Fulham vs W Brom
Sky Bet Ch’ship
12:30pm Saturday 14th September
Fulham face West Brom at the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday. Coverage gets underway live on Sky Sports Football out of midday, while kick-off is at 12.30pm.
Fulham will be afterwards that he was sent off in the draw in Cardiff, so Stefan Johansen will come in the starting XI. Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is seeking to the successive match for club and country to score.
Unbeaten West Bromwich Albion will make a decision on Kieran Gibbs (groin) after his return to training. Kenneth Zohore may be brought in by boss Slaven Bilic up front. But Bilic says it is still too early for Egypt protector Ahmed Hegazi, who has not played since his surgery.
The winning start to life back in the next tier of fulham has come to a finish in recent weeks, with the Whites tasting success on 21 August, when they beat Millwall at Craven Cottage. Scott Parker’s side lost 2-1 to Nottingham Forest three days after. Before the international break, they drew 1-1 with Cardiff.
Though they’ve won three and pulled, the Baggies’ unbeaten launch has them sitting fourth in the Championship. After attractions with Derby and Reading last time out they beat Blackburn 3-2 in The Hawthorns.
Fulham boss Scott Parker:”Overall, after six games, we are pleased with the way it’s gone. This past year, we had been accustomed to matches that were losing and it became a bit of a habit, but we’re in a league in which we’re expected to do something. I am happy.
“I am fully conscious of West Brom’s quality, they’re a really good side who will surely be around. Like we do to every game, as we perceive that the challenge we’ve ready. They have been inside this division for 2 years now, therefore have come to grips with it. They’ve got some good players, encounter gamers, so we’re looking forward to it. I hope it is going to be an excellent game.”
West Brom boss Slaven Bilic:”This really is the most difficult game but it is not like so far we have not played good teams nonetheless. We have played some top teams such as Derby away and Forest away. Why is the Championship there is a interesting and large league it is pretty much and each game is a huge test for you personally, therefore that I don’t watch it any different.
“We can chat about Fulham, that last year they were at the Premier League, but they aren’t cruising. It is also a huge test for the players. They are decidedly among the favorites to go up. Significant club. We’re playing on their ground and it is going to be a enormous test for us.”
On paper, Fulham have among the greatest attacks. Mitrovic would still walk to a No 9 function at a reasonable few Premier League clubs, Anthony Knockaert and Tom Cairney would be the best players in the league final time they showcased in a complete campaign at this level and Ivan Cavaleiro was also a star actor for Wolves who held his own when called upon at the Premier League.
Having blown Millwall it seemed like they had the capacity but have stumbled against a 1-1 draw along with Nottingham Forest for an under-performing Cardiff. They have the capacity to place a few goals but there has been some suggestion that under Scott Parker they can be predictable.
Fulham are unbeaten in their last seven league matches against West Brom (W3 D4 L0), though this can be their first meeting since February 2014 at the Premier League.
West Brom are winless in each of the last 15 league trips to Fulham (W0 D6 L9) since winning 2-1 in October 1967.
Fulham have assembled 126 strings of 10 or more passes in open play this season – than any other Championship team.
West Bromwich Albion have won the most things from losing places in the Championship this season (11). The Baggies have gone behind in five of their six games and lost none (W3 D2 L0).
The two teams to complete the most prosperous moves in the opposition half this season are Fulham (1,347) and West Brom (1,308).
Grady Diangana’s three Championship targets this season are worth five points – no player has won additional points.
A couple of the best attacking units at the branch meet at Craven Cottage! Either side will approach every match this season with the intention and are going to have their sights set on automatic advertising.
Neither has experienced the beginning, and that’s to be expected following a change of supervisor for another and a relegation for one. I fancy objectives, but I can’t split the set.
David Prutton forecasts: 2-2 (11/1 with Sky Bet)
