Fulham Relegation Odds: 6/5 odds taken 2008 GMT, Wednesday 6 July

Fulham secured an instant return to the Premier League after winning the 2021-22 EFL Championship in style. They had a few minor bumps along the way, but Marco Silva’s Cottagers were the dominant force in the second tier last term and fully warranted their promotion back to the promised land.

Fulham have suffered two instant relegations in recent times, and the west London outfit will be desperate to avoid the same scenario this season. With the right business done in the transfer market before the window slams shut, Fulham are capable of keeping themselves afloat, but it will be a challenge.

In our in-depth Fulham betting preview, we look ahead to their survival chances this season, and look back on their excellent 2021-22 title-winning campaign. We also have the latest odds and top tips.

2021-22 Review: Superb Cottagers cruise to promotion

After suffering relegation from the top tier the season before, Fulham were gunning for an instant return. The Cottagers hit the ground running under new boss Silva, collecting 13 points from a possible 15. They suffered their first league defeat of the season in mid-September, losing to newly promoted Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Fulham really stamped their authority in the title race with an outstanding run of seven straight wins from the middle of October to late November. They then kicked off 2022 with ten wins from 13, suffering just one defeat in the process.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to win the Premier League

Fulham lost four of their last seven matches of the season, but they were crowned Championship champions in style when they walloped Luton Town 7-0 at Craven Cottage on 2nd May. The Londoners finished on 90 points after 27 wins, nine draws and ten defeats. They netted a staggering 106 times and conceded just 43.

Our betting prediction:
Nott’m Forest to finish bottom

Fulham Transfer News: Who will join Palhinha at the Cottage?

Fulham have been quiet in the transfer market, with Joao Palhinha, who recently arrived from Sporting Lisbon, being their only incoming deal so far. Steven Sessegnon, Sonny Hilton and Taye Ashby-Hammond have left on loan, while Andre-Frank Zambo Anguisa has joined Napoli.

Fulham’s biggest bit of business in terms of transfers this summer is the sale of Fabio Carvalho. The 19-year-old Portuguese has joined Liverpool for a reported fee of around £7m.

2022-23 Key Fixtures: Londoners start against the Reds

Fulham have the toughest of starts to their 2022-23 Premier League campaign, as Silva’s side welcome Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to Craven Cottage. The Reds won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup and were runners-up in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League last season.

The first London derby will be against Brentford on 20th August. Fulham then play rivals Chelsea at home in September. Before the FIFA World Cup break, the Cottagers face both Manchester clubs before returning to action on Boxing Day with a trip to Crystal Palace. Fulham’s season ends at Old Trafford on 28th May.

Who Are Their Biggest Challengers: Can the Cottagers stay up this time?

Fulham romped their way to the Championship title last term, finishing on 90 points and scoring an incredible 106 goals. The Cottagers have been somewhat of a yoyo club in recent times, suffering two instant relegations back to the second tier. Can they keep themselves up this time around?

Staying up will be the priority, but Fulham will be looking to finish as high as possible this term. They have a top manager in Silva, though they have been quiet in the transfer market so far. It will be very interesting to see how Fulham fare this season, and who will be their main rivals?

Everton Preview: Can Lampard take the Toffees forward?

Everton had a miserable 2021-22 season. They made a strong start under Rafael Benitez, but a woeful run of one win, three draws and 11 defeats from 15 games saw the Merseysiders slip towards the bottom three. Frank Lampard replaced Benitez in January.

Everton had a few more sticky spells before the season concluded, but they survived after a dramatic comeback win over Crystal Palace in their penultimate game. The Toffees will be hoping to be nowhere near the bottom three this time around.

Leeds United Preview: Whites to stay away from bottom three?

Leeds United were on their way to relegation last season, and the popular Marcelo Bielsa was sacked in February after a 4-0 hammering by Tottenham at Elland Road. Jesse Marsch lost his first two fixtures in charge, but Leeds went on to win three and draw two of the next five.

United survived on the final day after an excellent victory at the Brentford Community Stadium. After finishing ninth in their first year back, the relegation battle was a real shock to the system. Still, Marsch will be looking to stamp his authority at Elland Road, and Leeds will be hoping to finish around mid-table this term.

Aston Villa Preview: Big season ahead for Gerrard?

After a solid season, Steven Gerrard is starting to build something at Villa Park. The boss has made some superb signings, with his legendary status as a player allowing him to attract top players to Villa Park – Philippe Coutinho has already arrived from Barcelona this summer.

Many bookies and pundits alike have tipped Aston Villa for a mid-table finish, but can the Midlands outfit sneak into Europe this season? They should have more than enough to avoid a relegation scrap, but anything is possible in this game.

Brentford Preview: Can the plucky Bees survive again?

Avoiding the drop will be the number one priority for Brentford this season. They may have finished 13th last term, but the Bees will take 17th spot right now if offered. The lack of signings at present may worry the Bees’ supporters, but their squad is strong enough to compete once again.

We would not be surprised to see Brentford in a relegation scrap this term, but they proved their doubters wrong last term. Can they stay in the Premier League for a second season running?

Bournemouth Preview: Can the Cherries avoid an instant return?

After two years away, Bournemouth are back in the top tier of English football. Scott Parker done a terrific job at the Vitality Stadium last year, guiding the Cherries to a second-place finish behind his former club Fulham. They won 25, drew 13 and lost eight of 46 league matches.

Like any promoted club, Bournemouth will be doing everything in their power to avoid an instant return to the Championship. Naturally, they are one of the favourites to go down, but can Parker keep the Cherries in the Premier League?

Nottingham Forest Preview: How will the returning Reds fare?

Nottingham Forest spent two decades away from the Premier League, even spending time in EFL League One. However, they are back in the big time after winning the 2021-22 Championship play-offs. When Steve Cooper arrived at the City Ground in September, Forest were bottom of the Championship table.

The Reds defied the odds last term, and Cooper is already a Nottingham Forest legend after guiding the club back to the Premier League. Of course, the Midlands outfit will want to stay there now and become an established top-flight team. At the time of writing, Cooper’s men are priced at 4/5 to stay up.

Players to Watch Out For in the 2022-23 Season: Can Mitro do it in the big time?

Aleksandar Mitrovic has just had a remarkable season for the Cottagers in the Championship, scoring a staggering 43 goals in 46 games. The Serb broke Guy Whittingham’s scoring record, netting twice in Fulham’s 7-0 win over Luton, which clinched the title. Overall, Mitrovic scored 48 goals in 56 appearances for club and country.

Mitrovic is one of those players who are too good for the Championship but fail to live up to the hype in the Premier League. When the Whites were last in the top flight, the No. 9 netted just three times. Fulham will need much more from him this year.

Our Fulham Predictions: Cottagers to keep themselves afloat

Staying in the Premier League for promoted teams seems to get harder and harder each year. Last season, Watford and Norwich City both suffered instant returns to the Championship. Fulham have struggled in the past, but can the London outfit finally stay in the Premier League this time around?

It will be a tough task, but Silva is a top manager, and we fancy the Cottagers to keep themselves up. The bookies are offering the decent price of 8/13 for Fulham to avoid the drop.
