Brighton vs Fulham
2018/19 English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 1st September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).
Brighton welcomes the newly promoted Fulham to the Falmer Stadium on Saturday for this EPL fixture.
The Seagulls are coming into this home game after being hammered with only one goal by the high flying Liverpool. Notably, they are fighting with inconsistency after winning 1 match and losing the other 2 of their 3 last games.
Brighton was thought to have gained momentum after thrashing The Red Devils in their second league fixture. However, this is not forthcoming. They will be coming into this home matchup uncertain of whether or not they will scoop the win.
Unless Chris Hughton, the club’s manager, goes back to the drawing board and gets his me back on track, he should not expect any positive result from this game. Even so, a majority of fans expect this to be a chance for the home side to salvage themselves from going down.
Fulham was able to bounce back to the winning ways after a thrilling EPL home fixture against Burnley last weekend. More so, they were able to beat Exeter in a Carabao Cup Fixture and gain momentum.
This is an indication that Fulham is gradually addressing their form and performance woes. They will definitely be coming into this matchup with high spirits.
One thing that Fulham should avoid is conceding goals anyhow. Actually, they have been conceding at least 2 goals in the last 3 EPL games.
