Fulham v Swansea- Match Preview

Dimitar Berbatov (Fulham)Fulham and Swansea have both suffered slight dips in form as of late and will be hoping they can turn that round at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Martin Jol’s side have had an alarming drop of form winning just once in 11 Premier League matches and sit perilously in 14th place in the table.

Laudrup’s Swansea managed to gain another point to add to their tally at the Madejski but would have been hoping to receive all 3.

All is far from lost for the Welsh side as they still sit in the top half of the table despite failing to win in their last four league matches.

Fulham will be heavily boosted by the news that the Swans talisman Michu may have to miss out on this one with injury and that would comfort them, that they can gain a desperately needed win.

The Cottagers will be hoping that their own magician Dimitar Berbatov can take centre stage but they have only won three measly points when he has scored this season.

Bryan Ruiz has been passed fit to start as he made his recovering from a hamstring injury on Boxing day with a full 45 minutes against Southampton in the 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage.

Mahamadou Diarra and Mladen Petric are doubts and Damien Duff looks unlikely to make it yet again.

Swansea remain concerned over Michu and it is very 50/50 whether he will play. If he doesn’t play he is likely to be replaced by Itay Shechter. While Angel Rangel is not ready yet, Laudrup may be able to welcome back Pablo Hernandez from a thigh problem.

Swansea have kept two clean sheets in their last three Premier League away games and will want more of the same here.

Prediction: Fulham 0-2 Swansea
