Fulham vs Chelsea prediction, betting tips & odds

Kick-off: 1230, 10/09/2022

Stadium: Craven Cottage

TV: BT Sport

Fulham will be smelling blood ahead of facing a wounded Chelsea side at Craven Cottage and the stage is set for a west-London derby upset.

The Blues have struggled on the road so far this season and now must cope without sacked manager Thomas Tuchel in what promises to be a fiery atmosphere.

We feel 4.0 for a home win is too tempting to turn down in our first Fulham vs Chelsea prediction.

Fulham Odds

Fulham boss Marco Silva will be more than happy with how his players have responded to the club’s Premier League return.

The Cottagers have picked up eight points from six outings, with seven of those secured on home turf.

Following a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at this venue, there have been wins over Brentford and Brighton, both of which have made bright starts themselves.

Even in their away fixtures, Fulham have been competitive, drawing at Wolves before 2-1 losses against Arsenal and Tottenham.

Against Spurs, an 83rd-minute curler from Aleksandar Mitrovic set up a nervy finale and the six-goal hitman forced Hugo Lloris into a superb save with two minutes left.

Silva admitted Fulham were not at their best and that Tottenham deserved their victory, but commented: “It was good to see at least we fought until the end.

“We believed we can equalise not playing even close to our best level, so it is good coming here, playing a very good side, even not playing our best level we matched them until the last minute.”

The Cottagers have only kept one clean sheet so far, but having Mitrovic means they will always be a threat going forward.

Looking at the 6.75 for a home win and both teams to score.

Last Fulham line-up: Leno, Tete, Adarabioyo, Ream, Robinson, Reed, Kebano, Pereira, Palhinha, Mitrovic, Decordova-Reid.

Chelsea Odds

Tuchel was axed just hours after Chelsea were beaten 1-0 at Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.

That shock decision came only 15 months after he led the Blues to glory in Europe’s elite club competition.

The club’s new owners spent a one-window Premier League record of £273million on transfers this summer, but those changes have led to a disjointed start.

Chelsea have enjoyed domestic wins over Everton, Leicester and West Ham, plus they played well in a 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

However, away defeats at Leeds and Southampton had alarm bells ringing and Tuesday’s setback proved the final straw.

Tuchel told BT Sport: “We are clearly not where we need to be. At the moment, everything is missing.”

He vowed “to find solutions for the next match” but will not now get the chance, with Brighton boss Graham Potter favourite to replace him in the next Chelsea manager odds.

Footballers can sometimes rally round when the chips are down but the Blues definitely look vulnerable in this fixture.

Let’s add 13.0 for a 2-1 home win to our Fulham vs Chelsea betting tips.

Last Chelsea line-up: Kepa, Chilwell, James, Koulibaly, Azpilicueta, Fofana, Kovacic, Mount, Havertz, Aubameyang, Sterling.
