Brighton vs Fulham Prediction & Match Preview

Brighton vs Fulham
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.30 UK
Venue: The American Express Community Stadium, Falmer.

Brighton and Fulham go head to head at Amex Stadium in the Premier League round 20. The Seagulls did well to beat Blackpool in the FA Cup last 32 at the weekend despite several first-team regulars were rested. 

The likes of Trossard, Maupay, March, and Gross should be recalled to the starting XI, while Welbeck, Lamptey, Jahanbakhsh, Izquierdo, Connolly, and Andone remain in the recovery room. 

The Cottagers, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from the FA Cup loss to Burnley.

Fulham are eager to escape the relegation zone, but given their poor away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Seagulls. 

Both Cairney and Kongolo are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team. 

In the first half of the season the two teams played out a goalless draw at Craven Cottage, but home win should be considered this time out.

Team News:

Brighton's medical room is still well-occupied with as many as eight players sidelined, although Aaron Connolly and Adam Lallana are thought to have outside chances of returning here.

The game will come too soon for the likes of Danny Welbeck, Tariq Lamptey, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Florin Andone, but several changes from the FA Cup win over Blackpool are expected regardless.

Robert Sanchez should return in goal after Mat Ryan joined Arsenal on loan, while Maupay, Ben White and Leandro Trossard are all primed to return to the starting XI.

Fulham's Antonee Robinson serves the final game of his ban after being sent off against Chelsea, while the injured Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo complete a trio of absentees for the visitors.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is back and raring to go after a troublesome few weeks, but having played the full 90 against Burnley, Parker may opt against risking him again so soon after his return.

Alphonse Areola, Kenny Tete and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all set to come back in after being named amongst the substitutes in the cup.

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Webster, Dunk, Burn; Veltman, White, Bissouma, March; Mac Allister, Trossard; Maupay

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Aina, Adarabioyo, Andersen; Tete, Reed, Anguissa, Bryan; Cavaleiro, Loftus-Cheek; Lookman
