Fulham vs Aston Villa: Preview
The Cottagers have just risen to the top of the pecking order and are struggling to battle seasoned teams in the league. So far they have lost all their matches and are placed at the lowest level of the table.
In the process, they had also conceded the most goals of any team in the league except West Brom.
On top of that, they face seasoned Lions, determined not to go through what they went through in the final stages of the 2019-2020 campaign.
Dean Smith’s men were in the middle of the relegation fight, and it was only in the final week of the game that they secured his stay at PL for another year.
Plus, they are also on a hot streak right now and have started their new season with a 100% winning record.
Probably expect Aston Villa to be the best team on the field on Monday.

- Scott Parker’s men are on a three-game winning streak against this opponent.

- Ten years have passed since Smith’s men won a game on this field.
Fulham vs Aston Villa: Prediction
The Cottagers lost 4-3 on the road on the final day of the game, against Leeds. Meanwhile, the Lions have achieved a 1-0 home win over Sheffield United.
As it stands, Smith’s men have the upper hand. They’re on a four-game winning streak, and they’re also on an eight-game unbeaten streak. They are also on a two-game away winning streak and have scored three or more goals in both games.
On the other hand, his counterpart had not won in six of his last ten games in the general classification and had lost two of his three previous appearances at this stadium.
On top of that, Parker’s men are also a recently promoted team and are on a 100% losing LP record right now. As such, expect Aston Villa to avoid at least one loss on Monday.
However, keep in mind that the Cottagers have been the best team in h2h clashes in recent years. They are even on a six-game winning streak at this stadium against this rival.
For that reason, expect Fulham to score at least once this game week.
