Fulham vs Watford
KICK OFF: Saturday 22nd Sept 2018 | 13:30 CET
PREMIER LEAGUE WK6 | Craven Cottage
Can the Cottagers overcome high-flying Hornets in this potentially high-scoring encounter?
These two sides thrive on offensive football, which may result in goals galore in this fixture.
After the first two successive defeats in the top flight, Fulham got it together and went on to beat Burnley and draw at Brighton. The West London side is eager to re-establish themselves in the Premier League, and have the quality and the right mentality to do so. Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic, in particular, has hit the ground running with four goals in four games. A win at home against on-form Watford will boost belief.
Javi Garcia’s Watford are in cloud nine, having made their best-ever start in the Premier League with four wins from four games. The manager has warned his team not to get carried away and focus on each match as it comes. Pereyra and Deeney have been phenomenal in front of goal, but it is Holebas orchestrating the moves with four assists. With no signs of slowing down, Watford can fight for maximum points when they visit Fulham.
Both sides have the attacking quality so expect a high-scoring game.
