Fulham vs Southampton live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV


Fulham host Southampton in the Premier League on Boxing Day. 

The Cottagers will have to do without Scott Parker in the dugout, with the manager forced to self-isolate after a member of his household tested positive for Covid-19. His side are slowly starting to find their feet in the top flight, though, having gone unbeaten in their last three games. That run has left Fulham two points adrift of safety, which represents something of an improvement after their disastrous start to the season, with their defence in particular vastly improved since the opening day.

Meanwhile, Southampton have been in tremendous form, defying expectations and mounting a European charge. The Saints have lost just two of their last 10 games – against Manchester United and Manchester City – with strikers Danny Ings and Che Adams spearheading a free-scoring attack.
