Fulham vs Norwich City: Match preview

Norwich City travel to Fulham in a crucial game that could either make or break either team’s season.

Norwich are currently five points above Fulham, but will be in deep trouble if they are beaten. Their remaining games to play after Fulham are: Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, so it's crucial that they take something from this game.

In terms of injury news, Michael Turner and Leroy Fer have recovered from hamstring injuries and Sebastian Bassong could be available despite picking up a knock.

Fulham are boosted by the return from injury of Scott Parker, Dan Burn and Giorgos Karagounis, meanwhile Darren Bent is available again, but record signing Konstantinos Mitroglou remains sidelined.

The surprise sacking of Chris Hughton by Norwich could prove a boost or could unsettle things. A team needs stability and with five crucial games to go, many people have questioned the timing of Hughton’s departure.

The visitors travel to Craven Cottage after defeats against West Brom and Swansea, and they will be eager to grab all three points to give themselves a good chance of fighting off relegation.

Fulham picked up a vital three points away at Aston Villa last week, a win that gives them a survival chance. If they hadn't have won that game, it surely would have been all over for Felix Magath’s side.

However, they’re still in it and this could be quite a cagey match, with both teams not wanting to concede, but both in need of goals.

Prediction:

The recent victory over Aston Villa will give Fulham the confidence boost they need and should be able to pick up all three points.
