Why Fulham will beat Burnley

Before Saturday’s game, a number of stats have emerged that show why Fulham should beat Burnley:

  • Since beating Fulham 2-0 in May 2021, Burnley are winless in their past eight Premier League games in London (D4 L4), losing each of the past three in a row.
  • Fulham have won 5-0 in their past two Premier League home games (against Nottingham Forest and West Ham). There have been three occasions in the competition’s history of a team winning by 5+ goals in three in a row at home - Chelsea (April-August 2010), Manchester City (September-October 2017) and City again (May-August 2021).
  • Burnley have picked up just two points in their 15 Premier League matches this season against sides who were in the Premier League last season (D2 L13). Indeed, five of the Clarets’ past 10 top-flight wins have been against newly promoted teams, including both this season.
  • Fulham’s four Premier League games in December have seen 20 goals scored (13 for, 7 against), more than any other side. Their 13 goals scored is already the most the Cottagers have netted in a single month in the top flight since December 1966 (16).
  • Willian has been involved in five goals in his past five Premier League home games for Fulham (4 goals, 1 assist), while team-mate Alex Iwobi has been involved in four in his past three at Craven Cottage (3 goals, 1 assist).
