Harry Wilson starts: The predicted Fulham XI to face Reading this evening

Published

Fulham will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Championship this evening when they head to the Select Car Leasing Arena to face Reading.

Since securing a 4-1 victory over Barnsley in November, the Cottagers have only managed to accumulate four points in the second-tier from their last five league fixtures.

As a result of this dip in form, Fulham have been overtaken by Blackburn Rovers in the league standings.

Set to face a Reading side who will be determined to deliver a response to their shock FA Cup defeat to Kidderminster Harriers in tonight’s fixture, the Cottagers know that they will need to be at their best in order to secure a positive result on their travels.

After opting to rotate his squad for the club’s clash with Bristol City last weekend, it will be intriguing to see whether Marco Silva makes some significant alterations to his team today.

Here, we have decided to take a look at how Fulham could line up against Reading…

Having utilised the 4-2-3-1 formation on numerous occasions this season, Fulham are likely to deploy this particular system tonight.

Goalkeeper Marek Rodak is expected to return to the club’s starting eleven after being rested for the club’s cup clash with the Robins.

Tim Ream will also be recalled by Silva and will be determined to produce a positive performance alongside Tosin Adarabioyo in the heart of defence.

Antonee Robinson and Kenny Tete will feature in the full-back roles whilst Harrison Reed could be partnered in central-midfield by Tom Cairney who has made 10 appearances for Fulham in all competitions this season.

Fabio Carvalho is set to line up in a more advanced central role whilst Neeskens Kebano and Harry Wilson are both expected to regain their places in Fulham’s side.

Quiz: Can you name which club Fulham signed these 20 strikers from?

Who did Fulham sign Aleksandar Mitrovic from?

Wilson produced an impressive cameo display against the Robins as he scored the winning goal for his side in this particular clash.

The Wales international has now provided an impressive total of 14 direct goal contributions for Fulham this season and will be brimming with confidence heading into this evening’s fixture.

Having already scored 22 goals at this level during the current campaign, Aleksandar Mitrovic will fancy his chances of adding to this tally when he leads the line for Fulham as Reading have only managed to keep three clean-sheets at this level.
