Chelsea vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Chelsea lost for the first time this season as Spurs secured a 3-1 success at the Wembley Stadium. Dele Alli and Harry Kane came up with quick-fire goals in the first half, as Spurs took advantage of a lethargic start from Chelsea. Son Heung-Min provided a 3-0 lead for Spurs in the second half before Olivier Giroud grabbed a late consolation. Chelsea secured top spot in the Europa League group after a 4-0 success over PAOK in the midweek action. Fulham’s new manager Claudio Ranieri got off to a winning start after a 3-2 success over Southampton. Aleksandar Mitrovic and Andre Schurrle cancelled out an early goal from Stuart Armstrong, who once again put Southampton back into the game with a second-half goal. However, Mitrovic provided the finishing touch to the match with a winner in the 63rd minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chelsea renew the rivalry with Fulham after four years and the visitors step into the match with a decent level of confidence after the recent win over Southampton. Even though Chelsea rested a number of players for the midweek Europa League game, the visitors may have a slender advantage due to the extended preparation time. Chelsea have slipped up in several matches at home, as they have drawn three out of the last four league matches at Stamford Bridge. I would go with a draw.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is back among the goals after grabbing a brace against Southampton. The physical presence provided by the Fulham forward can trouble the pairing of David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger. I would go with Mitrovic to score anytime.

Draw – 7/1

Mitrovic to score anytime – 3/1

Chelsea saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played

Chelsea have conceeded only 3 goals in their last 10 games against Fulham

Fulham saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Chelsea Preview

Maurizio Sarri is starting to attract the first signs of criticism since coming to Chelsea. The blues manager has been criticised for his utilisation of N’Golo Kante, who has not been effective in an offensive midfield role. Recent performances from the blues have not been great and they are in danger of dropping out of the title race at a crucial stage. The blues have fallen seven points behind Manchester City, who do not appear to be in a mood to drop points. The form of Eden Hazard has dropped drastically due to injuries preventing the Belgian from making a major impact.

Chelsea Team News

Eden Hazard (ankle) is doubtful for the game. Victor Moses (back) and Marco van Ginkel (cruciate ligament) are the players unavailable for Chelsea.

Fulham Preview

Claudio Ranieri had the desired impact at Fulham with a win in his first game, but the Italian will be focused on making the club much more difficult to beat. If Southampton, who have one of the worst offensive records this season, were able to score two goals, Fulham have every reason to fear for a drubbing against the top teams even now. Slavisa Jokanovic made Fulham attractive to watch but that did not result in a strong set of results. Ranieri may go with a pragmatic approach in order to prevent relegation this season.

Fulham Team News

Kevin McDonald (hamstring) is unavailable for Fulham.
