Although Chelsea faces defeat in their debut last week on Sunday against Tottenham, they managed to top the table after beating POAK at 4-0. They will be looking to carry forward their winning streak. Whereas the games which Chelsea lost are the ones that Fulham was able to defeat. On the other hand, Fulham, have lost 9 of their 13 games since returning to the top flight, winning just twice. They have the worst defensive record in the league with 33 goals conceded in this period, and even Ranieri could not stem that flow last weekend as they conceded 2 goals at home to a Southampton side.
Memory down the lane, Chelsea have won their last three meetings with Fulham, and they have lost just one of their last 26 Premier League games against them. Interestingly, the last time these teams met in the Premier League Andre Schurrle, not a Fulham player, netted a hat-trick for Chelsea in a 3-1 win at Craven Cottage. No side has had more different goalscorers in the Premier League this season than Chelsea (11), while Fulham has had fewer than any other side (4).
Chelsea: Arrizabalaga (GK), Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Willian, Morata, Hazard.
Fulham: Rico (GK), Christie, Odoi, Mawson, Le Marchand, Chambers, Seri, Schurrle, Cairney, Sessegnon, Mitrovic.
My PlayerzPot XI:
Chelsea has a form that raises high expectations and Chelsea can deliver them. A draw can be on the line.
