Recent respective form guides
Fulham's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Cottagers have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.
The away form of Aston Villa is pretty dire, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While the Villans have hit 4 goals, 16 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Fulham's 47 points from 35 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position. Aston Villa find themselves in a respectable 5th position, courtesy of the 58 points they have accumulated from 35 games.
