Aston Villa

Jokanovic reveals Fulham approach to crunch clash with Aston Villa



Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic will be looking for his side to make it ten Championship games unbeaten when his side host Aston Villa on Saturday in the battle of the league’s two form sides.

Villa’s winning run, which currently stand at seven league matches, has propelled them in the automatic promotion spots while the Cottagers have risen up to fifth after putting their early-season inconsistency behind them.

Fulham’s passing game has taken a while to click both this season and last time around but both times it has, they have gone on a hot run of form – although tomorrow’s game will be a major test for Jokanovic’s players.

He has revealed how his side will approach the game, speaking to the Fulham official website, he said: “We are going to push strongly to put them under stress, to do damage to them, and win the game. All teams have weaknesses.

“We are under pressure to perform well and show our best performance in front of our supporters, and do everything to win three points.

“We are not under any pressure, they are under pressure. We are chasing them and the teams that are in front of us. They could be one of the rivals for an important target for us. We have the chance to win the three points.”

The Verdict

There is absolutely no point in Fulham doing anything other than persisting with the attractive, attacking football that has got them where they are now.

They are always better when they’re on the front foot. I’m going to sit on the fence for this one and say it’ll be a score draw.
