Fulham vs Newcastle United

Fulham and Newcastle United are set to square off at Craven Cottage in a tasty-looking Premier League match-up.

Seemingly frustrated with his side’s flagrant attitude, Fulham boss Marco Silva opted for a radical move, making a triple change only 33 minutes into the Cottagers’ midweek trip to Nottingham Forest, only to finish on the receiving end of a 3-1 scoreline. With little to play for during the remainder of the season, Silva’s men have fallen off the rails, as evidenced by a hard-earned 3-3 draw at dead-last Sheffield United last weekend. However, Craven Cottage forms the ideal backdrop for Fulham’s bid to flip the script, as they’ve sealed three wins in four home league games since the start of February (L1), netting precisely three goals in each success. That said, they’ve lost their last four competitive home meetings with Newcastle by 2+ goal margins!

Newcastle’s astonishing run in Fulham’s backyard is the perfect narrative as they endeavor to bounce back from a gut-wrenching 1-1 home draw against Everton in midweek. Indeed, Eddie Howe’s charges have blown hot and cold across their last three Premier League outings (W1, D1, L1), all of which featured at least one goal beyond the 85th minute, highlighting the potential for plenty of late drama. The Magpies’ well-documented form woes on the road have intensified over the past couple of months, with Newcastle failing to land a victory in 90 minutes on their last four competitive travels (D1, L3). All those losses saw the Tyne Army concede 2+ goals, casting doubt on their effort to keep Fulham at bay for the fourth time in their last five visits to Craven Cottage.
