          Fulham vs Bournemouth: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

          Fulham welcome Bournemouth to Craven Cottage in a mid-table Premier League clash this weekend. Both sides will be aiming to make a push into the top half of the table.

          • Date: 10/02/24
          • Kick-off time: 15:00
          • Venue: Craven Cottage

          Three points and one place separate these two teams in the Premier League table. Fulham currently sit in 13th place, after Bournemouth overtook them with last weekend’s victory over Nottingham Forest. The Cherries, led by Andoni Iraola, suffered through a difficult start to the season, but a run which included six wins in seven during November and December saw them quickly climb the standings. As a result, they can confidently look ahead to the teams above them, rather than looking over the shoulders below.

          Fulham’s latest struggles have not harmed their league position significantly, as they still have hopes of keeping pace with those in the top half. A victory for Marco Silva’s side could see them leapfrog their opponents and have the likes of Newcastle and Wolves in their sights. Lose, and they may need to take notice of the teams creeping up behind them.

          Armando Broja was Fulham’s big deadline-day signing, as he joined on loan from Chelsea. The hope is that the striker will take the pressure off Raul Jimenez as he recovers from injury, and give the team another attacking option. The Albanian has scored just one goal in the league this season, but will be expecting greater production as his minutes increase. Jimenez is their top scorer with five, so they will need the youngster to hit the ground running.

          Bournemouth will be looking to Dominic Solanke to lead their attack. The Englishman has enjoyed a fantastic campaign so far, scoring 13 goals and earning a player of the month award for December. They are a side who generally struggle for goals in the league, with their 30 only better than five sides. Their next top scorer is Antoine Semenyo with just three, so Solanke is an absolutely crucial part of his side’s success.

          These two sides have faced each other nine times this century, though the first meeting did not come until 2014 in the Championship. It is a fixture which has been largely dominated by Bournemouth, with Fulham recording just one win in 2019, an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty earning the visitors a 1-0 win. The Cherries have won on five occasions, the biggest being a 5-1 victory at Craven Cottage in 2015.

          The reverse fixture was a comfortable 3-0 win for Bournemouth on Boxing Day, as Justin Kluivert, Solanke and Luis Sinisterra secured the three points for Iraola’s side.

          Form Guide (Last Five Games)

          Fulham Form Guide:

          In their last five games, Fulham have drawn three and lost two. Despite picking up a couple of wins around the new year, Marco Silva’s side have struggled greatly as of late, failing to pick up a win since their FA Cup third-round victory against Rotherham at the beginning of January. Their sharp downturn in form started with a narrow West London derby defeat at Chelsea. A Cole Palmer penalty just before half-time was enough for their neighbours to take three points. They followed this up with a Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg tie at home to Liverpool, a game which they had to win by two to make the final after they lost the return leg 2-1 at Anfield. An early goal from Luis Diaz put the visitors in control, before an Issa Diop strike put them level. Another goal was needed to take it to extra-time, but they could not find the back of the net.

          Three days later, they were knocked out of the FA Cup to fellow Premier League side Newcastle, with goals from Sean Longstaff and Dan Burn separating the teams. In desperate need of three points to get them back on track, they faced relegation-battling Everton at home. However, they could not find a way past Jordan Pickford as they dropped more points, drawing 0-0.

          Their most recent outing was a trip to 19th place Burnley, and it looked like they were finally going to get the win they needed. They raced into a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes as Joao Palhinha and Rodrigo Muniz found the back of the net. It wasn’t meant to be, though, as substitute David Datro Fofana scored a brace, including a 91st-minute equaliser, to salvage a point for the Clarets.

          Bournemouth Form Guide:

          In their last five games, Bournemouth have won twice, drawn twice and lost once. Their most recent game saw them take on Nottingham Forest at home, in which they drew 1-1. Philip Billing opened the scoring, before Callum Hudson-Odoi’s strike put Forest level.

          It means they are winless in four league games, their last victory being a 3-0 win against Fulham on Boxing Day. They began this stretch of fixtures with one of their two victories, as they put aside Championship side QPR 3-2 to advance to the next round of the FA Cup. They scored three goals in 21 second-half minutes to overturn a 2-0 deficit. This result earned them a fourth-round tie with Swansea City, a game that was much more comfortable for Bournemouth. Five unanswered goals before half-time confirmed their passage to the fifth round.

          In between these two cup ties, they faced Liverpool at the Vitality Stadium. Whilst they managed to hold their visitors to 0-0 at the break, their resistance was soon broken as Darwin Nunez opened the scoring four minutes after the restart. The Reds went on to win 4-0.

          A 1-1 draw at West Ham gave them their first point of 2024, though they were disappointed not to leave with more having taken the lead after just three minutes through Dominic Solanke. It was a very even game with the Hammers netting the equaliser from the spot in the second half.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Fulham have endured a terrible run of form as of late, with no wins since the beginning of January. Bournemouth have struggled in the league of late but will be confident of leaving with at least a point. We expect there to be little to split the two sides. We Predict: Fulham 1-1 Bournemouth
