Kick-Off: Sunday, December 2, 2018. 12:00 GMT
Venue: Stamford Bridge
It’s Match Day 14 in the Premier League, and Chelsea will have a home game against Fulham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
Chelsea enter this game 4th on the table with 28 points have been unable to get a win in the last two league games, as the Blues have won three, drawn two and lost one of their last six league matches.
Fulham are languishing in 20th position and have just eight points, and the Londoners have won just once in their last six league games. However, Chelsea will be facing a different Fulham side who won their last game 3-2 against under new boss Claudio Ranieri. Ranieri’s second game in charge takes him back to Stamford Bridge, where he was manager for four years.
Fulham always have it difficult at the Bridge and their only success at their neighbours in the last 54 years came in the Second Division back in 1979.
Fulham’s last win over Chelsea came in March 2006, when Luis Boa Morte’s goal gave them a 1-0 win at Craven Cottage.
Chelsea haven’t gone three Premier League games without a win since September 2016, and the Blues are unbeaten at Stamford Bridge since April.
All indications point to a Chelsea victory, and the Blues are unbeaten the last 16 times they have faced Fulham in the league, and have lost only one of their 26 Premier League matches against the Cottagers (W15, D10).
My prediction: Chelsea 2 vs 0 Fulham
