Chelsea lost a London derby against Tottenham at the Wembley Stadium last weekend as Spurs defeated the Blues 3-1 in what was Chelsea’s first loss of the season in all competitions.
Chelsea have another derby clash this weekend, and this time the Blues will be hosting Fulham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
Chelsea who are fourth on the table will host the league’s bottom team, and Michael Owen is expecting an easy victory for Maurizio Sarri’s side.
The BetVictor brand ambassador has predicted a 3-1 win for Chelsea.
He said: “West London rivals Chelsea and Fulham meet at the Bridge with the visitors finally able to smile following a 3-2 win over Southampton under new manager Claudio Ranieri. Whether the Tinkerman can follow up his tremendous success with Leicester is extremely doubtful but the Cottagers feel he can at least lead them to safety this season.
“Fulham are still at the foot of the table but with little between a whole host of clubs they are certainly far from doomed. Aleksandar Mitrovic was highly influential in helping Fulham to playoff success last season and his goals are going to be equally important in the race for survival. He bagged a brace last week and now has seven so far this season. However, the task will be tough as despite an uncharacteristic performance when meekly losing 3-1 against Spurs last week the Pensioners are still enjoying a productive season.
“With only one reverse they are handily placed to secure a top four finish and are still London’s leading club at present. They can be excused an off day and I fully expect them to bounce back in style with a victory.”
