Brighton had fallen flat to win a Premier League game in nine endeavors since beating Aston Villa on November 21. Notwithstanding, Graham Potter’s men guaranteed that their winless run didn’t arrive at twofold figures as they combat their way to a 1-0 victory over the Whites, with Neal Maupay tapping home from Alexis Mac Allister’s pass as Brighton won for simply the third time in the league this season.
The Seagulls have now opened up a five-point hole among themselves and the dabbed line with that essential victory, in spite of the fact that their midweek adversaries Fulham do have a game close by and will be resolved to close the hole on Wednesday night.
Brighton followed up their success over Leeds with another tight victory over Blackpool in the FA Cup, with that 2-1 triumph addressing the first run through since September that the Seagulls have won twice in succession across all rivalries, and they will currently confront Leicester City in the fifth round during an overwhelming run of February apparatuses.
Potter’s men should take on Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Leicester and Aston Villa in the coming weeks, so a triumph over individual relegation rivals Fulham will be of fundamental significance to Brighton in their offer to evade the drop.
Scott Parker has demanded that Fulham are not, at this point the Premier League’s “fool”, yet there was no happiness to be had for the Cottagers against Man United a week ago.
Another dazzling strike from Paul Pogba fixed the success for the league’s chiefs, who had at first fallen behind through Ademola Lookman’s objective before Edinson Cavani leveled procedures, and that defeat to Man United stretched out Fulham’s winless league hurry to eight matches.
Just three of those games have finished tragically, yet various disappointments to bring home every one of the three points leaves the Cottagers immovably in the last three in front of this game, and Parker’s men can’t climb out of the drop zone regardless of whether they do figure out how to win this week.
Fulham have recorded only one defeat from their last four too flight coordinates out and about and held Tottenham to a draw recently, so the battling soul is there, however they didn’t show it in their dreary 3-0 FA cup defeat to Burnley at the end of the week.
Brighton and Fulham played out a dull goalless draw in their first meeting of the period a month ago, yet the last time that the guests recorded two 0-0 draws against a rival in a the EPL season was in the 2001-02 season with Leeds.
Brighton are the solitary group in the Premier League yet to win on home soil this season, and we don’t anticipate that that should change against a more undaunted Fulham outfit. The Cottagers were essentially cleared aside by Burnley in the FA Cup yet will return to original capacity for this game, as will Brighton, so a low-scoring draw could be on the cards at the Amex Stadium.
