Brighton vs Fulham tips and predictions: Seagulls backed to mark historic first against Cottagers

Brighton’s record against Fulham in the Premier League is rotten, though Planet Sport Bet ambassador Robbie Savage is backing the Seagulls to turn that around this weekend.

If Brighton want to turn their form around, it’s not the opponent they would’ve liked to have faced considering they’ve never beaten Fulham in the Premier League.

In the six encounters, Fulham have won three and there’s been three draws.

But I think on this occasion, Brighton will get their first victory against Fulham in the Premier League. I think it will be a 2-0 win.

Team news

The hosts will be without Julio Enciso, Pervis Estupinan, Tariq Lamptey, Solomon March, Jakub Moder and Danny Welbeck.

Fulham, meanwhile, will have to contend without the aid of Tosin Adarabioyo, Steven Benda, Issa Diop, Kenny Tete and Adama Traore.

 

Key stats

- Brighton have never beaten Fulham in the Premier League (three draws and three defeats)

- Brighton are winless in their last three Premier League games - worst run since October 2022

- Fulham have lost 17 of 24 Premier League matches played on Sundays

 

Planet Sport’s other bets to consider

There are only five clubs which Brighton have failed to beat in the Premier League. Are Man City one of them? No. Are Liverpool one of them? No. In fact, none of the big five, six or even seven are on the list.

One club which still proudly holds that accolade are Fulham who arrive on the south coast looking for a return to winning ways.

The Cottagers just can’t catch any momentum this season, backing up each league victory with a draw or defeat.

Marco Silva’s men were beaten by high-flying Tottenham in their last outing, but they’ll fancy their chances against a struggling Brighton side.

The Seagulls ended their five-match losing run with their maiden European victory over Ajax on Thursday.

While that may sound impressive on paper, a quick Google of Ajax’s league position will certainly change the perceived magnitude of that victory.

Despite Brighton’s recent slump, one thing which has remained strong is their home form. The Seagulls have lost just two games at the Amex this season – just one in the Premier League.

With that in mind, we’re backing the hosts to end their rotten run against Fulham and beat the Cottagers in a league fixture for the first time in seven attempts.

Backing the hosts to win and under 2.5 goals is the way to go in this one.
