EPL: Fulham vs Wolverhampton – Match Preview 24/02/2023

Fulham are enjoying a hugely impressive comeback campaign in the Premier League, having gained promotion from the Championship last year. Indeed, the Cottagers have taken 38 points from their opening 24 games, putting them just three points behind Newcastle United.

Fulham claimed a 1-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion last time out, meaning they have won each of their last three games in all competitions. Having lost just two of their previous 12 outings – picking up eight wins and two draws along the way – Marco Silva’s men will be confident of overcoming Wolves.

Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth last time out, suffering their fourth loss in seven outings across all competitions. As a result, Wolves have now lost 12 of their 23 Premier League matches this season, scoring a measly 17 goals in the process.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have been especially poor on their travels in recent times, managing to win just two of their past 17 away games in all competitions. Although Julen Lopetegui’s side have won three of their previous five league clashes, they look destined to struggle against high-flying Fulham.

Head-to-Head: It is worth noting that Wolves are unbeaten in five games against Fulham, picking up three wins during that period. Given that each of the past seven meetings between Fulham and Wolves have dished up under 2.5 goals, another low-scoring clash is on the cards this time around.

Team news: Key striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is a doubt for Fulham, while Tom Cairney and Neeskens Kebano will miss Friday’s clash due to injury.

On the flip side, Wolves are currently without the injured quartet of Sasa Kalajdzic, Chiquinho, Hwang-hee Chan and Boubacar Traore.
