Fulham vs Southampton Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Fulham lost for the seventh consecutive game as they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool before the international break. The game was evenly poised when Fulham’s lapse in concentration from a free kick situation led to Mohamed Salah scoring the opener in the 41st minute. Xherdan Shaqiri was left free of any marking to score the second goal just after half-time. Fulham did come close on several occasions. Southampton were held to a 1-1 draw by Watford in the recent meeting at St Mary’s Stadium. Even though Mark Hughes’ men took the lead after just 20 minutes through Gabbiadini, they ultimately conceded the lead with only eight months left when José Holebas scored.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Southampton may have won three consecutive games against Fulham but they are at a disadvantageous position coming into the match. The lack of some key players coupled with the opposition having a new manager at the helm makes a lot of difference. Fulham may have lost at both halves in the last three league matches but Ranieri’s presence in the dugout is expected to spark a revival. I would go with a win for Fulham, whose last home league win over Southampton was in 2004.

Fulham may possess the worst defensive record in the campaign with 31 goals shipped from just 12 matches but Ranieri is a manager who can get the defence working at their best once again. A match against Southampton represents a great option to pick the first clean sheet of the campaign, as Hughes’ men are poor going forward. I would go with the Fulham clean sheet.

Fulham Preview

After several weeks of patience, Fulham finally bit the bullet to sack Slavisa Jokanovic, who never really appeared close to getting Fulham out of trouble. Fulham have been naïve from the start of the campaign. The Cottagers were excellent going forward in the early stages of the season but even that seemed to go away in the last few weeks. Ranieri will be taking a pragmatic approach with the first step likely to be sorting out the woeful defence, which has conceded the most goals (31) by a significant margin.

Fulham Team News

Kevin McDonald (hamstring) is the only player unavailable for new Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri.

Southampton Preview

Mark Hughes is in a major fix ahead of the upcoming match with several key players unavailable due to suspension and injuries. The absence of Danny Ings and Ryan Bertrand are major issues for Hughes, as they have been some of the best players for the Saints. A string of draws in recent matches has not helped the team make up enough points above the relegation zone. Now, a tricky return of fixtures awaits Southampton in the month of December with the team playing against the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham aside from relegation-threatened opponents. Ings is Southampton’s top scorer with four league goals.

Southampton Team News

Danny Ings (hamstring), Shane Long (ankle), and Mario Lemina (thigh) are unavailable for Mark Hughes due to injuries, while Ryan Bertrand is suspended.
