Fulham vs Brighton & Hove Albion

, KO: 15:00 Mar 2, 2024, Craven Cottage
Brighton & Hove Albion

Fulham host Brighton & Hove Albion in a Premier League fixture on Saturday as they look to maintain their push for a place in the top half. The Cottagers will be feeling confident following a run of good results and should have the edge over Brighton, who have struggled on their recent travels.

The task for Fulham for the rest of the season will be to make a late push for a place in the top half. They are currently five points off the pace and will be keen to use Saturday’s clash as a springboard for their quest.

Fulham have shown some good form in recent weeks, losing just once in their last five matches. They claimed a 2-1 victory at Manchester United last time out in the Premier League with Calvin Bassey and Alex Iwobi getting the goals.

The Cottagers have also impressed at home lately and are unbeaten in six of their last eight Premier League matches in front of their fans. Among the results for Marco Silva’s men in that run is a 2-1 victory over Arsenal while they also triumphed 3-1 over Bournemouth.

Sitting seventh on the standings, Brighton have a different target from Fulham as they are pushing for a European finish. However, they have been erratic in recent weeks, claiming just two wins from their last six matches.

Brighton head into Saturday’s clash winless in their last two matches. First they were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton last time out in the Premier League before suffering a 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in an FA Cup fifth round clash on Wednesday.

The defeat to Wolves highlights a poor record on their travels having lost three of their last four away matches across all competitions. However, in-between those losses is a 5-0 victory at Sheffield United.

How the bookies view it

The bookies appear to be expecting a closely fought encounter with a victory for Fulham priced at 7/4 by bet365 while Unibet is offering odds of 8/5 for a Brighton victory. A draw is set at odds at 5/2 by Paddy Power.

Head to head

Fulham and Brighton have seven wins each and five draws from 19 previous meetings. Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in October, although the Cottagers have won three of the last four meetings at Craven Cottage.

Players to watch

Rodrigo Muniz was not on target last time out at Old Trafford but remains one of the most in-form players for Fulham. The striker has found the net four times in the last four matches and is priced at 2/1 with bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

With Joao Pedro still doubtful for Brighton, Simon Adingra could be worth keeping an eye on. The forward grabbed a brace in the last away fixture and is priced at 11/4 by BoyleSports to get on the score sheet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Both teams were on target in the reverse fixture and a similar outcome is priced at 4/7 with Unibet. Fulham have seen over 2.5 goals in their last four matches and a repeat is priced at 4/6 with Unibet while over 3.5 goals is valued at 13/8 with bet365.

Fulham have scored first in three of their last four matches and could be backed to grab the opening goal at 21/20 by bet365.
