Silva was delighted with the win on Tuesday night.
“I'm really pleased to see how we played, we deserved the three points. We were the best team on the pitch from the first minute to the last," he said.
“We were the dominant team, we dominated all the game. We didn’t even give them the chance in parts of the game to arrive in our box. We created so many chances that could’ve made it a different score. At 2-0 we had chances to score the third, fourth and the fifth.
“We knew how difficult it would be to play against Millwall with this crowd, the atmosphere and the way we play."
