Fulham will say goodbye to the Premier League
The only question in this match is whether Fulham will be relegated after him.
Or they will only continue with their agony in the Premier League if they win.
They are in 18th place and 9 points less than today's opponent with only 4 rounds left until the end.
Fulham are the weakest hosts of the season with only 2 wins. There is no other way, since only 9 goals have been scored in 17 games at home.
They are also the team with the worst results from the last 8 matches with only 4 of the possible 24 points won.
In their last 2 games they were totally outplayed by xG data from Arsenal and Chelsea.
Midfielder Harrison Reed is injured and will most likely miss the match against Burnley.
Burnley is confident of survival
Burnley, although in 17th place, need only 4 points to be mathematically guaranteed a place in the elite of England.
In fact, they have never been in real danger of relegation during the season.
And this despite the fact that they are in the top 5 of the weakest both hosts and guests in the Premier League.
As such, they are in the lower half of the standings for the least scored and in the upper half for the most goals conceded.
In their last 3 games, only Wolverhampton have won xG .
Apart from them, this year Burnley achieved victories over Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Everton as guests.
They have no staffing problems.
Prediction for Fulham - Burnley
It is clear that these two teams are in bad shape.
Bookmakers , however, put Fulham as favorites. As if only because they only need a victory.
And I have said other times that this is no argument. Provided that the other team is motivated.
Furthermore, it is not at all reliable to believe that a team like Fulham can suddenly transform and succeed.
In matches of this type, the experience of the players is of great importance.
And those of Burnley certainly have much more than Fulham, who are the youngest squad in the English Premier League.
And the guests showed that they know how to keep everyone at the bottom of the standings.
Burnley have few wins. But 3 of their last 4 as a guest had a difference of 3 or more goals.
In January, but in a match for the FA Cup, they won exactly at this stadium with the classic 3-0.
The team under more pressure is that of the hosts. And the value is at stake for the guests.
Medium-sized bet for this prediction.
