Cardiff City hosts Fulham
Cardiff City is not doing very well this season. The Welsh team is among the newcomers in the league, just like Fulham, but Cardiff is currently at the bottom of the table with just 2 points won. Their record so far is not really much impressive – 2 draws and 6 defeats. Neil Warnock’s team lost all of its last five matches, including against Tottenham in the previous round. In 8 games played so far, Cardiff managed to score just 4 goals.
Clearly Cardiff City is a team which will fight against relegation this season. But so far they didn’t start very well. They are going to need some more points in order to survive. The road is pretty long, but in some moment the Welsh team must start winning points. That’s the only chance they have.
Fulham is also a newcomer in the Premier League. The Londoners are currently 17th in the standings with 5 points won and a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 5 defeats. We can’t say that they are doing much better, but still, they have 3 points more, which is keeping them above the relegation zone.
In their last game, Fulham suffered a second consecutive defeat, losing against Arsenal at home. It was a heavy 1-5 loss for the Cottagers. The world champion with Germany Andre Schurrle scored for Fulham in Bernd Leno’s net, but it was not enough for something more in the game.
