Bitesize Prediction: Fulham vs Crystal Palace – 20/05/23

Competition: Premier League

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 3/10 @ 1xBet

With London bragging rights up for grabs this weekend, Fulham will welcome Crystal Palace to Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Fulham might have found themselves in the midst of a wobble when opening May, Marco Silva’s side have bounced back in an eye-catching fashion. Only continuing to gain a string of praise since making their Premier League return this season, the Cottagers have already booked a stellar top-half finish with time to spare. Last seen putting in another impressive display as they secured a 2-0 victory away at Southampton, the former Everton boss has seen his side clinch back-to-back Premier League wins. Putting in an action-packed performance at Craven Cottage as they secured a 5-3 win against Leicester, Fulham are simply looking to end their campaign with a flurry. Welcoming back attacking talisman Alexsander Mitrovic last weekend, Silva’s side will also be glad to make a return to west London here. It should be highlighted, Saturday’s hosts have seen eight of their last nine showdowns at Craven Cottage finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, making an immediate return to winning ways last weekend, Crystal Palace have only continued to shine since they welcomed Roy Hodgson back to Selhurst Park. Last seen claiming a deserved 2-0 victory at home against Bournemouth, the Eagles have skyrocketed themselves away from a relegation scrap. Losing just a pair of their last eight Premier League appearances – a run that stems back to a 4-1 defeat against Arsenal on March 19th – the former England boss has also seen his squad put in some real free-scoring displays. Including hitting West Ham for four last month, Palace also stormed their way to a remarkable 5-1 romp away at Leeds on April 9th. However, facing a tough test this weekend, Hodgson’s side should be worried by their most recent meeting against the Cottagers. Slumping to a 3-0 drumming when they welcomed Fulham to south London on Boxing Day, we could be treated to an enjoyable affair here.
