Fulham vs. Chelsea Match Analysis and Prediction

Chelsea will be looking to overturn their misfortunes in the Premier League this weekend against local rivals Fulham. The match schedules for Saturday at Craven Cottage, with a kickoff at 8:30 pm.

The Blues dropped down to ninth on the table, having been victorious in only one of their last six matches in the league. On the other hand, Fulham has drawn each of their last five matches to sit 18th in the table.

Fulham was previously scheduled to take on Chelsea on Friday evening before their match was postponed. It forced the side to take on Tottenham with their previously postponed match earlier.

Scott Parker shared the spoils against Jose Mourinho with Ivan Cavaleiro cancelling out an initially equalized strike by Harry Kane. The last win for the Cottagers goes back to November while being two points behind 17th placed Brighton. Fulham drew against Liverpool, Brighton, Newcastle, Southampton, and Tottenham.
