What Trueform says for Huddersfield vs Fulham
Huddersfield and Fulham are both struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League table and that could lead to a tense affair at John Smith’s Stadium.
The Cottagers desperately need to tighten up at the back after leaking goals aplenty, but then the Terriers have yet to score in five home matches this term.
We’re happy to side with 23/10 for a stalemate when they get together for our initial Huddersfield vs Fulham prediction.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield slipped to bottom spot following a 3-0 defeat at Watford which left them with just one point from their last six games.
Town had previously shown encouraging signs in a 1-1 draw at Burnley and only went down 1-0 at home to Liverpool, but David Wagner took few positives from the latest display.
He said: “If you perform on a high level consistently, you will get points and wins, but we didn’t perform on that level at all.
“I think we have to give credit to Watford, they are a quality side with quality individuals and full of confidence at the moment, but individually we were not on our standard in too many positions.”
With successive home games against Fulham and West Ham to come before the next international break, Wagner will be determined to get a response from his team.
Last Huddersfield line-up: Lossl, Lowe, Jorgensen, Schindler, Durm, Hogg, Billing, Mooy, Mbenza, Pritchard, Depoitre.
Terence Kongolo (hamstring) and Tommy Smith (knee), both missing for the last three games, have been back in training, as have Rajiv van La Parra and Abdelhamid Sabiri after illness.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Fulham were left just two places and the same number of points above Huddersfield following a 3-0 home loss to Bournemouth, their fourth straight Premier League defeat.
With 15 goals conceded in those games, the Cottagers have let in the division’s worst total of 28.
“Once more the opponent scored easy goals against us,” moaned Slavisa Jokanovic. “I miss the power, strength, speed.
“This is the Premier League, everything is faster, more power, more strength, we need to adapt ourselves for this situation.
“We move around, but we were one step behind them and they were more strong and faster and the result is fair.”
Fulham must hope that Aleksandar Mitrovic can rediscover the touch which saw him hit five goals in the club’s first six top-flight fixtures.
The 24-year-old has been out of luck for the Cottagers since but did bag a brace in Serbia’s 2-0 Nations League triumph over Montenegro last month.
Mitrovic appeals at 11/2 to break the deadlock to complete our Huddersfield vs Fulham betting tips.
Last Fulham line-up: Rico, Odoi, Ream, Le Marchand, Fosu-Mensah, Sessegnon, McDonald, Schurrle, Jean Seri, Mitrovic, Kamara.
Kevin McDonald is back in contention after missing Thursday’s Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester City due to suspension, but defender Joe Bryan remains unavailable because of a hamstring injury.
Watford 3-0 HUDDERSFIELD
