Fulham and West Brom will meet on Monday night in a massive six-point match. The winner could move away from the bottom three while the loser will be sucked deeper into a relegation fight. Fulham are rock bottom of the table with a mere one point from 18 possible. They have given up the joint-most goals in the league, 14. The only other team to concede as many goals after six matchdays are the Baggies.
Monday night’s game will feature two defensively inept sides playing. While Fulham have taken just one point from 18 and sit at the bottom of the table, West Brom have taken three points and sit 17th. Slaven Bilic’s team have taken all three points in three of their last four games. According to reports out of the West Midlands, Slaven Bilic is unhappy at West Brom but is not willing to walk out on the club. He is a top candidate to be sacked.
Scott Parker is in a similar position at Fulham. After having Tony Khan take to social media following a string of poor results claiming the club would improve, the Cottagers have failed to do so. Parker has denied Fulham’s head honchos have given him a dreaded vote of confidence this week.
These teams played twice in the 2019-20 EFL Championship season. Both games finished in draws with under 2.5 goals scored.
Fulham vs West Brom Betting Odds
Fulham have played three times at Craven Cottage this season. All three games finished in losses for the Cottagers. Parker’s team scored just once in those three games while their atrocious defence conceded eight times. Twice at home Fulham were beaten 3-0.
West Brom have posted one point from nine possible on the road. Their last road match versus Brighton ended in a 1-1 draw. Bilic and Parker both have EFL Championship-quality teams. Although Fulham specifically added a few players, they did not add enough quality to the side to turn it into a side that won’t fight relegation.
Last season’s game at Craven Cottage, which was played in the EFL Championship, finished 1-1 thanks to goals from Anthony Knockaert and Semi Ajayi. Their return fixture at the Hawthorns finished nil-nil. Fulham have underachieved collecting points. They have an expected point figure of 4.65 and an actual point total of 1.0. West Brom have an actual point total of 3.0 and an expected figure of 2.92.
A win for Fulham on Monday night could see them leapfrog West Brom and leave the bottom three. There is a lot of pressure on both clubs heading into matchday 7.
Fulham vs West Brom Team News
Parker has four players suffering from injuries at Craven Cottage. Kenny Tete, Joachim Andersen, Terrence Kongolo, and Josh Onomah are all ruled out through injuries. Kongolo is likely to be out for most of the season after breaking his foot. Onomah has no timeline on a return due to his injury. Parker is also without Aboubakar Kamara due to suspension this weekend.
Parker needs striker Aleksandar Mitrovic to step up his goalscoring. He has two goals in six games and averages 4.92 shots per 90 minutes. Mitrovic has proven himself to be an excellent goalscorer in the EFL Championship, but continues to struggle when stepping up to the Premier League. He is playing against an EFL Championship-quality defence, so could get on the scoresheet.
Bilic is without San Field due to a knee injury. He is out of action until the end of November. Hal Robson-Kanu is also ruled out of games until November. He had arm surgery recently. Dara O’Shea could return to the team this weekend. He is recovering from an ankle injury.
West Brom striker Callum Robinson leads the team in goals with two. He averages just 1.12 shots per 90 minutes. His expected goals figure is just 0.18.
Fulham vs West Brom Prediction
Three of the last four games between Fulham and West Brom in all competitions ended 1-1. Last season’s game at Craven Cottage finished 1-1 with both goals coming in the second half. These sides may concede a lot of goals (14 each), but they don’t score a lot of goals. Fulham have scored five goals in six games and West Brom have tallied six in six games. West Brom’s game versus Brighton last weekend finished 1-1.
Last season’s games between Fulham and West Brom both finished nil-nil at halftime. These teams cancelled each other out in 2019-20 and could do it again this time around. Neither side is very good in front of goal and that should show on Monday night at Craven Cottage. The pressure should be high on these teams going into the game.
The last four games between Fulham and West Brom in all competitions finished with under 2.5 goals tallied. They have cancelled each other in recent meetings. The Cottagers are not great in front of goal. They scored just one goal in three home games this season. West Brom have tallied three goals on the road. With both teams struggling to get goals in games, Monday night’s game should be very low scoring between Fulham and West Brom.
According to the latest Premier League sack race odds heading into matchday 7, Parker leads the race to be dismissed. Parker is 12/5 to be sacked while West Brom’s Bilic is right near him in the race at 23/10. A loss could see one of these managers sacked next week or during the November international break which is rapidly approaching.
Monday night’s game should be low scoring with neither team able to get the upper hand. With both struggling a draw is on the horizon between Fulham and West Brom. Four straight matches in all competitions finished in draws and that should occur for a fifth time this weekend.
