Fulham vs Chelsea

Fulham have a tough game on their hands this Sunday at Craven Cottage as they go up against Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea. The Cottagers will be hoping for an improvement in their performances and results with the dismissal of Claudio Ranieri who was unable to fix their problems. Chelsea have been experiencing problems of their own this season, but the morale around their camp was boosted after they picked up a successful win against Tottenham Hotspur in their previous fixture. However, anything other than a win for Sarri’s men from this next fixture would undo all their hard work. When these sides first met this season, the Blues took the three points with a 2-0 win.

Fulham had big plans for their return to the Premier League, but so far their season has been filled with disappointment. Claudio Ranieri has been sacked due to their poor form and Scott Parker has stepped in as caretaker manager. The Cottagers head into the 29th match of the season sat in 19th place, in need of eight points just to catch up with 18th place. Fulham’s last win came five games ago when they beat Brighton 4-2, but since then they have suffered four defeats on the bounce. Their most recent loss came against Southampton who beat them 2-0. SkyBet has the hosts to win priced at 5/1.

The Cottagers have conceded a huge 63 goals this season which is by far the worst defensive record in the league. In all of their previous nine games, they have conceded at least two goals in each game. Over the last four games, Fulham have scored just one goal and have gone goalless in the other three games. Bet365 has them to score zero goals again priced at 5/4. Aleksandar Mitrovic has bagged ten goals for his side this season, making him their top goalscorer. The forward can be backed to score anytime on Sunday for a price of 9/5 with Betway.

Chelsea enters this game sat in sixth place after what has been a disappointing season, to say the least. With 13 points separating them from seventh they do not look in danger of falling any lower, but Sarri will be hoping his side can make a late push for fourth place which sits three points away. Despite their inconsistent form, the Blues picked up a big win against Tottenham Hotspur in their previous game, beating them 2-0. SkyBet has Chelsea to win priced at 8/15.

Chelsea arrives as the away side for this fixture which will come as a worry for Sarri, as their last three away league fixtures have ended in defeats. Even more, worrying for Sarri is the fact that his side scored zero goals in all three of those defeats. In all of Chelsea’s last four games have seen only one side score and you can back both teams not to score with Bet365 for a price of 19/20.
