Burnley vs Fulham: Top free betting tips
Burnley are set to face Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday 3 February with the Clarets now getting towards must-win territory in their bid to survive relegation to the Championship. Can Fulham turn up to Turf Moor this weekend and send Burnley further towards the drop or will Vincnet Kompany's men get a result they desperately need? Our Burnley vs Fulham prediction is for a nervy affair but for Burnley to come out on top.
Match result prediction: Burnley to win
Burnley's form has been desperately poor all season and they have only won three league matches all season. One of those wins, and their most recent, came against Fulham at Craven Cottage in December so they should have a degree of confidence coming into this one. What should encourage them further is Fulham's away record – only Sheffield United have picked up fewer points on the road this season with the Cottagers only enjoying one away win in eleven matches.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals
Fulham's record since the turn of the year has been poor, to say the least. They have been knocked out of both cup competitions and picked up just one point in the Premier League. They have found goals hard to come by, scoring just twice in their last five outings. Burnley have struggled for goals all season and have scored the second-fewest in the Premier League. Don't expect a classic here.
Correct score prediction: Burnley 1-0 Fulham
If Burnley are to come out on top here, then their best bet is to be stubborn in defence and wait for their opportunities. The last thing you want to do when playing a team struggling for goals is to gift them opportunities and Vincent Kompany will be drilling that message into his players.

Fulham predicted lineup vs Burnley
Fulham are in the market for a last-minute striker signing after Raul Jimenez was forced off against Everton with a hamstring injury but Rodrigo Muniz is likely to get the nod against Burnley. Other injury absentees for the trip to Burnley are Harry Wilson, Issa Diop and Adama Traore while Alex Iwobi and Calvin Bassey are still away at AFCON 2023. On the topic of AFCON, full-back Fode Ballo-Traore has returned to Fulham after Senegal's elimination.
