“It is the most difficult game but it is not like so far we have not played good teams yet. We have played against some top teams like Derby away and Forest away. On paper they are definitely one of the favourites to go up. It is a big test for us,” Bilic explained.
Bilic’s side have reason to be confident. They won at Nottingham Forest on the opening day, before drawing against last season’s playoff finalists Derby County at Pride Park. They also beat Luton Town away.
But Fulham at Craven Cottage is arguably among the toughest games in the Championship. The Whites demonstrated their ability in the 4-0 thrashing of Millwall when they racked up over 75% possession.
In Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ivan Cavaleiro, Anthony Knockaert and Bobby Reid, they have an abundance of attacking riches at their disposal and manager Scott Parker couldn’t have wished for more at Championship level.
Fulham, however, have shown some vulnerability this season. They lost to Nottingham Forest in their last home encounter, while they suffered a defeat at Barnsley on the opening day.
