Despite no teams winning both their matches after just two Championship game weeks, Fulham sit top of the pile thanks to a convincing 5-1 success over Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.
Marco Silva’s side needed to get over the disappointment of falling to a 1-1 opening day draw with Middlesbrough at Craven Cottage and they did it in some style in Yorkshire – even if there was some fortune in the way that Aleksandar Mitrovic opened the scoring for the Cottagers.
Further first half goals from Josh Onomah and Fabio Carvalho plus a brace from Ivan Cavaleiro saw the London side end up trouncing the Terriers on their own soil.
They have another away trip to contend with this evening, only the journey is slightly shorter as Fulham cross the River Thames to face Millwall, who have drawn both their league games this season so far.

Sky Sports’ EFL presenter David Prutton doesn’t believe that Gary Rowett’s side are going to get a point from this one though as he is predicting a 2-1 win for Silva’s outfit at The Den.
“Two games in and two draws for Millwall. It has been a steady enough start for Gary Rowett and his men. But now they face their biggest challenge yet,” Prutton wrote in his Sky Sports predictions column.
“Fulham were excellent at Huddersfield on Saturday. It doesn’t look like goals or chances will be in short supply this season, although a trip across London to The Den is a real test for them, but one I think they can take all three points from.”
After such a dominant victory against what has to be described as a pretty poor Huddersfield team, Fulham’s confidence will be high going into this one.
But it’ll be a tougher test against a Millwall side who are usually defensively solid, but a battle against the likes of Jake Cooper and Shaun Hutchinson is one that Mitrovic will relish.
Harry Wilson will be a big miss for the Cottagers though and with the Lions being a very physical team it could be a bit of a rough evening for teenager Fabio Carvalho, who may come up against Maikel Kieftenbeld and George Evans who won’t give him an easy time of things.
Millwall already have two draws to their name this season and I can see a third one coming here.
