MATCH PREVIEW: FULHAM (A)

27 December 2018

Sponsored by

Huddersfield Town will make the trip to London this weekend as David Wagner’s side face Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday 29 December; 3pm kick-off.

The Head Coach will be hoping his players can secure three points against Fulham after suffering a 3-1 defeat away to Manchester United on Boxing Day.

Fulham currently sit 19th in the Premier League table, just the one point and place ahead of Town.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a 1-1 home draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Ranieri replaced Slaviša Jokanović as Fulham boss on 14 November 2018 and the Italian oversaw a 3-2 win over Southampton in his first game in charge of the West London side.

The last time Town clinched all three points at Craven Cottage was back in 1993, with the last six fixtures seeing Fulham secure four wins and two draws between the sides.

KEY PLAYERS - FPL FORM

Sergio Rico - 3.0

Sergio Rico is currently on loan at Fulham from Sevilla. The Spanish goalkeeper has made 10 appearances in the Premier League for the Cottagers, keeping just the one clean sheet. The 25-year-old’s one appearance for his country came on 1 June 2016.

Aboubakar Kamara - 3.0

Aboubakar Kamara began his professional career with AS Monaco before joining Belgian side K.V. Kortrijk in 2015. A move to Amiens SC followed before the Frenchman signed for Fulham on a four-year deal in July 2017. The 23-year-old has scored 11 goals since making the move to England, including two goals in the current Premier League campaign.

Aleksandar Mitrović - 2.3

Aleksandar Mitrović initially joined Fulham on a loan deal before the move was made permanent in July 2018. The Serbian international played a significant role in Fulham’s promotion back to the Premier League, grabbing 12 goals in 20 games whilst on loan. Mitrović is a powerful striker and the 24-year-old has found the net seven times in the Premier League this season.
