Fulham vs Wolverhampton Preview and Prediction 2021

Fulham vs Wolverhampton predictions for Friday’s Premier League contest at Craven Cottage. Can Fulham strengthen their bid for survival with a victory over Wolves? Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Fulham have kept just one clean sheet in their last five league matches.

Wolves have kept only one clean sheet in their last five league assignments.

Fulham have won only one of their last 12 home league fixtures.

Wolves have won only one of their last 11 Premier League games on the road.

Fulham running out of road

Third from bottom Fulham have been on the cusp of exiting the drop zone for over a month, however, with time and games running out, the Cottagers can’t quite make the final leap to safety.

A victory for Scott Parker’s side on Friday evening against Wolves would draw Fulham level on points with 17th placed Newcastle, though wins at Craven Cottage have been difficult to find this season.

Fulham’s only two victories on their own patch since their promotion last year came against the only two clubs currently below them in the table, WBA and Sheffield United.

Woeful Wanderers lose again

Wolves meanwhile, continue to tumble south after Wanderers were beaten for the third time in four assignments by West Ham on Monday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges have won just three times in their last 17 top-flight fixtures overall since before Christmas and they are on course to finish in their lowest league position in the Premier League since they were relegated in 2012.

Both teams to score at the Cottage?

Fulham and Wolves conceded three goals each in the last round of Premier League fixtures, and with both defences looking more ramshackle than rock-solid, bettors could be rewarded by backing both to concede again.

Only Sheffield United have scored fewer goals than Fulham this season, though the Cottagers did manage to impact the scoresheet in three of their last four matches, and they have the tools to fashion an opportunity or two against a Wolves defence that’s low on confidence.

Wanderers have failed to score in only one of their last four matches on the road themselves, and their second-half brace at home to in-form West Ham on Monday should help to sharpen their self-belief in front of goal ahead of their trip capital.

With Fulham despairingly short on wins at home (one in 12) and Wolves abject on their travels (one win in 11), a share of the spoils looks the likeliest outcome at Craven Cottage this week however, and a 1-1 correct score prediction could be worth taking with that in mind.

Fulham injuries and team news

Tom Cairney is still sidelined for Fulham, while Marek Rodak and Ademola Lookman are both considered doubtful. Aleksandar Mitrovic is expected to keep his place up front after he found the net against Aston Villa last week.

Wolverhampton injuries and team news

Raul Jimenez has been joined in the treatment room by the unfortunate Jonny, while Willy Boly could miss another game after he tested positive for COVID-19. Marcal and Joao Moutinho meanwhile are still doubtful.
