Many punters think that Newastle will again lose points at home. Newcastle won against Fulham only once in the previous five matches at home. On the other hand, Fulham won even three matches, of which the last one was two years ago (0-1). Magpies play very unstably. After three consecutive wins, among them is that in Londona over Arsenal, Newcastle lost at home against Blackburn, 1-2. For this match they cannot count on injured Shola Ameobi, suspended Joey Barton, and from earlier injured Ben Arfa, Gosling and goalkeeper Harper. There is possibility that defender James Perch will not be able to play, also because of injury. Andy Carroll is immediately the best scorer of Premier League, but without Ameobi in the team it could be difficult task for them in this game. Fulham didn't win away, they played tied four games and lost two. The last defeats was in London, 0:1 against Chelsea. Fulham cannot count on injured defender Salcido, while Baird could play. Very important forward, Bobby Zamora, is still injured.
Statistically, Newcastle finished 7 of their 12 matches this season with 2 or 3 goals on the match, while Fulham played such 7 of the last 9 matches in the league. In their mutual matches, this number of goals were eight times in the last 16 games.
Fulham scored only one goal in the each of the last four games away. They play quite closed like guest, and there is not easy to score against them. Home team is without very important forward, Shola Ameobi, so that 2 or 3 goals seems reasonable.
