Chelsea must return to winning ways today, as the Blues pay visit to close neighbours Fulham.

At the start of December, Chelsea momentarily went top of the league after beating Leeds United 3-1, but Chelsea’s stock has dropped since then with four Premier League defeats in six games, and Frank Lampard’s side is now languishing in 9th.

Fulham may seem beatable on paper, but Scott Parker’s side gave his former boss Jose Mourinho a dose of reality in their 1-1 draw in midweek and are now unbeaten in their last five games.

In his predictions for this weekend’s round of matches, Michael Owen has predicted a 2-1 in favour of Chelsea, but he admits it won’t be an easy game for the Blues.

He told the BetVictor: “Incredibly, Fulham have drawn their last 5 Premier League matches. Their late equaliser against Tottenham showed there’s no question about the fight in their side which is essential when you’re down at the bottom.

“Chelsea were pulled apart in their last league match at home to Manchester City. It was a Christmas period to forget for Frank Lampard’s men and they’ll want to get back to winning ways in their first away match of 2021.

“Although Fulham have been playing well, I just think Chelsea will have too much going forward and with that in mind, I can see them nicking it by the odd goal.”

Lampard’s best team to face Fulham
