Fulham have won three of their last four games including their last two fixtures at Craven Cottage. They get the chance to get one more on the board as they play host to Newcastle on the final weekend of the season. The Magpies nearly earned a point against Liverpool last weekend but still ended up losing. Regardless of what happens here, they have locked down a bottom half of the table finish.

The Cottagers suffered a 1-0 loss against Wolves last weekend, which snapped a good three-match winning streak that they had been on. The home form that the Cottagers have produced this season in the top flight is W6 D3 L9. They have the chance at making it three wins on the bounce though at Craven Cottage which they will achieve if they topple Newcastle. Their last two wins, successes against Everton and Cardiff both happened with a clean sheet. In total though they have only managed the three home clean sheets all season.
Fulham have conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per home game for the season. Of their six home success, three have been by a one-goal margin and the other three were by a two-goal margin. The Cottagers have not been involved in a league draw in any of their last eighteen played, and none in their last nine home games. Each of their last three games at Craven Cottage have ended up going under 2.5 goals. Fulham have the worst defensive record in this season top flight of all teams.
There was a 0-0 draw between them earlier this season
Fulham are W3 D1 in their last four against the Magpies
The Cottagers are on a six-match winning streak at home against Newcastle
Both teams have scored in one of the last six meetings
Newcastle almost earned a very good point at home against Liverpool last weekend, but they were denied late on in a 3-2 reverse against the Reds. That loss against the title contenders saw a three-match undefeated streak of form by Newcastle, snapped. Newcastle have not had a great time of things away from home in the top flight this season, winning just three games (W8 L7).
They have lost just one of their last four games on the road though in the top flight, which was against top six opposition in the form of Arsenal. Newcastle having tallied 14 away goals this season, an average of 0.8 per road fixture. They have opened the scoring in nine of their 18 away games this season.
Only 33% of Newcastle’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. While they have been a low scoring side, their defence has actually done pretty well on their travels. Newcastle have conceded at an average of 1.3 goals per away game. Six of their seven away defeats this season happened against the current top six teams. So they have handled themselves well enough against anyone outside of the big six.
Each of the three wins that Newcastle have taken on the road have been by a one-goal margin only. Newcastle have scored 79% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures, while they have conceded 65% of their away goals after the halftime break. Only the current bottom four teams in the division have produced fewer league goals than what Newcastle have done this season.
Over 2.5 goals at 8/11
Both teams to score at 4/7
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)
It’s well worth a flutter on the home side coming up with victory in this one just because of what they have produced Craven Cottage recently. Newcastle are not going to be that interested after a huge effort against Liverpool last weekend. Back Fulham to win.

Fulham have won their last two league games. So they are looking as if they are finishing the season in a bit of a positive mood. That could spell a bit of trouble for Cardiff though. The Bluebirds badly need a win in this one as they start the weekend four points from safety. Can they get the better of the Cottagers in a huge game? Read our Fulham v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 25th, 2019 at 7:36 p.m.)
So it is back to back wins for Fulham in the league having taken clean sheet victories over Bournemouth and Everton. Where was that form before they got relegated? At least it is a positive end to the term for them as they head back to the Championship. The Cottagers are W5 D3 L9 at home this season in the top flight and their last home game, they produced the 2-0 success over Everton. That snapped a four-match losing streak that the Cottagers had been on at home. Granted each of those four games were against a current top six side, in what was a devastating run of fixtures for Fulham.
The Cottagers have averaged 1.24 goals per home game this season, but they have conceded at an average of 1.9 per game. They have found the back of the net in six of their last seven league games, so that has been a big improvement from them. Fulham have managed a clean sheet in just 12% of home games this season and they have been losing at the halftime break in 9 home fixtures. The Cottagers have only opened the scoring in six home fixtures this season. Only two sides have a worst home record in the EPL than Fulham have.
Cardiff took a 4-2 home win over Fulham earlier this season
Fulham have lost only one of their last eight against Cardiff
Fulham are undefeated in four home games against the Bluebirds
Six of the last seven meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
The Bluebirds lost last weekend against Liverpool, which is no shame at all. They actually did well to be sitting level at the halftime break, but couldn’t stick in there for what would have been a valuable point. That is four defeats in their last five league games, the one exception being a lifeline victory out at Brighton in their last away game. Cardiff have won three times on the road this season in the top flight and two of those were against bottom-five teams. The positive for Cardiff is that they have remained unbeaten in their seven games against teams with them in the bottom five.
Cardiff are W5 D2 from those games. Overall this season the Bluebirds are W3 D2 L12 on their travels but they need to dig out another in this one. They have been a low scoring side away from home this season as they have only netted eleven goals. They have conceded at an average of 1.75 goals per away game. Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. In total Cardiff have taken a clean sheet in 24% of their road fixtures. Eight of their twelve away defeats this season in the top flight have been by a margin of at least two goals. Cardiff have been trailing at halftime in 9 of their 19 away games. They have scored 82% of their road goals in the second half of fixtures.
Cardiff actually have a good record against the sides down near the foot of the table with them. That means that they will have a chance in this one, even though Fulham have hit a bit of form. This means a lot more to the visitors. Away win.

