Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Brighton and Fulham go head to head at Amex Stadium in the Premier League round 20. The Seagulls did well to beat Blackpool in the FA Cup last 32 at the weekend despite several first-team regulars were rested. The likes of Trossard, Maupay, March, and Gross should be recalled to the starting XI, while Welbeck, Lamptey, Jahanbakhsh, Izquierdo, Connolly, and Andone remain in the recovery room. The Cottagers, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from the FA Cup loss to Burnley.
Fulham are eager to escape the relegation zone, but given their poor away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Seagulls. Both Cairney and Kongolo are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a goalless draw at Craven Cottage, but home win should be considered this time out.
Highlighted Player (Alireza Jahanbakhsh):
Born in Jirandeh, Iran on August 11 1990, Alireza Jahanbakhsh is a footballer who plays for AZ Alkmaar in Holland. Before AZ, Jahanbakhsh played for NEC in the Eredivisie, but he began his youth career at Payam Alborz Qazvin. Speaking of his senior debut, he made it with Damash Tehran in the 2010/2011 season.
In 2011 he moved to fellow Iranian club Damash Gilan and it has to be noted that he scored 10 goals in 44 appearances in the league for the club. The AZ Alkmaar winger, who is used as an attacking midfielder as well, scored 21 goals in 33 appearances in the Eredivisie in the 2017/2018 season. Speaking of his international career, Alireza JahanBakhsh scored two goals for Iran on the road to Russia and he will represent his homeland at the 2018 FIFA world cup finals.
Due to his style of play, Jahanbakhsh has always been compared to legendary Iranian footballer Mehdi Mahdavikia.
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.
