Chelsea vs. Fulham Match Analysis and Prediction

Chelsea has a task in hand to cement their top-four finish race this week in the Premier League as they welcome Fulham. The match schedules for Saturday at Stamford Bridge, with a kickoff at 7:30 pm.

The Blues head into the clash on the back of a sensational 1-1 draws with Real Madrid in the Champions League, whereas Scott Parker’s denied all three points against Arsenal in a heartbreaking fashion.

No one expected Chelsea to turn up at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg of the Champions League. But, unfortunately, Timo Werner failed to capitalize on two critical moments in the first half that could have sealed the seat in the finals.

However, Pulisic turned up with a stunner that eased past Thirbaut Courtouis. However, Karim Benzema equalized with an incredible overhead kick to make both teams share the spoils in the first leg.

Moreover, Thomas Tuchel continues having an incredible season at the continental level. Next week, a visit by the Los Blancos brings a major test for his managerial career at Stamford Bridge. After seven years, the precious away goal could prove vital for the Blues in their bid for a Champions League title.

VAR came under heavy controversy last weekend after a disallowed Dani Ceballos goal. It had to take a Josh Maja’s penalty to break the deadlock. However, an Eddie Nketiah last-minute goal saw Scott Parker share the spoils.
