Huddersfield have failed to score in their last seven home top-flight matches - only one team in the history of the top-flight has failed to score in eight in a row (Man City between January and May 2007). Fulham are [4.0] to keep a clean sheet.

Ryan Sessegnon - who scored his first Premier League goal in Fulham's last away game at Cardiff - could become the youngest player (18y 171d on day of this game) to score in consecutive away Premier League matches since Wayne Rooney in 2004. Sessegnon is [6.0] to find the net.
