Predicted Fulham Lineup To Face Wolves In The EFL Championship
Fulham look to continue the run that has seen them be tipped for automatic promotion this year when they face the top of the table Wolverhampton Wanderers at Craven Cottage. Both teams only managed a draw in midweek, and both Jokanovic and Santo probably had one eye on this game, a clash between two of the best footballing sides in the second tier of English football.
Fulham have still not lost in the league in 2018 and will be disappointed that they only managed a draw against a tired Bristol City side. They will aim for much more at home against the league leaders, who are not playing to the best of their abilities. This will be a truly fascinating game.
Fulham have no injuries to deal with, as Tom Cairney and Sheyi Ojo are back to full fitness. Ryan Fredericks and Floyd Ayite will be pushing for recalls to the starting line up.
Probable Fulham XI
GK – Marcus Bettinelli
The Fulham goalkeeper was unlucky to concede a goal against Bristol City after keeping out Aston Villa so well in the previous game. He will have a lot on his plate this weekend.
RB – Ryan Fredericks
Cyrus Christie performed well against Bristol City but the Fulham youth product is at the heart of everything good about the way Fulham play.
CB – Tim Ream
The 30-year-old American will have to be on his toes this weekend but he is a confident player who can handle the pressure.
CB – Tomas Kalas
Denis Odi was brought in for the Bristol City game to counter a specific threat but he will likely take his place on the bench this weekend, with Kalas starting in central defence against Wolves.
LB – Matt Targett
Matt Targett now looks like a key element in the Fulham backline. He has settled incredibly well after only making 2 appearances in the first half of the season.
CM – Stefan Johansen
Played well against Bristol City and goes about his business on the left-hand side. He will have to do some defending in this game.
CM – Kevin McDonald
Doesn’t get the plaudits like his more illustrious colleagues but McDonald is the player who makes this team tick. He will have a lot of very talented players around him, so expect to see some crunching tackles.
CM – Tom Cairney
The talented Fulham midfielder will play in the Premier League next season for sure. He is a crucial presence for Fulham and is a sure starter.
RW – Floyd Ayite
Lucas Piazon will be the attacker to lose out on his place this weekend, as experienced attacker Floyd Ayite takes his place. I am sure he will have an impact from the bench.
ST – Aleksandar Mitrovic
After getting his first goal for Fulham, against Bristol City, Mitrovic will be hoping to get another one to show Tyneside what they are missing.
LW – Ryan Sessegnon
The talent of this 17-year-old is truly incredible. He is another sure starter for Fulham, especially in a big game like this one.
