  • Competition: FA Cup 1/16-Finals
  • Date: Saturday, 27th January 2024
  • Kickoff: 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
  • Venue: Craven Cottage (London)

Following the defeat in the Carabao Cup Semi-Finals, Fulham will welcome Newcastle United in the FA Cup 1/16 Finals at Craven Cottage in London. 

Fulham are playing another solid season, at least by their standards. Last season, they secured the 10th place, and even though they are slightly worse in the Premier League this season, the Cottagers are doing very well in the Cup competitions. As we mentioned, they reached the Semi-Finals in the Carabao Cup and did well against Liverpool but eventually lost 3:2 on aggregate. In the Premier League, Fulham are 13th - eight points away from the danger zone, although with a game more. The main issue with Fulham this season is their poor road record, but even with that, the Cottagers look like a mid-table team once again. 

Newcastle are coming to this season after one of the most impressive ones in a long time. The Magpies finished 4th in the Premier League, finally securing the Champions League for the first time since the 2002/03 season. However, the current season, and especially the last part of it, is not going according to plan, as they lost eight of the previous ten games. During that time, they were eliminated from the Champions League and Carabao Cup and significantly dropped in the standings on the league's table. Right now, they are 10th with 21 points, already 14 points away from the desired 4th place.

Fulham vs Newcastle United pick: Fulham to win or draw

Fulham lost twice in the last five games, but both times away from home, against good teams - Chelsea and Liverpool. However, we cannot say they performed poorly even in those losses. At Craven Cottage, Fulham have been really good through the season, losing only four of 14 games in all competitions while securing some really impressive wins vs Arsenal, West Ham, and Tottenham. 

The difference in Fulham's performance in the Premier League at home and away from it is massive as they average 1.8 points per game at home, compared to only 0.55 away from it. 

Newcastle United are in terrible form, with eight losses in the last ten games in all competitions. One reason is a pretty challenging schedule, but numerous injuries also played a significant factor. Away from home, the Magpies are on a terrible run, winning just against a Championship side, Sunderland, in the last nine games! Thus, we do not believe that they will win against Fulham, a very good home team.

Fulham team news

The team should have no new injuries, but Adama Traore will remain sidelined with a hamstring injury. Alex Iwobi, Calvin Bassey, and Fode Ballo-Toure are playing in an Africa Cup of Nations for their national teams and will also miss the upcoming FA Cup game.

After a 1:1 draw versus Liverpool in the Carabao Cup Semi-Finals (2nd leg), coach Marco Silva spoke to the media and said he is very proud of how they played in the competition despite losing 3:2 on aggregate. He said that they played against a really quality opponent but also noted that it wasn't their best performance at home. "We were not clinical, even the game away from home. In these types of games and these types of sides, you have to be ruthless," the coach added.

Newcastle United team news

The team has massive injury problems and will most likely miss up to nine players. Joelinton, Callum Wilson, Nick Pope, Joseph Willock, Jacob Murphy, Matthew Targett, Eliot Anderson, and Harvey Barnes should remain sidelined with injuries, while Tino Livramento is questionable due to a virus. Days ago, several credible sources confirmed that Joelinton will undergo a thigh surgery and might be out until May.

Midfielder Sandro Tonali will remain sidelined with suspension due to breaching the betting rules last year. He will most likely return to the field next season on 27th December 2024. 

According to bookies, coach Eddie Howe is the third-favorite to be sacked by a Premier League side, with odds around 6.5-7.
