Crystal Palace vs Fulham Prediction & Match Preview

Crystal Palace

Fulham

28 February 2021 13:00 CET Premier League Selhurst Park

Selhurst Park will host Sunday’s London derby between Crystal Palace and Fulham, the two teams who defeated Brighton and Sheffield United respectively at the weekend. 

The Cottagers did well to keep their survival hopes alive, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to avoid relegation to the Championship. 

Fulham are desperate to climb to the safe zone in the Premier League standings, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against their local rivals.

Ademola Lookman, who scored the winner at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the away team. 

The Eagles, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table, meaning that they have little to play for in the season finale. 

The visitors want this win more than the hosts, who will be without key player Wilfried Zaha in the London derby.
