Fulham FC Vs Chelsea FC Betting Tips
Since Fulham’s lone victory in the tournament against Chelsea in March 2006 at Craven Cottage, Chelsea has gone 19 games without losing to Fulham in the Premier League. For the first time against Fulham, Chelsea aims for seven straight victories in the league.
The previous record, which was set between 1950 and 1960, was tied with the current run of six at Craven Cottage in January. The only time Fulham triumphed at Stamford Bridge in a top-flight league game was in March 1964, when players like Sir Bobby Robson, Johnny Haynes, George Cohen, and Alan Mullery were on the team.
On the other occasion, Fulham left Stamford Bridge with all three points under the direction of former Blues manager Bobby Campbell in October 1979 in the Second Division.
The team led by Scott Parker has committed the most fouls in the Premier League (423). The Cottagers have lost just one of their last ten away Premier League games since losing 2-0 at Man City on December 5th (Aston Villa on 4 April).
They won at Goodison Park and Anfield during that run, drew at Tottenham, and lost to Arsenal. Of the 43 Premier League goals Fulham has given up this season, 42 have come from within the penalty area. Scott Parker will manage this game at Stamford Bridge for the first time. He last competed in the premier league in September 2013, when Chelsea defeated Fulham 2-0.
Prediction: Chelsea will win this match by 2 – 1

Since 2014, Fulham has failed to win back-to-back Premier League titles, relegating to the Championship after each of their previous two promotions. However, Marco Silva’s team has had a successful opening to the 2022–23 campaign, earning five points from their first three games to move them up to seventh place in the standings.
Prior to recording a 3-2 victory over Brentford last weekend, Fulham began their new Premier League campaign with back-to-back draws against Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the game-winning goal at Craven Cottage in the 90th minute of the match.
The London club’s EFL Cup exit was shocking after a 2-0 loss to Crawley Town on Tuesday, but this season, the league will take precedence for the Cottagers.
Although Fulham is well aware of the importance of the challenge they must complete on Saturday, they took the game to Liverpool on the first weekend of the new campaign, and they undoubtedly have the players to cause Chelsea problems.
Wesley Fofana’s transfer saga, in which Chelsea hopes to sign the defender for at least £70 million, will unavoidably dominate the buildup to this match.
Both teams could do without the pauses, though, as they had only won one game during their first triple-header.
After winning 1-0 against Everton and leading Tottenham Hotspur in the extra period of the London derby, everything appeared to be going well for Chelsea. Despite Thomas Tuchel’s assurances to the contrary, they were duly defeated 3-0 by Leeds United after their opponents scored a last-second equalizer.
Even though Tuchel will probably add three more players to his first-team squad over the approaching week, this Chelsea club still feels in transition and hasn’t found a solution to their goal-scoring issues.
Kai Havertz has failed to make an impact in the final third; only Raheem Sterling has played to his full potential despite midfield ailments.
Fulham FC vs Chelsea FC Team News
- Fulham FC
Harry Wilson and Manor Solomon will be sidelined for Fulham, and Neeskens Kebano is still a question because of a groin injury. The big hitters will be back for this game even though Cottagers manager Silva made several changes for Tuesday’s game against Crawley.
With Harrison Reed and Joao Palhinha expected to start in central midfield, Andreas Pereira, Bobby Decordova-Reid, Jay Stansfield, and Mitrovic will again form the front line.
Issa Diop, Shane Duffy, and Kevin Mbabu are just a few of Fulham’s defensive alternatives, but all three are expected to start the match against the Gunners on the bench.
- Chelsea FC
Fofana will remain ineligible for Leicester, while Rodgers must decide on Youri Tielemans, who is still rumored to be leaving the club. Maddison, according to Rodgers, “had a twinge” in training on Wednesday, and the Belgian may be called up in his stead.
Harvey Barnes might be able to keep his spot in the starting lineup after enduring 90 minutes of play through with a leg injury versus Stockport County in the middle of the week. If Rodgers switches to a back three, Caglar Soyuncu will rejoin the starting lineup, with Ayoze Perez expected to be the player to depart.
