Fulham vs Oldham
England – FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 6th January 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Fulham gets a day of respite after valiantly battling to get off from the relegation zone. They host the League Two side Oldham in the third round of the FA Cup.
The Premier League side seems to show some promise under new manager Claudio Ranieri. He may not be able to repeat his magic with Leicester, but the side has definitely improved under his watchful eyes. They have got themselves an easier fixture at hand, considering that their opponents play in the League Two, and the manager will likely rest some of his key players.
Oldham will not be expecting much out of this game, considering the vast difference in potential between the teams.

Fulham vs Oldham Prediction
The one thing fans can depend on Claudio Ranieri is to figure out wins, especially when the going gets tough. His team is desperately in need of a boost of morale and self-confidence. Going forward, it will be key for their survival in the Premier League.
Right now, they have got Oldham, a mid-table team from the League Two as opponents, and Fulham has the added home advantage. League Two is the fourth tier in the English Football hierarchy, and the difference in class will be on full display in this tie.
The Cottagers will probably line-up without some of their star players, owing to exhaustion from their tough battle to survive in the Premier League. But still, against Oldham, that makes a trip just as an opportunity to gain some valuable experience, the absence won’t make much of a mark.
Fulham will keep a clean sheet and will record the win here. Oldham will find it hard to break down defenses in an away match. Fulham, too, without full capacity won’t be on song, but still will figure out a way to score an early goal to ease off pressure. Later, I strongly think, they will add one more, to close out the match.
