Crystal Palace vs Fulham
England Premier League
Date: Sunday, 28 February 2021
Kick-Off at 12.00 UK
Venue: Selhurst Park, London.
Fulham’s fans could not even see a glimmer of hope when it comes to saving the elite class status just a month ago. Nevertheless, Scott Parker managed to install the much-needed confidence into his troops as the Cottagers grew in a fantastic fashion in February. The team won two and drew two of the last four Premier League fixtures and are now just three points short of the safe zone.
The Cottagers have a fantastic opportunity to keep the unbeaten streak going on Sunday when they take on the city rivals Crystal Palace in the first game of the day, exactly at noon at Selhurst Park. The Glaziers are ten points above the Lilywhites but only thanks to better performances in the first half of the season. Should we look at the current form only, Fulham are clear favourites going into the tie.
Crystal Palace vs Fulham Head-to-head
The Cottagers lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of their 14th match against Crystal Palace.
However, the Glaziers won each of the last three head to head encounters, including this season’s 1-2 victory at Craven Cottage.
Both teams were on target in six of the last eight meetings.
Crystal Palace vs Fulham Prediction
Roy Hodgson’s men did manage to claim the spoils in the previous round, but only thanks to some sort of wizardry. They were brutally dominated by Brighton & Hove Albion at The AMEX, but somehow managed to grab a 1-2 victory thanks to a stoppage-time goal from substitute Christian Benteke. Crystal Palace generally look very bad without Wilfied Zaha in the team. The talisman is still sidelined through injury and we can’t quite see the uninspiring attacking line of the Glaziers hurting the rock-solid Fulham defence here.
The visitors have significantly tightened things up defensively of late. Easy schedule had something to do with it surely, but still, Scott Parker’s men shipped only one goal in the last four league outings. AS a matter of fact, Fulham lost just 4 of 12 league fixtures on the road this season, and they are in the relegation zone. We’ll follow the form and back the away win as the main betting option at the odds of 2.20.
