Aston Villa look a good Premier League bet at 10/11 to get their top-flight campaign back on track with a home victory over Fulham.
Villa were unbeaten in five matches in all competitions before their expected defeat away to Manchester United in their latest outing and seem to be reaping the rewards of some big spending in the transfer window.
Darren Bent has scored two goals in three league games since signing from Sunderland and Jean Makoun appears to have made a positive impression in the middle of the midfield.
Michael Bradley has also finally received his international clearance so could be handed his debut.
Villa have never lost at home to Fulham since the inception of the Premier League and have lost just three of the 19 meetings to have taken place overall.
Fulham may also hand a debut to Eidur Gudjohnsen as they look to bring an end to their injury problems in attack.
It is 3/1 in the Premier League betting that Fulham beat Aston Villa and build on their decent recent form which has seen them take 13 points from their last seven games.
However, Fulham are still waiting to win back-to-back league games for the first time this season as they arrive at Villa Park after beating Newcastle at home.
To Score The Last Goal
Aston Villa’s tendency to concede late goals may mean that Fulham could be worth backing at 6/4 to score the last goal of the game.
Gerard Houllier’s men have conceded 14 goals in the final 15 minutes of matches this season, including when Brede Hangeland grabbed a stoppage-time equaliser when the pair clashed at Craven Cottage earlier this season.
