Fulham v Aston Villa 15.00 Sat 6th Nov 2010

last updated Saturday 06th November 2010, 10:46 AM
Fulham turned Craven Cottage into something of a fortress, under Roy Hodgson, and there's no reason yet to believe things have changed on that front under Mark Hughes.

Spurs are the only team to win here this season, while Manchester United and Everton have both been held.

At one stage, Villa were being rated as top-four contenders but there's no doubt they've slipped back - as is reflected by the fact they are outsiders to win this game.

Villa have failed to score in their last three games, their worst barren goal spell since January when they did not score in four consecutive outings.

New boss Gerard Houllier spoke of a lack of adventure after last weekend's goalless draw with Birmingham - a game which saw their run without a league goal stretch to 344 minutes - but it's hard to see Villa changing their tactics significantly in this game.

Fulham are tough to beat at the best of times, and we'd expect another tight game in this one. Given the visitors' lack of goals of late, we could see Fulham winning and keeping a clean sheet.

If Fulham are victorious it will be the first time in 22 games that they have won consecutive Premier League games.
