Fulham vs Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea face west London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday, giving the Blues a day extra than expected to prepare for the match. The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, however, due to Fulham's rearranged clash with Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday, the fixture has been moved back 24 hours.

The extra day's rest and preparation will be sure to benefit Frank Lampard's side and gives the injured players a little more time to prove their fitness to the boss.

Fulham come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.A first-half goal from star striker Harry Kane for Tottenham Hotspur was cancelled out by a second-half strike from Portugal international Ivan Cavaleiro for Fulham.

Defensively they look much more compact and there’s always the right distance between the back five and the midfield. They can play with quite a defensive set up due to the counter attacking pace of players like Ademola Lookman and Ivan Cavaleiro.

Chelsea, on the other hand, beat Morecambe 4-0 on Sunday in the third round of the FA Cup. Goals from midfielder Mason Mount, striker Timo Werner, winger Callum Hudson-Odoi and attacker Kai Havertz ensured next-round qualification for Frank Lampard's Chelsea.

From title contenders to lingering down in ninth place, it’s been quite the decline for Chelsea Football Club in recent weeks. It’s difficult to pinpoint any one major problem that they’re suffering with, and yet while you can understand that this is the most competitive campaign we’ve seen in a long time within this league, there’s also the understanding that a team of superstars such as this should be performing at a much higher level on a far more consistent basis.

In 17 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Chelsea hold the clear advantage. They have won 11 games and drawn six.

Fulham Team News

Fulham will not be able to field Ruben Loftus-Cheek, as he is on loan from Chelsea and cannot play against his parent club. Other than Loftus-Cheek, manager Scott Parker is expected to have a fully-fit squad at his disposal.

Picking up draws has been the name of the game recently for the Cottagers and they’ve been tough to break down defensively because of it. Their draw against champions Liverpool set them on a trend of steady results as they went on to pick up a point against Brighton, Newcastle and Southampton before beating local rivals QPR in the FA Cup. Then, in their last outing, they battled their way to a 1-1 draw against Tottenham in their first Premier League game of 2021.

Chelsea Team News

Earlier in the week, Reece James was a major doubt for the trip to Craven Cottage, however, it looks like the 21-year-old right-back may be in contention for a start after the England international was spotted training on Tuesday. The young defender has nailed down the right-back slot this season replacing experienced club captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Like James, the news on Christensen is positive. Following a two-week absence from the team the Danish centre-back is looking like he is ready for a recall to the side should Lampard require his services. Kante was not available for selection against Morecambe in the FA Cup over the weekend following a hamstring issue picked up in the 3-1 defeat against Manchester City on January 3.
