Two sides whose seasons are essentially over will face off when Bournemouth host Fulham on Saturday in the Premier League.
Bournemouth are in 12th place, and Eddie Howe has avoided the relegation battle for yet another season. This is the Cherries’ fourth consecutive season in the top flight, and they have maintained their identity. They have four more games left this season, and finishing in the top half is certainly a possibility.
Last week they claimed an emphatic win as they defeated Brighton 5-0 at the Amex Stadium. Their attack was rampant, as the likes of Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser got on the score-sheet. The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Bournemouth, lifting them upward in the table.
Bournemouth leads the head to head record, and they beat Fulham at the Craven Cottage when these two sides met earlier in the season. The Cherries have won their last three meetings with the London side by a combined scoreline of 10-1. Fulham have won only one of the previous ten head to head encounters.
Even though Fulham are headed for the Championship, they brightened up their campaign with a win last time. Everton were defeated 2-0 which broke a nine-game losing streak for Scott Parker’s side. Tom Cairney and Ryan Babel got the goals as the home fans finally got the taste of a win after a long time.
The win came as a shock, as Everton were in great form. Fulham played with high confidence, and Parker will hope of a similar performance at Dean Court. Slavisa Jokanovic began the season at Fulham boss before Claudio Ranieri replaced him. Parker has been appointed on an interim basis since Ranier’s departure, and he will be hopeful of continuing the job next season.
Fulham are the worst away side in the division, and they are winless on the road. The only games in which they have claimed points away from home have been two draws. Bournemouth have been brilliant at home, especially in attack. They will go against a historically woeful Fulham defence, who have conceded 76 Premier League goals this season.
Bournemouth have no new injury problems, and the likes of Charlie Daniels and Simon Francis will continue to be sidelined. Midfielders Andrew Surman and Lewis Cook will also be absent for Howe. Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Floyd Ayite will face late fitness tests for Fulham, as both of them are recovering from knocks.
Bournemouth vs Fulham Betting Tips
Fulham have conceded 44 goals on the road, and Bournemouth’s attack could have a field day. Wilson and Fraser looked dangerous against Brighton, and the combination should pay dividends again for Howe. Three points could take Bournemouth to just a point off the top half.
Despite Fulham’s win last time, Bournemouth are the heavy favorites in this tie. The total goals in this game should be over 2.5, and Wilson is a heavy favorite to score again. Fulham could be in for what Brighton experienced last weekend, but not without some attacking threat of their own.
