Fulham have had an inconsistent 2023-24 campaign so far and are consequently 13th in the Premier League standings. They have won 11, drawn six, and lost 16 of their 31 games in the league so far this season.

Fulham’s inconsistency can be seen by their recent three games. They beat 5th-placed Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 at home, then drew 3-3 against bottom-placed Sheffield United before losing 3-1 against 17th-placed Nottingham Forest.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have also had an underwhelming season and are currently undergoing a major injury crisis. They are eighth in the league table, having won 13, drawn five, and lost 12 of their 30 league games so far. They drew 1-1 against Everton in their last game.

Fulham come into the game on the back of two wins, two losses, and one draw in their last five games. They had a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Nottingham in their last game. They went 3-0 down in the first half itself and failed to recover.

Newcastle, meanwhile, also have two wins, two defeats, and one draw in their last five games. They had a thrilling 4-3 win over West Ham before drawing 1-1 against relegation-battling Everton in their last game.

It should be a tight affair but Newcastle are dealing with major injury issues. Moreover, Marco Silva will be looking for a response from his Fulham side.
