This Saturday sees Fulham go head to head with Bournemouth at Craven Cottage – Kick-off 3:00pm GMT.

As it stands, Bournemouth will go to Craven Cottage in eighth place, Fulham are currently in ninth.

Fulham have 11 points to their name, going into this tie

Fulham will take a huge positive from their recent 3-1 win against West Ham United at London Stadium.

Also, Marco Silva knows that a run of four losses in six meetings for his Fulham side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. Now they have 3 matches won, 4 games lost and 2 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in ninth place, with a total of 11 points having won three fixtures, drawn two games, and lost four meetings.

Playing at home, Fulham have won two fixtures, drawn one game, and lost one game.

A win in this fixture would take Fulham’s points to 14 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

Fulham have a good scoring record this season, with 14 netted so far (13 from open play and one penalty). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Aleksandar Mitrovic (6), Bobby Reid (2), and Joao Palhinha (2). Fulham have a very poor defensive record, having conceded 18 goals in their previous matches.

Fulham’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Marco Silva, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.

This season’s Premier League campaign, has so far seen Bournemouth achieve 12 points

With a win in their previous game, (2-1) against Leicester City, Bournemouth will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Also, with three draws in five meetings, Manager Gary O’Neil has plenty to ponder, going into the next match, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With an eighth position in the league and 3 wins, 3 losses and 3 draws, they currently have 12 points in the League having won three meetings, drawn three fixtures, and lost three games.

Playing away from home, Bournemouth have won one game, drawn one game, and lost two matches.

A win in this fixture, would take Bournemouth’s points from 12 to 15, so far this season.

Bournemouth’s squad will likely be depleted of five of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.
