Fulham Back in Good Form
Could Fulham win promotion from the Championship yet again? The past two seasons they have spent in this division have both seen them go up via the play-offs. The problem is that even when spending lots of cash, their last two seasons in the Premier League have both ended in relegation.
Fulham host Hull City in their third Championship game of the season. They begin the weekend in second place, behind leaders West Bromwich Albion on goal difference? If those clubs stay in those positions until May 2022, it'll be the second season in a row the two automatic promotion spots go to sides relegated from the Premier League.
The Cottagers began their season with a 1-1 home draw against Middlesbrough. They took an early lead in that game but were pegged back for the stalemate. It's been going well for them in the Championship since then. They went to Huddersfield Town and came away with a 5-1 victory. Another win came in midweek when Fulham won 2-1 at Millwall. They got off to a great start in that match with goals from Mitrovic and Cavalho in the first eight minutes.
That's two goals apiece for Mitrovic and Cavalho. The same applies to both Harry Wilson and Ivan Cavaleiro, so they already have players in scoring form. It all shows the difference between the Premier League and the Championship. Mitrovic and Cavaleiro are already just one behind the number of league goals he scored last season, Cavalho has doubled his total from 2020/21.
Fulham will want to start winning at Craven Cottage. They struggled at home last season, so will want to get points at home to match their impressive away form. A bet on over 2.5 goals looks a good one to make here with Mitrovic and Cavaleiro anytime goal scorer bets as they look to continue their good scoring form.
Poor Start for City
Hull City were two leagues below Fulham last season. While Fulham were busy getting relegated, Hull were winning League One. They haven't made a good start on their return to the Championship after finishing bottom in the 2019/20 season. Their league campaign began well though as they went to Preston North End and won 4-1. However, Preston have lost all three of their league games this season, so not the greatest of scalps.
Results have dipped since then. League One Wigan Athletic went to Hull and knocked them out of the Carabao Cup on penalties. Hull City have had two home Championship games and not just lost them both but failed to get on the scoresheet. They lost 3-0 at home to QPR and then by a single goal to Derby County.
They certainly won't want a third successive league defeat. Scoring a goal would be handy after two blanks. This isn't going to be easy at all against a Fulham side that will have their confidence boosted. They've won two games in a row for the first time since July 2020 and will want to keep that run going. Back Fulham to get the win here and a bet on them winning to nil could also be a winning one.
