Chelsea v Fulham: Match Preview



Chelsea v Fulham; probable starters in bold, contenders in light.

Match Preview

While Chelsea have been excellent in the big games under Thomas Tuchel, their record against struggling sides threatens their hopes of finishing in the top four.

Tuchel’s team have wobbled at Stamford Bridge of late, drawing with Brighton and losing to West Brom, and need to sharpen up when they host Fulham.

An upset could be on the cards if Chelsea, who are without Antonio Rüdiger and Mateo Kovacic, are thinking about their upcoming semi-final second leg against Real Madrid. Fulham, who are sliding closer to the Championship, will hope their neighbours have other things on their mind. Jacob Steinberg
