Bitesize Prediction: Fulham vs Luton – 16/09/23

Competition: Premier League

Market: Fulham win

Odds: 7/10 @ BetUS

Looking to mark their return from the international break with a flurry on home soil, Fulham will welcome Luton to Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, eventually slumping to a routine 5-1 drumming at the hands of defending champions Manchester City last time out, Fulham should be smelling the chance to claim an immediate boost here. Gaining a string of plaudits when making their Premier League return last season as they punched an eye-catching top-half finish, Marco Silva’s men will be excited to make a return to Craven Cottage here. Last seen in west London extending on their EFL Cup adventure as they edged past a high-flying Tottenham, the one-time Everton boss should still find the mood in his camp at a continued high. Mounting a stunning last-gasp comeback away at title contenders Arsenal last month as they snatched an action-packed 2-2 draw at the Emirates, Fulham are rightfully tipped as a standout pick this weekend. Overcoming what was a tricky run of fixtures prior to September’s international break, the Cottagers will have their sights firmly set on skyrocketing their way into the top-10 here.

As for the visitors, while Luton might still be at the heart of a real fairytale story, it is no secret that the Hatters are tipped as a runaway contender to be hit with an immediate Championship return this time around. Last seen heading into the international break with a 2-1 loss at the hands of West Ham, Rob Edwards’ side are yet to put a single point on the board and they are facing a major uphill struggle. Marking their Premier League return with a 4-1 drumming away at Brighton on August 18th, the former Watford boss will have a mounting headache over his side’s rather glaring issues at the back. Including a 3-0 defeat against Chelsea last month, Luton have lost each of their opening three top-flight showdowns by an aggregate score of 9-2. Likewise, hit with an infamous 7-0 drumming when they travelled to Craven Cottage for a Championship battle last year, we are expecting a similar home victory this weekend.
