Burnley will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 0-2 FA Cup defeat in their last game at the hands of Bournemouth.
In that game, Burnley had 50% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Bournemouth got 9 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Sam Surridge (21') and Junior Stanislas (88') scored for Bournemouth.
It has been seldom in recent times where Burnley have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that The Clarets have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 9 goals on the way.
Ahead of this meeting, Burnley are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches at home.
Last time out, Fulham drew 0-0 in the Premier League match with West Ham United.
In that game, Fulham managed 60% possession and 20 attempts at goal with 2 on target. On the other side, West Ham United got 8 attempts on goal with 1 on target.
It is worth noting that Fulham have failed to get amongst the goals in their past six clashes, recording the unsatisfactory return of just 3. In those fixtures, The Cottagers have also seen the overall goal aggregate against them equal 9. Such a trend might not be carried forward into this next game, though.
Our feeling is that Fulham and Burnley may well both score, with little between these two teams. Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. That’s why our selection here is for a tight encounter with a 1-1 scoreline when all is said and done.