You just never know what you are going to get from the Cherries at the moment. They powered their way to a big win last weekend snapping a three-match winless streak. Fulham snapped a long losing streak last weekend with a success too. Nothing at stake here for either. Read our Bournemouth v Fulham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.)
The Cherries banked a big 5-0 home win over Brighton in their last league game. That is just the one of two wins in their last ten Premier League games though, so they have been totally up and down and all over the place recently. They have gone without a win in any of their last four on home soil in the top flight though with a D2 L2 record there. That has left their home record at W7 D5 L5 this season in the Premier League where they have averaged 1.7 goals per game. Of their home losses, four of the five have been against the Big Six in the division.
65% of games at the Vitality Stadium have gone over 2.5 goals this season and while Bournemouth have taken a clean sheet in 29% of home fixtures, they have none in their last four at home. Five of their seven home wins record this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. The Cherries have opened the scoring in 10 of their 17 away games and in terms of goalscoring output, only the Big Six have produced more goals in the Premier League than Bournemouth have done. It all depends on if their defence decides to show up or not.
Bournemouth were 3-0 winners over Fulham earlier this season
The Cherries are on a three-match winning streak against the Cottagers
Fulham are winless in their last three visits to Bournemouth
The Cherries have scored ten goals in their last three against Fulham
The Cottagers produced a shock 2-0 home win over Everton last weekend. That snapped a nine-match losing streak of form that they had been on, which has already seen them suffer relegation. The Cottagers still have not won an away game this season though, having picked up a W0 D2 L15 record on their travels. Part of the problem has been putting the ball in the back of the net, which they have done just the eleven times on the road.
The other part of the problem is their defence which has kept just one clean sheet all term. 65% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Of their fifteen away losses this season only two of them have been by a one-goal margin. They have not earned ac elan sheet in any of their last seven on the road this season and Fulham have been losing at the halftime break in 12 of their 17 road fixtures. They do have the worst away record in his season’s top flight with just those two points and they have conceded more goals than any other team.
Fulham had a good weekend last time out, and they may get their chances in this one. Bournemouth are unpredictable but they do have pretty good scoring form at home this season. It may be enough to get them three points.

The Cottagers are down and out already, while Everton have put together a last spurt of form to try and challenge for a top-seven finish. The Toffees head back into action on a three-match winning streak in the top flight. With Fulham’s fight gone, will the Toffees extend their winning touch? Read our Fulham v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 9th, 2019 at 11:32 p.m.)
Fulham will be playing in the Championship next season and there have been no real signs that they are going to finish this season on any kind of positive note. They are currently on a nine-match losing streak in the Premier League and they have lost their last four at Craven Cottage as well. In their last fixture, they made a trip to Vicarage Road on to face Watford and suffered a 4-1 defeat. The home form of Fulham this season reads W4 D3 L9 and all four of those victories have been against sides who are currently sat inside the bottom seven in the Premier League.
Fulham have scored 19 goals this season at home but they have conceded at an average of exactly 2 goals per home game. Five of their last six home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Fulham have managed to take a clean sheet in just one home fixture all season which was in a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield at the end of December. Fulham have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last 13 Premier League games, home and away they have not been involved in a draw in 14. The Cottagers have conceded at least two goals in each of their last 13 top-flight fixtures.
Everton took a 3-0 home win over Fulham in September
The Toffees are on a three-match winning streak against Fulham
Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings
Fulham are winless in their last four EPL home games against Everton (D2 L2)
Everton are on an upswing of form at the moment with a three-match winning streak going. Within that sequence, they have taken home victories over Chelsea and Arsenal. The last time out on the road they produced a 2-0 victory at West Ham which leaves them with two wins in their last three on the road (L1). Everton’s overall away record this season is W5 D3 L8 which is nothing particularly special. Three of those five away wins have appeared in their last five road fixtures.
Everton have averaged 1.4 goals per away game while they have conceded at an average 1.3. The Toffees have earned a clean sheet in 25% of their road fixtures this season. Overall home and away they have banked a clean sheet in five of their last six played now so they have tightened up dramatically. Each of their last three away wins have been with a clean sheet as well. Everton have conceded 76% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures this season. They have been level at the halftime break in nine of their 16 road games.
This could be an exciting open game. Everton have come into form while Fulham haven’t done a bad job of putting the ball in the back of the net at home recently. Everton to win & both teams to score looks a good fit.

