Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Southampton, Fulham will be aiming to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Crystal Palace in the London derby. The Cottagers are eyeing their third consecutive league win and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be Aleksandar Mitrovic, who found the net against Southampton on his return from suspension. Both Andreas Pereira and Daniel James are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Eagles, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Bournemouth. Roy Hodgson’s men, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. All Tomkins, Ferguson, and Milivojevic are out of contention for the visiting team.
