Fulham will continue their streak, after the latest 4-1 win over QPR – it shows their potential, today without any weaknesses in the squad. In front of them are Cardiff which has a fatal losing streak. This is due to significant missings in the squad: Half of the squad cannot play: Nelson, Collins, Phillips, Morrison, Bacuna, Harris.
Peterborough is doing terrible with the teams from the top table They lost last game in a bad style against Coventry 3-0, today the rival even more demanding. Their weaknesses affect teamwork, there will not play: Beevers, Jones, Marriott, Randall. Guests in excellent shape, without losing in the league for a few rounds, if they win, they jump into the Championship leader’s seat.
The hosts will attack the first place of the table, but the queue is long to reach this place. Perfect form, no gaps in the team. Perhaps Rashford’s absence should be noted. On the other side of the barricade stands Aston Villa with a glimpse of form in the last match and beating Everton 3-0. However, today’s rival is not this level, adding a few injured players: Bailey, Davis, Sanson, Trezeguet, Tuanzebe, they will have quite big problems to overcome ManU.
Peterborough, despite their recent victory against Birmingham, are still 21st place in the table. In this match, they cannot count on a few valuable players Beevers, Jones, Marriott, Randall, including the first goalkeeper. The hosts are into right shape and climbing the table, after the last draw with Millwall they want to return to the winning path.
Chelsea looks quite strong this season, only Liverpool achieved drawn with them. Today, only without Pulisic will meet Tottenham. The hosts were fighting against Rennnes in the European arenas 3 days ago, they are tired, which can be seen in the number of players monitored before the game (Bergwijn, Dier, Lo Celso, Lucas, Romero, Sanchez, Sessegnon, Son Heung-Min), but Tanganga will not play. In addition, we can see a short crisis in their play, draw against Rennes, an earlier loss against Crystall 3: 0. As they stand today, they may have serious problems with guests.
Stoke is doing well at home, the last game won against strong Huddersfield 2: 1. Earlier, however, a defeat to Fulham. Today, they will face weakened guests with squad injures affected: Andersen, Kitching, Morris, Williams will not play on the side, Oulare’s performance is under question mark. The visitors’ last matches lost with Bournemouth, no win in 4 matches.
Fulham are doing perfectly in both competitions the Cup and the Championship. They haven’t lost in 7 games. They are the leader of the table for a reason. Today, only without Cairney and Kongolo will face a weakened Blackpool. The hosts will play without a few experienced players: Connolly, Hamilton, Madine, Mitchell, Virtue-Thick.
Chelsea cannot afford to lose points against Aston Villa in this game. After a draw with Liverpool and an early crashed Arsenal, they are in right shape, with only James and Pulisic out of squad. Davis and Trezeguet will not play on the visitors’ side, while many valuable players are monitored before kick-off: Buendia, Konsa, Martinez, Sanson, Traore. The visitors achieved draw with weak Brentford, in current shape they will have problems to take even point from this game.
There is huge question mark close to quality level of Leicester in front of this match and kick-off of league competition. Today we will see them into Community Shield final against Citizens. 3 preparation matches they have lost, only last with Villarreal won 3:2. Also Today host cannot count of couple of important players : Castagne, Evans, Fofana, Justin. Guests are in the different position, Today will not play only Delap. Last 3 games won, they looks to be great prepared for this and league matches.
Brighton looked really solid recently, only lost with Citizens into league and with Leicester into Cups. From the other side opponents are on different position and form, last lost 0:3 with Palace and 2:0 with Leeds are showing their current shape. The reason are serious missing important players: Ferguson, McArthur, Sakho, Schlupp, Tomkins, Wickham, Zaha.
