After victories at Selhurst Park against Leeds, Wolves and Southampton, Crystal Palace are looking to win four consecutive home games in the Premier League for the very first time. After winning just one of their first four home games, Patrick Vieira’s men have found their form and could extend their unbeaten run against Fulham to six matches (W3, D2).
Fulham, on the other hand, go into the game on the back of consecutive defeats in matches that saw them concede in injury time against both Manchester sides. No side has ever lost three straight games to goals conceded after the 90th minute. The Cottagers also have a poor record in London derbies, winning just one of the last 28 (D5, L22) and have an equally bad record against Monday’s opponents, failing to score in three of their last four away games against Palace.
But this is a different Fulham side, who had gone on a four game unbeaten run before facing Manchester United and Manchester City and Mario Silva will be backing his boys to at least come away with a point.

Crystal Palace vs Fulham: Match Stats
Aleksandar Mitrovic returns from the World Cup after a disappointing campaign with Serbia hoping to recapture his Premier League form that saw him find the back of the net nine times in his opening 12 matches. The forward has scored in each of his last three London derbies, having scored just one in his first 17 and needs just two goals to equal his best ever goals tally in a Premier League season (11 in 2018/19).
Another Fulham player that has shone in 2022/23 is Joao Palhinha, who arrived for a reported £17m fee from Sporting CP in July. The midfielder has adapted seamlessly to the Premier League, winning more duels (114) and making more tackles (65) than any other player in the division.
