Fulham have been enjoying some excellent results of late and they are good value to cause a big upset this weekend by dumping Premier League side Southampton out of the FA Cup at the third round stage. Prior to the start of the season, the Cottagers were amongst the favourites to achieve promotion at the end of 2017/18 although they remain mid-table following some inconsistent results. Nevertheless boss Slavisa Jokanovic is renowned for steering sides into the play-offs - he managed this with Watford in 2015 and he also did it with Fulham in 2016/17, therefore there remains hope that a rise into the top-flight could be coming their way.

The Cottagers started 2018 in excellent fashion with a 4-1 win over Ipswich Town and they will be confident of edging past Southampton in what is a very winnable clash at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon. The Saints won't hold many fears for Fulham, given that they have now gone nine games without a win following their midweek 2-1 Premier League defeat at home to Crystal Palace and we believe that there will be an upset on the cards this coming weekend.

Southampton have been far from impressive on their travels this term with just one win away from St Mary's and in the likely absence of Charlie Austin who is currently on the injury list, Mauricio Pellegrino has no-one to call upon who can be relied upon to regularly put the ball into the back of the net. Indeed Southampton were dumped out of the 2016/17 FA Cup by Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers in front of their own fans and Pellegrino will be anxious to avoid a similar fate this time around.

Nevertheless we believe that home advantage will count for plenty on Saturday afternoon with Fulham enjoying some excellent form at Craven Cottage. The Cottagers have banged in twelve goals in their last four matches and we expect them to turn over a Southampton side which don't enjoy a very good record at this ground.
