Fulham vs Chelsea Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Fulham vs Chelsea will be a very interesting game to see. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
Fulham have actually improved defensively and have been conceding less goals that we expect them to. They had multiple unders in the last few games. On the other end, Chelsea are all about defense right now. The team simply doesn't score goals and it is a huge problem. The important fact it that they do not concede in most matches either.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
This is a tough match to call. Chelsea are absolutely unpredictable. They won over Brighton last week but it was a cup game and Brighton were nowhere near their usual level. We think that Chelsea will not be that much better than Fulham when they are on the road in this game. They may win it but Fulham have equal chances. Our safest option here is the draw.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
There is a possibility for a 0-0 draw in this match. Chelsea have not been great this season. We pick the 1-1 option because it is time for them to start scoring. They have a talented offense but they just have to start finishing better. When we compare the Fulham vs Chelsea line ups, we see a huge advantage in strength for Chelsea, on paper. They will be without a huge number of key players, however, and this makes us believe in the draw.
Fulham vs Chelsea Team Previews
Fulham continued forward in the EFL Cup mid-week and right now, the team looks confident. They only lost one match in the last five and it was against Man City. The team has looked great at home since the start of the season and they will have their chances against this broken Chelsea. Three players will miss this game – Adarabioyo, Benda, and Traore.
The problems at Chelsea never end and the team is about to have another tough match. If we start listing the injuries at Chelsea, it would take all day. Some of the notable ones are Chalobah, James, Chukwuemeka, Fofana, Nkunku, Chilwell, and others. Chelsea are in a very bad place and their biggest problem is the attack, which scored a single goal in September.
