Aston Villa vs Fulham predictions: Villa can extend amazing home run
- Aston Villa have won their last 12 Premier League home matches
- Fulham have scored in four of their six league away games this term
- Recommended bet: Aston Villa to win & both teams to score
Aston Villa were poor in losing 2-0 at Nottingham Forest last week, but there has been no stopping Unai Emery’s side at home as they look to extend their winning league run to 13 games when Fulham visit on Sunday.
The Cottagers were sunk by a late Manchester United goal last time out, but they have made their mark in a couple of notable away performances this season, so they are unlikely to be a pushover.
Emiliano Buendia and Tyrone Mings are long-term absentees for Villa, while Jacob Ramsey is still ruled out with an ankle injury.
Fulham striker Rodrigo Muniz has joined Issa Diop on the treatment table, but hopes are high that Adama Traore and Kenny Tete will be involved in the trip to the West Midlands.
Aston Villa have won their last 12 Premier League home matches, but have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven league games on their own patch.
Fulham have scored in four of their six away games this season and Villa’s last seven home games have featured at least three goals.
Douglas Luiz has scored seven goals in Villa’s last seven home games.
Season-ticket holders at Villa Park are definitely getting their money’s worth this season, with Unai Emery’s team in dynamic form on their own patch.
They finished last season strongly at home and have continued that trend this term and they will be looking to extend their home winning league run to 13 games against Fulham on Sunday.
It is little wonder that they are warm favourites to collect another three points, but there is an additional trend to note that they have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven league games on their own patch.
Goalkeeper Emi Martinez will be disappointed he did not keep Nottingham Forest’s second goal out at the City Ground last week, and Fulham are capable of netting.
The Cottagers have scored in four of their six away league games this season, including at Arsenal and Manchester City, so Marco Silva’s team could make their mark.
