Newcastle vs Fulham Predictions

  • Newcastle have seen both teams score in eight of their last ten Premier League home games.
  • Fulham are yet to keep a clean sheet away from home this season.
  • The Cottagers have drawn their last two Premier League matches.

Newcastle rue late collapse

Newcastle suffered a second-half meltdown at Elland Road in midweek as they shipped three goals in the space of 11 minutes to lose 5-2 at Leeds, and they’ll be hoping to swiftly bounce back from this setback on Saturday.

The Magpies have won two of their last three games but are still suffering the after effects of an outbreak of COVID-19 at the training ground. This showed at Elland Road, and the short turnaround time could see them struggle here.

Improving Fulham escape the drop zone

Fulham have shown definite signs of improvement of late, picking up a well-deserved point at home to Liverpool last weekend before drawing with Brighton on Wednesday.

This lifts them out of the relegation zone, but they only lead Burnley on goal difference and they know they need to make the most of this improvement if they want to push their way clear of the bottom three.

Goals at both ends expected

What we can expect from Saturday’s clash is an array of defensive blunders. Neither of these teams has shown stability at the back this season, conceding 43 Premier League goals between them and harbouring the third and fourth worst defensive records in the league.

Newcastle are yet to keep a clean sheet at St James’ Park in the Premier League this season, and if you look back into last season they have conceded in each of their last ten home league games.

Similarly, Fulham have conceded in all six of their Premier League away days this season, making both teams to score stand out as a promising bet. We are expecting a tight match though. Fulham have drawn their last two matches and a repeat of their 1-1 draw against Liverpool looks a good choice for our correct score prediction.

Newcastle injuries and team news

Newcastle are still without some players after their COVID-19 outbreak, and Isaac Hayden could be rested here after starting the last two matches.

Allan Saint-Maximin, Javier Manquillo, Fabian Schar, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett and Martin Dubravka are all expected to be sidelined.

Fulham injuries and team news

Aleksandar Mitrovic could start against his former club here, with Mario Lemina and Tom Cairney also hoping to be recalled.

Terence Kongolo is the only confirmed absentee, while Kenny Tete is still a fitness doubt.
