Chelsea will be away to Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday evening, with the Blues hoping to come back from a three game winless run in the Premier League.

Chelsea have won just once in their last six Premier League games, and are currently 9th in the league. A win for the Blues in this game is definitely a must.

BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted a 2-0 win for Chelsea, as he revealed that Chelsea’s main problem this season has been a lack of confidence.

Mark Lawrenson said: “Fulham have drawn their past five league games, which shows their improvement even if they are still not winning games – they have made themselves far more difficult to beat, and are a lot harder to play against.

“Chelsea have hit a bit of a sticky patch in the league so last weekend’s FA Cup win over Morecambe will have given them a bit of a lift – in that they played well, scored some goals and won.

“I’m expecting them to win at Craven Cottage too. I think part of the problem for the Blues was a lack of confidence – a bit like Arsenal when they were on that bad run before Christmas – but lack of ability is not the issue for Frank Lampard’s side.”
