Crystal Palace vs Fulham Predictions

The Capital’s Enticing Duel

Key Stats
– Crystal Palace have lost only to the top three Premier League giants at home since the beginning of the year.
– Fulham have managed to score in each of their last four Premier League away games.
– Odsonne Edouard has netted four goals in his last three appearances for Crystal Palace.

The stage is set at Selhurst Park for an enticing Premier League face-off, as Crystal Palace gear up to host their London neighbours, Fulham, this Saturday. Both teams have shown promise recently, with Palace looking to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat against Aston Villa, while Fulham narrowly edged past newcomers Luton Town with a 1-0 victory.

Recent Performances

Crystal Palace’s Flight:

Crystal Palace, under the interim guidance of Paddy McCarthy, came close to sealing a memorable victory against Aston Villa. Roy Hodgson, due to health concerns, wasn’t present at the sidelines, leaving the task to McCarthy, who had briefly managed the side last season. The dynamic duo of Jean-Philippe Mateta and Odsonne Edouard appeared to be delivering a win as the latter netted the first goal. However, Aston Villa turned the tables with late goals from Jhon Duran, Douglas Luiz, and Leon Bailey. This defeat brought an end to Palace’s three-match undefeated streak.

However, the Eagles are no pushovers at their home turf. Their recent records show a commendable resilience, losing just to football giants Manchester City, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur since the start of the year.

Fulham’s Rollercoaster Journey:

Post the international break, Fulham, managed by Marco Silva, came back a little shaky. A taxing defeat from Manchester City seemed to have left its mark, as their performance against Luton Town wasn’t at their best. However, a crucial 65th-minute strike by Carlos Vinicius secured the win. Despite their inconsistent away form, Fulham has demonstrated an ability to score on the road, netting in each of their last four Premier League away games.

Squad News

Crystal Palace witnessed the untimely exit of Jordan Ayew due to a thigh injury during their clash with Villa, which is now awaiting further evaluation. Other key players like Michael Olise, Matheus Franca, Jefferson Lerma, and James Tomkins are expected to remain out of action due to various injuries. However, there’s a glimmer of hope as Chris Richards might return after a hip injury sustained during England’s recent international fixtures.

On the other side, Fulham’s defensive line will miss the presence of Tosin Adarabioyo and Antonee Robinson. Sasa Lukic’s knee injury also puts his appearance in doubt. Yet, their midfield seems secure with the likely pairing of Harrison Reed and Joao Palhinha.

Players to Watch

Crystal Palace: Odsonne Edouard, with an impressive four goals in three appearances, is undeniably the man in form. Eberechi Eze and Joachim Andersen, with their remarkable Premier League ratings, also stand out.

Fulham: Carlos Vinicius, the recent match-winner, and João Palhinha are the ones to watch.


1. Both Teams to Score

The prospect of both Crystal Palace and Fulham finding the net in this London derby is backed by the statistics. Selhurst Park will be abuzz with expectation, especially when looking at recent performances from both sides.

Crystal Palace have found themselves involved in high-scoring encounters of late, with both teams scoring in their last four competitive matches. This indicates a balance between their attacking prowess, showcased by the likes of Odsonne Edouard and Eberechi Eze, and a defence that has shown vulnerabilities, conceding seven goals in their last three fixtures. Fulham, while not as prolific, have still had goals at both ends in three of their last four matches. This suggests that while they can be dangerous going forward, particularly with players like Carlos Vinicius in good form, their defence can be breached.

When the pressure is on in a derby game, mistakes can happen, and with both teams displaying attacking intent in recent fixtures, it would not be surprising to see both goalkeepers picking the ball out of their nets.

2. Correct Score: Crystal Palace 2-1 Fulham

With the aforementioned attacking capabilities of both sides, goals are expected. However, Crystal Palace, who have returned to winning ways at Selhurst Park, winning four of their last seven home fixtures, might just have the edge.

Given Fulham’s mixed form on the road – just three wins in their last ten Premier League away matches – and Palace’s boost from Roy Hodgson’s return to the training ground, the Eagles seem likely to score a couple. Considering Fulham’s recent scoring pattern on the road, they might snatch a goal. Thus, a 2-1 victory for Crystal Palace seems a plausible prediction for this derby.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Odsonne Edouard

When it comes to finding the back of the net, one name stands out from the pack: Odsonne Edouard. The Crystal Palace forward has been in scintillating form recently, having netted four times in his last three appearances. His sharpness in front of goal, combined with the service provided by midfield maestros like Eze, makes him the prime candidate to score in this fixture.

Fulham’s defence, which has conceded ten goals in their five Premier League matches this season, will undoubtedly be wary of the threat Edouard poses. But with the striker’s current form and confidence, it’s hard to see him not getting at least one clear opportunity to continue his goal-scoring run. If there’s a player to watch in this fixture, it’s definitely Edouard.
