Fulham vs Sheffield United Lineups and Last Match

Fulham

On Monday night, Fulham suffered a 2-0 defeat at home against their local rivals Chelsea. The game was fairly closely fought throughout but two quick first-half goals for the visitors proved enough to decide the destination of all 3pts. Marco Silva could be without Adarabioyo, Traore and Tete for the game against Chelsea on Saturday due to injury.

Predicted Lineup – Leno (GK), Ream, Castagne, Diop, Robinson, Pereira, Palhinha, Reed, Wilson, Willian & Jiménez

Sheff Utd

The Blades have looked poor in most games so far this season which isn't too much of a surprise given the fact that they have lost many of their key players from last season and haven't invested much of that money into their replacements. Last time out, two goals from Bowen and Soucek saw Sheff Utd lose 2-0 at the London Stadium against West Ham, their sixth defeat in seven league games this season. Baldock, Osula, Norrington-Davies, Lowe, Osbrn, Fleck, Egan and Jebbison are the main injury concerns for the visitors this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Foderingham (GK), Robinson, Egan, Ahmedhodžić, Bogle, Thomas, Hamer, Souza, McAtee, McBurnie & Archer

Player to Watch: Tim Ream

Fulham haven't been as fluid or free-scoring as they were last season, instead relying on their defence to help grind out some of their early season results.

Veteran defender Tim Ream is the joint-top goalscorer for the club with 1-goal so far this season but it is at the back where the American is contributing the most. Fulham have kept three clean sheets in the league this season and a lot of that is down to Ream and his leadership at the back.

We're backing Ream to have another impressive game this weekend, keeping a clean sheet once again and leading his team to a narrow victory.
