Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Fulham and Brighton square off against each other at Craven Cottage in what is expected to be a closer Premier League game. The Cottagers produced a fine display in a local derby at the weekend, but Arsenal eventually won the game thanks to Gabriel’s late goal. Aleksandar Mitrovic has already proved his class in the elite competition, and we predict that the Serbian striker will pose a big threat to the opposition back-line. Both Manor Solomon and Harry Wilson are sidelined with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the home team.
The Seagulls, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth win of the season. Brighton proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Leeds United, but beating Fulham on the road is easier said than done. The Cottagers made a promising start to the season, and seeing that they are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Both Moder and Sarmiento are sidelined with injuries for the visiting side.
