Brede Hangeland has asked Martin Jol to settle on his first choice back four in order to give Fulham’s defensive unit some much needed continuity.

Injuries and the manager’s decision to shuffle his pack have meant that Brede Hangeland is the only ever-present member of Fulham’s back line so far this season. Most recently, the Norwegian has been partnered by Philippe Senderos at the heart of the back four and Hangeland hopes that Jol will soon stick by his preferred partnership.

So far this season there’s been a lot of changes in the back four. I think I’ve played every league game but the other three positions have been changing quite a lot.

Ideally you would like a back four that’s really settled and know each other well. Hopefully we can get that as soon as possible.