Watford fell to a defeat at Old Trafford against Manchester United on the weekend but gave a really good account of themselves. It was a positive display that they put in and should get an easier time of things in midweek. Fulham will be relegated with a loss at Vicarage Road. Can they keep their Premier League life alive? Read our Watford v Fulham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 31st, 2019 at 4:16 p.m.)
The Hornets produced a fine display at Old Trafford, taking the game to the Red Devils before conceding just before the half hour to a counter attack. Watford had dominated things up until then. They ended up losing 2-1 with Abdoulaye Doucoure getting a late consolation. Back at home Watford are W7 D2 L5 this season, having tallied 19 goals in their campaign at Vicarage Road. They have conceded 19 goals at home also. Four of their five defeats on home soil this season have been against top-six sides.
71% of league games this season at Vicarage Road have gone over 2.5 goals, with Watford taking a clean sheet in 29% of their home games. They are on a two-match winning streak at home, undefeated in their last four there. So they are shaping up well. They have only conceded the one goal in their last three home fixtures. 68% of their home goals scored have come in the second half of fixtures. Each of their last five games, home and away in the top flight have gone over 2.5 goals.
There was a 1-1 draw between them at Craven Cottage in September
Watford are undefeated in their last five against Fulham
Watford are undefeated in their last three at home against the Cottagers
Both teams have scored in one of the last four meetings
The Cottagers will be relegated if they lose this midweek game. They are now on an eight-match losing streak in the top flight, after suffering a 2-0 home defeat against Manchester City on the weekend. Fulham failed to get a single shot on target in the match. The Cottagers on a six-match losing streak on their travels, scoring just the ten goals all season away from Craven Cottage. They have failed to keep things tight at the back with only one clean sheet away from home and an average of 2.5 goals against.
62% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Only two of their fourteen away losses have been by just a one-goal margin. The Cottagers have been trailing at the half time break in 9 of their home games this season. Fulham have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last twelve Premier League games now, and in fact, they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last dozen. Fulham have the worst defensive record in the top flight this season and the worst away record too, going only D2 L14 on their travels.
All signs point to a home win in this one, with Watford looking in pretty positive shape at the moment. Fulham are almost down and out, and their lifeline is likely to be cut in this one. Because the Cottagers have to try and rally, it’s worth back a home win with both teams to score.

Man City 1/7
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:18 p.m.)
The Cottagers lost 2-1 against Liverpool at home in their last league game, giving a decent account of themselves. In their last three home games they have suffered losses against Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool and now with Man City to come, this is such a tough run of fixtures for them. Fulham are at W4 D3 L8 for the season on home soil. Their last home victory was against Brighton back at the end of January.
Fulham have scored 19 and they have conceded at an average of two goals per game exactly. 60% of league fixtures at Craven Cottage have gone over 2.5 goals. The Cottagers have only managed the one home clean sheet this season. Both teams have scored in four for their last five games, but Fulham are currently on a seven-match losing streak. They have lost ten of their last eleven Premier League games (W1).
Manchester City won 3-0 at home over Fulham in September
The Citizens are on a seven-match winning streak against Fulham
The Cottagers have failed to win any of their last 13 against the Citizens
Fulham have not scored in their last five trips to Man City (all competitions)
Man City are on a six-match winning streak in the league. With Liverpool playing Sunday, the Citizens will go back top on Saturday if they win this. They will still have a game in hand over the Reds at the end of the weekend as well. Manchester City are W9 D2 L3 on their league travels this season and they have won all three games away from home against sides currently sat in the bottom six. City scored at least three goals in each of those games.
The Citizens have won their last two away games, both with clean sheets at Everton and Bournemouth. They have produced a total of 26 goals in their fourteen away games and have conceded just the nine. Only 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals, City earning a clean sheet in 57% of their road games. Manchester City have been leading at the break in 9 of their 14 away games. Man City are on a 14 match scoring streak, home and away. They have scored 62% of their away goals in the first half of matches.
City have eased themselves through away games against sides near the foot of the table. This may be the easiest of them all with Fulham’s leaky defence. Manchester City to win to nil looks a good fit.

