Premier League Preview for Fulham v Cardiff along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Fulham have started this season much the way I predicted they would. They sit in 18th place with four points while scoring three goals and allowing seven. This compares to the newly promoted Cardiff City who are in 16th place on five points having scored four and allowed six.
Two teams very close to one another in the table and in stats. However, this is probably the only similarities. Cardiff have been a hard working team that has largely overachieved, despite having only one win. Fulham have largely underachieved considering the players they have at their disposal.
Cardiff are a team that have been playing well against strong competition, including beating Manchester City and coming very close to holding off Tottenham last weekend. They were also able to hold Everton to a 0-0 draw.
My prediction is for a Cardiff City win. Fulham will need to rely on more individual brilliance from the likes of Dimitar Berbatov if they want to get anything out of this match. Fulham do have it in them to get a draw or a win, but their only win this season was away to the even more poor Sunderland.
Betting Odds: Fulham win: 2.00-2.13; Draw: 3.37-3.50; Cardiff win: 3.78-4.00
Form: Fulham (W, L, L, D, L) Cardiff (L, W, D, D, L)
