Predicted Fulham Line-up To Face Brentford In The EFL Championship
Fulham are on an absolutely incredible run of form and have not lost in the league since the 16th of December 2017, which is just a remarkable run. They are now second in the Championship and will be really pushing for automatic promotion if the league was another four games longer.
They weren’t at their most convincing best against Reading and their in-form striker actually missed a lot of good chances. However, the victory is all that matters and they will be looking to gain another one against Brentford on Saturday.
Probable Fulham XI
Manager: Slavisa Jokanovic
Marcus Bettinelli (GK)
The 25-year-old English goalkeeper has been in good form for Fulham this season and had a solid performance against Reading, although he didn’t really have a save to make.
Matt Targett (LB)
Targett had a fantastic game against Reading last time out and got an assist for his team. He worked very hard up and down the left-hand side for Fulham.
Tim Ream (CB)
Ream was absolutely solid at the back for Fulham against Reading, much like he has been all season for the Cottagers. He will be looking to continue his form and grab another clean sheet against Brentford.
Denis Odoi (CB)
Denis Odoi had a good game against Reading and has been quality all season. Him and Tim Ream have had a great partnership at the back and will want to continue their form and get a fifth clean sheet in a row.
Ryan Fredericks (RB)
The 25-year-old has been excellent for Fulham all season and always looks good when attacking as well as defending.
Tom Cairney (CM)
Cairney wasn’t up to his usual standard against Reading and will be looking to improve against Brentford and get back to his rich vein of form.
Kevin McDonald (CM)
The 29-year-old looked good against Reading and won a lot of his aerial challenges. Will be looking to orchestrate the play in the middle of the park against Brentford.
Stefan Johansen (CM)
Another Fulham central midfielder in excellent form. He scored a good goal against Reading and will be looking to push on and get on the scoresheet again this weekend.
Lucas Piazon (RW)
Piazon is always a threat down the right-hand side and attacks by dribbling straight at the opposition. He has four goals and four assists this season and will be looking to grab a few more before the end.
Ryan Sessegnon (LW)
The most exciting young talent in the league, Sessegnon is an influential figure in the team and always has the ability to turn on the style and make a difference to his team.
Aleksander Mitrovic (ST)
Mitrovic didn’t grab a goal against Reading but still managed to impress for the Cottagers, winning nearly all of his aerial duels and having seven shots. He did miss a few good chances and definitely should’ve scored a couple but his hard work for the team still resulted in a win for his side.
