Crystal Palace vs Fulham: Predictions
Roy Hodgson’s side will bounce into this game on the back of their dramatic 2-1 away victory over M23 rivals Brighton on Monday. Despite the Seagulls dominating the game and Palace only having two touches in the opposition’s box, Hodgson’s side stole all three points at the death through Christian Benteke.
Fulham’s unbeaten run continued last weekend as they closed the gap on 17th-placed Newcastle to just three points following their 1-0 win over Sheffield United. Momentum is certainly in the favour of Scott Parker’s side and they will be hoping to have climbed out the drop zone come Sunday afternoon.
Palace’s win against the Seagulls stretched their advantage on the relegation fight to 10 points which will ease the nerves at Selhurst Park after their two disappointing defeats to Leeds and Burnley earlier in February.
The Cottagers have been able to rely on a variety of goal scorers in recent weeks. Five out of their last six goals have been scored by different players and the introduction of former-Sunderland striker Josh Maja proved an instant impact as the youngster netted twice in the victory against Everton.

Crystal Palace vs Fulham: Match Stats
Ivan Cavaleiro has netted three times this season for Scott Parker’s side in the league and they have all come away from Craven Cottage. The Portuguese forward is Fulham’s top scorer away from home and most recently scored the equaliser in their 2-2 draw away to West Brom in January.
In Fulham’s last five games in the Premier League, each game has been held to under 2.5 goals. The Cottagers have only lost one of those games and kept three clean sheets across those games as their improved form pulls them ever closer to 17th-placed Newcastle.
Palace are unbeaten in the last four meetings between the two sides, however, momentum is in Fulham’s favour as the Cottagers hope to continue their fine run of form and finally climb out of the relegation zone.
