West Brom – Fulham: An absolutely massive game for two relegation-threatened sides hits the Hawthorns when Fulham visits West Bromwich Albion on Saturday (start time 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).
Fulham’s looked a lot better lately, winless in nine but collecting six points including draws with Liverpool and Spurs.
Their losses in that stretch have come versus Chelsea, Manchester United, and Man City, and Scott Parker’s Cottagers are five points back of 17th-place Brighton.
West Brom is on a miserable run, two points behind their hosts after getting smacked by Man City earlier this week.

Fulham won 2-0 earlier this season at Craven Cottage and you’d bet on something similar if not for the Cottagers’ woes in front of goal this season. Fulham has just four goals since the calendar hit December and kickstarted a nine-match winless league run. This should be a scrappy affair and you’d almost expect a red card. Barring an advantage like that, we’re going with West Brom 0-1 Fulham.
