Fulham vs Crystal Palace Preview

  • Date – Saturday, April 27, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 03:00 pm GMT
  • Venue – Craven Cottage

Fulham will host in-form Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at Craven Cottage. The Cottagers have been unsteady off late, struggling to pick up consecutive wins.

Marco Silva’s side has been seeking some sort of stability in the final stages of the season as they have secured one win, one draw, and three losses in their last five games. The Cottagers have recorded only three clean sheets from their previous 12 domestic appearances.

They will then take on Crystal Palace who have won one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League this season conceding 56 goals in 34 games. But the Eagles have secured nine crucial points in their last three games moving them 14 points clear of the relegation zone. Fortunately, Crystal Palace have been the dominant side since 2018 even though the reverse fixture ended in a stalemate earlier this season.

Marco Silva’s side have struggled to gather any consistent form in recent weeks but will enjoy another season at the top flight next week. The home side enters this game with some mixed form in all competitions and occupies the 12th position in the league table. The Cottagers have the opportunity to move further into the top half of the table if they manage to secure three points at home.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace has been in fantastic form in recent weeks. Although they have struggled with inconsistencies this season, Palace have secured wins over Liverpool, West Ham, and Newcastle United in their last three games in the Premier League. Frankfurt manager Oliver Glasner took over the new head coach role following the sack of Roy Hodgson earlier this season.
