Chelsea host close neighbours Fulham at Stamford Bridge this evening, and the Blues will be aiming for a victory as the race for top four continues its dramatic form.
Leicester City got only a point against Southampton on Friday, while Liverpool will face Manchester United on Sunday.
Chelsea are currently seated in 4th place — 3 points ahead of West Ham in 5th and 4 points ahead of Liverpool in 4th. A win will also take Chelsea to 2 points off Leicester City.
Former Fulham and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Chelsea will beat struggling Fulham in this west London derby clash. However, Berbatov has predicted a slim 1-0 victory for Chelsea, as he believes that Chelsea’s focus will be on the Champions League clash with Real Madrid next week Wednesday.
Berbatov said in his prediction for Betfair: “West London derby! Unfortunately for my old team Fulham they are in a bad spot and don’t have a lot of momentum, whereas Chelsea are very strong, and with the way they play I think they will beat Scott Parker’s side.
“That being said, it will be tight and with Chelsea’s match with Real Madrid coming up it could be a good time to play them.”
