Competition: Premier League
Market: Fulham to stay up
Odds: 5/2 @ Coral
Following a 2-1 away win against Aston Villa, Fulham are now daring to dream of Premier League survival. The Cottagers cut their points gap to just five from safety with five games remaining this season. Felix Magath’s side won their second game in four with the surprise victory against the Villans, and Coral are giving the Londoners odds of 5/2 to stay up come May.
Fulham have a difficult run-in to come, especially considering they’re likely to need maximum points to haul their way out of trouble in time. Norwich, fresh after sacking manager Chris Hughton, are Fulham’s next league opponents. Tottenham, Hull, Stoke and Crystal Palace are the fixtures that will follow.
Regardless of the upturn in performances under Magath, the defence has still remained a real issue. The Cottagers have conceded 74 goals in 33 matches this season, and have only kept one clean sheet in their last 18 Premier League outings.
Time is running out on their fight for survival this season, but is there a chance Fulham can preserve their Premier League status and stave off relegation?
