Fulham vs Burnley - Premier League Preview and Odds

August 26, 2018 16:00pm - Craven Cottage

Premier League

Fulham will look for their first win since their return to the top flight when they host Burnley at Craven Cottage on Sunday. Meanwhile, the visitors have just a single point to their name and will see this game as chance to get their first win n the board.

Many expected big things from Fulham following their £100m summer spending spree, but they have yet to earn a point since returning to the Premier League after a four-year absence. They lost 2-0 at home to Crystal Palace on the opening day before falling 3-1 away to Spurs.

With so many new faces at the club, there are mitigating factors in their slow start, but they will hope to at least get a point on the board this weekend.

Tim Ream has a thigh injury and will miss out along with Alfie Mawson who is recovering from knee surgery.

Burnley haven`t had the best of starts, the 3-1 home defeat to Watford of particular concern. To add to their burden, they arrive here on the back of a mid-week trip to Olympiakos Piraeus in the Europa League. They lost that game 3-1 to make it two defeats in a week for Sean Dyche`s men.

Possible XIs

Fulham: Fabri, Fosu-Mensah, Chambers, Le Marchand, Bryan, Cairney, Anguissa, Seri, Sessegnon, Mitrovic, Kamara

Burnley: Hart, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward, Lennon, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson, Hendrick, Wood

Recent Form (League)

Fulham: LL

Burnley: LDLLD

Betting odds and tips

Burnley have not won any of their last seven Premier League matches, a run stretching back to April. That will give hope to Fulham who need to get their season up and running.

With both sides keen to avoid defeat, a draw looks a good bet.

The Draw is available at 12/5.
