Fulham & Brighton & Hove Albion meet on Match-day 5
Brighton, remain in contention for Champion’s League qualification, sitting in fourth place and seven places above eleventh placed Fulham, going into the clash.
Fulham have so far accrued five points in this season of the Premier League
Also, Fulham will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose one game this Premier League season. Their position is eleventh in the League and they have five points, that is, 1W, 1L and 2D having won one game, drawn two games, and lost one game.
When Fulham host Brighton, they will do so on the back of one win and one dart on their own ground.
Fulham will see 8 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Good Attacking Performance
They have a good scoring rate of six goals (5 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Aleksandar Mitrovic (4), Bobby Reid (1), and Joao Palhinha (1). Teams that leak goals on a consistent basis, don’t tend to win anything, such is the situation with Fulham so far, having conceded 6 goals in their last matches so far.
Fulham are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Marco Silva is concerned that Tuesday’s fixture could see him without two of his key players.
With the Premier League season well into its stride, Brighton & Hove Albion have managed to gain 10 points
Leeds United were beaten 1-0 at American Express Community Stadium, the last time that Brighton played.
Also, can Brighton extend their incredible run of two wins? Now they have 3 matches won, 0 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fourth place, with a total of 10 points having won three meetings and drawn one game.
Playing away from home, Brighton have won two meetings.
A win in this fixture would take Brighton & Hove Albion’s points to 13 in the League.
Brighton may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
