Wolves vs Fulham
2017/18 EFL Championship
Date: Friday, 3rd November 2017, at 19:45 UK/20:45 CET
Fulham may have a good form on the road record but they can expect a tough test from the inform leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolves took an important victory in the midweek fixture. Norwich were their opponents but couldn’t prevent them from winning. Boly opened the score after 18 minutes. Usual suspect Leo Bonatini settled the game in the 72nd minute with his goal.
Fulham were hugely disappointing midweek. They played Bristol at home but nothing was in their favour that day. Cottagers conceded twice in the later stages of the second half. They tried to outdo the damage in the second half but Kamara left his team with 10 men after he saw the red card. Left with 10 men Fulham couldn’t do anything more and suffered a defeat.
Form and Tactical Analysis
Wolves are still topping the table. The team is in an outstanding home form. 3 straight home victories and just a single loss at home since the beginning of the season is the reason for their good position. The team is capable of outscoring any opponent but sometimes gets carried away and lets easy goals in.
Wolverhampton plays an aggressive 3-4-3 formation. They are sharp and pacey and like to attack.
Fulham is nowhere near where they want to be. Cottagers are on 15th place too far away from the play-off zone to have any chance unless they greatly improve and make incredible run of games. Their main problem seems to be the home form. Just 1 victory in 7 games coupled with a loss and 5 draws is their home record. On the road things are looking a bit better but still there’s a lot more room for improvement.
Fulham plays in a 4-3-3 formation favoring a sharp counter-attacking style. They struggle though when in need to be the creative side and control the game.
