FUL vs MLW Dream11 : Unbeaten Millwall look to reassert their spot in the top 6 today when they take on wily customers Fulham in gameweek 4 of the Championship
After enduring a horrendous campaign in the Premier League in the 2018-19 season, Fulham saw themselves drop straight back down into the Championship after just a season in the echelons of English football. It was a horrifying outing for them in the top league, one where they never managed to come to terms with the competition at hand, seeing an absurd transfer policy result in their demise.
Despite being one of the highest spenders in the marquee league, Fulham’s failure to address their backline ended up unravelling their season. The side spent over 100 million, all across attacking players, leaving them in a predicament which saw them both leak goals and fail to imbed a culture of excellence in the frontline.
Now back in the Championship for the 2019-20, the side are looking to emulate their heroics of 2017-18 which saw them make the climb into the Premier League. Beginning with two straight wins, the side were ultimately defeated by Barnsley, a 1-0 defeat which saw them go under the top 6, a spot they’ll be looking to reclaim when they take on a tricky side in Millwall.
Unbeaten after their opening three encounters with the two wins and one draw, Millwall have been impressive for the discipline imbued in the side in the backline, parrying away opposition attacks with consummate ease. It has seen them register two cleansheets in the league, a performance they’ll be looking to emanate when they square off against Fulham today.
