Aston Villa vs Fulham
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4th April 2021
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Villa Park.
Sadly for Aston Villa they have blown a few chances lately to make a bid for a top 4 finish and have in fact gone their last 4 games without a win.
Villa will not finish in the top four now and that chance is over and they come into this game in 10th place with 41 points. Their last encounter ended in a 2-0 defeat at home to Tottenham.
Dean Smith’s side will now be facing another London team although this one are not doing well in the league and could be relegated.
This game in a way is all about Fulham because Aston Villa have stalled in the league and do not have much to play for now, although of course they could finish in a Europa League position.
However with Fulham they are fighting to stay in the league and if Newcastle lose at the weekend and they win then Fulham would be in 17th place and a point clear of Steve Bruce’s men.
The Cottagers have played some good football this year and recorded some good wins like beating Liverpool away from home. However recent form has slumped and they have lost 3 of their last four games.

Aston Villa vs Fulham: Prediction
Aston Villa player for player are simply better than Fulham and they come into this game due a win. Villa also have a good record over Fulham and should start as the favourites.
All of the pressure is on Fulham to perform and quite frankly they look a little tired and we can see a home win here.
Look out for Jack Grealish, there is a lot of talk that Grealish should be playing for England at this summer’s Euro’s, but he will need to put in some very good performances until the end of the season.
