Chelsea has been in poor form with four losses from six games recently and Frank Lampard’s men will be looking to change the tide of their season. Chelsea will be looking to outshine Fulham and go within touching distance of the Premier League top four.

Fulham on the other hand have not beaten The Blues in the last 15 years. This sets the stage for a thrilling encounter as Scott Parker’s men will look to upset the London side.

Liverpool previously have held champions Liverpool to a draw and have proven to be difficult opponents against some of the league’s best teams. Their defence is tough and they have conceded only three more goals (24) than Chelsea (21) this season.

In terms of firing power, however, Chelsea is the third highest-scoring team in the Premier League this season (32) behind Liverpool (37) and Manchester United (34).

Additionally, Chelsea rested some of their players for a full week while Fulham may be showing up with tired legs on Saturday after they played their hearts out on Wednesday.

Team news

Frank Lampard will be buoyed by the news that Reece James and Andreas Christensen return to the squad this weekend. Their return will improve their options at the back.

Also, while there are still some doubts, N’Golo Kante may be fit enough to feature against Fulham on Saturday.

On the other hand, The Cottagers have no serious injury concern. They will have the same team that stole a point from Tottenham on hand.

Predictions

Chelsea is the likely victors of this fixture but will have to dig in deep to find a win against their hosts.

Verdict: Fulham 0-2 Chelsea
