Typical. One of the best away grounds to go to, especially in the sunshine and it looks like it'll be chucking it down!
Should be another good test as IMO they'll be one of the favourites for promotion next season. And have managed to keep some of their best players. So in effect it is almost like playing another Premier League team.
Not to mention Fulham are a week ahead of us fitness wise as they kick off their season next week.
I imagine certain players with play a lot longer today. As we have another friendly on Wednesday maybe Pellers will go half and half. I.e. Some will play a large chunk of today's 90 minutes and the rest on Wednesday.
I guess Balbuena, Masuaku and Fornals will only get 45 minutes as they have only just returned. But Haller should get longer as he has already played 1-2 friendlies for Frankfurt.
Reid maybe will play a little longer too as if I am not mistaken he has only played 45 minutes each game so far? Would like to see him alongside Diop at one point if Diop is over his back injury as Reid for me is a similar player to Balbuena at his best. So I think if we can Reid back to the player he was, he, like Balbuena could really get the best out of Diop.
One last chance for Cullen too maybe before Pellers decides if he is worth keeping or not?
With the final 3 friendlies I expect to see more of the formations and players Pellers wants to start against Man City. So today may be a good indicator.
The one player I am particularly keen to see today is Fornals. As, like I have mentioned before he can play attacking midfield and on the left where Anderson plays. So I am intrigued to see where Pellers plays him today, as that will also be a clue with what happens with other players. I.e. If he plays on the left, will Anderson play more in the right next season like he did for Lazio. And will that mean Antonio will drop to the bench.
Hoping for more promising performances than what we saw from the Man City game 2nd half onwards.
