The Premier League is back in action with another round of matches this week as Fulham lock horns with Graham Potter’s Chelsea side in an important clash at the Craven Cottage on Thursday. Fulham are currently in seventh place in the Premier League standings and have consistently punched above their weight so far this season. The home side eased past Hull City by a 2-0 margin this week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.
Chelsea, on the other hand, are in 10th place in the league table at the moment and have struggled in recent months. The Blues suffered a shock 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.
Chelsea have stuttered under Graham Potter this season and are in desperate need of a shot in the arm. The likes of Mason Mount and Kai Havertz have flattered to deceive this season and will need to prove their mettle in this fixture.
Fulham have a good squad at their disposal and can pack a punch on their day. Both teams are fairly evenly matched at the moment and could play out a draw this week.
Prediction: Fulham 2-2 Chelsea
This match will start from 1:30 am
This match will take place on 13 January 2023
The 78th minute of Fulham’s victory over Leicester last week was one that Cottagers supporters wanted to forget, as it saw star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic incur his fifth booking of the season – ruling him out of the visit of Chelsea through suspension.
However, Silva has no other fresh concerns to work around for Thursday’s derby, where Neeskens Kebano will remain out with his Achilles injury, but Shane Duffy will hope to return following an illness. Meanwhile, Manor Solomon made just his second appearance in Fulham colours since joining from Shakhtar Donetsk against Hull and will pine for a more active role in this game.
Solomon’s prospects of starting are slim to none, though, as Silva reintroduces Willian into the final third alongside Mitrovic’s deputy, Carlos Vinicius.
