Chelsea vs Fulham live preview Premier League

Match Stats


In the aftermath of their convincing 4-0 victory over Preston North End in the FA Cup, Chelsea faces a challenging trip to Middlesbrough in the Championship. Despite Middlesbrough's earlier struggles with injuries, ineligible players, and international call-ups, they unexpectedly secured a memorable triumph over Chelsea in the EFL Cup, with Hayden Hackney playing a crucial role. As Chelsea looks ahead to potential revenge and a chance at Wembley, their immediate focus is on securing a third successive Premier League win under Pochettino's leadership. Despite recent successes over Crystal Palace and Luton Town, Chelsea remains in 10th place in the standings, just three points behind seventh-placed Brighton & Hove Albion.


On the other hand, Fulham's journey in the FA Cup preceded their EFL Cup semi-final against Liverpool. Following a 1-0 victory over Rotherham United in the FA Cup, Fulham briefly held a one-goal lead against Liverpool at Anfield, courtesy of a surprise Willian opener. However, Liverpool eventually equalized, and Fulham now looks to turn the tie around in the second leg at Craven Cottage on January 24. Silva's immediate challenge is addressing Fulham's poor away form in the Premier League, having suffered defeats in their last four road matches, conceding at least three goals each time. Despite a recent win against Arsenal, Fulham seeks to improve their away record and hasn't won on rival turf since the opening weekend of the season. The historical context notes Chelsea's 2-0 win at Craven Cottage in October and the fact that Fulham hasn't beaten Chelsea at home since October 1979.


This weekend, Chelsea faces a considerable challenge with several key players sidelined, including Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Robert Sanchez, Trevoh Chalobah, Lesley Ugochukwu, Reece James, Romeo Lavia, and potentially Christopher Nkunku, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Benoit Badiashile. Despite Pochettino's decision to manage Armando Broja's workload in the previous match, he might return to the starting XI. Fulham, dealing with injuries to Adama Traore and concerns about Harrison Reed, could see Tom Cairney returning. AFCON call-ups rule out Alex Iwobi, Calvin Bassey, and Fode Ballo-Toure, but Silva is likely to maintain most of the starting lineup from the previous game unless fatigue becomes a factor.
