Fulham: Kostas Mitroglou and Damien Duff will miss the match due to injury. The trio Giorgos Karagounis, Scott Parker and Dan Burn are both doubtful for the match. Ashkan Dejagah and Pajtim Kasami will miss next game if they receive at least one card in the match.
Only Leroy Fer is doubtful for the match beacuse he is suffering a hamstring injury. Robert Snodgrass and Ryan Bennett will miss next game if they get at least one card in the match.
Fulham shipped at least 3 goals each game in 5 of their last 6 home top flight games. Only one of Fulham’s last 8 home league matches have gone under 2.5 goals. The last 4 meetings between these 2 clubs at Fulham have finished over 2.5 goals. Fulham are only unbeaten one of their last 6 home league matches. Fulham could start with formation 3-5-1-1, while Norwich City will play by system 4-4-1-1. Norwich City shipped at least 2 goals each game in their last 5 trips to Fulham in all competitions. Norwich City’s last 3 away league matches have finished over 2.5 goals.
Fulham: 13 David Stockdale, 5 Brede Hangeland, 4 John Heitinga, 35 Fernando Amorebieta, 27 Sascha Riether, 10 Lewis Holtby, 7 Steve Sidwell, 9 Mahamadou Diarra, 15 Kieran Richardson, 8 Pajtim Kasami, 25 Cauley Woodrow
Norwich City: 1 John Ruddy, 5 Sebastien Bassong, 26 Joseph Yobo, 23 Martin Olsson, 2 Russell Martin, 27 Alexander Tettey, 8 Jonathan Howson, 14 Wesley Hoolahan, 7 Robert Snodgrass, 16 Johan Elmander, 11 Gary Hooper
Only one spot seperated these two sides in table. Fulham climbed to 18th place, while Norwich City are in 17th spot. Norwich lost all their last 5 trips to Fulham, they are also very poor on the road, where they lost their last 6 matches in a row. So i will take Fulham in Asian handicap. Good luck to you!
Andrea Stramaccioni’s preparations for the Coppa Italia second leg against Roma have taken another blow after Walter Gargano and Yuto Nagatomo picked up injuries in the 2-0 defeat to Cagliari on Sunday.
The Japanese defender has been ruled out for the season after breaking his external left meniscus, while the Uruguayan anchorman will face several weeks on the touchline with a thigh strain. They add their names to a growing injury list which includes Antonio Cassano, Rodrigo Palacio, Diego Milito and Cristian Chivu.
Stramaccioni is already without the suspended Alvaro Pereira and Fredy Guarin as Inter look to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit. Veteran striker Tommaso Rocchi will continue to operate as the only fit senior forward.
Giallorossi coach Aurelio Andreazzoli has concerns over trio Erik Lamela, Pablo Osvaldo and Miralem Pjanic after they missed Monday’s training session, but all three are expected to shake off knocks to play on Wednesday.
Club officials also revealed that Daniele De Rossi is making significant progress in his comeback from injury, and the 29-year-old could start.
Vasilis Torosidis and Marquinhos are both pushing for a return to the starting XI after being rested for the 2-1 victory at Torino on Sunday.
Premier League is coming to its decisive rounds and every match will be more and more decisive for the fate of the clubs. Such battle will be the match between Hull City and Southampton from 26th round in the league or more precisely said it could be decisive for only one of the two clubs. Hull is in on the 11th place in the current standings and is four points ahead from the relegation zone. In contrast, the visiting Saints have already secured their final ranking in the middle of the table and only a miracle can get them out of there.
This determines the attitudes of both teams for this match, which will be crucial for the way the teams will perform. There is no doubt that the Tigers will play to win with everything they have, while those of Southampton will have in mind that they have already done their job for this season and they have nothing to play for.
This gives an advantage to the home side, but they also will feel the weight of the pressure of winning at all costs. It is important at such games all the players to be as much concentrated as possible and ready to respond correctly to any situation.
For me in this match is hard to find any value, as it is one of those matches for which the experience bettors say that are triples. This is shown by the betting odds that the bookmakers offer.
Bet365 offers 2.9 for a home win and 2.63 for an away win. It should be noted that the coefficient for a home win dropped seriously, which means that there are a sufficient number of bettors who bet in their favor. A draw at bet365 is rated at 3.3.
3.2 is the coefficient for a draw with bet-at-home. With this bookmaker the coefficient for Hull is 2.85 and again it has been dropped down in the last few days. The chances of the guests in this match are estimated by the betting house at 2.45.
The proposals of William Hill are even more equal for this match. According to the bookmaker, the Hull’s odds are estimated at 2.8, the draw is 3.1 and the rate for a victory of Southampton is 2.6.
It is clear that the match is a triple, so the best you can do is to simply stay away from betting on this match.
