Fulham vs Crystal Palace

, KO: 15:00 Apr 27, 2024, Craven Cottage
Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace will be targeting a fourth Premier League win on the spin on Saturday afternoon when they face London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The Eagles are enjoying a new lease of life under Oliver Glasner, who has steered his side to victory in four of his nine games in charge thus far.

Last time out, Palace capped off a terrific 10 days by seeing off Newcastle with a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park.

Whilst a top-half finish looks out of reach, another victory this weekend would move Crystal Palace level on points with latest opponents Fulham.

Three losses from their last four league games has hampered the Cottagers’ hopes of a top-ten finish, though they are only three points adrift of tenth-placed Bournemouth as things stand.

Marco Silva's men go into this game off the back of a 3-1 loss at home to Liverpool last Sunday, a defeat that leaves the hosts housed in 13th spot in the standings.

How the bookies view it: Whites to get back to winning ways

Despite winning just one of their last five league games, Fulham are 21/20 favourites on Bet 365 to bank all three points on Saturday.

Crystal Palace look overpriced at 13/5 (Bet 365) to extend their winning run to four matches while the draw is trading at 27/10 (William Hill).

Recent head to head: Close contest in the capital

Three of the last four meetings between the two sides have ended level, including a 0-0 stalemate at Selhurst Park back in September.

However, it's worth noting that Crystal Palace have avoided defeat in each of their last four visits to Craven Cottage.

Players to watch: Mateta man of the moment

Jean-Philippe Mateta is revelling in a late season renaissance under Oliver Glasner, with the French forward bagging a brace in each of his last two outings for the Eagles.

 As such, Mateta makes plenty of appeal to score on Saturday at 13/5 on Bet 365. Whilst that price is an enticing one, I would be more inclined to opt for the in-form Palace hitman in the To Score or Assist market at an equally eye-catching 15/8 on PaddyPower.

As for Fulham, they will be hoping top-scorer Rodrigo Muniz can end his four-game Premier League goal drought against the Eagles this weekend. The Brazilian can be backed at 9/5 on Bet 365 to make the net bulge.

Predicted lineups

Fulham should have a clean bill of health for the visit of Crystal Palace, with the only slight doubt being veteran winger Willian.

After starting on the bench in midweek, Crystal Palace livewire Michael Olise could be restored to the starting line-up at Craven Cottage.

Fulham: Leno; Castagne, Adarabioyo, Bassey, Robinson; Palhinha, Lukic; Iwobi, Pereira, Willian; Muniz

Crystal Palace: Henderson; Clyne, Richards, Andersen; Munoz, Wharton, Hughes, Mitchell; Olise, Mateta, Eze

Anything else catch the eye? Consecutive Castagne Cards

Timothy Castagne picked up a card in Fulham’s 3-1 defeat at home to Liverpool last Sunday and the Belgian looks worth backing to go into the book again here at 6/1 (UniBet).

Admittedly, the Whites right-back is not exactly renowned for being a card magnet, but he should have his hands full again this weekend given the pace and flair that Palace possess in wide areas.
