Fulham may be at home this weekend, but the Whites manager believes their visitors are favourites for all three points.
The Whites have only won once at Craven Cottage so far this campaign - beating Hull City the last time they played at home.
This weekend they welcome a Middlesbrough side who sit just outside the play-off places in the Championship, four points ahead of their hosts.
And Slavisa Jokanovic believes Boro are the favourites this weekend.
He said: "Middlesbrough showed great ambition, made important investment in some important Championship players and they are very powerful in front of the goal.
"It's an experienced team, they know this competition and I'm not surprised they're at the top of the table, at this moment they're favourites.
"This is one of the toughest games in the Championship against a quality team, I'm sure we are going to be motivated and try to fix some problems because after the loss [against Burton] it was not a happy week, it's our chance now to fix this.
"I think in this moment, if you ask me who are favourites to win this game, it's Boro because of how they played in the last few games, they're at a good level."
