Fulham Prediction

Fulham remain second from bottom in the Premier League as recent changes in management after the sacking of former manager, Claudio Ranieri was followed with the appointment of former player Scott Parker, haven’t had any effect on Fulham’s end results.

The Cottagers have now lost their last six matches on the trot in the Premier League following losses to Crystal Palace, Manchester United, West Ham, Southampton, Chelsea and Leicester City and the hosts now look doomed to follow fellow relegation strugglers, Huddersfield Town, down into the Championship next season.

Fulham’s home record stands at 4-3-7 18/28 and have registered recent wins against Huddersfield Town and Brighton, but these rare victories have been too little too late for the London club who are now on their third manager this season.

On the subject of three’s Fulham have also tried three different goalkeepers in the shape of Bettinelli, Fabri and Rico but none have been able to prevent Fulham’s very poor and leaky defence this season, and the visit of a free-scoring Liverpool can only spell further trouble for The Cottagers.


Key-Facts – Fulham v Liverpool

  • Fulham have lost their last 6 matches on the trot in the EPL
  • Fulham possess the worst defensive record overall in the Premier League
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 9 matches overall in the EPL


Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool will still be on a high following their victorious midweek 3-1 win away at German champions Bayern Munich in the Champions League, and although manager Jurgen Klopp may choose to rotate his squad here, the visitors will also need to ensure they take all three points here in order to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the division.

Liverpool bring an unbeaten nine-match sequence into this fixture which includes wins against Brighton, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Watford and Burnley, but they’ve also drawn four of these last nine matches which has cost The Reds valuable ground in the title race.

Liverpool have drawn their last three away matches on the trot amidst an overall away record of 9-5-1 24/8 which ordinarily be considered a good record on the road, but they can’t afford any more slip-ups in the title race and this includes being held to a draw at Fulham today.

6 of Liverpool’s 15 away matches have seen over 2.5 goals, but goal difference could also come into play in deciding this season’s title, so I’m expecting an attacking Liverpool outfit here.

Betting Tips Verdict

A Liverpool win along with goals seems the only logical outcome here, with the visitors winning perhaps 3-1.
