Match Timing: Sep 28, 10:15 PM IST 

Team Preview 

Fulham host Aston Villa at Craven Cottage on Monday evening to open their winning account in Premier League 2020-21. After losing the season opener to Arsenal 3-0, Fulham lost their 2nd straight game to Leeds United 4-3. The Cottagers conceded four goals in first 57 minutes and Mitrovic scored a brace to take Fulham into the game but they didn’t find the equaliser. Scott Parker keen to add a point in the 2020-21 season on Monday evening. The Cottagers can find the positives from their two back-to-back wins in EFL Cup over Ipswich Town and Sheffield Wednesday without conceding a goal. Fulham have won six of their previous eight meetings with Villa in all competitions. 

Meanwhile, Aston Villa kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win over Sheffield United, courtesy of Egan’s 12th-minute strike. The West Midlands outfit also beat Burton and Bristol City to reach into the 4th round of the EFL Cup. Smith’s new-look squad is pretty optimistic after the recent 3-0 win over Bristol City. Ahead of the last-16 affair with Stoke City in EFL Cup, Villa aim to continue their winning streak on Monday.
