Fulham vs Newcastle preview

Newcastle have had difficulty in the Premier League despite starting the campaign with a win against Nottingham Forest.

Eddie Howe's team will be desperate to overturn that form at Craven Cottage, but they have several fitness issues to deal with for this match.

Alexander Isak will likely be absent after sustaining an injury with Sweden, while Chris Wood damaged his ribs playing for New Zealand and may not be ready to feature against Fulham.

Bruno Guimaraes has a slight issue, so he could feature on Saturday but will have to undergo a fitness test.

Fortunately, though, Callum Wilson may be back in the side for this match after recovering from a hamstring problem.

As for the hosts, they may be without star striker Mitrovic for this game after he picked up a slight knock while on international duty, while Manor Solomon and Harry Wilson are both long-term absentees.

Fulham vs Newcastle tips and predictions

Both teams to score is available at 7/10 (1.7) and may be worth backing given the bet has come through in all but one of Fulham's Premier League matches this season.
