Thanks to Aleksandra Mitrovic’s great form, the home team is playing very well in its comeback season in the elite. On the other hand, Brighton was the biggest surprise in the first four rounds, so we expect a very interesting match.

Fulham Team News

Serbian goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic has carried his fantastic last season’s form into the current campaign. In the first four games, he scored four goals, so he is currently the second-best scorer in the Premier League. Kane and Rodrigo scored the same number of goals, and Haaland is undisputed with six.

The Serb is most responsible for Fulham winning five points and being in the middle of the table. Many predicted a worse start to the new season for Marco Silva’s players, but they proved them wrong. The Cottagers were very good against Arsenal in the last round. They were leading 1-0, but in the end, they lost 1-2. However, we believe that everyone on the team is satisfied with how they played most of the game.

They are still unbeaten at home. Fulham played twice in front of their own fans – there was no winner against Liverpool 2-2, while they beat Brentford 3-2.

Brighton Team News

Nobody believed that Brighton’s start to the new season would be this good. Graham Potter’s players are the absolute hit of the Premier League and everyone is impressed with the way the Seagulls have played.

They took 10 points in their first four games and are tied for second place with Manchester City and Tottenham. Despite their tough opponents, they showed enviable quality and defeated Manchester United 3-1, West Ham 2-0, and Leeds 1-0, while they drew 0-0 with Newcastle.

Brighton’s defensive line works particularly well. In the first four games, they conceded only one goal, and that was Mac Allister’s own goal against Manchester United in the first round. This means that their defense did not capitulate for more than 270 minutes, which is a respectable achievement.

H2H

The last time these two teams met was in the 20/21 season, and then both meetings ended with an identical score of 0-0.

Expected lineups

Fulham (4-2-3-1): Leno; Robinson, Diop, Adarabioyo, Mbabu; Palhinha, Reed; Kebano, Pereira, Cordova-Reid; Mitrović

Brighton (4-4-2): Sanchez; Estupinan, Coldwill, Dunk, Veltman; Caicedo, Mac Allister, Lamptey, Trossard; Gross, Undav

Fulham vs. Brighton Prediction

We expect a tough and ineffective match. Brighton’s defense seems really compact, so we believe that they will successfully mark Aleksandar Mitrović. On the other hand, Fulham’s defensive line also looked good against Arsenal. All in all, we expect that the tradition will continue and that there will be few goals in this match between these two rivals.
