In the third round of the FA Cup, Hull City will play Fulham at the MKM Stadium on Saturday, January 7, after winning their previous two matches. Even though both of the Tigers’ most recent matches were played in the EFL Championship, they were able to pull off back-to-back victories against Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic.
Liam Rosenior’s team is 16th in the standings and has not lost in their last five games with 33 points from 26 games. With 28 points from 18 games, Fulham, on the other hand, are back in the Premier League and making waves. They are in seventh place in the standings. After going three games without a win before the 2022 FIFA World Cup break, the Cottagers have come back strong, winning all three games. The team led by Marco Silva will attempt to extend that streak here.
Fulham is a much stronger unit and has appeared imperious since returning from the break, but Hull City will be confident in their chances given their recent unbeaten streak. However, the Cottagers should easily win this one.
Prediction: Hull 0-2 Fulham
Hull has a 36-34 lead in all 98 previous encounters between the two teams. Hull has lost three games in this match without scoring since its November 2019 Championship victory over Fulham by a score of 3-0. Hull and Fulham have met three times in the FA Cup, losing in the third round in 1959-60, the fourth round in 1974-75, and the fifth round in 2016-17.
Since beating West Ham in the fourth round of the 1972-73 season, Hull has lost 15 of their last 15 FA Cup matches against teams from outside the top flight. Fulham, a Premier League team, has only lost two of their last 12 FA Cup matches against teams from lower divisions. Aleksandar Mitrovic, a striker for Fulham, has never scored in the FA Cup. In his eight competition appearances, he has recorded 18 shots and played 531 minutes.
