Fulham vs Wolves: Predictions
Fulham suffered another blow to their Premier League survival hopes on the weekend as they watched their nearest rivals, Newcastle United, snatch a late and unexpected point against Tottenham Hotspur. Later on that day, after taking the lead away to Aston Villa, the Cottagers collapsed late on and suffered a 3-1 defeat.
Wolves’ inconsistent season continued in Monday night after losing 3-2 to West Ham. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side found themselves 3-0 down within the first 38 minutes and despite clawing back to goals it was not enough to earn anything from the game – leaving them in 14th place and just nine points ahead of Fulham.
The games are beginning to run out for Fulham, but their performances are a cause for optimism for Scott Parker who was positive despite their late collapse at Villa Park. Aleksandar Mitrovic’s recent return to form over the international break could play a huge part in helping their survival hopes if he can keep it up for the remaining seven games.
Espirito Santo has sorely missed his injured Raul Jiminez this season. The Mexican striker suffered a fractured skull in their away game at Arsenal in November and the Wanderers have never been the same in front of goal since. However, youngster Fabio Silva scored his third of the campaign against West Ham on Monday which could help kickstart his form with eight remaining games of the season.
Fulham vs Wolves: Match Stats
After a large number of games out of Scott Parker’s starting XI, Mitrovic has earned himself a spot back in the side after impressing on international duty for Serbia. The 26-year-old scored five times across his three games in Serbia’s World Cup qualifiers and then added to that on the weekend with the opening goal away to Villa.
The last time these two sides met Wolves ran out narrow 1-0 victors and since their stunning away victory against Liverpool, Fulham have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their three games (conceding eight goals). Adding to their defensive issues, Wolves have scored in five of their last seven games, however, only winning two of those games.

Fulham have not beaten Wolves since the two sides were both playing in the Championship. When the two sides met earlier in the season it was Pedro Neto’s goal that provided the difference to give Wolves all three points, but Parker will view Friday’s games as a huge opportunity to help their relegation fight.
