Form.....

Fulham have lost just once in their last six home games, winning four and drawing the other one. These games have seen the Cottagers score just 7 goals, though they have conceded 4.

Chelsea have an average recent record on the road, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Blues's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 5 goals for and 4 against.

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.

Prediction

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.

After a mid week touch up you might find a fired up Fulham team ready to take it to their closest rivalst. Park the team bus in front of goal, play that defensive game, hussle them everytime they get the ball and hang on for the 90 minute ride. Good luck guys.
