Fulham vs Wolves Premier League
Premier League (PL) strugglers Fulham need to find some form with real urgency if they are to avoid the drop. They come into this one with the joint-worst home record in the PL (W2, D4, L10) and having suffered defeats in four of their previous five league matches. However, late goals have been the Thameside club’s enemy lately, with seven of their previous eight ‘goals against’ arriving after HT.
Fulham’s attacking form is also highly alarming, especially at home. Finding the back of the net in just two of their previous six home league fixtures (W1, D1, L4), the ‘Cottagers’ have failed to score at home on nine occasions, which is the joint-highest total across the league.
Wolverhampton Wanderers may nervously be looking over their shoulder after a winless five league game run (D2, L3). With the continued absence of Raúl Jiménez, the ‘Wolves’ are another team struggling for goals, and their brace in Monday’s defeat to West Ham was the first time they’d scored over 1.5 since a Valentine’s Day victory over Southampton.
This is one of the factors behind their low goal average of just one per game. Also alarming is the fact that Wolves have conceded first in three of their four away matches vs teams below them in the table ahead of this game week (W1, D2, L1). Additionally, they’ve opened the scoring in just 20% of their PL away matches this season (W4, D4, L7).
Players to score: After a barren spell, Aleksandar Mitrović has netted six times across his previous four appearances for Fulham and Serbia – five arrived after HT. In opposition, Pedro Neto scored in this season’s reverse H2H, and four of his five PL strikes this campaign have proven to be Wolves’ final goal of the match.
Hot stat: Only two teams have conceded fewer equalizing goals than Wolves after taking a lead (four).
