Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Aston Villa play host to Fulham at their Villa Park in the Premier League round 33. Following five consecutive league wins, the Villans shared the spoils with Brentford at the weekend to stay in the Europa League race. Unai Emery’s troops are on a four-game winning run at home, and given their display in a 3-0 crushing of Newcastle United, home win should be considered. The likes of Cash, Bailey, Kamara, and Coutinho should miss out with injuries.
The Cottagers, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Everton and Leeds United, but we predict that top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic is going to be sorely missed this time out. The Serbian centre-forward remains on the sidelines through suspension, while there are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Birmingham. In-form midfielder Harry Wilson will be one of the men to watch in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Philippe Coutinho):
Philippe Coutinho is a Brazilian football player born on 12th of June 1992 in Rio de Janeiro. Coutinho started his football career for Vasco da Gama where he played in the youth as well. By the age of 16 Internazionale signed Coutinho but let him play in Brazil until he was 18 years old.
After 2 difficult seasons Internazionale let Coutinho go for a loan period to Espanyol and after 1 season he got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 8 million euro. Coutinho played in several youth teams of Brazil but made his debut for the first team in October 2010.
With a height of only 171cm Coutinho is physically weak. He compensates his physical ability by being very creative, having a great vision and passing. The preferred position of Coutinho is attacking midfielder where he gets easily into the right position to give an assist.
Coutinho won the Italian Suppercoppa, the worldcup for club teams and the World Cup of nations U20. Coutinho was part of the Liverpool team that was able to become second in the Premier League.
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.
