Fulham are playing at home against Chelsea in search of the first win of the team this season in a London derby. Over the week The Cottagers lost with 2-0 the away game versus Southampton and, as expected, they fired Claudio Ranieri. The champions with Leicester in season 2015/16 couldn’t apply a winning mentality in the squad of Fulham, which lost eight of the previous ten fixtures, conceding at least two goals.
Chelsea continued with the good performance from the lost final in Carabao Cup, but this time winning against Tottenham with 2-0. Although The Blues lost the previous three away fixtures in the Premier League, they are still the favourite for the bookmakers for the game on Sunday. Fulham are ten points behind the 17th in the standings – Southampton, and avoiding relegation seems almost impossible, while Chelsea are in the fight for Top 4 and participation in the Champions League next season.
Maurizio Sarri’s players showed fantastic teamwork against Spurs and looked like an entirely different team. They were aggressive versus Tottenham from the first minute, and we think that they will try to do the same versus Fulham. The Cottagers were behind in the score at the end of the first half of the previous four games in the Premier League, and we think that the tendency will be kept.
