We are zooming in on Fulham and Sunderland, as the duo face each other at Craven Cottage this coming Saturday in what surely will be an exciting FA Cup clash.

Fulham have their target aimed at getting one over Sunderland this coming Saturday. However, the latter should be highly motivated at the prospect of showing their skills in front of the crowd at Craven Cottage.

Fulham scored nine times in the last ten outings for an average of 0.9 goals a game. They conceded 18 and managed three clean sheets.

Sunderland travel to their next FA Cup match, averaging a lowly 0.6 goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored a disappointing total of six goals, while also conceding 12 goals. That amounts to an average of 1.2 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring zero times.

The last time these two teams faced off against each other, Sunderland came away as 1-3 winners. No doubt they are planning a similar outcome on Saturday.

Fulham managed one win in the last three matches, which was a 2-1 victory against Chelsea. They went on to lose 1-0 against Newcastle, before getting dumped in a 0-1 defeat against Tottenham.

Six points is Sunderland have to show from their past three matches, as they beat Shrewsbury by 1-2. This was followed by a 1-3 defeat against Swansea, before winning 2-0 against Middlesbrough.

Fulham need the support of their home crowd at Craven Cottage after suffering defeat twice in recent matches. We fancy them to rise to the occasion and claim a win.
