Fulham V Chelsea – Team News and Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

Chelsea will have been boosted by their win over Tottenham on Wednesday night, allowing speculation over Maurizio Sarri’s future to die down for now, at least.

The Blues have not won away from home in the league since the 1-0 win at Crystal Palace in late December. They will want to put that right when they face Fulham on Sunday.

The Cottagers look destined for the drop with caretaker manager Scott Parker’s side now ten points from safety following their 2-0 defeat at Southampton.

Chelsea are without three players due to injury currently. Danny Drinkwater (tendon), Gary Cahill (back) and Marco van Ginkel (knee) are all out of action.

The biggest question mark will be over Kepa Arrizabalaga’s selection. The keeper was dropped by Sarri for the Spurs game after his behaviour during the Carabao Cup Final.

Fulham have two players on the treatment table. Defender Alfie Mawson has a knee injury that could rule him out for the rest of the season. Goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli is still sidelined with a knock.

The bookmakers are backing Chelsea to get the three points. They are 8/15 with Betway while a draw is 18/5 at Unibet. A Fulham win is currently 6/1 with BetVictor.

Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Fulham:

Caballero, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Pedro, Higuain, Hazard

Fulham’s Predicted XI:

Rico, Christie, Nordtveit, Ream, Bryan, Chambers, McDonald, Anguissa, Cairney, Mitrovic, Babel

Predicted Score – 3-0 to Chelsea
