Premier League Preview for Fulham v West Brom along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Predicting the outcome of this match between Fulham and West Bromwich Albion is not an easy thing considering their recent form. Fulham has at least started the season with a win and has three points compared to West Brom’s one point coming from their 0-0 draw against Everton.
Fulham won both meetings against West Brom last season, but this is a new year and a new team for both of them. West Brom is missing a true striking threat after losing Romelu Lukaku. They have yet to score a goal in the Premier League and instead have allowed three for a -3 goal difference.
Fulham hasn’t exactly fared much better to start the year. At least they have scored, with their two goals, but have also allowed four for a -2 goal difference. Not exactly the start they were expecting.
Neither team has shown that they do well with maintaining possession and I see this match being one played end to end. Fulham tend to play a wider game, but their linking play between midfield and attack can often get stretched due to who they have up front. West Brom tend to play a bit more direct, down the middle, with a mix of long and short passes.
My prediction is for a draw, but this is one that really could go either way depending on who turns up. If anything I would shade Fulham a bit more for the win since they are at home, have a good record against West Brom recently, and have scored goals in this EPL season. West Brom do have more players out injured as well, but could make it interesting if they can score early.
Betting odds have Fulham at 2.11-2.20 with a draw at 3.37-3.50 and a West Brom win at 3.43-3.71.
Form: Fulham (W, L, L) West Brom (L, D, L)
