Chelsea vs Fulham Match Preview and Team News
Chelsea is playing badly this season. They are only a mid-table team with ten points fewer than the Champions League spots. Chelsea won only one of the previous six games in all competitions. They played 0-0 on the road against Liverpool in the last match. That game was fairly even, so it is no wonder the teams split the points. Chelsea has problems with scoring goals since they scored only five goals in the last ten matches. Also, eight of those ten games went under 2.5 goals. Kai Havertz plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Chelsea used this transfer window to sign many players. So far, they signed Mykhaylo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, Noni Madueke, David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, and eventually Enzo Fernandez. Chelsea has big problems with missing players. N’Golo Kante, Raheem Sterling, Denis Zakaria, Edouard Mendy, Armando Broja, and Wesley Fofana will not play in the upcoming game.
Fulham is playing above all expectations this season. They are 7th on the table with 31 points from 21 matches, so most of their 2022/23 season goals are fulfilled. Fulham is without a win in the last three games. In the previous match, they played 1-1 at home in FA Cup against Sunderland. The home side had 69% ball possession and 22 shots on the goal, but the guests defended well, so Fulham failed to secure progress to the 1/8 final. Fulham scored only five goals in the last six matches. Five of the previous six games went under 2.5 goals. Andreas Pereira has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Solomon is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and his greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
