Fulham vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
The stadiums of Fulham and Chelsea are about half an hour walk apart. Both Craven Cottage and Stamford Bridge are located in the Fulham district. Sunday afternoon, Fulham and Chelsea meet on the Thames.
Fulham has nothing to lose when the West London Derby with Chelsea is played on Sunday afternoon. The Cottagers are nineteenth in the Premier League and relegation certainly seems to be the formation of Claudio Ranieri. Last season clubs needed more than 33 points not to relegate from the Premier League and I can not imagine that Fulham still doubles the current score of 17 in the last ten games. For Fulham it is important to grab as many points as possible in the final of the competition and then The Cottagers hope to compete again in the Championship for promotion next season. It is striking that Fulham is already almost certain that it is downgrading, because with this team was the expectation that The Cottagers at least until the last weeks would compete for enforcement.
The return of Fulham in the Premier League did not work out as The Cottagers hoped. Of the 28 league matches, Fulham lost no less than nineteen, and only Huddersfield Town walked more often as losing from the field. The last four matches that Ranieri’s team played were lost. For example, the away game at Southampton was scheduled on Wednesday-evening and The Cottagers lost 2-0 at St. Mary’s Stadium. The fact that Fulham loses 2-0 at a relegation as Southampton actually says enough about The Cottagers.
For Chelsea Sunday the third game in London in a week’s time on the program. Last Sunday, The Blues on Wembley played the much-discussed Carabao Cup final against Manchester City and on Wednesday-evening Chelsea got a visit from Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge. All eyes were of course focused on Kepa Arrizabalaga, who had to take place against the Spurs on the bench. Maurizio Sarri has announced that the Spaniard is still his first goalkeeper and on Craven Cottage Kepa is just standing between the poles. With Willy Caballero under the bar, Chelsea won a 2-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday and the Blues still have sufficient prospects for fourth place thanks to the victory at Spurs.
Chelsea is currently sixth in the Premier League, but the deficit on both Arsenal and Manchester United is minimal. In addition, The Blues have played a match less than the competitors. This is a home match against Brighton & Hove Albion and that game must normally be won by Sarri’s team. That game will only be on the program in a few weeks. First, Chelsea has to play the away match at Fulham and The Blues have been unbeaten against The Cottagers for eighteen games. The last defeat of Chelsea against Fulham dates from 2006.
