Match facts

    Sheffield Wednesday have lost their past two home league matches against Fulham - the Owls had lost just one of their previous 19 league games at Hillsborough against the Cottagers before this (W10 D8). Fulham are looking to register consecutive league wins over Sheffield Wednesday for the first time since November 1982. Steven Fletcher has scored in his last three league games for Sheffield Wednesday - the last Owls player to score in four in a row was Gary Hooper in September 2017. Fulham have had 142 sequences in open play with 10 or more passes - 59 more than any other Championship team, and 98 more than Sheffield Wednesday. Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk has never lost a Championship match against Fulham (P4 W1 D3), winning most recently in May 2018 with Birmingham City. Fulham's Ivan Cavaleiro has been involved in seven open-play sequences ending in a goal - more than any other Championship player this season.
