On Saturday 12th the Premier League will see Burnley take on Fulham at the Turf Moor. Both teams are at risk of relegation. However, Burnley seems to be doing relatively well as compared to Fulham owing to its most recent Premier League performance. Burnley has won in the last two consecutive EPL matches and they would want to extend this winning streak to three on this coming Saturday at 1800hrs.
The two teams have had a relatively dismal performance this season and things don’t look awesome for both of them. The two teams are at the wrong side of the table standings with Burnley at number 16, just two points and positions from the relegation zone while Fulham sits within the relegation zone at number 19.
Fulham despite their dismal position, they can pull a surprise on Burnley. They have the agility of a wounded animal hence they will need to fight tooth and nail at least to get out of this danger zone.
Burnley, on the other hand, won’t want to waste this chance to improve their chances away from the relegation area and would want to keep all the three points at their home turf. However, Fulham is going to pull a surprise win against Burnley. A look into their most recent head-on action shows that Fulham has a better chance against Burnley in both home and away.
