Match: Brighton vs Fulham
Competition: Premier League
Date: January 27, 2021
Kick-off time: 7:30 pm, January 27, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: American Express Community Stadium
Betting prediction: Brighton 1-0 Fulham
Unfortunately, so often these are matches where, despite both teams desperately needing as many points as possible, neither goes out to play for three points because they don’t want to give their fellow-relegation threatened opponent a chance to haul the full allotment on offer. Despite that, Brighton have a goal-scorer in Neal Maupay that could prove the difference.
Brighton vs Fulham: Recommended bets
– Fulham to lose or draw
Having banked just two wins all Premier League season, Fulham’s recent form rings true to a side who is likely unable to avoid the drop. Though they’ve drawn four of their last six, their other two results were expected losses to Manchester United and Chelsea. Still and yet, Fulham have only surrendered five goals in that same period but such is their overall form that a win just doesn’t seem feasible.
– Neal Maupay to score first
As the only player from either side to find the back of the net on more than four occasions this season (7), Neal Maupay is a decent shout to open the scoring (and potentially find the only goal of the match) at the Amex. He has three goals in his last three Premier League starts, and his 30-odd minutes against Blackpool on Saturday should guarantee his inclusion in the match day XI.

Brighton vs Fulham: Match preview
It has not gone well for Graham Potter and Brighton this season. Many expected the Seagulls to kick-on this season, especially on the back of some of their impressive moves in the market in conjunction with a settled squad who – on paper – are better than results suggest.
Bigger clubs have begun to cast their eye on the likes of Yves Bissouma, Tariq Lamptey, Lewis Dunk, and Ben white, while others such as youngsters Aaron Connolly, and Alexis Mac Allister are proving their worth in the English top flight. There is talent on offer at the Amex to build around. But at current, Brighton’s point-haul resting at less than a point-per-match is a tell-tale sign of a club who could well be battling relegation for the duration of the domestic campaign.
Having finished seven points clear last season, consistency must be the order of the day for Potter, but more importantly, taking away all three points in matches they should be winning is of vital importance. Dropped points against the likes of Sheffield United, Fulham, and West Brom has already plagued the Seagulls, and with Liverpool and Tottenham on the horizon, the maximum must be extracted from their second chance of asking against a Fulham side who have not won a league fixture since November.
Fulham and Scott Parker can build on the positives
Though they sit 18th in the table, there is a bright spot that can potentially be targeted for exploitation by manager Scott Parker. Before losses to Chelsea and Manchester United, the Cottagers drew five matches on the spin in the league, including results against Tottenham, Southampton, and Liverpool. In that same period, they kept two clean sheets while only allowed three goals in the process.
There is a decent platform beginning to take shape at Craven Cottage, but Parker has struggled to get his men firing at the other end. Fulham has found the back of the net just fifteen times this term, with their leading goal-tally in the league (4) coming from the unexpected source of Bobby De Cordova-Reid. But the likes of Serbian international Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Portuguese forward Ivan Cavaleiro have yet to find their voice in the Premier League this season, though Ademola Lookman has been a bright spot in attack.
With half the season left to play, and Fulham sitting just five points adrift of Brighton with a match in hand, there is no better time for them to put a measure of faith in what has gotten them some credible results in recent weeks. All that is needed is the shoe to drop at the other end of the pitch in the form of goals.
