Crystal Palace vs Fulham - 02/02/2019 Preview

Crystal Palace will face Fulham at Selhurst Park Stadium at 25th Round of English Premier League. Crystal against Fulham is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace this season is playing not best football, however, they often create problems even against strong rivals. Unfortunately, even this team has only 4 points difference between them and the relegation zone. Crystal Palace is one of the weakest teams by statistic playing home matches, however, they are a lot better playing away matches.

A. Wan-Bissaka, L. Miljojevic, A. Townsend and other are very great players with the perfect potential to show in the future. The biggest loss is a W. Zaha, leader and most skilled player of Crystal Palace, which got a red crust and is forced to miss a very important confrontation now.

This year Eagles are great at stealing the ball from the opposition and shooting from the direct free kick. However, they have much more weaknesses like defending counter-attacks, aerial duels, keeping possession of the ball and finishing scoring chances.

 

Fulham

Fulham this year is showing weak football, however, they can give a fight even against strong opponents. Away team is the weakest team by the defense, with 53 conceded goals in 24 matches. Now they stan at 19th position with 17 points and need to gain more for saving their position at Premier League. Fulham made fantastic come back in the last match against Brighton by losing 0:2 after the first half and finally winning with 4:2 result!

The team have great and talented players like A. Mitrovic, A. Schurrle, Lucian Vieto, J. M. Seri and a new signing R. Babel. Babel already showed his abilities and now the team is much stronger with a very skilled and experienced player. This squad can score goals even against strongest.

Fulham this year is great at coming back from losing positions, they likely to play attacking through the middle and down the right flank. However, they are facing problems with avoiding offside and individual errors, moreover defending against attacks down the wings.

Since the 2005 year, only one match between these teams finished with scoring only by one team. This match was played at the beginning of this season and Crystal Palace was better by winning 0:2 at Craven Cottage Stadium.
