The omens are good seeing as we have never lost at home to Fulham in 30 meetings, however the Cottagers came within a whisker of changing that on their last visit back in April 2021 before Eddie Nketiah struck late to grab a draw.
That result was a big factor in their relegation that term, but they bounced back at the first attempt under Marco Silva as champions, and that momentum has continued into this season as they look to remain unbeaten in their first four games of a top-flight season for only the second time.
After being relegated in each of their last two Premier League campaigns, the Cottagers are determined not to complete an unwanted hat-trick this time around, and Silva’s summer recruits have already begun to make an impact.
The headline arrival is Joao Palhinha, and the £17 million defensive midfielder netted in the 3-2 win against Brentford last weekend, while full-back Kevin Mbabu assisted last season’s 43-goal hero Aleksandar Mitrovic for the late winner.
Bernt Leno made his debut in that game after departing Emirates Stadium, while former Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira also started, with Issa Diop making his bow in the Carabao Cup defeat to Crawley Town on Tuesday night – a huge shock given Fulham’s impressive start which has seen them draw against Liverpool and Wolves before beating their west London rivals.
