Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After suffering a heavy 5-0 loss to Manchester City in midweek, WBA will be looking to give fans some cheer when they take on Fulham in the Premier League round 21. The Baggies are seven points behind the safe zone ahead of Saturday’s relegation six-pointer, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. WBA boss Sam Allardyce should have a full squad to choose from.
The Cottagers, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Brighton. The capital club are after their first win of the year, and given WBA’s display in the defeat to Man City, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Scott Parker’s troops. Both Cairney and Kongolo are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Branislav Ivanovic):
Over the years Branislav Ivanovic has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world football. Bane plays as a centre back, but he is capable of playing as a full back as well. The Serbian defender has been playing for Chelsea since 2008 and he used to play for the likes of Srem, OFK Beograd and Lokomotiv Moscow in the past as well.
Ivanovic leaves his heart on the field in every single match and that is the main reason why the fans love him. He is known for his aerial ability as well and it has to be noted that he has scored 22 goals for Chelsea since arriving to Stamford Bridge in 2008.
The Serbian footballer has won two Premier League trophies with the Blues, but the Champions League trophy won in 2012 is considered the biggest success of his career. Branislav is married to Natasa, who gave birth to his four children.
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.
