Fulham got the better of Chelsea when the two sides last met at Craven Cottage in early January with a 2-1 victory, but all the headlines focused on Chelsea’s new loan signing Joao Felix who received a straight red card in the 58th minute for a shocking challenge on Kenny Tete.
Chelsea have scored 1.44 goals at home per game this season and Fulham have scored 1.4 goals per game on the road. The visitors have also only failed to score in four games this season which is the fifth-best record in the League. Fulham are also a threat from set pieces and they seem to get plenty. In their last away game versus Newcastle, they registered five corners which is a decent total considering how dominant Newcastle are at home. Chelsea also get lots of corners each game, especially at Stamford Bridge. The last home game saw the Blues register eleven corners and their visitors Crystal Palace got seven.
In the reverse fixture less than a month ago, both sides picked up four cards each including the Chelsea red. At home this season, Chelsea average 2.2 cards per 90 minutes and Fulham average 3.1 cards per 90 away from home. This tie should be quite feisty especially as Fulham are technically a European rival to Chelsea at this current moment. This exact bet also won the last time the sides faced.
