Fulham vs Burnley prediction, preview, team news and more


Fulham are set to play host to Burnley at Craven Cottage on Monday for their latest English Premier League game.

Fulham come into this game on the back of a 2-0 loss to Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea last Saturday at Stamford Bridge. A brace from young German forward Kai Havertz sealed the deal for Chelsea.

Burnley, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to David Moyes’ West Ham United on Tuesday at Turf Moor. A first-half brace from striker Michail Antonio secured the win for West Ham United. Former Leeds United striker and New Zealand international Chris Wood scored the consolation goal for Burnley.

Fulham vs Burnley Prediction

Fulham are 18th in the English Premier League table, nine points behind 17th-placed Burnley. Scott Parker’s side have lost four of their last five league games, and will need a miracle if they are to play in the Premier League next season.

Burnley, on the other hand, invested little on player recruitment last summer and have once again relied on Sean Dyche’s wizardry. Like Fulham they have lost four of their last five league games, but they should have enough to stay clear of the relegation zone.

A draw seems to be on the cards.

Prediction: Fulham 0-0 Burnley
