Football – England Premier League
English Premier League – Fulham v Chelsea on 12/01/2023
Chelsea’s Graham Potter’s future starts to be in doubt if Fulham manages to beat Chelsea in this standalone Premier League fixture.
However, coach Marco Silva will field the strongest team possible for the London derby. Palhinha of Portugal and Mitrovic are both back in the starting lineup, although Neeskens Kebano is still dealing with an Achilles injury.
The Blues, on the other hand, are looking to bounce back from a crushing FA Cup loss to Man City (0-4), but given the number of absences in the away side, I don’t think this will be an easy match for them.
Perhaps, they may not take home more than one point from this midweek match. The likes of Kante, Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Fofana, James, and Chilwell are all absent due to injury. Raheem Sterling ought to be added to the starting lineup.
Both teams concede a lot of goals these days in as much as they score as well. Due to the defensive lapses of both teams, I think they should be able to fire the ball int theirr respective nets while the best team of the day wins the match.
Fulham – won 3 Premier League matches on a spin and looking for their 4th against Chelsea. But, Fulham will be without top goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic as he is suspended following his fifth yellow card against Leicester City could massively dent Fulham’s attacking options.
Chelsea – the Blues are undefeated in their last 21 matches against Fulham in all competitions, but they have an injury crisis with most of their first-team players either out or could be in doubt against Fulham.
Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic were added to the latest injury list, Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is definitely out and Aubameyang did not play against Man City on Sunday is in doubt too.
Away win for Chelsea priced above the 2.00 mark, which is rare! Clearly, bookies suggest Chelsea may not be able to win this game.
Fulham’s last 5 Premier League games at home they had only conceded 3 goals, whilst Chelsea’s last 5 domestic matches could only score just 2 goals. This game heading for a lower number of goals it seems.
