Huddersfield - Fulham
Today in Premier League Hudersfield play vs Fulham.
Slavisa Jokanovic has replaced Jose Mourinho as the most under-pressure manager in the Premier League but he can strengthen his position by leading Fulham to victory over Huddersfield at the John Smith s Stadium.After Fulham spent more than £100m on new signings in the summer there were high hopes that they could flourish in their first season back in the top flight.But they have picked up just five points, have by far the worst defensive record in the division. Fulham must improve defensively if they are to stand a chance of top-flight survival and there were encouraging signs on Thursday when they lost 2-0 at Manchester City in the fourth round of the EFL Cup. Huddersfield haven t scored in their last seven home league matches and a failure to net against Fulham would equal a record set by Manchester City when they failed to score in eight successive home league games between January and May 2007.It feels like a match where something has to give, with either Huddersfield scoring a home goal or Fulham keeping a first Premier League clean sheet of the season. Fulham s goals-conceded tally of 28 after ten games is the joint-highest in Premier League history alongside Barnsley (1997) and Southampton (2012). I expect a better game for Fulham.
