Fulham hosts Burnley
Fulham hosts Burnley in a match from the third round of the English Premier League. Let’s see what’s going on with these two teams before their game at the Craven Cottage in London.
Fulham is among the newcomers in the Premier League, but they started the season with two consecutive losses. Slavisa Jokanovic’ boys lost their matches against Crystal Palace and Tottenham, scoring just one goal and conceding five. This shows us that for Fulham won’t be easy to survive this season, especially as a newcomer to the league. The competition is pretty huge and everyone wants to stay in the league. The hard part for Fulham is starting now.
Against Tottenham, the Cottagers managed to score via their Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, but Spurs showed their class and turned the game in their favour. Still, Fulham was just 15 minutes away from at least a draw, but they lost to a better team – that’s the truth.
Fulham needs to start winning points as soon as possible. A third consecutive loss would put them in a difficult situation.
After a great previous season, when they finished 7th in the league, Burnley started the new campaign in the Prem with some difficulties. Sean Dyche’s team won just one point from the first two rounds, drawing against Southampton and losing against Watford. Many pundits say that it’s very difficult to make such a season like the last one and then repeat it. Burnley is a small club and doing such heroism in two consecutive seasons won’t be easy. But let’s not write them off just yet, because it’s just the start of the season.
This is our take on the Premier League clash between Fulham and Burnley – two teams which need points right now. These two teams are hungry, so let’s see what they are going to do against each other.
