History of the Aston Villa v Fulham fixture

Aston Villa prepare to entertain Fulham at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Villans are clearly on top, having won 15 and lost only 5 of the 27 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Villa Park was just last season, in August 2007, the Villans carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premier League match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its a close one to call, but I think that Villans's reasonable showing at home is going to see them scrape past Fulham. Home Win

Aston Villa Failed to win in previous 2 home matches.
Fulham Not won in previous 7 away matches.
