Fulham seem to have peaked at completely the wrong time. Scott Parker’s men come into Sunday’s game on the back of three wins from four games – who knows what would’ve happened if they had discovered such form earlier on in the season. 

 

Newcastle, on the other hand, will be happy to have secured their Premier League status. When Rafa Benitez stated half way through the season that his side would need a miracle to stay up, many fans were left worried about the possibility of playing Championship football next season. 

 

Both teams are in good form making Sunday’s game a tough one to call. Newcastle may have only won two from their last five games however, their recent 2-3 defeat to Liverpool was an admirable one. 

 

In terms of the head to head record, it is Fulham who hold the advantage. The Lilywhites have won three of their last four encounters during which, they have managed to score on five occasions and concede just once. 

 

Bearing all that in mind, the recommendation is to back the hosts. A Fulham outright win is currently priced at 7/5.
