Peterborough vs Sheffield United QPR vs Reading Middlesbrough vs Coventry Luton vs Blackburn Hull vs Swansea

Fulham begin the Marco Silva era at home to Middlesborough and the Portuguese manager will be expected to challenge for promotion back to the Premier League. Boro have Niel Warnock at the helm and he has a great record for taking teams into the Premier League but Middlesbrough's frontline looks a little lightweight as things stand.

Fulham to Win

Fulham haven't lost any of their last five matches against Middlesbrough, picking up three wins and two draws, so you can see why we're backing the home side to secure all 3pts on Sunday. Fulham won their only pre-season game against Charlton 1-0 and have kept a lot of the squad that featured in the Premier League last season, while there are question marks over Middlesbrough's ability to score goals this season.

Under 2.5 Goals

We're expecting a close and competitive 90-minutes between these two former Premier League clubs and have backed under 2.5 goals to be scored. Five of the last six encounters between Fulham and Boro have produced under 2.5 goals, while five of Fulham's last six outings in all competitions have also witnessed fewer than three goals scored.

1-0 to Fulham

In terms of a final score for Sunday's clash, we're backing Fulham to secure a 1-0 victory in their own backyard. The host's last two wins against Boro have been via a 1-0 scoreline and their guests have failed to score in each of the duo's last three encounters. Fulham also won their one and only pre-season game 1-0 in late July, so you can see why we have backed Silva's men to secure another narrow victory this weekend.

Fulham will be aiming to get off to the perfect start against Boro

Fulham suffered relegation to the Championship after one season in the Premier League and after replacing Scot Parker with Marco Silva, the former Everton manager has been tasked with taking the London club straight back up this season. Getting a win in their first game and building a strong home record will be key to Fulham building up the moment and belief they need to return to the Premier League. Silva has a clean bill of health and no suspended players for Sunday's season opener.

Middlesbrough could be without both Anfernee Dijksteel and Marcus Browne for the trip to Craven Cottage due to injury, but the former is expected back very soon. Boro finished 10th last season and will be hoping to push for promotion under the guidance of Warnock. However, Akpom, Jones, Ikpeazu and Coburn are the only recognised strikers and neither scored into double figures last season, so scoring goals could be a serious issue for the club.
