            Fulham vs Brighton Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Craven Cottage is the venue for a mid-table Premier League Clash on Saturday afternoon as Fulham are set to host Brighton and Hove Albion.

            The hosts currently find themselves in 12th position in the league after gaining 32 points from their 26 league outings this season, of which, the Cottagers have won 9, drawn 5 and lost 12.

            Fulham come into this weekend on the back of a mixed run of form which has seen them record 2 defeats, 2 draws and two victories out of their last six league games. The Cottagers have drawn against relegation threatened Burnley and Everton and lost to Aston Villa and Chelsea.

            Last weekend, Fulham recorded a historic victory as they defeated Manchester United in dramatic fashion. The Cottagers took the lead in the second half through a powerful header from Calvin Bassey.

            United equalised shortly after with a Harry Maguire header, but their joy was short-lived. In the sixth minute of stoppage time, Alex Iwobi netted the winner for Fulham, sending the travelling fans into raptures and leaving the Red Devils deflated.

            Brighton are currently sitting in 7th place in the Premier League table and are on track to achieve a place in European football for successive years. The Seagulls have gained 39 points from their 26 league games this season.

            In the Seagulls last game, they shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw against Everton. Branthwaite's thunderbolt free-kick gave the Toffees the lead, but Dunk's last-gasp header for Brighton snatched a point in a tight encounter at Goodison Park.

            Brighton are set to travel to the Molineux on Wednesday evening as they face Wolves in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Given that they only have two days to recover before Saturday’s game, this may provide Fulham with an advantage on Saturday.

            The fixture of Brighton vs Fulham has a long and storied history, with the two sides having first met in 1928. In total, these two sides have faced each other on 55 occasions, with Fulham having the better record winning 25 whilst Brighton have won 22.

            In recent years, it is Fulham who have dominated this fixture and the Cottagers are undefeated in this fixture since 2017. Notably, Fulham have never been defeated by Brighton in the Premier league having won three and drawn four.

            Brighton and Fulham played out a 1-1 draw when these sides met in the reverse fixture at the Amex Stadium. Evan Ferguson opened the scoring for the Seagulls in the first half, but a stunning second-half strike from João Palhinha secured a point for the visitors. Both sides pushed for a winner late on, but the spoils were shared in an entertaining encounter.

            These sides are very evenly matched at the bookies ahead of this weekend’s game, however it is Brighton who are narrowly favoured and currently priced @ 29/10, whilst a home win for Fulham is priced @ 17/10 and a draw is @ 13/5.

            We are backing Fulham to win and Under 2.5 Goals in the match because of their impressive record against Brighton in the Premier League. Having not lost in their previous 7 Premier League meetings, we expect Fulham to perform well this weekend, especially with their home fans.
