Fulham host Burnley on Monday night as they go in search of much-needed points in their battle for Premier League survival. Here’s our preview.
Fulham hope to keep survival dream alive
Fulham have gone winless since the beginning of March when turning over Liverpool at Anfield and they step into hosting duties against Burnley as the favourites. The London side will be all out for a win in the hope of securing three-points to keep their survival dream alive. Such hopes will rely heavily on the results of other sides at the bottom end of the table and one of those is Burnley.
Burnley currently sit nine-points outside the relegation zone but as has been seen countless times at this stage of the season, anything can happen on the run in. With a Fulham victory that gap would close to just six-points and the nerves could kick in at Turf Moor. Fulham are 6/5 to take the full allocation of points at Craven Cottage and Scott Parker’s side will be aware of the task at hand and after some promising individual performances made in their last start against Chelsea, the fight will truly be on.

Burnley travel down to the capital the 12/5 underdogs and Sean Dyche’s side have been in mixed form recently. Their last game saw defeat against West Ham when before that they were last seen beating Wolves 4-0 on the back of three straight defeats. In a game of this standing, it is worth giving mention to the draw at 23/10 as Fulham will be attacking from the outset in search of an early lead, Burnley will comfortably walk away from the fixture sharing the honours.
One thing to be sure of is that Fulham’s 2021/22 season relies exclusively on the outcome of this fixture and that’s what football is about.
