Fulham surpassed every projection by finishing in the top half of the league after being promoted from the Championship last year. Everton vs Fulham’s debut game in the 2023/24 season now underway. Can the Cottagers maintain their Premier League status in 2023–24?
Fulham supporters possess every reason to be a bit nervous as the new season begins, given the uncertainty surrounding the futures of both manager Marco Silva and star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.
After conquering the 2021–22 Championship with 90 points, Fulham made a triumphant return to the Premier League, keeping Liverpool to a 2-2 draw on the very first weekend before defeating teams like Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Cottagers became European contenders with a run of six victories, two draws, and only two defeats, but Marco Silva’s team lost eight of their remaining 13 games and ended up in 10th place.
Although they had the equally poorest defensive record among the top 12 teams, Fulham can still be happy with what they accomplished last season, as they won 15 of their 38 Premier League matches and finished seven points within the top half.
Aleksandar Mitrovic is without a doubt Fulham’s star player. The Serbian striker has 205 appearances and 111 goals with the Cottagers, but he has stated that he wants to depart this summer.
In light of this, Fulham paid about £5.5 million to acquire Raul Jimenez from Wolverhampton Wanderers. Calvin Bassey, a former Rangers defender, has also moved from Ajax and joined for somewhat less than £20 million.
Joao Palhinha, a defensive midfield dynamo from Portugal, is also crucial to Fulham, while other vital players like Andreas Pereira and Bernd Leno will be looking to continue their strong play from the previous campaign.
What Goals Might Fulham Have for the 2023–24 Season?
What Fulham can accomplish in 2023–24 depends on Mitrovic and Silva’s actions.
It is not known that Mitrovic is considering leaving the team, and Silva has been offered a lucrative contract by Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia.
Everton vs Fulham score prediction
The Cottagers might aim for another mid-table finish if the star scorer and manager remain.
Fulham, meanwhile, might find themselves relegated next year if things don’t go according to schedule between now and the beginning of September.
Everton under Sean Dyche could get something from this game.
