Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium will host Saturday’s London derby between QPR and Fulham. The Hoops aim to kick off their FA Cup campaign in style, but keep in mind that they are on a nine-game winless run in the Championship. The Cottagers, on the other hand, failed to win the previous five league fixtures as well, but they are undisputedly more of a team than QPR.
Fulham are eager to give fans something to cheer about, and we predict that they are going to advance to the FA Cup last 32. In their last meeting in a competitive match Fulham defeated QPR 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Tete should be fit to face QPR, while Kongolo is unlikely to recover in time for the FA Cup clash. Aleksandar Mitrovic is widely expected to lead the line for the Hoops.
Highlighted Player (Tom Carroll):
Tom Carroll is a professional English footballer who plays for Swansea City as a midfielder. The 177-cm tall is a product of Tottenham football academy and it has to be noted that he made 27 appearances for Spurs at senior level, scoring one goal. He found the net in a 3-0 win over Norwich City in the 2015/2016 season.
After ending his loan spells with the likes of Leyton Orient, Derby County and Queens Park Rangers, Tom Carroll signed a permanent deal with the Swans in the winter of 2017. Tom Carroll has 17 caps for England U21 team, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team.
His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both left and right midfielder as well. Tom Carroll’s preferred foot is left and his contract with the Welsh outfit should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Premier League. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition, but managed to return in season 2018/2019.
Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight.
Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League.
The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
