Nuno Espírito Santo and his men travel to Craven Cottage to face a Fulham side who are fighting for their life at the bottom of the table.

Last time out, the Midlands side tasted defeat at the hands of West Ham United, and will be looking to bounce back here.

Both sides come into this game in pretty poor form, as Fulham have only won one game in the last six, and Wolves are winless in five.

  • Fulham FC

Scott Parker’s men come into this game off the back of a poo performance against Aston Villa where they lost 3-1. 

In that game, Fulham did take the lead but their poor defensive display let them down as Dean Smith’s side scored three in the last fifteen minutes to secure all three points.

Fulham will be without Tom Cairney, who has missed 19 games now having been out with a knee injury since just after Christmas.

Also missing for Fulham will be Kevin McDonald and Alfie Mawson.

Predicted Line Up: Aerola, Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina, Reed, Lemina, Cavaleiro, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman, Mitrovic.

  • Wolverhampton Wanderers

As for Nuno’s men, changes have to be made after the awful first half display last time out against West Ham.

Having come off the bench and scoring, Fabio Silva is likely to start as his competition Willian José has struggled to adapt to life in England.

Daniel Podence, who played 45 minutes against West Ham could start at Craven Cottage despite not long returning from the sidelines.

As for absentees, Wolves will of course be without their main man Raúl Jimenez who is still out with a head injury picked up late last year.

Also on the sidelines is Jonny Otto, who has had a reoccurrence an ACL injury, which he has only just recovered from.

Predicted Line-Up: Patricio, Semedo, Coady, Saiss, Aït-Nouri, Neves, Dendonker, Neto, Podence, Traore, Silva.

  • Prediction

With both teams coming into this game without a win in a while, it could be a very cagey affair. 

Fulham will probably have the majority of the ball in the first half, while Wolves sit in and try and get through to half time.

If Fulham can’t break down Nuno’s side then Wolves will come out and start trying to control the game some more, and start creating chances through the likes of Adama Traore and Pedro Neto.

Score Prediction: Fulham 1-3 Wolves.
