PREVIEW: ALBION V FULHAM

30 August 2018

Linton Rogers
Albion welcome Fulham to the Amex Stadium this weekend.

Brighton & Hove Albion play their final Premier League match before the international break, as they welcome Fulham to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 3pm.

The Seagulls have an identical record to the Cottagers after three matches, as both clubs sit on three points with a -2 goal difference, following one victory and two defeats.

During Chris Hughton’s reign as manager, Albion have beaten the London club on four consecutive occasions, with the most recent victory coming at Craven Cottage in 2017.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s team were beaten in their opening two matches of the season, before sealing their first points of the season against Burnley last weekend.

Albion came close to taking a share of the spoils from their visit to Anfield, but Mohamed Salah’s goal sealed the points despite an encouraging display from the Seagulls.




TEAM NEWS:

Hughton confirmed that Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo remain sidelined for Fulham’s visit, with the pair likely to be available after the international break.

Bruno has trained throughout the week and the Albion boss will make a late decision on the Spaniard’s involvement, while Lewis Dunk could train Friday and hasn’t been fully ruled out.

After missing the midweek Carabao Cup tie against Exeter City, Fulham are hopeful that captain Tom Cairney will be fit for this weekend’s game at the Amex, after recovering from a minor ankle injury.

Summer signing Alfie Mawson made his first appearance against Exeter, and the defender could come into Jokanovic’s plans for their journey south. Floyd Ayite and Tim Ream remain sidelined for the Cottagers.




FORM:

The Seagulls almost backed up their impressive 3-2 victory over Manchester United with more points at Anfield, but Jurgen Klopp’s team secured a narrow victory on Merseyside.

Pascal Gross almost levelled the game in the closing stages, but Reds goalkeeper Alisson pulled off a fine save to deny the German, as Salah’s curling effort made the difference.

Albion produced an eye-catching display against Manchester United prior to their game at Liverpool, as goals from Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and Gross helped Hughton’s side to a 3-2 win.

An 88th-minute goal from Charlie Austin knocked the Seagulls out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening, as Hughton made ten changes to the side and introduced a handful of under-23 players.

The Cottagers opened the 2018/19 campaign with a 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace, before Tottenham Hotspur inflicted another loss on Jokanovic’s team, as they won 3-1 at Wembley Stadium.

The London side bounced back with a 4-2 victory over Burnley on home soil, as Aleksandar Mitrovic fired a brace, in-between goals from Jean Michael Seri and Andre Schurrle.

Fulham reached the third round of the Carabao Cup in midweek, as they won 2-0 against League Two opposition at Craven Cottage - Aboubakar Kamara netted both goals.




LAST TIME WE MET:

After coming from behind to beat Fulham at the Amex Stadium in 2016, Hughton’s team repeated the feat in the reverse fixture at Craven Cottage in 2017.

David Stockdale saved a first-half penalty from Stefan Johansen to keep the game level, but Lucas Piazon broke the deadlock after the break, as he found the bottom corner on 55 minutes.

But two goals in as many minutes from Tomer Hemed (pen) and Lewis Dunk completed an explosive turnaround in front of thousands of jubilant Albion fans at Craven Cottage.

PLAYER TO WATCH: Aleksandar Mitrovic

The striker, who initially signed for Fulham on loan for the second half of last season, scored 12 goals to help the Cottagers seal promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

After making his move permanent this summer, Mitrovic has begun the campaign with three goals in his opening three matches, with his opening strike coming against Spurs at Wembley.

The 23-year-old then bagged a brace against Burnley at Craven Cottage - with all three of his Premier League goals being headers.

Mitrovic has proved a handful for opposition defences, with 15 attempts at goal in his opening three matches, and Albion’s defence will need to keep the Serbian under wraps at the Amex.

REPORT: ALBION 2 FULHAM 2

1 September 2018

Paul Hazlewood
Glenn Murray wheels away in celebration after levelling the game.
  • Albion come back from two goals down
  • Pascal Gross misses a first-half penalty
  • Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic on target for Fulham
  • Glenn Murray scores twice for Albion to draw level

Brighton & Hove Albion recovered from two goals down to claim a hard-earned 2-2 draw against Fulham at the Amex Stadium.

After a saved penalty from Pascal Gross, strikes from Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic put the Cottagers 2-0 ahead, but Glenn Murray's brace, including a goal from the penalty spot, gave the Seagulls a share of the spoils.
 
Chris Hughton made two changes to the side that lost 1-0 away at Liverpool last Saturday, as Lewis Dunk and Gross returned to the starting line-up.
 
Albion began brightly, as Solly March weaved his way through the Fulham defence only to see his subsequent effort blocked, as Hughton’s men continued their fast start to the game.
 
But Fulham had a golden opportunity to break the deadlock when Luciano Vietto and Schurrle linked up well to set up a chance for Mitrovic, but the Serbian headed over from close range.
 
Albion missed their chance to break the deadlock with 24 minutes played, when Murray was brought down by Vietto and Gross saw his resulting penalty pushed around the post by Marcus Bettinelli.
 
The Gross-Murray combination was back in action again from the subsequent corner, as Murray’s glancing header from the German’s set-piece drifted just past the far post.
 
Despite all of Albion’s positive play, Fulham took the lead courtesy of Schurrle, as the winger latched onto Jean Michael-Seri’s through-ball and rifled a finish past Mathew Ryan just one minute shy of the interval.
 
Dennis Odoi made a surging run from defence at the start of the second half and won a free-kick in a promising position for the Cottagers, but Schurrle didn’t add to his tally with a free-kick that drifted harmlessly over the bar.
 
Propper created a brilliant chance to Albion moments later when he played March through on goal, but the winger saw his right-footed effort go agonisingly over the bar.
 
The Seagulls were dealt a sucker punch just past the hour mark - Mitrovic got the better of Dunk and saw his first shot saved by Ryan, before he fired home on the rebound to double Fulham’s advantage.
 
Albion had a chance to halve the deficit barely a minute later after Shane Duffy met Anthony Knockaert’s in-swinging set-piece, but the Irishman headed wide.
 
Hughton’s men got a foothold in the game with 67 minutes played when Knockaert drove forward to pick out Murray, who coolly slotted the ball under Bettinelli to make it 2-1.
 
Buoyed by the goal, Albion drove forward once again through March, and the winger picked out substitute Yves Bissouma, but the Malian’s effort from distance went over the target.
 
Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Jurgen Locadia were introduced for the final 15 minutes, and the pair combined well, as the Dutchman’s header from Jahanbakhsh’s cross was saved by Bettinelli.
 
But with time running out, the Seagulls had a chance to restore parity to the scoreline when Mitrovic was penalised for a handball inside the box and Murray successfully converted the penalty with 84 minutes played to avoid a potentially harsh defeat.
 
ALBION: Ryan; Montoya, Dunk, Duffy, Bong; Knockaert (Jahanbakhsh 74), Stephens, Propper (Locadia 74), March; Gross (Bissouma 60); Murray.
 
SUBS NOT USED: Button (GK), Balogun, Bernardo, Kayal.
