Harry Wilson at Fulham: How’s it gone so far? What issues does he face? What’s next?

Published

Expectations were high when Fulham spent big to land the signature of Harry Wilson in the summer.

Wilson was never able to make an impact at Liverpool, embarking on loan spells away with Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and Cardiff.

Having dazzled in the Championship, it was Fulham who gave Wilson a fresh start in the summer, acquiring his signature for a reported £12m fee on a five-year deal.

It is fair to say that Wilson hasn’t failed to meet those expectations so far, with Fulham showing their promotion credentials…

How’s it gone so far?

Fulham have won only one of their last four games, but their start to life back in the Championship has been largely impressive.

Marco Silva’s side have yielded six wins from their first 11 matches, and currently occupy fifth spot in the Championship table.

Wilson has featured in eight of those matches, scoring three goals and chipping in with as many assists in a Fulham shirt.

Has Fulham's xG been higher on average than their opponent's during the 2021/22 campaign in all competitions?

He was sent off in only the second game of the season in a 5-1 win at Huddersfield, but has bounced back with some fabulous individual performances.

What issues does he face?

At the moment, Wilson doesn’t face any immediate issues. He is a key player for a team which are expected to be fighting for automatic promotion come the end of the season.

When he is at his best, he is undoubtedly one of the dangerous players at this level, and it is all about playing to his strengths.

But every successful team needs competition, and with Tom Cairney still waiting in the wings to return from injury.

They also have players like Ivan Cavaleiro and Rodrigo Muniz who can step in and do a job if Wilson isn’t performing to his standard.

What’s next?

Well, Fulham will be hoping to recover from a recent rut. Only four points have been picked up from their last four games, and they have tailed off slightly in the race for automatic promotion.

Wilson will be hoping to stay free from injuries and keep on performing to a level which we all expect him to perform to.
