Newcastle will be looking to continue its Premiership recovery act this Saturday when it travels to Craven Cottage for a tough away game against Fulham.
Fulham has won six of its last ten matches against Newcastle United, and has lost at home just once in this time. Meanwhile, Newcastle has taken three away wins at Craven Cottage while a single game has ended in a draw.
Newcastle’s last match at Craven Cottage ended in a 1-0 win for Fulham.
After the high of beating Arsenal, followed closely by a big win over Charlton in the FA Cup, Fulham crashed to a defeat against Blackburn last week, leaving the Cottagers with two wins, two draws and a defeat from five games.
Fulham has put away 9 goals in its last five matches. The big loss to Blackburn last weekend skewed the club’s defensive stats, with 6 goals conceded in five matches, while only 3 were conceded in the previous 3.
Newcastle, by comparison, has lost none of the momentum it generated with its win over Man United. The club has won four of its last five matches, including three consecutive wins – all at home.
Newcastle has put away a total of 9 goals in its past five games. Defence has let in 5 goals during the same time, with a loss to Liverpool contributing 3 of these, and 3 clean sheets maintained.
This should be a gripping clash between two teams that look fairly evenly weighted. Fulham’s defence looks a bit shakier than Newcastles, but the Cottagers can match the Magpies up front, and have a good track record against Newcastle at Craven Cottage to draw on.
While the match could go either way, it does look like being a high-scoring fixture. The two teams have scored a combined total of 18 goals in their last five matches, and have let in 11 between themselves. This suggests a a 3+ goal match is on the cards on Saturday.
Our Fulham vs Newcastle United betting tip is therefore to go with a back bet on over 2.75 goals being scored at Bet365.
