3 in, 3 out: The Fulham XI that fans will surely want to see against Hull this weekend

Published

Fulham host Hull City in the Championship, as Scott Parker’s side look for a win to take them into the top-six.

Just a point and a place behind Bristol City in 6th, Fulham will want nothing less than a win at Craven Cottage tomorrow.

The visit of Hull will be another stern test for Scott Parker’s team, with the Tigers looking for a third-straight win in the Championship after a 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest, and a 2-0 win over Derby County.

Fulham though have lost just once in their last nine outings, and will be the favourites going into the weekend.

There’ll be plenty to ponder ahead of the game, and here we take a look at the likely eleven that Parker will field tomorrow:

With Marek Rodak suspended for the game tomorrow after seeing red against Middlesbrough last weekend, Marcus Bettinelli will start in goal for the Cottagers.

Fulham have fielded a 4-3-3 formation for their last few games, and Parker is likely to persists with it after the Luton win, and a credible 0-0 draw at Boro having played much of the game with ten-men.

Expect to see an unchanged back-four from the side that drew at the Riverside – Joe Bryan on the left, Dennis Odoi on the right, and Alfie Mawson with Tim Ream in the middle.

There could be a mix-up in the middle-three though.

Captain Tom Cairney will no doubt make up the left-side of that three, and Josh Onomah could make a consecutive start after being the man who Parker sacrificed in Rodak’s sending off last weekend.

Harrison Reed has been the usual holding midfielder, but we could see the more experience Harry Arter come into the middle for the visit of Hull.

Will Fulham beat Hull City this weekend?

Yes

Yes

No

No

His experiences at this level with Bournemouth has often been overlooked this season, but expect Parker to throw him in for this weekend to give his side that extra bit of steel in the middle.

The league’s top-scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic will surely keep his spot up top, with Ivan Cavaleiro on his right.

Bobby Reid started on the left against Boro, but with the Jamaican striker yet to get off the mark with Fulham, Parker could well drop him in place of Anthony Knockaert.
