Betting prediction: Burnley 1-1 Fulham

Both Burnley and Fulham come into this fixture full of confidence. The Clarets put Crystal Palace to the sword (3-0), while Fulham finally put in a performance worthy of some of their recent displays. With Burnley eight points clear of the Cottagers and the relegation zone, both sides should be up for this, though a repeat of their goalscoring exploits could be unlikely.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Draw – Yes

After their weekend performances, both Burnley and Fulham should be a little more willing to come out of their cages rather than consigning themselves to play for a bore draw. However, both are certainly guilty of being poor overall in front of goal this term, so an entertaining and spirited draw could be on the cards.

To score anytime: Josh Maja

With a brace against Everton in a very good full-debut for the Nigerian center-forward, Josh Maja could potentially be the answer to the goalscoring riddles at Craven Cottage. Already equalling Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goal tally this term, the Nigerian international – on loan from Bordeaux – should get on the end of something if Fulham put in a performance similar to their weekend three-point haul.

Burnley vs Fulham: Match preview

Burnley is in the top seven, ladies and gentlemen. Yes, it is only in the form table, but posting a 3-1-2 record in their last six Premier League outings serves up a potential platform for Sean Dyche to aim to improve upon.

Wins against Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, and Liverpool – two of which most if not all would assume Burnley would take nothing off of – certainly shows that Burnley can be better. This has been said before, and though they struggle for goals and are often a little too negative in their approach, they remain a tricky side to negotiate. Like all Premier League clubs tend to be.

The worry, however, remains the goals. Bagging three against Palace is encouraging, but one-third (6) of their total goal haul (17) for the season coming from two fixtures (3-0 v Palace, and 3-2 v Villa) is the bigger concern. Much of that, however, comes down to a genuine lack of consistent creativity, despite a player like Dwight McNeil being in the side. No Burnley player can claim a xA90 higher than 0.2, while the highest xA for the season to date sits at 4.85 (Ashley Westwood).

It remains clear why Burnley struggles to score. It is easy to look at the lack of undisputed quality up front and a lack of a considerable command and control centre on the pitch to keep supply open. However, Dyche does have to look in the mirror and take some flak for not providing a better overall platform for his team to get themselves amongst the goals. If Burnley wants to give themselves an even greater degree of separation from the bottom three, then being a little more forward-thinking against Fulham would be a good place to measure their potential capabilities in this area.

Goals could be more common for Fulham after Josh Maja full debut

“This is a night I have been dreaming about for a long time, especially last night and I had a feeling it was coming and pleased it became a reality.” Josh Maja could not have been more thrilled with his full debut performance for Fulham, after bagging a brace in an unexpected 2-0 win against Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton. And it was a performance that came not a moment too soon.

Fulham is a very good example of a side whose performances are not indicative of their place in the table. They should not be sitting comfortably in mid-table, but it can certainly be argued that being in the bottom three is harsh, and much like with Burnley, their biggest issue is goals. With Serbian international Aleksandar Mitrovic failing – yet again – to make the grade in the Premier League, and Ademola Lookman & Bobby De Cordova-Reid deputizing as makeshift center-forwards at times, Maja’s arrival from southwestern France could not come a moment too soon.

For a system-manager like Scott Parker, a player like Maja opens up a lot of options on a tactical front. Lookman, Cordova-Reid, and even Ruben Loftus-Cheek are now more able to operate in a manner that can bring out their better qualities in positions they’re more comfortable with. A more fleshed-out XI, with better balance and a true central attacking pivot for other forwards to play off of, could be a real boon to a Fulham attack that perhaps has a bit more about them than we have seen this season.

Burnley team news vs Fulham

Sean Dyche should keep his current preferred matchday XI intact for their date with Fulham, though Ben Mee guaranteed to miss out after being stretchered off at the weekend.

Both Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor remain doubts for selection as well, but could potentially be available for the coming weekend fixture.

 

Fulham team news vs Burnley

Tom Cairney remains the only absentee member of the Fulham squad going into the midweek fixture through injury, but Aleksandar Mitrovic is set to be unavailable after testing positive for Covid-19.

Scott Parker will have choices to make, however, whether he sticks or twists with the team from their much-needed win against Everton.
