Cottagers host the Magpies in the Monday night game.

Fulham started the season relatively brightly but have gone off the boil in a big way in recent weeks. Martin Jol’s West London side haven’t won in their last seven Premier League fixtures but were unlucky not to come away from either the Emirates Stadium or Stamford Bridge without all three points.

Newcastle United were in a similarly bad run of form before a comfortable win over ten man Wigan Athletic last Monday helped correct their slide down the table. Both sides have an identical record this term so one would have to predict a score-draw is on the cards.
