Fulham vs Aston Villa: Preview

Fulham form analysis

The Cottagers has had decent form in their recent Premier League campaign. It started by coming from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 at home on December 31st, with goals from R. Jiménez and B. De Cordova-Reid sealing the win. However, on January 13th Fulham suffered a 1-0 away loss to Chelsea after conceding a C. Palmer penalty. Fulham bounced back with a solid 0-0 home draw against Everton on January 31st.

On February 3rd away at Burnley, Fulham drew 2-2 after going 2-0 up through João Palhinha and Rodrigo Muniz before conceding twice to D. Fofana. Most recently on February 10th, Fulham earned an important 3-1 home win over Bournemouth – B. De Cordova-Reid, Rodrigo Muniz and M. Senesi scored for the Cottagers. Overall, Fulham have been solid defensively and clinical in attack. Maintaining this balance will be key if Fulham hope to avoid relegation this season.

Aston Villa form analysis

Aston Villa has been in an inconsistent form in their last five league matches. Starting with a 3-2 home win over Burnley on December 30th, with goals from L. Bailey, M. Diaby and Douglas Luiz securing victory. However, momentum stalled with a 0-0 away draw at Everton on January 14th. Things worsened on January 31st as Villa lost 3-1 at home to Newcastle, only scoring via O. Watkins. Looking to bounce back, on February 3rd Villa won 5-0 away at Sheffield United courtesy of goals from J. McGinn, O. Watkins, L. Bailey, Y. Tielemans and Álex Moreno. But inconsistency continued on February 11th with a 2-1 home loss to Manchester United, going ahead through R. Højlund before conceding to Douglas Luiz and S. McTominay. Overall, Villa have struggled for consistency but shown attacking threat. Tighter defense could help convert their scoring into more regular positive results.

Fulham vs Aston Villa: Prediction

The last five games at this stadium have witnessed almost an average of three goals per game. This figure is well over three in five of Villa’s previous away fixtures. Three goals is the least I expect from this fixture.

The Cottagers have been formidable at home with just one loss in seven home league fixtures. I would have them as favourites as they face a club with two losses and just four points in 2024.

Over 2.75 goals @ 1.83 odds.

Double chance: Fulham @ 1.69 odds.
