Can Fulham kick start their return to the top-flight?

When the Cottagers were promoted via the play-offs just a month ago, even then it was evident that this could be a very long season for them.

However, the most worrying thing for Fulham fans is the fact this appears to be the case already.

On the opening day, Scott Parker’s side suffered a reality check as they were beaten 3-0 at home by Arsenal.

The Gunners simply too good in that one.

Then, last weekend, they travelled to Elland Road to take on fellow newly-promoted club Leeds United.

The hosts took the lead after just five minutes, a lead that was whipped out half an hour later by an Aleksandar Mitrović penalty.

However, Leeds then scored three times in 16 minutes either side of half time to race into a 4-1 lead.

Goals from Mitrović and Bobby Decordova-Reid got it back to 4-3 but that is how it finished in West Yorkshire.

So zero points from two for Parker’s men.

In Fulham’s last two Premier League seasons, they’ve conceded 85 and 81 goals respectively, getting relegated both times.

So far this season, they’re on course to ship 133 goals; the current record in a 38 games season is Derby in 2007/08 who let in 89.

While they’re unlikely to reach that figure, the point still stands that Fulham have been shambolic defensively in their opening two games.

They have shown better form in the Carabao Cup so far, all be it against lower-league opposition.

Having beat Ipswich Town 1-0 in the second round, they hosted Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday night.

Aboubakar Kamara and Decordova-Reid were on target in a comfortable 2-0 win.

They’ll now travel to the Brentford Community Stadium for the first time in the fourth round on Thursday.

That is not only a West London Derby but is also a repeat of August’s Championship play-off final.

Before then though, can Parker’s side get off the mark in the Premier League?

Will Aston Villa be victorious?

Aston Villa meanwhile got off to the perfect start.

Their Premier League opener at Manchester City was rescheduled so the Villains kicked off at home to Sheffield United last Monday night.

The contest swung into their favour early on when Egan was sent off for pulling down Ollie Watkins.

Despite only having ten-men, Sheffield United won a penalty on the stroke of half time but debutant Emi Martínez made a superb save.

That proved crucial because, just after the half-hour mark, Tyrone Mings’ flick-on found Ezri Konsa who guided in the winner.

Given that Villa only stayed up on the final day by one point and one place last season, it’s important they start well if they’re to avoid a similar dogfight.

Dean Smith’s men have also been in fine form in the Carabao Cup.

Their first game of this season was in the second round as they came from behind to beat Burton Albion 3-1 at the Pirelli Stadium.

Then, on Thursday evening, they swatted aside Championship Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

Anwar El Ghazi, Bertrand Traoré and Watkins on target.

Last season’s League Cup runners-up will host Stoke City on Thursday for a place in the quarter-finals.

Before then, can they start a top-flight season with back to back wins for the first time since 1999?

Parker made seven changes to his XI on Wednesday so it’ll be interesting to see how many who started at Leeds last weekend come back in.

In goal, Marek Rodák has started both League Cup ties and the opening day defeat to Arsenal so far.

However, Alphonse Areola, who made his debut for the club at Leeds, will come back in.

He’s on loan from Paris Saint-Germain having spent last season on loan at Real Madrid.

In his career, the Frenchman has won the World Cup, four Ligue 1 titles, two Coupe de Frances, two Coupe de la Ligues, three Trophée des Champions, La Liga and a Supercopa de España.

Given Fulham’s defending so far this season, it’s likely to be a campaign like no other for Areola.

At the back, Michael Hector and Denis Odoi both started the last two games and are likely to continue at centre-back.

Kenny Tete, who’s joined from Olympique Lyonnais, will be at right-back.

On the other side, USA international Antonee Robinson made his home debut for the club on Wednesday but Joe Bryan will return for this one.

In midfield, Harrison Reed will defiantly start and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa, who spent last season on loan at Villarreal, could continue as his partner.

Tom Cairney, Stefan Johansen, Kevin McDonald, Mario Lemina and Jean Michaël Seri are the other options.

Further forward, Josh Onamah could keep his place, flanked by Aboubakar Kamara and Ivan Cavaleiro.

They would be returning to the XI after Anthony Knockaert and Neeskens Kebano came in in midweek.

Aleksandar Mitrović will lead the line, looking to add to his three goals so far this season.

Bobby Decordova-Reid, who’s also scored three times so far this season, will be on the bench.

Dean Smith made 11 changes for Thursday’s trip to Ashton Gate but will largely revert to the XI that started last Monday’s Premier League win.

Emi Martínez, who saved a penalty on his debut after arriving from Arsenal, is the number one goalkeeper.

They do have a lot of goalkeepers currently on their books.

Jed Steer started on Thursday and they also have Ørjan Nyland, Lovre Kalinić and Tom Heaton who’s been out injured since New Years’ Day.

The back four that started against Sheffield United a week ago is set to return.

This includes new signing Matty Cash at right-back as well as Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa, who combined for the winner in that one.

Frédéric Guilbert, Ahmed Elmohamady, Kortney Hause and Neil Taylor will all drop out from midweek.

In midfield, Conor Hourihane, Douglas Luiz and John McGinn will all return.

Henri Lansbury, Marvelous Nakamba and youngster Jacob Ramsey will all drop out.

In attack, there could be a change.

Burkina Faso international Bertrand Traoré, who’s just joined from Olympique Lyonnais for around £17 million, scored on debut on Thursday.

He could make his Premier League debut for the club, making up a front three alongside Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins.

Trézéguet would drop out, joining Anwar El Ghazi, Jota and Keinan Davis as attackers in reserve.

Wesley, like Heaton, also hasn’t played since suffering a nasty injury at Burnley on 1 January.
