Fulham will play host to London rivals Chelsea this Sunday afternoon in Premier League action.
The home side have a new man in the dug-out in the form of Scott Parker after the club sacked Claudio Ranieri during the week. Their four-loss streak seemingly the reasoning for his departure. Meanwhile, Chelsea restored some faith as they beat rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in a midweek clash.
Fulham are underdogs for this match despite having home advantage. SkyBet have priced them at 5/1 to win. Fulham’s recent 2-0 loss to Southampton proved to be the final match for Claudio Ranieri who left the team ten points deep in the relegation zone. Fulham have scored just once in their last four matches however at home they have been a little more successful. With goals in four of their last five at Craven Cottage, one man hoping to improve the goal scoring record will be Aleksander Mitrovic. The striker has already managed 10 goals this season and is Fulham’s biggest hope of catching up to 17th. He is 9/5 to score anytime.
Chelsea shouldn’t have too many issues with this match and are priced at 8/15. The Blues finally found a stroke of luck as they defeated London rivals Tottenham during the week. A goal from Pedro and a spectacular own goal from Kieran Trippier saw Sarri’s side over the line. Eden Hazard impressed during that match, as he has done so much in recent weeks. The Belgian has 12 goals in the league and is 11/10 to score anytime and add to that tally this Sunday.
