Reason for Fulham vs Chelsea Predictions
Fulham is 18th in the table with 11 points, leaving them four points from safety. Fulham is winless in five matches, but that doesn’t illustrate how solid they have looked during that spell. Only one of those five games ended in defeat, and Fulham come into this game on the back of four low-scoring stalemates. Their opponents’ quality has been high during that run, with the Cottagers holding Liverpool, Southampton, and Tottenham to draws. Fulham’s last five matches have featured fewer than three goals. Scott Parker’s side is unbeaten in four of their previous five home games, keeping clean sheets in three. Fulham did not keep a clean sheet in their last five matches against Chelsea, all of which they lost. Tom Cairney is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game. Ademola Lookman enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
Chelsea is unbeaten in 17 meetings against Fulham, their last defeat in this fixture coming in 2006. While that is a long run, four losses in Chelsea’s last six Premier League matches may bolster belief in Parker’s men that they can end that victory drought. Frank Lampard is under immense pressure, and anything but a win will only add to the discussion of Chelsea replacing him. The Blues have failed to win five of their eight away matches in the Premier League. Big-money attacking additions are struggling for Chelsea. It is a gelling period that Lampard cannot afford. Three of Chelsea’s last six away league matches featured fewer than three goals. Kai Havertz plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Christian Pulisic plays fantastic and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many teams are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is a tremendous player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. A great reinforcement, he was a favorite of RB Leipzig fans.
Chelsea is a big favorite in this match, they have to show strength, as the goal is a place among the three teams at the end of the season.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. This clash should be a real treat for all football fans.
