There will be a huge game in the Premier League this weekend for Fulham, as they look to kickstart their season with the visit of Crystal Palace. But, will they be able to get the three points?
Premier League Preview
It hasn’t been the best start to the season for Fulham, and it already looks like it is going to be a very long season ahead for the club. They are bottom of the Premier League after losing four of their five games so far this season. The writing could already be on the wall for the club from Craven Cottage, but Scott Parker isn’t about to throw in the towel at this early stage. However, they will be keen to ensure that the difference between themselves and the sides just outside of the relegation places doesn’t extend to something that they are unable to reach.
There were signs of a fightback in their most recent fixture, as they played out a 1-1 draw on the road against Sheffield United. Fulham looked to have done enough to get all three points from that game as they took the lead with just over ten minutes remaining through Ademola Lookman. However, they were unable to take all three points after Billy Sharp equalised from the spot.
Crystal Palace started the season well by winning their opening two matches of the season, with the pick of those results being their won over Manchester United. However, after that win at Old Trafford, the Eagles lost their next two against Everton and Chelsea. They were able to steady the ship in their last Premier League match as they took a point against Brighton & Hove Albion. Palace were fortunate to come away from that game with a point in truth as Brighton dominated the game.
Fulham vs Crystal Palace Head To Head
Fulham haven’t beaten Palace since 2013. In that season, Fulham were relegated from the Premier League. Palace have won the last two matches between the sides, with both of these ending 2-0. The most recent win for the Eagles came in February 2019.
Fulham vs Crystal Palace Prediction
This is a huge match for Fulham, as they could put a marker down for the season ahead with a big home win. We expect them to get their first three points from this fixture, as they have looked a much better side since the arrivals of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Lookman.
