Burnley vs Fulham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 3 January 2021
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Turf Moor.
Sean Dyche’s men had made a worrying start to their campaign, and were stuck in the relegation zone for a long time. However, they have made some drastic change to their form lately, and have lost only one of their past five matches in the league.
As of now, they have a lead of five points over the relegation cut-off, and more importantly, they have built some valuable momentum. The team hopes they could carry this going into the new year.
This weekend, they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the competition – the 18th placed Cottagers, who were also promoted to the top flight just at the end of the last season.
Scott Parker’s men have a total of just two wins all through this campaign, and one of those had come against the 19th placed West Brom.
Going on, the Clarets also have a terrific h2h record at this venue over the past several years, and especially so at this stadium.
For the reasons, expect Burnley to have the upper hand this Sunday.
Burnley vs Fulham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-1 win for Dyche’s men at this venue.
- They had recorded six of the former eight overall wins.
- They have scored two or more goals in the previous four straight games.
- The hosts have a 100% winning record at this stadium in the past two decades, barring a single draw in 2009.
- After 2008, the vistiors have scored a total of just three goals at this ground.
Burnley vs Fulham: Prediction
The Clarets recorded a 1-0 win at home the last match-day, against Sheffield United. In the meantime, the Cottagers were held to a goalless draw at home by Southampton.
Going on, Dyche’s men were unbeaten in seven of their preceding nine fixtures, and the two losses during this stretch had come against Leeds, and Manchester City.
And at home, they have a 100% winning record after October, barring a single draw against Everton.
On the other hand, their opposite number had a total of two wins in their last 14 match-ups, and they have a total of one league win on the road since July.
On top of all that, the Clarets also have a phenomenal h2h record at this venue over the past several years.
Taking into account these observations, expect Burnley to overcome this Fulham challenge easily.
