Fulham vs Crystal Palace – Prediction, and Match Preview
Fulham vs Crystal Palace – After their most recent result, a 0-2 Premier League triumph against Southampton, Fulham is hoping to continue their winning ways.
Fulham enjoyed 65% of the possession in that game and 4 of their 9 shots on goal were on goal. Carlos Vincius (48′) and Aleksandar Mitrovi (72′) scored goals for Fulham.
Southampton’s opponents had 5 shots at goal, with 1 of those being successful. Fulham hasn’t given up in far too few of their recent games. In fact, Fulham have given up 8 goals in 5 of their last 6 games due to their inability to stop opponents from scoring.
Prior to this match, Fulham had not lost to Crystal Palace in the league in either of their previous two contests. After defeating Bournemouth 2-0 in their previous Premier League encounter, Crystal Palace will enter this contest on a winning streak.
Crystal Palace enjoyed 60% of the possession in that game and 5 of their 17 shots on goal were successful. Eberechi Eze (39′, 58′) was the lone player for Crystal Palace to get a goal.
Bournemouth made 5 shots on goal at the other end, but none of them were successful. A relatively small number of goals have separated Crystal Palace and their opponents in 5 of the last 6 encounters.
The overall average number of goals scored each game throughout that time span is a pitiful 2.33, with The Eagles’ average goals being 1.33. We’ll just have to wait and see if this tendency will be repeated in this forthcoming game as no two games are ever the same.
According to their past performances, Crystal Palace has gone three league games without losing to Fulham when playing away from home. In their last two league games, they have failed to win on the road.
Fulham vs Crystal Palace – Betting Analysis
Looking at their previous meetings, which date back to May 11, 2014, reveals that Fulham has won one of them and Crystal Palace has won three, with two games ending in draws.
The two teams combined for 14 goals throughout this time, with The Cottagers scoring 6 and The Eagles scoring 8. That equals 2.33 goals per game on average.
The teams’ most recent league encounter took place on Premier League Match Day 17 on December 26, 2022, with Crystal Palace defeating Fulham 0-3 in the final score. Crystal Palace enjoyed 36% of the possession on that particular day, but only managed to get 4 shots on goal.
11 of Fulham’s 23 shot attempts found the back of the net. Tim Ream (71′), Bobby De Cordova-Reid (31′), and Aleksandar Mitrovi (80′) all scored goals. Andrew Madley served as the referee for the game.
Marco Silva, the manager of Fulham, will be without Layvin Kurzawa (sideband rip), Tim Ream (fractured arm), and Andreas Pereira (ankle injury).
With Bernd Leno, Kenny Tete, Tosin Adarabioyo, Issa Diop, Antonee Robinson, Joo Palhinha, Harrison Reed, Harry Wilson, Tom Cairney, Willian, and Aleksandar Mitrovic, we believe The Cottagers could choose a 4-2-3-1 system this time.
Roy Hodgson, the manager of Crystal Palace, has no reservations about his players’ fitness going into this game because they are all entirely injury-free.
Sam Johnstone, Joel Ward, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi, Tyrick Mitchell, Eberechi Eze, Cheick Doucouré, Jeffrey Schlupp, Michael Olise, Jordan Ayew, and Odsonne Edouard are the players we think The Eagles are most likely to start in a 4-3-3 formation.
