Fulham's 8 points from 5 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 8th position. Chelsea sit in a healthy 3rd in the league, and have picked up 12 points from their 5 premiership games.

Fulham are doing very well at home (Not counting the woeful Carling cup match a couple of days ago), But they also have a long injury list which includes some top players, I am sure that with a near fully fit squad Fulham could give Chelsea a hard game but with the overall quality of Chelsea and the injury problems at Fulham it will prove too much for the home side and Chelsea will run away with the win.
