Huddersfield v Fulham tips: Can hosts get their first win?
Monday Night Football comes from the bottom of the Premier League tonight as Huddersfield Town host Fulham.
The two teams occupy the bottom two spots in the table, and both will see this as huge opportunity for a rare win. Huddersfield are winless while Fulham have won just once.
It’s an intriguing match-up with David Wagner’s hosts the lowest scorers in the league (they haven’t scored at home yet), while Fulham have conceded more goals than anyone else.
So which way might this one go? Here’s all the pre-match key info you need…
Despite their winless run thus far, Huddersfield are favourites this evening at 13/10.
Huddersfield’s chances could be significantly boosted by the return of numerous key players. Terence Kongolo, Tommy Smith, Rajiv van la Parra and Abdelhamid Sabiri could all return tonight.
Wagner has largely opted for 5-4-1 and 3-5-2 this season, but with tonight a must-win, the Huddersfield boss is likely to opt for the latter.
That should mean Laurent Depoitre and Alex Pritchard share the forward roles up front, although Steve Mounie could feature too should Wagner want to add a physical presence.
Jokanovic’s insistence to keep playing open, attacking football has cost them points, but he’s unlikely to change that tonight.
The London side could go 4-3-3 in a bid to counter, with Aleksandar Mitrovic flanked by Andre Schurrle and either Ryan Sessegnon or Luciano Vietto up front.
Mitrovic will fancy his chances of hustling the Huddersfield defence this evening. The Serbian is 11/2 to bag the opening goal, having already netted five times this term.
And should the hosts bag their first home goal of the campaign, our traders say it will be either Depoitre or Mounie, with the pair sharing first goalscorer favouritism at 5/1.
