Aston Villa will play on the new field of the promoted Fulham in the 3rd round of the Premier League.
It comes after the success with Sheffield Wednesday in the EFL Cup (scorers: Kamara and Reid).
It is without a victory in this beginning of the Premier League season (2 defeats); in the previous round they lost 4-3 to another newly promoted team, Leeds. Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a double.
Alphonse Areola and Kenny Tete made their Premier League debut.
He has a goal scored in each of the last 3 games played in all competitions.

In the previous match in the Premier League, they won 1-0 against Sheffield United (the only goal of the match was scored by Ezri Konsa). She is undefeated at the start of the Premier League season (1 success and 1 draw); scored in both games.

Football Prediction of the Day Fulham vs Aston Fulham
I expect Monday’s game at Craven Cottage to be an open one, with many successes, and that’s why the bet I bet is GG or 3+.
In the previous 2 games that Fulham played in the Premier League, over 2.5 goals were scored. In the last championship trip, Aston Villa scored, but also conceded a goal.
Both teams have a striker who is in good shape; at the hosts we find the Serbian Aleksandar Mitrovic (3 goals scored in the last 2 matches in which he played), and at the guests we find Ollie Watkins (the English striker has 2 goals scored in the last 3 matches in which he played).
Bet Tips: GG or 3+
