Tips & Predictions For Today, January 12, 2019.
League: England – Premier League
Match: 16:00 Burnley – Fulham
Tip: Over 1.5 Goals
Match Result: 2:1 WON!!!
|Two teams battling for Premier League (PL) survival square off at Turf Moor, with the home side climbing out of the relegation zone after two straight wins. In fact, it’s been ‘all or nothing’ in recent weeks, as they’ve not played out a draw in ten matches across all competitions (W4, L6).|
|This trend is season-long in front of their own fans, as only one league match here has ended in a draw so far (W3, D1, L6). All three league home wins have been accompanied by a clean sheet, but on the flipside, Burnley have also conceded two goals or more in four of their last six PL home matches.|
|Fulham, meanwhile, visit Burnley after a humiliating FA Cup defeat at home to Oldham. Claudio Ranieri’s men can’t seem to buy a goal right now, with the ‘Cottagers’ scoring multiple goals in a single match just once in their last 14 outings across all competitions.|
|Now the only side winless on the road this PL season, Fulham have taken just two points from a possible 33 away from home so far (D2, L9) and have lost eight of 11 matches with a two-goal margin or bigger.|
|Players to watch: Ashley Barnes has two goals in his last four PL matches for Burnley, while Ryan Sessegnon has found some form recently with two assists and a goal in the last three for Fulham.|
|Stat attack: The league’s worst defensive outfits meet here, with Burnley’s average of 2.0 goals conceded per match only ‘bettered’ by Fulham’s (2.24) so far.|
|Burnley’s last four PL matches have averaged 6.0 yellow cards and 0.5 reds per match.|
|Fulham have conceded a first-half goal in eight of 11 away PL matches so far.|
