Best Odds: 9/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Burnley and Fulham will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this week. The match at Turf Moor is slated to kick off at 6pm UK time on Wednesday and could be an intriguing game of football.

Burnley

Burnley are 16th in the Premier League table at the moment with 26 points from 23 matches. Sean Dyche’s side are as many as eight points above the relegation zone and will be confident of escaping the dreaded drop to the Championship at the end of the season.

The Clarets will head into the match against Fulham at Turf Moor on the back of a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in London in the Premier League. It followed a 2-0 defeat to Bournemouth at home in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Team News:

Ben Mee will not play against Fulham because of the concussion he suffered against Palace. Erik Pieters, Dale Stephens, Matej Vydra and Chris Wood are injury doubts, but Charlie Taylor should be fit for the home team.

Fulham

Fulham won promotion from the Championship at the end of last season and were expected to struggle for their lives in the Premier League. It has turned out exactly like that for Scott Parker’s side, but their form and results have improved in recent weeks.

The Cottagers currently find themselves third from bottom in the Premier League table with 18 points from 23 games. The London club will head into the game against Burnley on the back of a shock 2-0 victory over Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the league. It followed a goalless draw with West Ham United at home.

Team News:

Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is self-isolating, while Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo are injured.
