Fulham will look to establish their goalscoring prowess back in the English top flight after winning the Championship last season in a runaway manner.
As the London club yo-yos back and forth to the Premier League, there are a number of concerns regarding the club’s defense as a result.
During their 46 league matches last season, they scored an incredible 106 goals, with striker Aleksandar Mitrovic setting a Championship record with 43 goals, which was the third highest total in league history. In spite of this, the backline was a major issue down the stretch and gave fans flashbacks to their past two Premier League campaigns, which have both been calamitous from the back.
For five consecutive seasons, Fulham has been on the pendulum between the Premier League and the Championship, progressing up or slipping down in the league with each successive season. For the first time since 2012/13, when relegation ended their 13-year association with the top flight, the club will attempt to finish above the bottom three in the Premier League for the first time since then.

FA Cup, and Carabao Cup participation for Fulham
As a result of last season’s domestic cup competitions, Fulham lost to Premier League opponents in both ties.
Early in October, they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the third round by Leeds United after being defeated on penalties at home. Unlike previous years, this year’s competition kicks off sooner, with Fulham participating in the second round of the competition, which will take place in late August period.
As predicted, Manchester City presented Fulham with a challenging FA Cup draw last year, which eventually resulted in Fulham losing by a score of 4-1 in January. With Fulham entering the FA Cup in the third round of the competition, which will take place in January of next year, the FA Cup will return in early November this coming season.

Fulham Premier League projection & odds
As one of the newly promoted Premier League teams, Fulham’s odds reflect the fact that they are a newly promoted team. Since Fulham’s last two games in the English top flight didn’t end well for the Whites, the oddsmakers are giving the Whites little chance of staying up this season.
On Sports Interaction (in Canada), Mitrovic is given a shout for the league’s top goalscorer at +3320, but the outlook for the club is grim.

Here is a list of Fulham best and worst finishes in the Premier League
Fulham finished seventh in the 2008/09 season, their best finish since 2001/02. The club’s league finish in the 2007-2008 season was crucial to the club’s history, as it qualified them to compete in the UEFA Europa League, where they eventually made it all the way to the final and were just one goal away from lifting the trophy with an extra-time goal from Diego Forlan.
With seven goals each, Clint Dempsey and Andy Johnson were the team’s top scorers during that season, as they shared the Premier League top-scorer’s award. Among the highlights of the season were victories against Arsenal and Tottenham at home as well as victories over both Manchester clubs at Craven Cottage.
In the past three seasons, Fulham has been relegated from the Premier League on three separate occasions, with the Whites finishing 19th twice, despite never finishing bottom of the table. As a result of finishing second from bottom in 2013/14, they were relegated because only one point separated them from Cardiff City’s 30 points in that season. As a result of 85 goals being conceded in the league that season, they had the worst goal difference in the league, with a -45 differential due to the incredible amount of goals they conceded.
