Fulham and Aston Villa face off on Monday in a Premier League showdown on Monday at the Craven Cottage in Fulham, London.
Fulham has had two Premier League games so far this year and they haven’t looked good in either game, and in this one they need to do everything in their power to at least come away with a point in this game. To start the season Fulham's defense struggled against Arsenal losing 3-0. In the second game against Leeds United, the offense was good scoring three goals but the defense was terrible giving up four goals. Aleksandar Mitrović is the star of the show for Fulham and in the last game he did have a goal. In this game Fulham Mitrovic to have a big game, and pace the team as they try to come away with a key victory or draw.
On the other side of this matchup is Aston Villa who have played only one game so far this season, but it was a successful one against Sheffield United winning 1-0. Aston Villa was given a bit of a gift with Sheffield picking up a red card in the 12th minute, but they still had to take advantage of it and in the 63th minute Ezri Konsa scored the game winner. Aston Villa had 72 percent of the possession and for a team that didn’t often control the possession last year, the possession control is a key. Aston Villa did play a midweek game against Bristol City in the third round of the EFL Cup and with some backups playing they had no issue coming away with a 3-0 victory.
Aston Villa’s defense has looked good so far this year and that is going to continue in this game. Look for Fulham to struggle to get anything going, Aston Villa will get a goal or two, and that will lead to them winning this game on the money line.
