Disclaimer: This series is examining the games days prior to matchday, there is always the possibility for injuries, coach selections, etc. They may be updated to reflect most accurate starting lineup.
Fulham vs. Burnley
Location: Craven Cottage
Fulham are sizable favorites over this Burnley side, at home. The current goals projection for the game is 3.
This Fulham side looks poor on paper having failed to secure a point. However, they lost the opening game against a vastly-underrated Crystal Palace team and they were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham. However, I think they still a reasonable side and will likely sprung a couple surprises this year. I think is a good time to play a Burnley side that is in really poor form (no points, and were beaten soundly by Olympiakos only Thursday).

Burnley has not played great so far this season. I think that eventually they’ll overcome poor form, I think it will be the home leg of the Europa League. I still think they’ll have a decent season, but I think this game will be a letdown doe Burnley fans.
