Burnley vs Fulham (By: Saconex)
England Premier League
Burnley (16) vs Fulham (19)
Burnley are coming from 2 straight victories, 2-0 vs West Ham (10) & 1-2 vs Huddersfield (20). That got them out of the relegation zone and as it stands total record is 5-3-13 with 21-42 in goal difference. Also last match in the FA Cup ended with victory, 1-0 vs Barnsley. Expect the hosts to go out for 3 points here. Reports says that both Heaton & Pope is back from injury, so time will tell which goalkeeper they will start with, I guess Hart will be out of the team again. Lennon injured, Brady suspended.
Fulham are still placed in the bottom and the relegation zone with total record of 3-5-13 and 19-47 in goal difference. They lost 1-2 in the FA Cup vs Oldham last time out, maybe not a bad idea taking in mind that staying away from relegation in the league is their main target. They got crushed in the last league match, losing 4-1 away vs Arsenal (5). Away record is really weak: 0-2-9 with 7-28 in goal difference. Mawson & Anguissa injured.
* Fulham won the reverse fixture by 4-2 back in August
* 8 of 9 Fulham away losses ended up by losing with 2+ goals
I think the value we get on the hosts today are very attractive. Overall they are looking a lot better compared with Fulham, and I think chances are good for them to win this important match + take revenge from August. Fulham looked a little better before the Arsenal loss for sure, but they are facing this Burnley team with a style of football that doesn’t suit them good, I think. So Im going for Burnley to win this, hopefully with 2+ goals.
