fulham1819Time is running out for Fulham to preserve their English Premier League status and that makes Monday's home fixture against Burnley a must win game.

 

 

 

Fulham v Burnley

 

Fulham remain in the drop zone and 9 points behind their opponents here who are fourth from bottom. After this Fulham visit Southampton and Manchester United before they finish up at home to Newcastle, they may well have to win all 4 of those matches and even that may not be enough to avoid the drop.

 

Fulham have taken just 1 point from the last 18 available, a 1-1 draw at Arsenal and last time out they lost 2-0 at Chelsea. They have lost their last 4 home matches, scoring just 1 goal in the process as Spurs, Manchester City, Leeds and Wolves all left Craven Cottage with maximum points.

 

Burnley have won 1 and lost 4 of their last 5 league games, most recently going down 2-1 at home to West Ham. They did thrash 10 man Wolves 4-0 in their most recent road trip and they also won at Everton last month. Burnley's last 6 league games have delivered for backers of over 2.5 goals and 7 of the last 8 have seen both sides find the net.

 

Head to Head

 

The first meeting this season was staged on 17th February and it finished all square at 1-1 with both goals coming early in the second half.

 

 

The Betting

 

Fulham are currently trading at around 5/4 to win the game with the draw at 23/10 and Burnley can be also backed at around 23/10

 

A game of 3 goals or more is even money and it's 8/10 for both teams to score.

The Verdict:

 

This looks a tricky start to the week to me but in the circumstances where even a point would look short of what Fulham require I think we might see a goal in both halves of football.

 

Bet: Goal scored in both halves? (yes) at 0.77/1
