Fulham FC or The Cottagers, as they are popularly known, are back in the Premier League after a few seasons in the Championship. They’ve returned to the top tier of English football after playing Championship football for 4 seasons.
In this article, we look at the 5 top assets of Fulham FC for the upcoming season of Fantasy Premier League.
Ryan Sessegnon (£6.5m – Midfielder)
Last year was Ryan Sessegnon’s breakthrough season for the Cottagers. Despite playing most of the season as a left back, the 18-year-old was Fulham’s top scorer with 15 goals & 6 assists. He played as a winger during the business end of the league season making 43 key passes in 44 appearances overall. Sessegnon is surely going to be an FPL asset for various managers across the globe.
Aboubakar Kamara (£4.5m – Forward)
The striker scored a total of 7 goals last season even though he played on the right-wing for half of the season since Mitrovic’s arrival in January from Newcastle. Kamara is an energetic forward who is known for his pace & dribbling abilities. On his day he can be a handful to deal with. He is a good option as your 3rd forward in case you are opting for a heavy 5-man midfield.
Jean Michael Seri (£6.5m – Midfielder)
Fulham pulled off a major coup when they nabbed the signature of the highly rated Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri for a fee around £25million. Seri created 57 chances while assisting 5 times and scoring once in Ligue 1 last season. The Ivorian, who is hailed for his technical & passing ability, will only get better with time and can prove to be a shrewd FPL asset.
Marcus Bettinelli (£4.5m – Goalkeeper)
The 26-year-old kept 12 clean sheets in 22 appearances for the Club. Averaging 2.17 saves per game. He is a ball playing goalkeeper who is highly rated by his manager Jokanovic. Bettinelli has the potential to make it to most of the FPL squads as a substitute/budget goalkeeper. The Fulham No.1 averages 3.47 saves per goal.
Marcus Bettinelli keeps four clean sheets in successive games at Craven Cottage for the first time since Tigana era. #ffc
Tom Cairney (£5.0m – Midfielder)
Cairney created 59 chances in the Championship last season scoring 5 goals for the club in 32 appearances. The midfielder averages a passing accuracy of 91% which was the best accuracy for a midfielder last season. The Scottish midfielder will be the key to Fulham’s creativity in the midfield if they are to maintain their Premier League status.
Fulham’s first five fixtures of the season are Palace (H), Spurs (A), Burnley (H), Brighton (A), Man City (A).
The first four fixtures favour Ryan Sessegnon a lot, it is highly expected that the young midfielder will be picked up by the majority of FPL managers, as he his a big threat going forward for the Cottagers as they’ll be highly reliable on the teenage sensation for goals & creativity from the left flank.
Marcus Bettinelli can be a good budget goalkeeper to kickstart your FPL season with. As Fulham have a good run of fixtures, in the beginning, they’re expected to keep a clean sheet in one of their two home games against Palace or Burnley hence Bettinelli won’t be a bad bet.
Jean Michael Seri’s technical ability will be tested against a tough away trip to Spurs where he’ll be up against a Christian Eriksen led midfield, if he does well against them then a lot of FPL managers will jump on the Seri hype train, as he is known for his ball playing abilities in the middle of the park.
