Context and History
Scott Parker’s men are nine points adrift off Premier League relegation with four games to go.
Having picked up just one point from their last six league matches, Fulham are 18th on the table.
Meanwhile, Burnley lost 2-1 to West Ham United in their last outing.
But just one more win will almost certainly see the Clarets secure top-flight football for another season.
The Clarets’ last three wins have come on the road (Crystal Palace, Everton and Wolves).
Fulham have won eight of their last nine league games against Burnley at Craven Cottage.
But Parker’s men have scored just nine times at Craven Cottage in the Premier League this season.
Burnley were left ruing missed chances as the points were shared when the sides met at Turf Moor back in February.
The sides also met in the FA Cup this season, with Burnley ending up as 3-0 winners.
