The Muere Switch between 1st and 2. League continues for FC Fulham. On Tuesday evening, the traditional club from London made the third climb to the Premier League since 2018.
After the 3-0 home win against Preston North End, Fulham can no longer be displaced by one of the first two squares despite previously two defeats in the championship and, unlike 2018 and 2020, can save the detour via the play-offs. Even on the weekend, even the second league championship could be determined.
Under coach Marco Silva, who had previously looked after FC Watford and FC Everton in England and followed in summer on Scott Parker, Fulham played a convincing season. The quality that the Cottagers had received after the descent in the overall experienced squad was in the end – just offensive.
In still four outgoing games, Fulham has the best prospects, as the third championship team to bolt the Bolton Wanderers (100 Goals 1996/97) and Manchester City (108 Goals 2001/02) the 100 Goals Brand. Satt 98 scored the Silva-EC eleven in the previous 42 performances, 40 of them alone Aleksandar Mitrovic, who again doubled against Preston (9./41.). The 27-year-old Serb had already set up a new championship record with his 32th hit. The 19-year-old Fabio Carvalho marked his tenth goal of goal at Tuesday (34.).
Now Fulham can prepare the premier league season earlier than at the last two climbs. This time, the stay should last longer than a year.
