Cottagers to continue European push
Friday night in the Premier League sees hosts Fulham take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Craven Cottage. Marco Silva's men edged out fellow European challengers Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, leapfrogging the Seagulls in the process and making sixth spot their own. Read our preview here:
Reed all about it
Silva masterminded that victory without talisman and top scorer Aleksandar Mitrović, a fact that is set to continue for this encounter as well. The versatile Bobby Decordova-Reid will deputise for the target man, dropping off the frontline to create space for the attacking midfield trio. Behind them, the pivots are well marshalled by João Palhinha and Harrison Reed, with the latter having only missed one league game to date, demonstrating the importance of consistent performers being available, even in less glamourous areas of the pitch.
A Mout point
Julen Lopetegui has also overseen an upward trend away from the bottom three, though scoring goals continues to be difficult for the visitors in old gold. Saša Kalajdžić has and remains out for quite some time, and has now been joined on the sidelines by Korean forward Hee-chan Hwang. The creative onus continues to fall on Portguese pair Rúben Neves and João Moutinho, though both have lamented seeing what they do conjure up be wasted more than often than not, especially in open play.
betway have odds of 2.30 for the Cottagers to continue their fine 2022/2023 with another win.
