Autumnal appointment Nathan Jones got off to the worst possible start during his debut match in the St Mary’s dugout on Boxing Day as South Coast rivals Brighton put them to the sword in a 3-0 defeat. The former Luton Town head coach now has a huge job on his hands to guide the Saints to safety and transform their season.

Drafted in at the start of November following the dismissal of Ralph Hasenhuttl, Jones had the unenviable first task of taking on Liverpool at Anfield in his first game, but he was unable to glean anything from the match, before recently returning from the winter pause with a concerning defeat to high-flying Brighton. Currently propping up the table, Jones could do with a morale-boosting win to get his tenure really up and running.

That job won’t be easy, though, as Fulham are enjoying a stellar campaign under Marco Silva, who currently has the Cottagers up in ninth. The newly-promoted club recently battered Crystal Palace 3-0, which ended a three-game winless run. The Portuguese coach will be aiming to carry that momentum into this match-up in west London against the division’s current basement dwellers.

Fulham vs Southampton match stats

Aleksandar Mitrovic has been the insatiable scoring fiend this campaign, having netted 10 goals in just 13 Premier League appearances — which is just one shy of his best return in a single campaign in the competition — but Andreas Pereira has been the creative fulcrum pulling the strings for Silva’s side. Incredibly, only Kevin De Bruyne (51) has created more chances in the Premier League this season than the former Manchester United midfielder (41).

Fulham’s success this campaign, though, hasn’t been exclusive to just the attacking players. Bernd Leno has also played his part. The summer signing from Arsenal has made 59 saves this term, a number bettered only by Jordan Pickford (62) and David Raya (70).
