Fulham were on the way to snatch their third win of the campaign on Wednesday when Ryan Sessegnon broke the deadlock with 15 minutes to play against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The opposition comes in the likes of rock-bottomed Huddersfield Town who enter the game on the back of a six-game losing streak.

Fulham vs Huddersfield: Prediction
Huddersfield conceded three goals to Southampton and Man United apiece in last two rounds. They scored no more than four during a six-loss streak. They allowed as many as 20 goals in 9 matches on the road this season. It’s the second weakest defensive record on travels in the entire league.
It will no doubts be the music to the ears of Aleksandar Mitrovic who is looking to add to his seven-goal tally. The Serbian striker did not shine in recent weeks, though, as Fulham only bagged one goal in last there outings.
Nonetheless, Fulham did show signs of improvements under Claudio Ranieri and they played well against Wolves on Boxing Day. Knowing about their super impressive home record against the Terriers, we are going for the home win at 2.00 odds as the main betting option here.
