Opposition Focus | Season so far
The Whites come to South Wales on top of the Sky Bet Championship table after 32 fixtures. They're currently nine points ahead of second place Bournemouth, who do have two games in hand.
Marco Silva agreed a three year deal to take over from Scott Parker last summer, with Parker leaving to join their promotion rivals at Dean Court.
They've scored a remarkable 81 league goals in just 32 fixtures this season, with a goal difference of +52 with 14 fixtures still to play.
Opposition Focus: Ones to watch
A big reason for their incredible strike record is forward Aleksandar Mitrović. The Serbian striker has scored 33 league goals in 30 games in the Championship this season.
Their second top scorer this term is former City loanee Harry Wilson. Currently in his first season at Craven Cottage, Wilson has hit the net on eight occasions from 29 fixtures. He's level on that number with Neeskens Kebano, who has scored eight times from one game more.
Fulham's dangers can come from anywhere, with Bobby Decordova-Reid, Fabio Carvalho and Rodrigo Muniz also regularly hitting the target.
Bluebirds & Whites | Club connections
Two aforementioned Fulham players previously spent single seasons at Cardiff City Stadium. Decordova-Reid was signed by the Bluebirds at the start of our 2018/19 top flight campaign. His record was five goals in 27 league appearances that season, before leaving for Fulham the following year. Wilson's South Wales season took place in 2020/21 with the dangerous winger scoring seven times while wearing Cardiff City blue.
Jazz Richards, Scott Malone, Jeff Eckhardt & Ross McCormack are just a few of the other players to have represented both City and Fulham.
