Fulham vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Friday 9th April 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
A month ago Fulham were in a good head space because even though they were in the bottom three they were picking up points and reducing the gap to 17th placed Newcastle, the future looked bright.
However all of that has changed and the Cottagers have now lost their last 3 games in a row and picked up just 3 points from their last 15.
All is not lost but reality is hitting home for Scott Parker’s side that they could still be relegated. Currently the club are 3 points from safety and relyng on Newcastle to drop points. The other worry is that 19th placed West Bromwich Albion are only 5 points behind them and looking good for a strong run in.
Last weekend Fulham lost their 15th game of the season going down 3-1 at Aston Villa. One could say the club will be happy to return home but with just 2 wins so far they have the worst home record in the Premier League.
Wolves are down to 14th after they lost at the weekend against West Ham. The club found themselves 3-0 down early on but came back to 3-2 but it wasn’t enough.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have 35 points and they should be safe this season but at the same time they would feel they need at least another 5 points to be out of the woods.
It’s been six games since Wolves tasted victory and away from home they have won 4 games from 15, earning 16 points from a possible 45.
Fulham vs Wolves: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here was in 2018 when the game ended 1-1.
- Wolves have won 7 from the last 10 meetings.
- The last 5 meetings have all seen under 2.5 goals.
Fulham vs Wolves: Prediction
The pressure is all on Fulham to win this game and manager Scott Parker needs to wipe the slate clean and regroup with his players. If he can convince them that their season starts now, they have every chance to win this duel.
The problem with Fulham has been their recent form but they are facing a team who are in poor form themselves and low in confidence. Fulham need to win this game but a 90 minute result needs to be avoided because we expect a close game between two equal sides coming into this game.
