Chelsea Betting Preview
Chelsea currently sits in 10th place in the standings having picked up 29 points so far this season. In the last game against Liverpool, the defense was strong not giving up a goal, but the offense couldn’t get anything going, and that led to the 0-0 draw. Chelsea had 53 percent of the possession but only two shots on target. Enzo Fernandez has been signed by Chelsea but it’s unclear if they will throw him out there in this game. If he does play, he might come off the bench. João Félix is still serving a suspension for his red card and he won’t be able to play in this game. In this game, Chelsea needs to be the team get that gets out to a fast start and put the pressure on the Fulham defense.
Fulham Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Fulham who sits in 7th place in the standings having picked up 31 points. Last Saturday, Fulham faced off against Sunderland in the FA Cup, and the game ended in a 1-1 draw. In the last Premier League game against Tottenham, the offense managed zero goals, and they ended up losing 1-0. Fulham comes into this game healthy, and they should have some confidence, at least with the defense. The offense has been a little inconsistent as of late and needs to step up here. Neeskens Kebano is the only player that is currently hurt and they won’t be able to go in this game. The team also did sign Sasa Lukic, and he should be a big boost to the front line of this team.
Shane’s Free Pick
Goals are going to be hard to come by here. Fulham’s defense has been strong heading into this game, and I don’t see them giving up more than a goal. I don’t trust Fulham to find offensive success though, and it wouldn’t shock me if they don’t even score here. This game will either end 1-0 or 1-1 and the under 2.5 goals are going to cash.
