Somebody clearly told Fulham that the Premier League ended on April Fools’ Day this season and their recent run of lacklustre results makes it difficult to predict anything other than a Swansea success at the Liberty Stadium.
In their seven games since victory over QPR on April 1st, Fulham’s solitary point has come against Aston Villa and they have lost their last five on the bounce.
Swansea are hardly in scintillating form themselves with one win in nine games, but they have only lost two of their last seven in Wales and that was to top four-duelling pair Arsenal and Tottenham.
It is 4/5 for a Swansea win and they have triumphed in all three previous encounters between the pair in the Premier League, including a 2-1 success at Craven Cottage over the Xmas period.
However, this may not be the best bet on offer for the clash, with the market relating to how many goals Swansea will score looking the most intriguing.
There are five teams situated below Fulham heading into the final day of the season and Swansea have scored at least two against them all at the Liberty.
Swansea are 3/4 to score over 1.5 goals against Fulham, who do not have the best defensive record of late either. They have shipped four to Reading and three to Liverpool in their last two games, which were also both on their own patch.
Over 2.5 goals have additionally been scored in total in all of these five games and so the 17/10 on offer in The Total Result market for a Swansea win in a game with three or more goals looks the most valuable punt at 17/10.
It is hard not to mention a Swansea game without seeing the price on Michu to strike, especially as he has scored at the Liberty against four of the five clubs below Fulham in the table.
He is 7/2 to grab the opener here.
