Fulham vs Brighton: Premier League preview and prediction


ulham will be looking to build on their terrific draw against champions Liverpool when they face fellow strugglers Brighton on Wednesday. 

Despite the point against the Reds, Scott Parker’s side find themselves back in the relegation zone thanks to Burnley’s win over Arsenal on Sunday. 

However, victory over the Seagulls would see them leapfrog their opponents into 16th and they would be guaranteed to end the week above the drop zone, even if Burnley were to beat Aston Villa on Thursday. 

Brighton picked up their own morale-boosting draw against Liverpool last month but have lost both of their games since, including when being outclassed by Leicester on Sunday. 

Fulham vs Brighton prediction: 2-1 home win

Fulham have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks, taking four points from a tough run of games against Everton, Man City, Leicester and Liverpool.

They must translate those performances into wins when they get the chance against teams around them in the table. 

Date, kick-off time and venue

Fulham vs Brighton is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Wednesday, December 16, 2020.

The game will be played at Craven Cottage behind closed doors after London was placed in Tier 3 of the government’s coronavirus restrictions.
