After steering Fulham to the Championship title last season, Marco Silva will be delighted with the way that his side have settled back into life in the top flight as they have picked up 11 points from their opening seven matches, including all three against fellow newly-promoted side Nottingham Forest last time out.

Three goals within the space of just six second-half minutes helped the Cottagers come from behind to win 3-2 at the City Ground.

While many may have predicted a Fulham victory, few would have expected Tosin Adarabioyo, Joao Palhinha and Harrison Reed to get their names on the scoresheet, with star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic drawing a blank for just the second time this season.

Sitting sixth in the Premier League table, above the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, Fulham could climb into the top four with a victory over Newcastle, if Brighton & Hove Albion lose at Anfield and Manchester United fail to win in the Manchester derby.

Fulham have won three of their last five Premier League matches, as many as they achieved in their previous 30 games in the top flight combined, including two victories on home soil against fellow top-10 sides Brentford and Brighton.

The Cottagers have had plenty of success over the years against Newcastle, as they have won 12 Premier League fixtures against them – only against Bolton Wanderers have they won more in the competition.

Newcastle have established a reputation as draw specialists so far this season, with five already to their name after only seven matches.

Their latest result was a 1-1 draw at home to Eddie Howe's former club Bournemouth, and the Magpies have now gone six league games without a win since their opening-day triumph at home to Nottingham Forest.

Howe will not be too concerned with his side's current form, as they have done enough to sneak into the top half of the table, but with the club's Saudi-backed owners having spent around £200m on new players since January, Newcastle fans will be keen to see signs of improvement in the coming weeks.

Newcastle will have fond memories of their recent visits to Craven Cottage, as they have won their last two games away at Fulham by an aggregate score of 6-0.

The Magpies have never won three consecutive away games in the league against Fulham, but success on Saturday would see them move above the Cottagers into sixth place on goal difference, if other results were also to go their way.

Head to Head

  • Fulham have won 12 of their 28 Premier League games against Newcastle (D5 L11) – more than against any other side in the competition (also 12 versus Bolton).


  • The Magpies have won their past two away league games against the Cottagers, but have never won three in a row at Craven Cottage.
Fulham
  • Fulham are vying to win three top-flight home games in a row for the first time in more than 10 years.


  • The Cottagers have won three of their last five Premier League matches. Their previous three victories spanned 30 games.


  • Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored eight goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions, including a hat-trick for Serbia in the Nations League.


  • Mitrovic could become the first top-flight player to score in a promoted side's opening four home games since Peter Beardsley for Newcastle in 1984-85.


  • Marco Silva is aiming to become the first Premier League boss to beat an opposition manager with four different teams. He has previously defeated Eddie Howe while in charge of Hull City, Watford and Everton.
Newcastle United
  • Newcastle have drawn five and lost one of their six league games since an opening-day victory over Nottingham Forest.


  • Eddie Howe's side have won just two of their past nine top-flight away matches, beating relegated Norwich City and Burnley last season.


  • The Magpies have only lost two of their past 18 Premier League fixtures against newly-promoted sides, winning seven and drawing nine.


  • Callum Wilson has scored three times in three top-flight fixtures against Fulham.
