Fulham – Wolves | 09/04/2021

Two teams in disappointing form will lock horns at Craven Cottage on Friday evening as relegation-threatened Fulham host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League. Fulham are currently 18th in the table, three points behind 17th-placed Newcastle United, while Wolves occupy 14th position, nine points clear of the bottom three heading into the next set of fixtures.

Premier League (PL) strugglers Fulham need to find some form with real urgency if they are to avoid the drop. They come into this one with the joint-worst home record in the PL (W2, D4, L10) and having suffered defeats in four of their previous five league matches. However, late goals have been the Thameside club’s enemy lately, with seven of their previous eight ‘goals against’ arriving after HT.

Fulham’s attacking form is also highly alarming, especially at home. Finding the back of the net in just two of their previous six home league fixtures (W1, D1, L4), the ‘Cottagers’ have failed to score at home on nine occasions, which is the joint-highest total across the league.

Wolverhampton Wanderers may nervously be looking over their shoulder after a winless five league game run (D2, L3). With the continued absence of Raúl Jiménez, the ‘Wolves’ are another team struggling for goals, and their brace in Monday’s defeat to West Ham was the first time they’d scored over 1.5 since a Valentine’s Day victory over Southampton.

This is one of the factors behind their low goal average of just one per game. Also alarming is the fact that Wolves have conceded first in three of their four away matches vs teams below them in the table ahead of this game week (W1, D2, L1). Additionally, they’ve opened the scoring in just 20% of their PL away matches this season (W4, D4, L7).