Fulham have slumped to six straight league defeats and there doesn’t appear to be a way out of their troubles. Games like this is the last thing they need. Liverpool will fancy their chances of snapping out of a slip in away form in this one. Read our Fulham v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8.10 p.m.)
The Cottagers slipped to their sixth straight league defeat last weekend. That was in a 3-1 defeat out at Leicester. It leaves them in heaps and heaps of relegation trouble. As a positive they have scored in three of their last four games and in their last home game, they did put in a good spirited performance in a 2-1 loss against neighbours Chelsea. Fulham have lost all four of their home games this season against sides currently in the top six.
They did score in all but one of those though. Fulham’s home form for the season is W4 D3 L7. In total Fulham have scored 18 home goals, but they have conceded at an average of two goals per home game. They have been stuck on only the one home clean sheet this season. Home away, Fulham have no clean sheet in ten, conceding at least two goals in each of those ten games. They have the third-worst home record in the top flight currently.
Liverpool took a 2-0 home win over Fulham in November
The Reds are on a five-match winning streak against Fulham
Liverpool have won their last two visits to Craven Cottage
Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings
The Reds earned a good home win over Burnley last weekend. They then went out in midweek and produced a fantastic display to win at Bayern Munich in the Champions League. But they have only drawn each of their last three Premier League away games, at West Ham, Man Utd and Everton. Their overall away form for the season is W9 D5 L1 and with title rivals Man City not in league action this weekend, Liverpool go top with three points.
Liverpool have averaged 1.6 goals per away game this season, conceding just the eight goals in their fifteen away games. Only 40% of their away games have made it over the 2.5 goal line because of Liverpool’s great defence. Each of their last four away games have gone under the goal line. The Reds have earned a clean sheet in 53% of away games. The Reds are undefeated in four away from home and in nine, home and away in the top flight. Liverpool have scored two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of games.
Liverpool should have enough to expose the creaking defence of Fulham. The Reds should be able to get the win by a margin of a couple goals you would imagine. This is a good game for them right now.

They will be favourites to get three points out of this fixture at home on the weekend as they face the struggling Fulham. Read our Leicester v Fulham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on 7th March 2019 at 6:07 p.m.)
The Foxes suffered a last-minute defeat out at Watford last weekend with Brendan Rodgers in charge of the first time. That continued their pretty poor form. Leicester are now W1 D1 L6 in their last eight Premier League games. Their home record for the season in the top flight is at W5 D2 L7 and in that sequence of games have only come up with the sixteen goals. There seems to be plenty of issues with them defensively as well as they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last eight played, home and away.
They have conceded in each of their last seven home fixtures as well have Leicester. 61% of the goals that they have conceded at home have been in the second half of fixtures. Over the last eight rounds of Premier League action Fulham are the only side to have picked up fewer points in that span than Leicester have. Surprisingly Leicester have actually only managed to open the scoring in just three of their home games this season. Six of their tens wins recorded this season have been by a one-goal margin.
There was a 1-12 draw between the two clubs at Craven Cottage in December
Fulham have lost just one of their last ten against Leicester
Leicester have won one of their last five on home soil against Fulham in all competitions
Four of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Fulham lost against neighbours Chelsea last weekend at home with Scott Parker in charge for the first time. They did give a pretty spirited account of themselves though it has to be said. They ended up losing 2-1. That left them on a five-match losing streak in the Premier League and still a long way from salvation. The Cottagers are yet to have enjoyed an away win in the top flight this season either, posting only a D2 L13 record on their travels. They have only come up with the nine goals on the road as well which clearly hasn’t helped.
Fulham have returned just one goal from their last three away games. Their last away game was a big relegation scrap against Southampton which Fulham lost 2-0 in a really tame display. Just once this season have Fulham recorded an away clean sheet. They have conceded an average of 2.5 goals per away game this season as well. In eleven of their 15 away games have Fulham been losing at the half time break (W1 D3). The Cottagers have conceded at least two goals in each for their last five games away from Craven Cottage and in each of their last nine, home and away.
We feel that there could be enough for Fulham to go and get something out of this. The Foxes haven’t been great at home and Fulham looked so much better and positive under Scott Parker last weekend against higher quality opponents in Chelsea. Draw.

