Fulham and Crystal Palace both sit in the top half of the Premier League standings at this stage of the season. However, the winners on Saturday could move into the top six in the table. Palace will have home field advantage, as they look to respond following a late defeat against Aston Villa on the road last weekend.
The winning goal in that fixture was scored in injury time, which now means three of the last four goals that the Eagles have conceded have come in the 90th minute or later. But, they boast an excellent home record ahead of this fixture, as they have lost just two of their last 12 at Selhurst Park.
It wasn’t the most convincing showing by Fulham last weekend, but they edged to a 1-0 home success against Luton Town to bounce back after a heavy loss against Man City. The Cottagers were 3-0 winners in this exact fixture last season, but they haven’t won back-to-back away games against Palace since 1978.
Fulham also have a poor record in London derbies, as they have picked up just one win from their last 20 away matches. Over that period, they have lost on 14 occasions, with their only win coming in this exact fixture last term. But, Fulham are unbeaten in their last three against the Eagles.
Crystal Palace vs Fulham Prediction
Fulham have struggled in away matches against London opposition in the Premier League over recent seasons. That appears to be a challenging trend to overlook this weekend, meaning that the preference is for the Eagles.
