Fulham v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview, 11th August 3.00pm
After such a strong season in the Championship, the general feeling is that Fulham are going to be an asset to the top flight. The Londoners do look as if they have a good squad after adding to it over the summer. Palace have slightly dipped their toes in the transfer market this summer, will they be able to have a more stable season?
Fulham v Crystal Palace Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 11/5

Fulham News and Form
We like what Fulham have done over the summer in tweaking and strengthening the squad and the icing on the cake was landing Aleksandar Mitrovic who really produced well for them on loan last season. He is the 7/5 bet365 anytime goalscorer favourite and the youngster is well worth a look there* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.). The Cottagers have strengthened their defence with the incoming Alfie Mawson and Callum Chambers as well and they look a well-balanced squad.
They were so strong going forward last season, ending up as the second-highest goalscorers in the Championship and we have to go over 2.5 goals at 19/20 odds here* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.). Fulham get the ball down, play at pace and aren’t afraid to push on. But a big strength of their last term was also their defence which played a big part in their massive 23-match undefeated streak of form they put together. On home soil, they are likely to come out of the gates quickly.
Crystal Palace News and Form
It does look as if Palace are going to hold on to their prized asset of Wilfried Zaha and that’s so important for them. In the nine games he missed through injury last season, Palace didn’t earn a single point. The Eagles, of course, had that shocking start to last season, losing their first seven games without scoring a single goal in the process. They have added Cheikhou Kouyate from West Ham, which looks to be a good fit in midfield, while also having grabbed Max Meyer on a free transfer.
That was a smart bit of opportunistic business by the Eagles. But aside from that, it is pretty much as they were. Palace only took four away wins last season and their defence was absolutely shambolic at times. But with Zaha there they are worth backing to get on the board and both teams to score is at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.). At the back end of last season, Palace scored at least two goals in all but one of their last six games.
Fulham v Crystal Palace Head to Head
The last time Palace and Fulham met was in the 2013/14 Premier League season and it was Fulham who came out on top four points from the two games. Fulham are unbeaten in three games against the Eagles and they are W3 L1 overall in their four previous Premier League games against Palace. Each of the last three have gone over the 2.5 goal line.
Who will win – Fulham v Crystal Palace Predictions
It is well worth getting behind the Cottagers here. They played some excellent stuff last season and importantly got Aleksandar Mitrovic on a permanent deal and the striker gave them a great edge last season. Palace for us haven’t done enough in the summer so we are going with a Fulham to win & both teams to score option for our Fulham v Crystal Palace betting tips.
