Graham Potter's team finished the first round of the English championship in the standings' middle, the tenth place with 29 points. Now the gap from the league championship zone is ten points.
Fulham was quite good in the last two matches of the English Premier League, but Marco Silva's team failed to earn points.

Then, Fulham lost at home to Tottenham; both encounters ended with the same score of 0:1. Fulham ranks seventh in the EPL with 31 points. This week, Marco Silva's team exchanged goals with Sunderland in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Expert Betting Tips
Chelsea continues to spend a crazy amount of money on the squad. In the upcoming game, Enzo Fernandez, who moved to the Blues from Benfica Lisbon, should appear in the lineup. Fulham will be an unpleasant opponent for the hosts of their poor results in the last three games (two in the EPL and the previous game in the FA Cup). In the center of the field, the main problem for the Blues' offense will be the Portuguese Palhinha, rightly considered one of the best halfbacks in the current EPL campaign.
It is worth highlighting an exciting fact regarding Chelsea's form in the first half: only the worst, Southampton, who is in last place, scored fewer goals in the first half of home games than the Aristocrats. Considering the transfer policy and acquired players, pressure on Chelsea will increase with each unsuccessful performance. Right now, Potter's team is not ready to beat Fulham.
