Fulham vs Brighton: Top free betting tips

Fulham will welcome Brighton to Craven Cottage on Saturday, 2 March in what should be a fun match in West London. Fulham come into the game with a spring in their step after defeating Man Utd at Old Trafford last time out while Brighton also have some momentum after rescuing a point in the dying moments against Everton last weekend. Who will come out on top at Craven Cottage? Check out our Fulham vs Brighton prediction below.

Match result prediction: Draw

This is a tough match to call and there are arguments for either side. Fulham enjoyed their best performance and win of the season last weekend at Old Trafford while Brighton have more to play for given their aspiration to qualify for Europe. The game feels most likely to end up as a draw, especially with Brighton involved as they have drawn more matches (nine) than any other team in the Premier League this season.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

There are no reasons for either team to play cautiously on Saturday afternoon. Fulham are in a position with 12 matches of the season left where they are too far away from the relegation zone to be worried but too far away from the top seven to have any hope of sneaking into Europe. They can and should go for it like they did last weekend at Old Trafford. Brighton, meanwhile, have plenty of attacking talent in their ranks and are more than capable of scoring a couple of goals on Saturday.

Correct score prediction: Fulham 2-2 Brighton

Although on paper, this game may not stand out this weekend, there is a chance that it could be the most exciting match on the Premier League schedule. We expect both teams to go for it and for the spoils to be shared at the end of it all.

What made Fulham's victory last weekend all the more impressive was the fact that they did it without midfield general, Joao Palhinha.

Marco Silva is also sweating on the fitness of Willian and Harrison Reed with the duo set for late fitness tests.

Robert de Zerbi will be frustrated that as soon as he got Kaoru Mitoma back, the Japanese international has injured himself and will be missing for a couple of weeks. Mitoma joins March, Hinshelwood, Joao Pedro and Milner in the treatment room while Billy Gilmour also misses out due to suspension. In better news, the likes of Tariq Lamptey, Joel Veltman and Evan Ferguson are back in training and all pushing to start the match on Saturday.
