Fulham vs Aston Villa

, KO: 15:00 Feb 17, 2024, Craven Cottage
Aston Villa

Aston Villa travel to Fulham for a Premier League fixture on Saturday with both teams looking a bit out of sorts lately. The Villans appear to be doing better on their travels and with Fulham also solid at Craven Cottage, both teams look set to cancel each other out.

Fulham are coming off a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth in their previous Premier League fixture. Rodrigo Muniz netted a brace after Bobby De Cordova-Reid had opened the scoring early in the first half.

That was an important victory for Fulham, who had been winless in their previous six matches across all competitions. However, there have been a few draws lately as they have been held three times in their last five matches.

One positive for Fulham is that Craven Cottage remains solid as they have lost just once in their last seven Premier League home matches. They have picked up five wins in that run, including a 2-1 victory over Arsenal.

Aston Villa travel to Craven Cottage off the back of a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in their previous Premier League fixture. They looked to be headed for a draw following Douglas Luiz’s second half equaliser but went on to concede the winner four minutes from time.

Things appear to be spiralling slightly for Aston Villa in recent weeks as they have picked up just one win from their last six matches across all competitions. They are slowly losing ground in the top four race having dropped to fifth on the table, one point behind Tottenham Hotspur.

Aston Villa’s only win in their recent poor run was a 5-0 victory at Sheffield United which highlights a decent record away from home. Unai Emery’s men are unbeaten in five of their last six Premier League matches on the road.
