Prediction Nottm Forest Vs Fulham
The Premier League Prediction Nottm Forest vs Fulham is about to held today on Saturday, at Craven Cottage is up here.
Fulham come into this game on the back of a 3-2 win over Tony Mowbray’s Sunderland in the 4th round replay of the FA Cup. Goals from Welsh winger Harry Wilson, Brazilian midfielder Andreas Pereira and French left-back Layvin Kurzawa secured the win for Marco Silva’s Fulham. Second-half goals from attacker Jack Clarke and Costa Rican forward Jewison Bennette proved to be mere consolation for Sunderland.
After gaining promotion alongside Nottingham Forest last year, the Cottagers have exceeded all expectations this season, winning nine of their 22 league games to keep them above Chelsea and Liverpool in the standings.
That said, Marco Silva will be eager to end a three-match winless run in the Premier League, with defeats to Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur preceding a goalless draw against London rivals Chelsea at the Cottage.
It is also worth noting that Fulham have failed to score in each of their last three league outings, although Silva’s men did manage to chalk up a four-game winning run directly after the World Cup break.
Nottm Forest Through Premier League
The Tricky Trees extended their unbeaten streak in the Premier League to five matches with a hard-fought 1-0 win against Leeds United last time out, leading to the sacking of Whites manager Jesse Marsch.
Brennan Johnson scored the decisive goal after 14 minutes, meaning that the 21-year-old has now bagged three goals and two assists across his previous four league appearances.
Having made a poor start to the season – winning two of their opening 14 Premier League games – Nottingham Forest have lost just one of their past eight league outings to open up a six-point gap between them and the bottom three.
It is worth pointing out, however, that only Bournemouth have claimed fewer points on their travels than Forest this season, with Cooper’s side winning one of their 10 away games.
On top of that, only Wolverhampton Wanderers have scored fewer goals than Forest’s 17, while no team has netted fewer away goals than Forest’s three, so the Reds will be desperate to increase their output on the road.
Forest lost the reverse fixture 3-2 back in September, with Fulham scoring three goals in six second-half minutes, but it feels as though Cooper’s men have improved drastically since then.
Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, beat Leeds United 1-0 in the league. A first-half goal from Wales international Brennan Johnson sealed the deal for Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest.
Portuguese midfielder Joao Palhinha is another player who has impressed; the 27-year old has provided steel to Fulham’s midfield, while the likes of Kenny Tete and Willian have proved to be important players as well. Portuguese right-back Cedric and Serbian midfielder Sasa Lukic joined the club in January. Silva, who was regarded as a bright young coach in Portugal but struggled with the likes of Hull City, Watford and Everton in England, has once again shown why he is rated so highly.
Nottingham Forest shocked everyone when they acquired three-time Champions League winner Keylor Navas on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in January. They have, for all intents and purposes, purchased a new squad since their promotion.
