What Trueform says for Burnley vs Fulham
Burnley have returned to something like last season’s superb form in recent weeks and can maintain the momentum by seeing off Fulham at Turf Moor.
The Clarets climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone thanks to beating West Ham and Huddersfield, before edging out Barnsley in the FA Cup.
As their next opponents have only picked up two points on the road all season, 29/20 for Sean Dyche’s side to win again is rated a rock-solid Burnley vs Fulham prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
The omens certainly suggest that Burnley’s luck has turned of late, with a stoppage-time penalty from substitute Chris Wood helping them to prevail 1-0 in the cup.
Wood, who was also on target in a 2-0 defeat of West Ham at Turf Moor and a 2-1 victory at Huddersfield, had started on the bench, as one of five changes.
“We’ve pieced together a side and I’m pleased to go through, because that was a good Barnsley side,” declared Dyche.
“I felt we had enough to win the game and did enough to win the game, especially at the end of a big, important week for us.”
Keeping the feelgood factor going and freshening up a few players was a double delight for the Clarets, who now look very much on an upward curve.
They certainly seem in far better shape than when beaten 4-2 at Craven Cottage back in August, so avenging that loss is definitely on the cards.
Looking at the Burnley vs Fulham odds, we like 8/5 for the hosts to score more than once against the top-flight’s leakiest defence.
Last Burnley EPL line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeill.
Tom Heaton is expected to return to the Burnley team ahead of Nick Pope, who made his comeback from a dislocated shoulder in last weekend’s FA Cup win.
Phil Bardsley or Matt Lowton may recover from knocks, Johann Berg Gudmundsson (thigh) is a doubt, while Aaron Lennon (knee) and Robbie Brady (suspension) remain unavailable.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Fulham fared well over the festive period, drawing with Newcastle and Wolves before beating Huddersfield, but have since slipped backwards again.
The Cottagers’ defensive frailties were once more exposed in a 4-1 loss at Arsenal, before Oldham’s late rally to prevail 2-1 at Craven Cottage in the cup left Claudio Ranieri fuming.
Substitute Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a penalty in that embarrassing defeat, as Ranieri was left to rue relying on his fringe players.
“I gave chances to players but they missed the chance,” said the manager. “I didn’t see the passion, or the desire. I only saw passion and desire from Oldham.”
Fulham do tend to fold when things start to go against them and 12 of their 13 Premier League losses have been by more than one goal.
Let’s finish off our Burnley vs Fulham betting tips by taking 4/1 for the Clarets to also net at least twice more than the Cottagers.
Last Fulham EPL line-up: Rico, Odoi, Ream, Le Marchand, Christie, Bryan, Sessegnon, Cairney, Schurrle, Cisse, Mitrovic.
Fulham defender Alfie Mawson will miss out with a knee injury.
