Fulham take on the visitors Brighton in the round 5 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Tuesday, August 30th at Craven Cottage (London).
Fulham appeared to be quite well prepared to fight for a place in the Premier League and next season. The "Cottagers" were knocked out by a very modest Crowley, but it was the League Cup, and it seems that the London club simply decided to focus all their efforts only on the Premier League. Both previous attempts ended in crashes after the first year at the elite level. And now, with the accumulated experience, a number of sensible newcomers and a curious manager, Marco Silva, the Cottagers were able to start with draws against Liverpool (2-2, and the Reds bounced back) and Wolverhampton (0-0), and then snatched victory at home with Brentford, with Mitrovic's decisive goal in the 90th minute. Yes, and on the field of the leader of the Premier League, Arsenal, the newcomer gave a fight. But at the expense of the ear of Gabriel Jesus in the end, the “Gunners” issued a strong-willed 2-1 in their favor.

Brighton gradually added. The Seagulls have been in the Premier League for not so long. A few years ago, the project was headed by Graham Potter, who is considered one of the most promising managers in England. With him it turns out to progress, but perhaps not as fast as Tony Bloom and the fans would like. In this cycle, “Albion” started quite briskly. Already in the 1st round, it turned out to beat Manchester United on the road, with a score of 2-1. This was followed by a goalless draw with an ambitious Newcastle and away 2-0 win at West Ham. Having defeated Forest Green in the League Cup, after that the team hosted Leeds at home in the last round. The stubborn struggle resulted in the only goal in the 66th minute by Gross. This is Pascal's third goal in this championship.
Fulham, going into the Premier League, played quite successfully with Brighton. In the 2018/2019 season, the Cottagers scored 4 points at all, and in 2020/2021 both matches between the clubs ended in goalless draws. The clubs have started the season well, and clearly intend to continue in the same spirit. We recommend betting on "both teams to score".
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
