Cottagers set for swift return to the Championship
Back in February Fulham fans were dreaming of a great escape as they ended the month unbeaten in five, but heading into the final four games of the season those dreams are in tatters and a failure to win on Monday would put them out of their misery with a few games to spare.
The Cottagers sit 11 points adrift of Burnley in 17th having taken just one point from their last six games. They haven’t won at Craven Cottage since that February surge and even if they were to win on Monday they would require a huge stroke of luck to even come close to safety.
Clarets set sights on safety
Burnley are hardly on fire right now with four defeats in their last five games but Sean Dyche’s team are on the brink of confirming their safety and if they can keep it tight on Monday another season in the top flight would be assured.
This Clarets side haven’t done a very good job of keeping it tight lately but they should find more success against a Fulham outfit that have scored just three goals in their last six games.
Fulham’s winless run set to continue
A result is well within Burnley’s capabilities, and with the hosts winning only one of their last 14 competitive home games – including a 3-0 loss to Burnley in the FA Cup – I’m backing the visitors to confirm their status as a Premier League club.
We’re not expecting a repeat of that 3-0 win in January, though. Three of Burnley’s last four draws have ended 1-1 and only Brighton have drawn more games than Fulham this season, so I’m opting for a 1-1 correct score prediction as well.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will return after being ineligible to face parent club Chelsea last time out, but Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo are still sidelined for the Cottagers.
