It’s clear that the gap between the Premier League and the Championship is wider than ever, but you really have no hope of surviving if your defence leaks goals for fun.

Fulham did look well organised last season but strikers at the top level are quicker, stronger and so much more clinical, so you can find yourself a goal or two down very quickly in this league.

It doesn’t look like they have the firepower to copy Leeds and make every game a 4-3 affair, so you have to think they will look to strengthen the defence to give them a better chance this season.
