Tip Reasoning

  • Fulham have won five of their last six Championship home games, only failing to beat Derby with a rotated side during that run.
  • Bournemouth have lost two and drawn two of their last five Championship fixtures.
  • Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored 12 goals in his last nine appearances for club and country.

Fulham have firepower to pick off Parker’s Cherries

Neither Fulham or Bournemouth have been able to maintain their early-season form since the return to action after the last international break, but the Cottagers are in slightly better nick than the Cherries right now.

Marco Silva’s men saw off Barnsley without a problem a fortnight ago, but then slipped up in draws at home to Derby and away at Preston.

Silva rotated his first-choice goalkeeper and 21-goal centre-forward against the Rams, which probably contributed to the stalemate while a controversial equaliser that involved two potential handballs denied them a 1-0 road win in Lancashire. The Whites were also accused of cruising at Preston, but they should have a greater edge to their play when they take on their nearest challengers for the title this Friday.

Coventry collapse is an open invitation for Cottagers

Ex-Fulham boss Scott Parker was devastated by the draw at Coventry last weekend when two late goals undid all Bournemouth’s good work. He will also be without suspended midfielder Jefferson Lerma for the trip to Craven Cottage and, although he isn’t short of other midfield options, they won’t be as physical as the Colombian.

The Cherries have taken just two points from the nine on offer since the international break and will feel the heat of QPR breathing down their necks if they don’t win here. After four straight clean sheets in October, Parker’s side have now conceded eight times in their last five, which could be an open invitation to a free-scoring Fulham to go after them.

Aleksandar Mitrovic remains in talismanic form and is a worthwhile bet at around evens to bolster his goal tally, which includes 12 goals in his last nine games for club and country.

Overall, we find Fulham in more convincing shape right now with a full-strength line-up and have no problems in backing them to win at a shade of odds on. Having seen Fulham outclass a strong West Brom side 3-0 at home about a month ago, it would be no surprise to see something similar here, although our preference is for a 2-0 outcome as Bournemouth have only once conceded more than two in the league this term.
