Chelsea V Fulham Match Preview And Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

Chelsea will want to recover from a poor display against Tottenham last week with an improved performance versus Fulham on Sunday.

The Blues’ comfortable 4-0 win over ten-man PAOK last night would have certainly done them no harm, but they’ll want to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.

Manager Maurizio Sarri has a couple of injury concerns heading into the Fulham match. Eden Hazard was not available yesterday due to an ankle injury but the Belgian is expected to be fit for the weekend.

Victor Moses was in line for a recall against PAOK but the Nigerian winger is suffering from a back injury and could be a doubt for the Fulham game.

For the Cottagers, Claudio Ranieri will be without Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa who will miss the match after picking up a knock. Another central midfielder, Kevin McDonald, is also out of contention due to a muscular injury.

All the bookies have Chelsea as the likely winners for the derby with BetVictor having them 1/5 odds-on favourites. The longest odds for a draw is 7/1 with Betway, while the best price for a Fulham victory is 18/1 with Betfred.
