Perhaps the biggest damning statistic relating to our, putting it politely, catastrophic start to the season, related to our inability to keep a clean sheet.

The statistics show that Fulham are the only side, in the Premier League, who are yet to keep a clean sheet.

With eleven Premier League games now completed, that is a damning insight into where our failings lie.

With goal-scoring chances at a premium, it is essential to be able to keep things tight at the back.

But, eleven games into the new season, Slavisa Jokanovic appears to be struggling to decide on a settled unit.

Once again, against Huddersfield Town, Jokanovic shuffled his back-four, opting to utilise a central defensive partnership of Odoi and Le Marchand.

Whether that is our best partnership I’ll leave you to debate.

However, as we head towards our next game, a tough trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool, this Sunday, would you bet your mortgage on Fulham keeping the Liverpool attack at bay and keeping a clean sheet?

Sadly, I certainly wouldn’t!
