Fulham vs Brighton Prediction & Match Preview

Fulham vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.

After a fantastic performance saw them pick up a deserved point in a 1-1 draw vs Premier League champions Liverpool, Fulham are set for their second home league match in four days as they welcome Brighton to Craven Cottage. 

The Seagulls were soundly beaten 3-0 by Leicester last time out and Graham Potter’s side currently sit outside the bottom three, but just two points behind Fulham. 

The hosts are expected to approach this match with extreme confidence following their display on Sunday and their high press, combined with getting on the front foot as much as possible could overwhelm Brighton, who have conceded six goals in their last three Premier League games. 

With home advantage in their favour, Fulham have enough within their side to secure a narrow victory here providing they maintain their standards set against Liverpool.
