Recent respective form guides
Fulham need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Cottagers have scored 6, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Aston Villa's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. Those games have seen the Villans pummel 16 goals, and let in 8.
Fulham are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premier League with a return of just 16 points from their 24 games thus far. Aston Villa find themselves in a respectable 5th position, courtesy of the 41 points they have accumulated from 24 games.
