FA Cup this weekend and we welcome Aston Villa to the Cottage
So we have a break from the league this weekend to take part in the FA Cup. I would imagine that Villa will be looking to get a little revenge for the play off final but to be honest I can’t see either team too bothered about a cup run, I’m sure both would see it as a distraction.

Wembley, Wembley, we’re the oldest team in London and we’re going to Wembley
We overturned the 1 goal deficit against Derby County with a 2-0 win at Craven Cottage which gives us the opportunity to go to Wembley for the play-off final to decide who’ll be playing Premiership football next season.
Aston Villa will be out opponents, they beat Middlesborough 1-0 over the two legs.
43 year ago Fulham had a disappointing visit to the “old” Wembley loosing to West Ham in the FA Cup Final after the longest FA Cup run in history, it’s a funny coincidence that Villa and West Ham have the same shirts? however I’m looking forward to a better result this time.
Our record against Villa this season:
21 Oct 2017 Villa 2-1 Fulham
17 Feb 2017 Fulham 2-0 Villa
