It's time for our Premier League predictions ahead of Fulham vs Newcastle live from Craven Cottage on Saturday. Fulham suffered yet another disappointing performance on the road in midweek and will be looking forward to returning to Craven Cottage this weekend where they have played their best football this season. Newcastle will have been frustrated to have only drawn at home to Everton on Tuesday night but their recent record against the Cottagers will give them belief that they can bounce back this weekend.

Key Stats

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in each of Fulham's and three of Newcastle's last six outings in league and cup, so you can see why we're predicting at least three goals on Saturday.
  • Newcastle haven't lost any of their last eight matches against Fulham but the hosts have only lost one of their last five at Craven Cottage, which is why we've backed a 2-2 draw this weekend.
  • Both teams have scored in four of Fulham's and four of Newcastle's last six fixtures, and we're backing BTTS at Craven Cottage this weekend.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Fulham the slight favourite

  • HOME: 31/20 (2.55) – 39.2%
  • DRAW: 29/10 (3.90) – 25.6%
  • AWAY: 7/4 (2.75) – 36.4%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Fulham are the expected winners of this game with a probability of 39.2%, but we are predicting a close and competitive 90 minutes.

Fulham will be happy to return home following their 3-1 midweek defeat at Nottingham Forest which makes it three wins, one draw and two defeats from their last six league games. Newcastle could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Everton on Tuesday night, making it two wins, two draws and two defeats from their last six in all competitions.

For more football betting tips on the game, check out the Anytime Goalscorer market. Alexander Isak is the favourite to score in this game at 6/4 (2.50) which has a probability of 40%, but if you want to back a Fulham player to score then Rodrigo Muniz is priced at 13/8 (2.63) with a probability of 38.1%.

Team news and form guide

Fulham: Strongest at home

The hosts have a clean bill of health and no suspended players for the visit of Newcastle this weekend but we still expect Marco Silva to make some changes to the side that started against Nottingham Forest given the fact that he substituted three of those players just after the half-hour mark.

Predicted lineup: Leno (GK), Tete, Adarabioyo, Robinson, Bassey, Cairney, Pereira, Palhinha, Willian, Traoré & Muniz

Player to watch – Alexander Isak

Newcastle's top goalscorer was on target in midweek against Everton, making it 15 league goals for the season.

Isak has found the back of the net in each of his last four league games for the Magpies and at the top of his game right now. Newcastle are going to need another good performance from the 24-year-old as Fulham play their best football at Craven Cottage.

Newcastle's Swedish striker is in good form

Despite all their injuries right now, having Isak up front still gives Newcastle a great chance of picking up points as the Swedish striker has pace and power and looks so good in front of goal right now.
