Chelsea V Fulham: Preview, Team News And Betting Odds

Although Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was frustrated with not picking up a win in Madrid on Tuesday night, he would have been delighted with the performance.

The Blues boss will, though, likely rotate his side for the clash against Fulham this weekend ahead of the second leg of the Champions League semi-final next week.

In terms of team news, Mateo Kovacic remains the only fitness doubt for Tuchel with the Croatian international still struggling with a hamstring problem that has kept him out of the last five games.

For Fulham, manager Scott Parker has four players unavailable. Kenny Tete (positive virus test), Marek Rodak (finger), Terence Kongolo and Tom Cairney (both knee) are all currently out of contention.

At the bookmakers, Chelsea are the heavy favourites with William Hill pricing them at 1/2 odds-on for the win. A draw is 17/5 with Betfair while a victory for the Cottagers is 7/1 at BetVictor.

Predicted Score – 2-0 to Chelsea
