Chelsea vs Fulham team news

Chelsea

Chelsea played out a five-goal thriller away at Luton in their last league game. Cole Palmer opened the scoring for the Blues in the twelfth minute and shortly before the break, Chukwunonso Madueke made it 2-0. Once Palmer made it 3-0 in the seventieth minute the game appeared to be over, but Luton made the Chelsea fans sweat as they scored twice in the last ten minutes to make the final scoreline 3-2.

Nicolas Jackson won't be available for the Fulham game as he is on international duty, while Trevoh Chalobah, Lesley Ugochukwu, Carney Chukwuemeka, Ben Chilwell, Robert Sanchez, Romeo Lavia, Marc Cucurella, Reece James and Wesley Fofana are all injured so we could see Chelsea strengthen their squad in the January transfer window.

Predicted Lineup: Petrović (GK), Silva, Disasi, Gusto, Colwill, Gallagher, Palmer, Caicedo, Broja, Madueke & Nkunku

Fulham

Fulham fell behind after just five minutes at home to Arsenal and their fans might have feared that a hammering was on the cards, but they couldn't have been further from the truth. Raul Jimenez and Bobby De-Cordova-Reid both scored for Fulham as the hosts turned the game in their favour and claimed all three points.

Adama Traore and Tim Ream could miss out this weekend due to injury, while Calvin Bassey, Fode Ballo-Toure and Alex Iwobi are all away at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Predicted Lineup: Leno (GK), Castagne, Adarabioyo, Robinson, Diop, Cairney, Palhinha, Willian, De Cordova-Reid, Jiménez & Pereira

Player to Watch: Cole Palmer

Palmer continues to impress in the blue of Chelsea following his summer transfer from Manchester City.

The England international top scores for Chelsea with eight Premier League goals, four of which have come from the penalty spot. We're backing Chelsea to win on Saturday against their local rivals Fulham and a big part of that is down to the form of Cole Palmer.

We will have our eyes on Palmer this weekend as he could well turn out to be the match-winner with Nicolas Jackson at the Africa Cup of Nations.