Fulham are showing no signs whatsoever in putting together form to have a shot at survival. In fact, they look as if they are lacking a bit of fight. Chelsea meanwhile recorded a much-needed win for themselves in midweek, taking out rivals Tottenham. Read our Fulham v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 10:34 p.m.)
Fulham put in another limp performance in midweek as they suffered a loss against Southampton. That is a four-match losing streak that they are on at the moment. They have lost six of their last seven (W1). The Cottagers are heading into the weekend eleven points from safety. Their home form for the season is W4 D3 L6 and they have scored a total of seventeen goals in those games. They have conceded at an average of two goals per home game though, and that has been their problem.
They have lost their three home games played this season against current top-five sides and in fact, all four of those home wins have been against sides currently in the bottom six with them. In their last three at Craven Cottage Fulham are W1 L2, conceding seven goals in those games. They have managed to take just the one home clean sheet this season in the top flight. Home and away Fulham have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last eight played. They have conceded at least two goals in each of those eight games in that sequence.
Chelsea were 2-0 winners at home over Fulham earlier this season
Chelsea are on a four-match winning streak against Fulham
The Cottagers have failed to score in four of their last five against the Blues
Fulham are without a win in eighteen games against Chelsea
Chelsea bounced back from their EFL Cup final defeat with a 2-0 home win over London rivals Tottenham in midweek. That was a big boost for them and it continued their strong home form. They haven’t been so great out on their travels through. The Blues have lost their last three away games, conceding a total of twelve goals without scoring themselves. So they will be looking for this opportunity against their local rivals to snap out of their poor away form. Overall this season Chelsea are at W7D1 L5 on their travels.
Chelsea have won all six of their away games against sides currently 13th or lower in the table. The Blues have averaged 1.5 goals per away game this season, and 77% of their road fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 38% of their away games, it has just been their recent form which has really gone downhill. Both teams have scored in just 38% of their away games. Chelsea haven’t been involved in an away draw in ten. The Blues have opened the scoring in eight of their road games and only two sides have a better defensive record than they have in the EPL.
Fulham look well out of touch and short of ideas and quality. Chelsea should be lifted after their win over Spurs. We can only look towards the away win cropping up in this one. Chelsea to win to nil will have its appeal as well.

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
The revival of Southampton has just gone a little bit sour after having suffered back-to-back defeats against Cardiff and then Arsenal. It leaves Southampton winless in their last four Premier League games (D2 L2). The home form of the Saints is W2 D6 L5 this season. They are undefeated in their last two there after having beaten Everton and then playing out a draw with Crystal Palace. Southampton have scored 15 goals in their 13 home fixtures so far. 69% of League games at St Marys this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
There are still clear defensive problems for Southampton as they have taken only the one clean sheet since the beginning of November last year. They have conceded in each of their last eight Premier League home games. But as a positive, they have scored in each of those eight games as well. They have no clean sheet in their last six home and away. Almost two-thirds of the goals which Southampton have conceded at home this season have been in the second half of matches. Bottom side Huddersfield are the only side who have claimed fewer home points this season in the Premier League than Southampton have.
Fulham earned a 3-2 home win over Southampton in November
The Saints had won the three previous meetings between them
Each of Southampton’s last three wins over Fulham have been with a clean sheet
Fulham are winless in seven at Southampton
Absolutely nothing is working for Fulham at the moment as they suffered their third straight Premier League defeat on the weekend. They made a trip to West Ham and suffered a 3-1 reverse. Fulham are still looking for their first away win of the season having lost 12 of 14 played. A the cottagers are currently on a four-match losing streak away from home and have taken just the one point from their last 12 road fixtures. It has been that bad from them. Fulham have scored just nine away goals all season, but have conceded at an average of 2.5 per game.
Fulham only have one-way clean sheet all season and 64% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. 43% of their away games have made it over 3.5 goals. Six of Fulham’s 10 away defeats this season have been by a two goal margin. Home and away they don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last seven played and they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four road fixtures. Fulham have also been losing at the halftime break in 10 of their 14 away games. The Cottagers have the worst away record and the worst defensive record in this season’s top-flight.
This should be a big game for Southampton as they push on and collect three points against Fulham. The Cottagers just don’t appear to have any kind of solution to their many problems. Home win.
