The English Premier League has three matches to enjoy on Monday. Fulham host Leicester as the Foxes try to move away from the drop zone. High-flying Brighton host Sean Dyche’s relegation-threatened Everton. The final match sees two of the bottom three face off as Southampton travel to Nottingham Forest. We dug up some stats and came up with a best bet and an alternative bet for each fixture.
Fulham v Leicester, 4pm Kickoff
This match sees two sides who are struggling for victories. Leicester have just one league win in 12 and begin the day in 16th place. They’re only outside the relegation zone on goal difference. Fulham have taken their foot off the gas since they hit 39 points. They’ve lost seven of their last nine Premier League fixtures. Leicester won on their last visit to Craven Cottage.
Brighton v Everton, 6.30pm Kickoff
The Seagulls are playing incredible football and flying high in the league. They face an Everton side who are 19th in the table and who host Man City over the weekend. The Toffees are winless in seven away matches under Sean Dyche but they have drawn four of their last five on the road. Roberto De Zerbi’s side have won four of their last home matches with 15 goals scored.
Nottingham Forest v Southampton, 9pm Kickoff
This is a massive relegation tussle as 18th faces 20th at the City Ground. Steve Cooper’s side have hit a wall of late with just six points from the last 39 available. They’ve lost nine of their last 13 league fixtures. Saints have lost three of their last five on the road (two draws) and have leaked three goals in each of their last two away matches, albeit at Arsenal and Newcastle. Forest’s last 13 home matches have only seen two defeats and those came to Newcastle and Man Utd – a massive 80% of their 30 points have come at home!
