Tip Reasoning

  • Fulham have lost both Premier League games so far
  • Villa are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games
  • Fulham have shipped seven goals in two matches, facing over 11 shots per game on average
  • Villa have gone 26 games without an away clean sheet in the top-flight

Early relegation show-down

Fulham have struggled through their opening two games of the season, but will their season turn at Craven Cottage on Monday? This clash features the last three winners of the Championship playoffs, but the task for both sides this term is to beat the drop. For Fulham, that looks like a tall order.

Scott Parker admitted after their loss to Arsenal that his side will lose more games than they win. However, will this be another defeat? After more spending in the transfer window Villa are looking to prove a point here, while the Villains come into this one aiming to build on their winning start.

Villa’s perfect start

Aston Villa have won all three games in all competitions so far, as they look to emulate last season’s late-flourish and their run to the Carabao Cup final. The visitors really clicked late last term in the fight for survival, while their victory over Sheffield United saw them continue their good run of form. After a 10-game winless run between February-July (D2 L8), Aston Villa are now unbeaten in their last five Premier League games (W3 D2).

Improving on their away form is vital, as Villa produced only two victories on the road last term. Facing the promoted sides is the perfect chance for them to turn that around, especially when they come into a clash like this in good form.

Villa to pick Fulham apart

Villa should be looking forward to taking on this Fulham defence, especially with new signing Bertrand Traore on the bench, with Ollie Watkins set to start. Fulham have conceded over 11 shots per game on average so far, while they’ve shipped seven goals since their return to the top-flight. Villa are well placed to take advantage of that, so we’re backing the visitors to pull off a victory in our predictions here.

However, Aston Villa haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 26 away games in the top-flight. While we are backing Villa to get a victory, we don’t expect a sudden win to nil. As a result, our correct score prediction is a 2-1 away win.
