Fulham vs Burnley
2018/19 English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 26 August 2018
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Craven Cottage will be the venue for this fixture as Fulham hosts Burnley in this ELP Weekend matchup.
The cottagers have found themselves in unfriendly environs after their deserved promotion into the EPL. Evidently, they are facing a hostile welcome into the Premier League having lost their opening game to crystal palace and the second to Tottenham Spurs.
It is a devastating start for Fulham but only time will tell. They may address their woes and gradually climb to a safer place in the standings. Most certainly, Slavisa Jokanovic men would not want to go back to the Championship League.
They may pull off something in this home fixture and rejuvenate their hopes to stay put in the ELP league. Besides, they are facing a weaker side in this match.
The Clarets will be on the road to perhaps seeking an opportunity to scoop the 3 points. However, they have prevailing woes which unless addressed may be music to the ears of their opponents.
Sean Dyche has made wholesale changes in midweek and will recall on his usual XI for the trip to Fulham as he seeks the first league win. Burnley will be without Nick Pope and Steven Defour who are still ruled out. Robbie Brady is closing in on a return to first-team action after a lengthy period on the sidelines.

- Burnley have won the last 2 consecutive h2h meetings.
