Premier League

Craven Cottage, London

Preview

The cottagers welcome the mighty Blues in their own backyard as an exciting Premier League battle of two contrasting tales is upon us.
For many, Fulham were considered the favourites to get relegated when the 2022 season started after gaining promotion into the top flight last season, whereas prior to the season’s start, the London Blues were potentially looked at as strong title contenders. The story, however, has been completely contradictory thus far.

While Fulham are enjoying and continuing their honeymoon run in the Premier League, Chelsea’s destiny has been hampered by injuries and hierarchy disputes, with Graham Potter still struggling to find his ideal formation and team combination following the controversial sacking of former manager Thomas Tuchel.

The match looks like a perfect opportunity for Marco Silva’s men to hunt down a vulnerable Chelsea side, gain all three possible points from the Blues, and solidify their claim to a possible Europa League spot next season. For Chelsea and Graham Potter, the objective would be to not slip up further in the table and try to secure valuable points if they want any chance of qualifying for Europe next season.
