Fulham vs AFC Bournemouth Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Fulham’s disastrous defending once again reared its head as the Cottagers lost 4-2 against relegation rival Cardiff City. Andre Schurrle’s brilliant opener was cancelled out quickly by Josh Murphy and Bobby Reid. However, Ryan Sessegnon helped the two teams go level into the break with a 34th minute goal. Poor defensive mistakes in the second-half lead to Callum Paterson and Kadeem Harris inflicting a heavy loss for Fulham. Bournemouth were unable to make it four consecutive wins in all competitions as they were held to a goalless draw by Southampton at home.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Jokanovic may be given a last chance to prove himself that he can turn around the situation at Fulham when his club take on Bournemouth, who are probably one of the best teams outside the traditional top-five. Bournemouth were able to get a huge 5-1 success when they last visited Craven Cottage but this fixture came about in 2015. Fulham make too many defensive mistakes to expect Bournemouth’s forward line-up to not score in the game. Even a Bournemouth victory is available at a very attractive price to become my pick in the match.

Andre Schurrle has been in fine form for Arsenal and the former Chelsea man already has scored twice in the last four games at Craven Cottage. He came up with a sensational effort against Cardiff city to open the scoring. I would opt for Andre Schurrle to score anytime.

Bournemouth win – 11/8

Andre Schurrle to score anytime – 12/5

Fulham Preview

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has been linked with an early exit from the club after watching yet another dismal defensive performance from his team. The Cottagers now possess the worst defensive record in the division after having allowed 25 goals – an incredible six more than Cardiff City who have been equally bad. Even though Fulham have been a joy to watch going forward, they have shown a lot of naivety at the back and Jokanovic has not attempted to change the club’s style of play. Aleksandar Mitrovic remains the top scorer at Fulham but Andre Schurrle is now just one goal shy of the summer signing.

Fulham Team News

The Cottagers will be without Tom Cairney (ankle), Joe Bryan (hamstring), and Timothy Fosu-Mensah (shoulder) due to injuries.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

The Cherries are knocking on the doors of a top five place after losing just one of the last five Premier League games. Bournemouth have easily been one of the best teams outside the top six from last season. Yet, they do lack the offensive strength that other teams around them possess. Eddie Howe remains heavily reliant on the likes of Callum Wilson and Joshua King, but those two players can only deliver so many goals each week. The duo have contributed seven out of the 16 league goals scored by Bournemouth so far. It is quite incredible that Bournemouth have dropped fewer points than the likes of Manchester United and Everton.

AFC Bournemouth Team News

Eddie Howe does not have injury or suspension issues coming into the game.
