Their home form is inconsistent since they scooped a win in a thriller match against Burnley and a loss in the previous fixture against Crystal Palace. The overall league performance has also been varying having been able to scoop only one win.

The cottagers have conceded at least have conceded at least 2 goals I the last 5 EPL games. On this note, there have been over 2.5 goals in Fulham’s last 4 EPL fixtures. This is a clear indication that the defense line of the cottagers is porous and wants major changes for this home game.

Jokanović’s squad will be without Neeskens Kebano and Tim Ream who is out with injury. Also, Tom Cairney remains a doubt as he nears a return to full fitness. On the other hand, the forward line of Sessegnon and Schuirrle are most likely to be among the starting XI.

The winning of the Hornets was ended by a home defeat by the Red Devils during the round of 5 matchup last weekend. Before then, they were flying high at the third place in the league standing merely after playing 4 games.

Javi Gracia’s men will be coming into this away match with high hope that they will bounce back to their winning streak. This means that they will do anything humanly possible to beat the just promoted side.

Fulham vs Watford: Head-to-Head

In the last h2h meeting which was played in March early this year, Watford were lucky to win with only one goal.

In the last 5 h2h meetings, the Hornets have won twice.

Fulham have only won once.

Fulham vs Watford: Prediction

With the current form and performance of both teams, the only viable prediction for this game is both teams to score. Ideally, both sides will strive to put each other down.

If the Cottagers do not fix their porous defensive line, they stand to lose this home game. Watford id a dangerous side which have continually scooped wins in most of their fixtures this season, even in the seemingly difficult games.
