Fulham vs Brighton Match Preview
Fulham are in another losing rut and therefore difficult to fancy against a Brighton side 12 points ahead of them in the Premier League table.
Claudio Ranieri is failing to work his Leicester magic with the Cottagers and it is very difficult now to see how they will avoid relegation, being eight points away from safety.
Last time out, Fulham almost held Tottenham to a draw at Craven Cottage until conceding a last-gasp Harry Winks winner but they had been thoroughly outplayed.
Things are clearly not hunky dory behind the scenes either with forward Aboubakar Kamara arrested at the club’s training ground following an alleged altercation with a member of staff.
The one thing Fulham have going for them in this match is that they have collected four more points at home this season than Brighton have on the road.
Away form is not the Seagulls’ strength, but they have improved in that area in 2019 with a draw at West Ham, an FA Cup win at Bournemouth and a narrow defeat at Manchester United where they were pushing their in-form hosts hard for a point at the end.
The losing habit simply appears too ingrained within Fulham at present and the odds for this game clearly flag up Brighton as the most appealing bet.
