2 tweaks Marco Silva could make to the Fulham XI to face Swansea City tomorrow

Published

Fulham will be determined to get back to winning ways in the Championship tomorrow when they host Swansea City at Craven Cottage.

Marco Silva’s side were forced to settle for a point in their clash with Bristol City last weekend as Aleksandar Mitrovic’s header was cancelled out by Kasey Palmer’s late strike.

As a result of this draw, Fulham lost ground on league leaders AFC Bournemouth.

Currently four points behind the Cherries, the Cottagers will determined to close this particular gap by sealing victory in-front of their own supporters on Wednesday.

Whilst Fulham did show glimpses of promise against the Robins, Silva may decide to make some alterations to his team for tomorrow’s showdown.

Here, we take a look at TWO tweaks that the Fulham manager could make to his starting eleven…

Ivan Cavaleiro is given the chance to impress

After being utilised as a substitute by Silva in last Saturday’s meeting with the Robins, Ivan Cavaleiro may be given the opportunity to showcase his talent tomorrow.

Certainly no stranger to life in the Championship, the winger knows exactly what it takes to thrive at this level as he has provided 46 direct goal contributions in 126 games in this division.

Particularly impressive during Fulham’s 5-1 victory over Huddersfield Town last month, Cavaleiro managed to net a brace at the John Smith’s Stadium as he registered a WhoScored match rating of 8.11.

What nationality is Gordon Davies?

If the winger is able to replicate this display against Swansea, he could help his side get back on track in the second-tier.

Harrison Reed returns to Fulham’s starting eleven

After missing Fulham’s defeat to Reading earlier this month due to a minor injury, Harrison Reed made his return to league action against the Robins as he was introduced as a substitute in the second-half of this fixture.

If Silva is looking to freshen up his options in the heart of midfield, Reed may be handed the opportunity to make his second Championship start of the season.

Particularly impressive against Birmingham City last month, the midfielder completed 29 passes and provided two accurate crosses as he registered a WhoScored match rating of 6.80.

By producing an encouraging display against Swansea, Reed may potentially force the likes of Nathaniel Chalobah and Jean Michael Seri to step up their performance levels which could have a positive impact on Fulham’s fortunes in the Championship.
