Crystal Palace vs Fulham Match Preview
Fulham will be hoping Wilfried Zaha’s suspension for Crystal Palace boosts their chances of improving their dismal away record in the Premier League this season.
The Cottagers have lost 10 of their 12 games on the road and drew the other two, at Newcastle and Brighton. Their only away success was at Millwall in the Carabao Cup.
That poor form is the main reason why Fulham are still seven points from safety, factoring in goal difference, despite their 4-2 midweek home victory over Brighton having been 2-0 down at the break.
Palace are among the clubs the bottom three are trying to catch and they are without their talisman Zaha for this game after he was sent off in the 1-1 draw at Southampton, his second yellow card being for sarcastically applauding referee Andre Marriner.
That will not help the Eagles’ poor goalscoring record at home, but it will be only six days since they knocked Tottenham out of the FA Cup with a 2-0 success at Selhurst Park and that should have lifted their confidence.
Connor Wickham, who scored against Spurs, and Christian Benteke are available to fill the void left by Zaha and so Palace should have enough to inflict another away defeat on Fulham.
