Fulham’s predicted XI vs Burnley

Fulham face what could be a season-defining clash against Burnley on Wednesday evening, and to say that this is a must-win would be an understatement.

The Whites finally got back to winning ways against Everton over the weekend, and now they have a great opportunity to put together back to back wins for the first time this season.

A win here would see Fulham close the gap to Newcastle to just four points, and all of a sudden, things would really be looking up for the London outfit.

Of course, winning games is easier said than done, Fulham have only won three league matches all season.

If Scott Parker is to mastermind a victory here, he will have to get his team selection spot on, and with that in mind, we’ve had a go at predicting Fulham’s starting XI for this one.

We think that Parker will go unchanged for this one.

It’s not all that exciting to predict an unchanged XI, but as the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Fulham were in fine fettle against Everton, and they will be hoping to carry as much of that momentum forward as possible.

What is interesting to note is that this is once again a return to a back four, but with Bobby-Decordova-Reid on the pitch, this can quickly shift to be a back five if needed.

Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa interestingly remains on the bench, but you can’t argue with the double pivot of Mario Lemina and Harrison Reed continuing in the middle of the park after their incredible performance at the weekend.
